One of the hotspot destinations in Manila last year. This was established last year and the vibe here is so extra!!! Super loved the ambiance outside and romantic at night.

What we loved aside from the ambiance is that they are supporting locals by using local coffee grounds. Can’t wait to visit again and see the improvements in this coffee shop.

Watch our short clip here:


One of the minimalist coffee shops we’ve been to! This is usually a takeout coffee shop before. Now, they have more seats available since we are allowed to do alfresco dining.

Super loved the coffee here, especially the Mood Shifter. Plus, we commend the minimalist cup here!


One of the recent minimalist coffee shops we visited before the second lockdown. Super love this small, takeout coffee shop in Fairview! They were just taking orders online before, but many of their customers requested that they should open a branch. And tada, the rest is history!

Aside from the outside look of their coffee shop, we loved the packaging of the coffee. And yes, they are still open for delivery and still offer promo bundles. Oh, before we forgot, all drinks are below 99 PHP!


We know coffee is all we need, but how about if there’s a choice for wine, too? Wine not!? Here at Kalinaw Coffee Co, you can have the best of both worlds (coffee and wine). At first, they were just an online store offering coffee drip bags until resellers came in, and the rest is history! They now have a physical store.

We also commend them for supporting other SMEs inside their store! Good job, Kalinaw Coffee!

PS: They are offering UNLI WINE here!

A newly opened minimalist coffee shop near our place!!! So happy. The interior of the cafe is so aesthetic. Very instagrammable and picturesque. Can’t wait for this ECQ to be lifted so we can visit again and dine in.

The baristas will ask you if you like your coffee to be strong or milky. So that’s a plus for us.

Looking for some coffee and the trending “egg drop sandwich”? Here in Corner Cafe, you can have them both! Aside from these, the ambiance here is giving you a chill and cozy vibe. This cafe is located near Sto. Domingo. Aside from coffee and sandwiches, they also have rice meals and pasta here.
