Cool Beans Cafe

5 Comments

As mentioned in yesterday’s Tweedle Book Cafe post, I have been able to visit other book cafes in Metro Manila during this trip. I really like the trend of book cafes popping up all over the metro, and I’m sure I would hang out at these locations on a regular basis if I was still based in Manila. One of the cafes that I’ve been wanting to visit for a while now is Cool Beans Cafe, which I discovered when I watched the Filipino romantic comedy English Only, Please. Some scenes from the movie were shot in that location. I visited Cool Beans with my mom when we found ourselves in that area one evening.

Dinner was Vigan longganisa penne and herb-crusted creamy dory

To be honest, I was surprised with how small the place was. We were lucky that we even got a table. I guess part of the charm of the cafe is its coziness. I definitely would have loved this cafe as a student! Given the size of the place, I’m not really sure if it’s a location where you can stay and read for hours. I’d say it’s worth a visit if you’re into book cafes (like I am).
