Whether caffeine is your daily non-negotiable or cafes are your haven for getting things done or catching up with friends, finding out there’s a coffee spot near you is one of the best feelings. Being the coffee curious that we are, we wandered around Makati to hunt for good coffee in unexpected places so you won’t have to.
As ironic as it may sound, recharging your energy can be more worthwhile in the calm and quiet. So, take your coffee break in this minimalist space found in the midst of the hustle and bustle. If you’re just casually passing or driving by the streets, you would only realize it late that there’s a coffee shop through the glass window. But, when you do stop and step into the cafe, it’ll soon be your go-to.

While walks and picnics in green parks sound romantic and sweet, another dreamy way to make your day is sipping coffee in a lush pocket garden. The taste of unique drinks and merienda flavors just get better with the fresh scene in the middle of a busy street. It’s a hidden little coffee paradise you wouldn’t believe is in your neighborhood, unless someone has let you in on this secret.

Stepping into the atelier, you’d see different fabrics and textiles and converse with the ladies. After a few minutes of browsing through the pieces and designs, you’d be invited to take a sip if locally-sourced coffee. You may have not expected a little coffee nook inside an atelier, but it’s a pleasant surprise that just makes the experience better. It’s always a yes for coffee and art!
