Last March, we celebrated Ian’s birthday. Two days before his birthday, I’m already looking for a perfect place to celebrate his special day. While I’m browsing my FB feed, I searched for some nearby restaurants in Quezon City. Then I saw this recommended cafe in Mother Ignacia.
ABOUT KANDLE CAFE
This is owned by the 4 siblings namely Khryss, Don King, Leslie, and Eli, wherein two of them are chef. In case you are wondering where the name came from, just look at the initials of their name. HIHI.
From outside, you can’t believe it’s a cafe unless you see their logo. It looks like a function area which is also true. They cater special and private events.
But as you walk to the entrance, you’ll be amaze by the garden-inspired ambiance. They have a waterfall-like structure outside.
Upon entrance, one of the staff will immediately assists you. They will ask you if you have a reservation (yes, they accept reservation) which we did.
Also, you will be amazed by the interior inside.
Their tables come in different sizes which is perfect for couples, solo, or friends hanging out. I also noticed that some of the customers are students who are studying. I find their ambiance a perfect place for studying. Also, they have a high-speed internet inside.
Since they are a third-wave coffee, they offer specialty coffees and other special drinks. They also have a wide variant of food to choice.
They offer desserts too.
Now, here are some of the food we had during Ian’s birthday. We almost ordered all of their best seller dishes.

The food was good. We didn’t appreciated it that much because the food were already cold because we took pictures first. HUHU. Our bad. But I love their Cheesy QC Maki and drinks! I might try their desserts next time. But the ambiance really gave me chill. Perfect for a romantic date night or just a simple chill night with friends. Or maybe your study place too. You choose :)
