I love coffee shops. I love coffee shops with good drinks and cakes, after all they're coffee shop right? Lol. But apart from the good coffee and pastries, what I love about coffee shops is the ambiance and the staff. And yeah, also the availability of power sockets and wifi. :))
When I was in college, I used to frequent Starbucks with my friends. It was kind of the automatic meeting place whenever we were meeting up, it became our to go to place when we had long breaks from school, most especially when they opened a branch at SM Manila. But you know, as much as I love Starbucks, I kind of don't like staying there. I mean, if I were to meet a friend for a chat over coffee, I would not pick Starbucks as the location. I looooove their coffee and their sandwiches, but it's just too crowded. I don't even understand how the heck some people get to study at Starbucks! Haha!
So anyway, my point is, there's this (not so) new coffee shop in town that I love! It's called Chicco di Caffe located at SM Manila. I think they only have 2 shops in the Metro, one at SM Manila and the other one at Robinson's Galleria. The coffee shop started in Davao and has so many branch there and as well as in other parts of Mindanao. What I love about Chicco di Caffe, apart from coffee and cakes, is the ambiance of the cafe. It can be crowded, but it's not noisy/chaotic. Haha! It's a coffee shop where I can go sit and read book without getting distracted by noisy people. Lol. Most of the people who go there, based on my visits, are those in a meeting, those who want a place to study uninterrupted, those who want an intimate chat over drinks and cakes and those who just one to get away and be alone for a while -- like me! :))
Okay, enough of the words, I might be boring you right now, so I might as well stop and let the photos do the talking.
So these two were my first orders from the cafe. I fell inlove with Queso De Bola Cheesecake right away. I ordered the same cake during my next visits. Tood bad they're not selling it anymore, according to one of the staff, it's not saleable. :(
Green Tea Cheesecake
Dulce De Leche Cheesecake. This is the best next to Queso De Bola. At least for me!
Belgian Choco Cheesecake
Oh, this is not a paid post! HAHAHA! I just really love Chicco Di Caffe and I couldn't help but rave about it. I've been wanting to do this since I first Chicco Di Caffe experience, but I was on blogging hiatus then! But you know, it is always better late than never!
