My Top Five Local Coffee Shops in Cebu

Because I am a coffee lover, I set myself on a treat to hop in to every new cafe here in Cebu… And in just one week, I made myself available to visit five local coffee shops that Cebuanos should come to visit. Undeniably, Internationally franchised coffee shops are all over the place, but it is still worth every penny to spend and taste our local produced coffee beans.

Every cafes I visited has its own special touch to showcase its own branding to the limelight of the Cebuanos. But the most prominent factors like courteousness, friendliness and being hospitable are all present in our own coffee shops too.


And my top five are:

4. PhiloSophia: A library cafe that shelters the books about Cebu. I am amazed of how this cafe gives us significant information about Cebuanos and Cebu. Every Cebuano must visit the place as their books help you to understand your roots and your identity. It is such a joy to have this special place meant for us. Visit them along M.C. Briones Street in Mandaue City.

5. Crate Cafe: an attractive little cabin that perfectly suits its location at Busay, Cebu City. A destination cafe that serves only Philippine coffee beans from Baguio. From where you sit while having a sip of your arabica coffee is a perfect view of the sun dipping behind the crest of the mountains. City lights exuding the beauty of what this cafe has to offer. Crate Cafe is open from Tuesdays to Fridays at 1:00 pm to 10:00 pm ; Saturdays and Sundays at 7:00 am to 10:00 pm

Great customer service precedes the quality of coffee served with a smile and love. Certainly, Filipinos are best known for being hospitable; therefore, It is no challenge to keep the people coming back and make them feel at home.
