This place has gotten smaller than it used to, but would remain to be one of my favorite coffee shops ever. Quiet place, plus good coffee!

Had coffee before heading back dito sa condo.
Si mama nagorder kaya hindi ko alam ano tong cake na to. Kaseeee.. hindi man masarap. 128148

Our Mocha and Caramel Frappe were quite okay. Pero feeling ko kulang sa lasa. Hindi intense yung lasa na hinahanap ko.

Mama : Kala ko masarap dito.. sana pala dun nalang tayo sa Starbucks ulit.

Edi shing. Bye!

This is gonna be a short review since I've been to this place just once and ordered a single item from their menu. Okay, so for those who are looking for a place to chill and perhaps do their homework, then this is the place for you, especially if you are around the area. We went here on a Sunday afternoon for me to try their matcha latte. There weren't a lot of people, and the place was so quiet. They have pretty interiors, too. The matcha latte was also quite nice. 128522

After mass at St. Padre Pio and buying my son's homework from Natl bookstore, looked for a coffee shop that is not really crowded where I can have my "me" time.

I wasn't disappointed when I came here because only a few are there. Asked the barista which coffee is their best seller and yep, I ordered the white mocha which wasn't bad at all. Also ordered the belgian waffle with blueberry and cheese cream but not happy. The waffle was a bit hard. Unlike the waffle of starbucks.

Well, nothing more to complain but like the place. Cozy and relaxing.

I've been hearing so much about bingsu but never thought I'd be having cookies and cream, well my daughter wants it so better give it. 128514 It has vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, crushed cookies, milk, shaved iced and red beans which I really didn't expect because of the flavor we chose. Really, nothing too special about it even the taste was just ordinary. And what makes it a bit off was the red beans, it doesn't goes well with cookies and cream, I think. The scoop of vanilla ice cream was the only thing that taste good, it was hiding inside the whipped cream. 128516

It's 34°C outside and I'm having a cup of hot White Mocha. Well, it's cozy and cold inside the store so I don't mind having a cup of goodness while waiting for my daughter to finish her summer workshop. There are lots of coffee shop to choose from but I love the White Mocha here because the sweetness doesn't overpower the white mocha flavor. Just a perfect amount of sweetness to create my perfect cup of coffee.

I miss the intense walking (or should I call it hiking?) and trekking to the university. I miss the cold breeze. I also miss all those people I met and saw who were so carefree and do not care what others think about them as long as they are having fun. I miss the adventures and misadventures. But I have this feeling that I’ll get to experience that again soon, may it be in Seoul or not.

I was thrilled when T told me that one of our favorite coffee shops finally opened a branch in Manila. Caffe Bene! (Yes, that’s with two Fs.) 10084

I went here a few times to enjoy some of their cold drinks and words can’t explain how giddy I was when I first stepped inside. I was taking photos of everything I see. Having fun is an understatement. The interiors, the cute clock, the brick walls, the unfinished look, the wooden stairs… love~~~10084

When our good friend E (who is based in Seoul) went back to Manila, we decided to have a mini reunion and Caffe Bene seemed to be the perfect place to go to.

I decided to order my favorite, Liege Waffle with Strawberry Cream (PHP145). I just loooove strawberries! I was actually contemplating if I will order gelato as well but we just came from lunch then and I was trying to cut down. 128557 For my drink, I was conservative and ordered a cup of cappuccino (PHP110, regular; PHP125, large).

The first floor was full so we decided to go up.

The place is great for meetings as there are plugs everywhere! The internet connection though was weak… very weak to the point of it not being detected at all. I guess it was because a lot of people were using it already.

After a few minutes, my order was ready for pick up. Now for the moment of truth.

The waffle was smaller than I remembered and the strawberries were not very fresh. Nonetheless, I managed to finish it in less than 10 minutes (while sipping my cup of cappuccino as well). The waffle was made fresh and it was slightly chewy. My favorite kind. The coffee was typical and not extraordinary. Maybe I should have tried a tea drink instead.

Perhaps on my next visit, I’ll try their gelato, pastry or even a cake and pair it with an interesting beverage.

I was asked by mom to fetch sister at work today. Decided to grab some snack at Caffe bene. Ordered Korean spicy tuna sandwich for php135. It was just okay. Tuna with their special spicy sauce topped with cheese and lettuce. The bread was crunchy, i like it so it's a plus! Will try next time their sandwich with salmon. 128521

Yesterday, I decided to study after a meeting in Eastwood. Caffe Bene is my go-to coffee shop there. Whenever I go to Caffe Bene, I always buy the plain yoghurt smoothie. It’s a safe and reliable choice since I already know how good it tastes. Since I had a cold, I tried the hot white chocolate mocha. It was surprisingly good. It had just the right amount of sweetness. I also tried their other drinks before but it was nothing too special. If you want to try something different, try their Misugaru latte. The barista explained that it's made of rice and barley. It may sound weird, but trust me it tastes great. And as an added benefit, its healthy as well! For me, what stands out here is the place. It is one of my favorite places to study because of its atmosphere. There are always seats available and wherever you seat, an outlet is available. The lighting is perfect for reading or studying. It also has a great atmosphere for conversation. I definitely recommend this place if you want a relaxed and quiet atmosphere! #50ksummergiveaway

A coffee chain less the crowd. Perfect place to talk about those K-Dramas you've recently watched. Anyways, If I remember it correctly, Caffe Bene is always featured in KDramas, right?

Food are delicious. The toast was great (but tasted something better in a different place). The matcha, well better than other coffee chains offer. Will definitely be back to try other stuff in their menu. Kim So Hyun standee is staring back at you!

Ordered here their choco banana honey bread and strawberry bingsu. The honey bread was yummy! It was big and good for sharing. The bread was surprisingly sweet (must be why it's called honey bread..128540) and just had the right firmness. The toppings were not too sweet as well.

However, their strawberry bingsu was not as yummy. We thought they will use fresh strawberries just how it looks in the display but no it was just strawberry jam or the preserved ones in bottle or can. Hence, it was overly sweet. Good thing, it had red beans which we like but I think it's not the best pair for strawberry. The shaved ice as well was not as fine and creamy as I expected.

The place had a cozy and easy vibe. Seen a lot of customers reading and browsing through their lappies. Staff were friendly and prices were afforable. Will go back here and try their coffee next time and of course for the honey bread!128521

Really wasn't happy with their iced blueberry latte. Don't get me wrong, i love espresso and blueberry individually but together, just not working. Even their caramel cinammon honey bread got my head wagging. Looks generously good but nothing really special about how it tastes. Flavors of caramel and cinanmon were lost in the thickness of the bread that is kind of crispy from the outside and soft (should have been softer) inside.

Plus 1 point though for their space! I particularly love the height of the place, as if provisioning a space to accomodate newly generated ideas. The interior incorporates earth tones and items that encourage an ambience fit for thinking - paperbacks, vintage clock, bookshelves and the gorgeously tangled lamps as if fireflies lighting the place. For me it's a #visualtreatbutafoodmiss

I love the place! It's so cozy, the place is not too crowded. :) Nice place to chill, watch movies or have your "alone time moment" haha. Must try Green Tea Frappe and Blue berry cheese cream waffle.

Hd their gelato liege waffle and chose the dark chocolate flavor and it was pretty good. The waffle was freshly made and the gelato was smooth and creamy all for 155. A pretty good deal since the gelato on its own was 115, just add 40 and you get a waffle. What was rather disappointing was the store itself. Their broken credit card terminal, the restroom that's out of order, the busted power sockets and the wifi that's also not working. Dear STORE MANAGER... What's the plan??? On a busy Friday holiday when parking is completely full, the owner must be wondering why the heck aren't they selling? Well, there's 4 hints to your question sir/ma'am. Hope this helps!

So after watching dozens of Running Man episodes online, I'm now here at a Korean coffee place (though the feel of the place is just the same with other coffee places 128517)

Anyway, the ambiance is great--quiet and cozy 128522 This is what coffee places should be.

I tried their white mocha coffee and I love it!128525
Their Almond Cake was also good--a must-try!128522

If you're planning for a meeting or want to study, then this is one of the places that you should try in eastwood. The coffee and pastries are good! Though the prices is a bit expensive.

By the way, Caffe Bene renovated their store. It now occupies one floor only!

I got their caramel cinnamon honey bread. It's priced at 175php if I recall it right. The serving was really big so I suggest you share yours with someone. I think this would be enough for 2-3 people (but I ate it all by myself! But hey, I didn't finish the whole thing ok??128514) because it's quite nakakaumay. I think it's overpriced for the quality of the honey bread. I'd still go for cafe shibuya!

I have 🇰🇷 hangover so I convinced my friend that we try this place haha

The cafe was big and interior was homey. It got a quiet ambiance perfect for those who want to study and think. 128513

I had the choco banana honey bread (P185).
One big toasted bread topped with banana, whip cream then sprinkled with chocolate chips. It was delicious but too sweet for my taste. I also noticed that the banana seems old.

My friend had the chicken pesto sandwich. I liked this more than my order. The chicken was tender, the bread was soft and the pesto sauce was a perfect added taste 128077

As for the service, I was quite disappointed that they don't have the initiative to give customers service water. It was also quite hard to get their attention.
