Recession Coffee Flat White


A and I thought that Recession Coffee's "pay-what-you-can" scheme for their EDSA BDG brews is genius. It is the perfect opportunity to experience astounding coffee (we had Dark Matter Theory Flat Whites!) at a price you nominate. So whether you have budget for a third wave cuppa or you can barely keep up with your expenses, remember that this gem in Eastwood Mall is there to be your sanctuary from mediocrity. The best part is that it is within your reach. Just make sure to pay more when you already can. 


SGD Omelette and Black Coffee

I just had the freshest veggie omelette I have ever had here at SGD Coffee. Thanks to a navigation app, I was able to find this gem of a cafe near the Maginhawa foodie area. I was hungry from my workout, so I was keen to try a heavy breakfast in a place I have never been to before. Good thing I have decided to eat here because it has a rustic mountain feel which instantly sets the mood for chilling out and slowing down. 


Their SGD Omelette is to die for. It has fresh vegetables and three eggs, and even their basil is otherworldly. I am not used to eating veggies this fresh and crisp. It is worth the price of Php230, which includes this cup of SGD Black. 


It is the type of black coffee which you do not tamper with milk and sugar. It is that awakening and smooth. This is coffee in HD. 


This place needs more love! Do visit them at 45 Maalalahanin Street, Teacher's Village, Quezon City. They also have a dreamy Instagram account. Do visit them soon and try their food and coffee!

Where's Marcel? Flat White

I wanted both coffee and a different environment for lunch. I wanted to go somewhere I have never been to so I decided to go to Where's Marcel?, an Aussie third wave cafe along Pearl Drive. I ordered a flat white and sat by the shared meeting table, which was inspiring to say the least. 

Flat white and feels

Flat white and feels

The flat white was satisfyingly awakening, as far as single origin blends go. I was fascinated by their ambience, so I whipped out my Traveler's Notebook and sketched using ordinary ballpoint. The exercise was soothing and relaxing.  

We all need to visit a new place every once in a while. Where's Marcel? certainly did not disappoint! I will definitely be back, as I was intrigued with their bulletproof coffee.
