Il Padrino Caffe

Il Padrino Caffe is an Italian inspired caffe and ristorante with 6 branches around the Metro. The concept behind this family-owned business involves one of their family traditions wherein after dinner, they would sit together and talk about anything over a cup of coffee. Hence, this tradition also became their inspiration to create a warm, homey and intimate ambience and they even welcome their staff and customers as part of their family. Apart from offering great coffee, have a wide range of menu — from Italian classics to Philippine dishes.

Coffee Project

With over 20 branches (one of which is located in Tomas Morato, Quezon City), the Coffee Project prides itself as the country’s ‘most Instagrammable coffee shop.’ While it may look like an ordinary coffee shop from the outside, its interiors will definitely surprise you. Although this branch isn’t their first, it has been drawing attention for its decorated ceiling, poppy chandeliers, flowers found within nooks, and some inspirational quotes on the walls of the coffee shop — making it hard for one not to take a photo in such scenery. Their best-selling coffee is the Vietnamese Latte which uses beans that are directly sourced from Vietnam!

Café Marla

Who wouldn’t want unlimited servings of frappe or brewed coffee? Café Marla attracts coffee addicts and enthusiasts with their cozy atmosphere and excellent dining experience. Most visitors would describe the coffee shop as a warm, homey place that is perfect for relaxing afternoons or evenings.

Firefly Coffee

Firefly Coffee is a third-wave coffee shop that serves espresso, handmade coffee, and milkshakes within a minimalist place inspired by Japanese designs. Their best-seller is the Cookie Butter Affogatto — a coffee-based dessert that perfectly blends cookie butter ice cream and espresso.
