I've read a blog before about this cute, colorful place called Café Caw in Banilad from one of my favorite bloggers, Mustachioventures. I haven't exerted any effort to visit the place since it is situated far from where I live. However, when this Korean coffee shop opened another branch in SSY Business Center in Lahug, I told myself that I will visit this petite shop soon and it happened last weekend.
I was able to catch up with a good friend and decided to have dinner. Since Café Caw is just a coffee and pastry shop, we decided to have our dinner first somewhere else and just go back to have coffee after.
I was excited to take photos but only to find out that my phone ran out of battery, as in drained. I need to invest a good camera soon or if someone is generous enough to give me one, I would appreciate it. LoL! Good thing my friend, Jandy brought her camera phone with her and I was able to take photos.
The facade of this shop looks like a playhouse and looking at the logo, it's like a drawing of a kid that is so cute!
I was amazed to see that they are selling cupcakes. They have green tea and red velvet that time. They also have mug cakes, an enormous chocolate cake and some petite, weird-looking desserts.
This shop is also full of knickknacks and small, cute stuff. Mustachio, you might want to take photos of your toy right beside their trinkets.
Also, I like the inspiring message that is written on the stairs before going to the second floor.
Since we were very full, we only ordered coffee and nothing else. I was thinking that I'll just go back to try their desserts some other time. And we ordered...
|Dark Choco Truffle Freeze - Php135.00|
|Vanilla Latte - Php110.00|
I just can't help but be proud of this café not because it is simply cute but it is relaxing as well. You can just stay there, chill and talk anything under the sun with your friends or someone special.
To give you an idea what it looks like upstairs, I took some photos from the site of the interior designer, HL Designs. Credits to the interior designer for the photos below.
You will be able to see a lot furnitures and fixtures in different, playful designs in pastel colors. The chairs, tables, lamps and even the mirrors are of different shapes and hues that compliment each other for a soothing and relaxing ambiance.
I'd like to thank my friend, Jandy for spending that evening with me. It was so nice catching up with her despite our busy work schedules. We took a photo before our orders were served.
I will definitely visit this coffee shop again to try their desserts and other baked goodies. Have you already been to this place? Let me hear your thoughts.
