Tried out Bean & Yolk for dinner with one of my really good friends. She, like me, is a fan of trying something new every time we can so it's been this tradition of ours to choose a new place we both haven’t tried every time we see each other. Try that with one of your foodie friends - it really makes seeing your friends more exciting and it’ll add to your list of places to review on looloo! Hahaha.

We’re both fans of breakfast food so when we heard of a place in Poblacion that serves dishes which highlight eggs and great coffee, we had to try it! I’m going to try not to burst anyone’s bubble here but I didn’t love it. I read a lot of awesome reviews about this place but it was just alright for me. Maybe I didn’t order what I should have?

I ordered the Chorizo Mama and my friend ordered the Eggs Benedict. Serving sizes were alright. We were both able to split the two dishes so that we could try everything. Each dish is around 250 pesos or more. The bread they used for both plates were really good and the eggs were cooked perfectly - no comment there but for the Chorizo Mama, I can’t quite pinpoint if it was the dressing which was weird or the chorizo patty itself. In general though, it didn’t taste as good as a normal chorizo burger would but in this case, it was the better option. On the other hand, the Eggs Benedict was supposedly great - all of the elements were well-made except for the hollandaise sauce! That made me sad because I usually love eggs benedict. Bean & Yolk’s hollandaise was too sour. It was too acidic in taste and that’s what put me off. The eggs were poached well so that’s unfortunate 128557

If we base it on the food, it might take a while (and some convincing) for my friend and I to visit B&Y again but the coffee was really good. I tried their Flat White and no complaints there!

Been reading a lot of great reviews about Bean and Yolk and I’ve been really dying to try their sandwiches since they all look so good! Visited last Sunday for brunch and they did not disappoint. The place is quite petite – with a 15-seater capacity at the most. I would not recommend family lunches here, maybe a quiet catch up with some girl friends would be best. Interiors are easy on the eyes with subtle detail designs like the drop down lights, small plants and wooden tables.

CARA’S FAVE | Php175 1108811088110881108811088
Fried egg, mozzarella, cheddar cheese, hot honey, buttered sliced brioche

Ugh! This is sooo good! I definitely get why people are drooling over this one. Despite being a regular-sized sandwich, this was quite filling. I did not feel the “umay” effect even if it was cheese. The hot honey was able to compliment the sharp flavor of the cheese turning it to something really fun to eat. It’s so simple – cheese, egg, honey and toast – yet so perfectly delivered. Cara’s fave may as well be my fave. Two thumbs up!

MISSUS Php185 11088110881108811088
Soft scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, sriracha mayo, arugula, caramelized onions, brioche bun

That sriracha mayo does pack quite a punch. That was the first thing I noticed as I bit into it. Fan of eggs? This is the sandwich for you. The soft scrambled eggs definitely stand out and the caramelized onions gave it a nice subtle sweetness.

SMORES HOT COCOA Php155 11088110881108811088
65 percent Malagos dark chocolate, frosted fresh milk, burnt marshmallows

I’m not sure how I feel about this one. Their chocolate milk is not your usual sweet hot cocoa. I personally believe that it’s an acquired taste. I disliked it at first but as I reached the bottom of the glass, the flavors improved. Tip is to drink the cocoa together with the marshmallow.

Overall, it was a great visit. For all those near the area, or even those fairly close, this is a must try café. All their dishes were very photogenic as well. Will be back!!

Was surprised how tiny the place was. We were a family of four: one kid, one baby, so it wasn't something we would do again as a family but the food is soooo good! We'd definitely come back as a couple. It's a small restaurant serving mostly sandwiches made extraordinary with eggs! Eggs make everything special.

Loved the nuttella French toast. My top choice was the chorizo burger. Then the eggs Ben. Last place was the one with Sriracha- not a fan of spicy food. That was my husband's order.

Of course I was intrigued with all the Cara's favorite posts here so that's what I came in for.

I liked that it had cheese and honey. I wish the bread were a little more toasted, and the honey spread out evenly on the bread, not just on a certain area.

I liked the cheese they used. Egg was cooked just the way I liked it - in between soft yolk and firm.

Service was great. Very small place.

A place where you would definitely love to eat. I swear.

PLACE:

The place was small and simple.

FOOD:

Cara's Fave : THIS IS SOOO G.O.O.D. No wonder this is Cara's fave (whoever Cara is). Everything about this sandwich is sooo good. Bread was toast to perfection, the cheese and egg is so simple yet it brings perfect harmony on every bite. I would love to have this over and over again. A definite must try!

Chocolate Matcha cookie thingy : Can't remember the exact name but it's a combination of chocolate and green tea / matcha. Wasn't able to take a picture of it but I swear it was sooo good. The cookie has the right balance of crisp and chewiness on it.

SERVICE:

Friendly and accommodating. Fast service as well.

PRICE:

Super affordable and you'll definitely get more that what you paid for.

VERDICT:

Did I enjoy it? - Definitely
Will I recommend it? - Definitely
Will I come back? - Definitely YES

BEAN here x times already but whenever I visit this place, I still get so EGGcited and I just can't hide it. I don't think I'll ever get tired of this place and if there will ever be a chance I'll say "aYOLKo na dito!". 128155

We usually go here whenever we have a food tour (yup, in case you want to go around Poblacion with your barkada, follow @FoodSocietyPH's instagram account for details! 128521128521).

Anyway, this visit is different since I am with my college friends for a brunch date. 128522

As mentioned many times before, I love breakfast food a lot!! They make all things better! EGGS the best and I don't mind eating it EGGen and EGGen! I can seriously eat it EGGryday and I'll never get tired of it. Eggs are so simple but are hard to prepare. They can either make me super happy or super sad EGGspecially when they've BEAN murdered and not cooked properly. Good thing, Bean and Yolk knows how to cook eggs perfectly. They are EGGsperts! 128518 Which is why I am always happy whenever I'm here. I have never BEAN disappointed with their food/service and I never had any bad EGGsperience here so I can confidently recommend this to eBEANone. 128517128557 #cherrypo 128518

BEAN. 9749

I have already tried the Gianduja and Mocha (which are their bestsellers) so for a change, BEANili ko naman yung ICED CAPP. I was surprised I liked it because it was not that strong and bitter. The taste was just right, not too sweet nor too "watery". It was able to keep me awake and energetic the whole day. I also loved the fact that they added cinnamon!!!! Aye iced CAPPtain! 🤗

Friend #1 ordered Latte Gianduja and she enjoyed her coffee. She said it was good. This was served to her with just a simple latte art but infairness, Giandu-ja! (Ganda ah! Haha 128566128541).

Friend #2 tried the SMORE'S Hot Cocoa drink. It's a rich hot chocolate drink made with 65% Malagos dark chocolate, frothed fresh milk and topped with one huge piece of burnt marshmallow. So MARSHarap and comforting you'll end up saying "SMORE-yy diet but I want SMORE!!!". 128517 That's what she said. 128541128514

YOLK. 🥚127859

For our meals, we ordered the MISSUS, CHORIZO MAMA, and MOLLY.

First one was MOLLY and HOLY MOLLY GOOD GOLLY MISS MOLLY. Why only now? It's not something I'll order again soon but it's worth my MOLLY and it was able to satisfy my truffle cravings!! This is made with mashed potato, poached egg, chives, himalayan salt, truffle oil and burnt crostini. We were unsure how to eat it and we made a mistake (i think) of not mixing it together first. Good for you if you know how to eat this. But if not, ask the friendly staffs how. 128521128077🏼

Next was the MISSUS and MISSUSmaryosep ke sarap nito!! Creamy soft fluffy scrambled eggs with sriracha mayo, arugula, and caramelized onions. MISSUS me po pero the next time I order this, aYOLKo po magshare! 128518

Last and definitely not the least is the CHORIZO MAMA and oh mama!!! Another good sandwich especially when you want something meaty and more filling. Imagine a soft buttery soft brioche bun, perfectly cooked sunny side up egg (look at the bright runny yolk), BBQ mayo, cheddar cheese and a thick tasty homemade chorizo patty. It's my first time trying this and my my, now I really know! My my, how can I resist you?

Dear Diet, is it too late now to say CHORI??? Because no matter how much I try to avoid eating too much meat (processed meat), I just can't.

If you're still thinking where to have breakfast... Start your day here and you're guaranteed that EGGS gonna be a good day. 🤗128077🏼

New YOLKKKK! Concrete jungle where EGGcellent egg dishes and coffee are made of... BEAN lights will inspire you. I swear, their coffee and sandwiches will surely make you want more because the EGGsperience is worth having EGGen. 128521

Found my new coffee haven! 128525 If you love coffee and eggs, you MUST visit Bean and Yolk in Poblacion, Makati. Been wanting to try 'em for so long and I'm happy that I finally did! Just why the hell didn't I try this sooner?! 128517

The place is really small and ideal for coffee dates and/or small group of friends. For this visit, I have the BF in tow and we ordered the following:

10024 S'mores Mocha — this is made of espresso, Malagos dark chocolate, frothed fresh milk and burnt marshmallows. I loved loved loved this drink! Aside from being seriously IG-worthy, it's amazing coffee! It's one of those drinks that hits the soul on the first sip. 🤤

10024 B&Y Mocha (iced) — espresso, milk and Malagos dark chocolate. Sheez, but this one takes the cake for THE BEST iced mocha I've ever haaaad! Not exaggerating! I really loved the rich and thick combination of the Malagos chocolate and caffeine. (But then, anything with Malagos chocolate is amazeballs!) It's creamy and not too sweet which I liked and it goes down smoothly and just left me sighing. 🤤

10024 Eggs Ben — English muffin topped with poached eggs, ham, bacon, arugula and chive hollandise. The most perfect eggs benedict, evaaaah! 128525 Everything about this dish is just perfect! I love eggs so I may be a little biased but it really is delicious! The eggs were cooked perfectly that it's legit yolk goals!

People around Poblacion have no excuse, I repeat, no excuse not to visit this place! The service was excellent too! They were really hands on and would take time to explain the items on the menu as well as offer recommendations. I just wished they'd open a bigger branch. I'm in love and I will be back! 10084

This place is so tiny! Good thing we were their only customers when visited their place for dinner on a Tuesday last month.

I've been wanting to try this place since I saw it on looloo because I love eggs! And coffee! I ended up ordering Cara's Fave, a brioche sandwich with fried egg, mozzarella, cheddar, and honey. It was so good! I love the cheese and honey combo.

I also got to try the Chorizo Mama and Farmer John. I must say, the Chorizo Mama is better than what I ordered. It's perfect for those craving for something more savory. Farmer John, on the other hand, is just okay. I'll definitely get the Chorizo Mama on my next visit.

I also ordered their cappuccino, and I thought it was pretty good.

The only downside to a place this small is the poor exhaust. You end up smelling like food after. Also, there's no toilet inside the coffee shop. You can use the one inside the building though but it's so gross.

Also, I think this place looks better during the day.

If you love eggs, READ UP! 127859🥚

Saw this place first from Food Society’s “gram” and got curious. Then I read Reich T.'s review on it. And then Denise J.'s. And then more reviews started popping up. And then I was like, ok people I'm not having this anymore. Legit FOMO hit me and brought me to this spot one Saturday afternoon.

The place was a lot smaller than I expected it to be. Reviews say the place is small but I didn't think it would be THAT small. It's basically a 10/15-seater place so I do not recommend bringing your family here especially if you have kids and 108 aunties.

I copied Denise J. exact order: The Lucy (Chopped 5 minute egg, chives, srirracha dressing, arugula, brioche bun) + their Flat White and was impressed. The Lucy was not too spicy and it didn't give me the itis afterwards. Their Flat White is pretty good, too! (I'm no coffee connoisseur but I'd say it's kind of like Toby's. 128556

Following Abe C.'s looloo review format:

WORTH A TRY?

Hell yez.

WORTH A RETURN?

Yes!

TIPS:

Don't bring a car. Might be difficult to find parking. I just uber-ed. Don't bring your squad if you have 7+ squad members. The place is tiny. Visit during their off-peak hours if you want peace and quiet.

VERDICT:

A good brunch spot for people who loooove eggs/breakfast food. It's pretty hidden which adds to its appeal as a hipster spot. Coffee is good, too!

Your visit will truly be worthy!
Who would have known that this little cafe tucked inside poblacion would be this awesome. Best time to visit would probably be breakfast since the ambience here is really pleasant during the morning. They open 8am daily, and it happened to be i was the first costumer

128204128525 chorizo mama @250PhP
I have to say thanks to Reich T for recommending this very delicious breakfast. I did not imagine it was a burger but i did not regret ordering it. The sunny side up runny yolk was delightful. The chorizo patty was really appetizing, tasty, and aromatic. Yeah, they have an option to make this burger into a salad order, but i know i just have to enjoy it without the greens.

128204128525 bean and yolk mocha @175PhP
Malagos chocolate plus coffee?! Perfect for the morning! Cocoa and coffee bean perfectly harmonized for the morning. I like the simple latteart that made my drink enjoyable.

As mentioned, ambience is good because of its chill simple and woody interior, there's an alfresco area whre it can accommodate about 4 pax more. Parking space of 3 right infront of the stre, but the store mentioned it can accommodate more customers by just adding tables outside should there be no cars parked.

I would love to go back and enjoy another sunny and lovely breakfast.

I've been hearing a lot of good things about Bean and Yolk here in | so I was so excited to try this out.

The place is small compared to other coffee shops. It only has 3 tables inside and another few outside. The ambiance is intimate and relaxing, just like how we spend our usual Sunday afternoon at home.

Looking at their menu, they have a nice list of drinks and food. I was actually torn between matcha and coffee but the latter won that time. Anyway, I was able to try the following.

** Flat White (150php)
This is my usual order when trying a coffee shop for the first time. I actually liked their version. The strong kick was there and it had the perfect balance of milk and coffee. It kind of reminded me the one from TB, but still my favorite would still be Restock and Toby's Estate.

** Smores Hot Cocoa (175php)
This is made with 65% Malagos dark chocolate, frothed fresh milk, and burnt marshmallows. I was able to take a sip of this and it was good! I remember it being not too sweet. Not really a fan of marshmallows, but I like its burnt texture for the overall taste of this drink.

** Cara's Fave (175php)
I'm not so sure who Cara is, but I can say that she has a taste. 128514 Her favorite has become my favorite as well. The mozzarella + cheddar cheese + egg combination was winner for me! This also has honey for that semi sweet finish. Really really good. The buttered brioche was so soft that I really enjoyed.

Service was fast and the staff were helpful in our needs especially for water refills. I also like all the artsy things inside the cafe. Very instagenic! The place is small, yes, but I think I prefer it that way. I love the third-wave but intimate ambiance it has. I would like to try other drinks and food here. Urgh, if only this is closer to my work or home. 128539

P.S. Last photo is a postcard Patrick V and I bought for Kristin A in Art in the Park. 1280699786

Visited Bean and Yolk again one Sunday afternoon after Art In The Park.

Although I find the place too small, I still like going here because of the good food! I looooove Cara's Fave! 💯 10084️ The S'mores drink that I ordered was good too. I just wish they would move to a bigger space. Sana may CR na rin para hindi na need pumunta sa lobby ng Bel-Air Soho. 128522128522128522

Bean & Yolk is my all time favorite breakfast joint. This is a lil obvious as this serves as my nth review.

Fancy some French Toast? Yeah? Head on to Bean & Yolk. Now. I mean it.

Try some of their best sellers while you're at it.

I think I've found my second favorite Flat White in the metro! Toby's Estate's is still the best for me but Bean & Yolk's comes reaaaaaally close! 9749

Aside from their legit coffee-making skills, Bean & Yolk knows how to make pretty mean sandwiches too! I'm usually not a fan of sandwiches but I can eat theirs any day. I had the Lucy and it was a party in my mouth! You get some spiciness in there from the sriracha dressing, a bit of richness from the chopped 5-minute eggs, and a whole lot of freshness from the chives and arugula. I also got to take a little bite of the Farmer John and it was also really tasty. Definitely getting that one next time! 128076

I love the ambiance here and the server (there's only one because the place is really small) is really friendly too! If I lived nearer Makati, I would so make Bean & Yolk my second home lol. 128514

Bean & Yolk remains to be my all time favorite breakfast x coffee joint. They offer the best sandwiches in the metro (put that on the record).

I got acquainted with Lucy last Saturday and i was nothing but awesome. I am gonna call this dish I love Lucy as this sums up how i felt while i was eating it. Couch Potatoes might get the Pop Culture reference.

I love Lucy!

Peace Out!
