The college feel continue in this coffee shop just along P Noval beside UST. I love how the place looks. Rustic and feels like a korean coffee shop. The 2nd floor has a bigger space and power outlet are everywhere. Also this place has a library kind of atmosphere with a mellow-bossa nova background music. Everyone in here are quiet and you could only hear very soft whisper from other table. Very suitable for studying. I ordered their cafe mocha. Nothing special and a little bit sweet for my tastebud. But if you are looking for coffee shop to study this is a perfect place. 128522

Sansrival for P140. The slice was big but it's too sweet and dragging. Good for sharing over a strong coffee to balance the stimulation you provide your taste buds with.

French toast for P140. It was too sweet with a strong taste of condensed milk and chocolate syrup. It was not the typical french toast I knew of which should have been cooked in a pan with milk. 128547

During the bar exams last month this place became our bar site for four sundays. My friends and I stayed here while waiting for our barristers and we noticed that 99% of the people here are students. If you'll check it's second floor most of the students from University of Santo Tomas and other schools nearby stay here to study, work on their project and some prepares for their group thesis. #12Days

My personal rating for this coffee shop:

Ambiance 10/10
Food 7/10
Drinks 5/10
Price 3/10

For a food critic like me, I'll only give three stars for this coffee shop. Considering the taste of the food and drinks which seems to be too ordinary for their price. It tastes like a 3-in-1 sachet coffee and the food are same as those which you can buy in the canteen. Yes, the ambiance is really great especially for students like me who can appreciate a coffee shop like this, so perfect to be a study place!

I just convince myself that these coffee shop might have a pricy drinks and food for it's taste but it is still worth it considering it's ambiance.

I legitimately forgot what I ordered here, but all I know that it is a cold latte. I think what's good about Cafe Kivhan is that it's not part of the mainstream coffee line aka Starbucks, CBTL, Seattle's etc. Having a large space and a secondary floor, you can actually study here without any distraction from other nearby people. The menu prices seems to be fine & affordable and won't easily hurt your pocket!

Overall rating: 7/10

This is just the same review I had made in Zomato, please do follow me: @heyitspaul!

Their coffee wasn't that impressive. They've got coffee that are bland and some are just too sweet. Also, some of the staff are 'masungit'. I don't know what's their problem, but I think they should've answered their customers simple queries or requests. Though the cafe's main target is students, I think they should also pay attention to their first-timer customers.

Good, strong iced Americano. Long hours, big tables, perfect for late-night study sessions. I think they close at 3am? I don't know; I couldn't make it that late.

If you're around UST area and you need a place to study and just chill, Cafe Kivhan is the place to go. They have spacious tables and chairs to keep you comfortable. This is a big plus for me because i'm the type who lays out a lot of things on the table when i study (hehehe). The place is packed especially in the afternoon but dont worry the place is big (having two floors).

I like the frappes! Another reason to come back because of the extensive menu of drinks that they have :)

P.S. No free wifi and bad signal reception (this may be ideal if you're studying for an exam = less distractions) 128077

Went here as per my best friend's recommendation. After eating at Yvan Navy, we went to this cafe to have a chill spot for conversations. So again because it's holiday, only about 4 customers were inside. Definitely a chill and peaceful night. 128513

The place is huge! It has plenty of chairs and tables and it even has a 2nd floor! Wow. Haha. From what I observed, it is owned by Koreans.

The interiors are nice and homey. As for their drinks, it tasted quite okay. I ordered Caramel Macchiato and my friend ordered Strawberry Frappe (?). Not good in remembering its names. Lol. I should order their frappes next time and the cakes looked good too. The staff were very attentive as well!

The dog is drinking my coffee!128513

It was my first time here with my brother and I brought my furry friend with us for this excursion... I went inside the store to ask if I could bring my dog into the store with us... The staff were okay with it, since he's a small dog, but alas, all the tables were occupied with students studying, probably for their shifting exams... No worries, I get it completely... 128522

I ordered the Chocolate Hazelnut Frappe for my brother and the Caramel Macchiato for myself... Again no nonfat or soy option here... I also noticed that they were selling a variety of food, from Belgian waffles to pasta... And they have very tempting cakes on display as well... Plus their new Granita line looks interesting too... Maybe next time!128522

I liked this place for studying, as it was quiet inside, with okay lighting and they already offer food so no need to go out... The place is very comfortable, with a sort of industrial homey feel due to the mix of cement floors and wooden chairs... The staff seemed used to the many students that hang out there and I like that they encourage them to stay there...128077

My dog had a chair all to himself outside, so we were happily drinking our orders... No, he didn't get an order, but he did make friends with the other customers...128522

The frappe was okay, so was the macchiato, a tad expensive for the taste... Still cheaper than Starbucks die to the size of the cups handed to us... But not too bad if you intend to stay... Btw, the coffee pretty much woke me up!128513 usually caffeine doesn't have a strong effect on me anymore, so it's good for studying...

Good luck on your exams guys!128522

I really love love love this place. I came back here together with my friends to have a review for the upcoming departmental exam. It's really a place for those people who really want to study in a peaceful manner. Hahahaha!

I ordered their Garlic Toasted Bread and Egg (dunno if that's the real name tho 128514) the egg is a bit salty pero creamy. Masarap pa din naman, medj nag-blend kasi yung salty and creamy taste nung egg. Yung garlic bread, literal na may garlic. Hahaha! The usual garlic bread kasi na alam ko yung parang bread sa greenwich (is that even a garlic bread? Mukha kasi 1285149996️) The whole dish is good! :) medyo mahal (para sakin na nagtitipid) the price is 130 pero nakakabusog kung mabagal kumain hahahaha!

Overall, maganda talaga siya for review and iba talaga yung ambiance nung place. Wala nga lang signal. Hahahaha! Definitely coming back for moooooore... Review. Hahahaha! 128514128514128514

This is my second time to be here in Cafè Kivhan and I really love the ambiance of this coffee shop. Their furnitures is very unique and it's a quiet place, perfect place when you want to study for exams.

I just don't like their cakes, I think when I order their cake(dunno the name hahaha) medyo luma kasi medyo matigas, or ako lang talaga choosy? Hahahaha! Anyway, the rest is great! :))

I highly recommend this place if you really want to study for your exams. Walang masyadong signal kaya walang istorbo. Hahahaha! 128522

It's time to join the loop of the well known reveiw center cafeteria in U-belt manila. Lol 128513

Well, the place was cozy and somewhat has its quiet ambiance for a usual cafeteria has, bringing a very good mood to study. Plus peeps there are really somewhat very focused and serious that obviously we should because it's exam week. With their big cups of coffee they have in their table is really a good passes to stay until 2am for closing.

Well.. Well.. As I was saying, the mood there didn't give me such magic to study there so I take-out my CHOCO LAVA CAKE!!!!
CHOOCOOO LAVAAA CAKEEEEE. 128149
It was good, so good, the whole thing didn't give me that umay factor at all. Rating it 4 out of 5 because there will always be room for improvements esp to the bread mixture.

Nuff said. I've miss sharing reviews in Looloo. Till next time. 128536

I love the concept of the place, it looks very comfortable. But I didn't like their blended coffee drinks because they were too sweet. They should've installed free wifi too and Globe's signal inside the cafe was weak. But I think it's a very nice place if you just want to study there or read since they do not have wifi and signal, you can focus well 128522128514
