Enjoyed my afternoon sipping a hot caffe mocha P105 and munching on a few treats with new found friends earlier. First time to visit this coffee shop in my neighborhood and recommending this to friends who need a place to study or meet up over a cup of coffee or tea. Students can also take advantage of their complimentary WIFI while working on their paper or research.
What we ate:
I like pasta prepared al dente, but what we got isn't exactly what I wanted. Pesto pasta also comes with tuna and cream which overpowers the leafy flavor of basil. Management may want to consider tweaking their recipes to be more appealing to Filipino customers. As for the dessert, I am delighted with how they served this cake with generous amount of mallows and has the balance of bitter and sweet for the filling and crust. Definitely worth a try with their signature coffee. As the saying goes, coffee drinkers make better lovers.

Coffee lovers and bookworms, rejoice! There is a new place where you can enjoy good food and good reads. Located at the ground floor of Pinnacle Building in Congressional Avenue Extension, you will find a bright and relaxing cafe called Coffee Book.
If you’re new in the area, the cafe isn’t hard to find. The cafe’s facade showcases a colorful signage plus a wide glass window giving you a simple peek inside. So what’s inside this bright and relaxing cafe, you ask? Well, everything both bibliophiles and coffeephiles need!
Comfy Chairs and Books
Every bibliophile needs a good book and a relaxing ambiance. Coffee Book has got you covered. They have a wide selection of books and magazines you can borrow. You can enjoy reading them or your own books in their comfy orange and yellow green chairs. But if you prefer the sofa they have that, too. And if you are bringing your laptop or e-Reader, no worries because they have a suitable area with easy access to sockets.
Bibliophiles get hungry, too! If you love breakfast, you would be happy to know that the cafe offers affordable all-day breakfasts such as Beef Bacon, Cajun Chicken, Chicken Longganisa, Corned Beef Guisado, Organic Bangus, Organic Spanish Sardines, Signature Beef Tapa, and Turkey Spam.
I was able to try the following: Signature Beef Tapa, Chicken Longganisa and Cajun Chicken
The Signature Beef Tapa is fine but I prefer the Cajun Chicken and Chicken Longganisa. Though simple, both of these are delicious and are quite flavorful.
Besides all-day breakfast options, Coffee Book also serve pasta – Creamy Pesto, Fettuccine Alfredo, Lasagna Supreme and Mexican Style as well as sandwiches – BBQ Chicken Burger, Crocodile Sausage Sandwich and Grilled 3 Cheese. If you just want some light snacks, they have some crispy and tasty starters – Calamares, Crispy Fries, Mozzarella Sticks, Nachos, Potato Wedges and Twister Fries perfect while reading a book.
Coffee & Mocktails
Need a boost? Coffeephiles will surely love the cafe’s latte and frappe options as well as tea. I love coffee which is perfect for the sweets they offer. But what caught my attention was their interesting selection of Summer’s Best Mocktails.
Mocktail, an abbreviation for “mock cocktails” is a nonalcoholic drink. It consists of a mixture of fruit juices or other soft drinks. Coffee Book serves Cucumber Lychee Mojito, Lemon Grass Chiller, Peach Paradise Tea, Peach Queen, Pinacolada, Sangria, Spring Fizz, and Virgin Cuba Libre. Since it’s almost summer, I opted for their Lemon Grass Chiller and Pinacolada. I have to say that these two are the best mocktails for our kind of weather!
Are you ready to sip, bite and read at Coffee Book? If you will be commuting, you can ride the COMET (City Optimized Managed Electric Transport). The shuttle passes by the area daily. But if you have a car, that won’t be a problem because they have a parking space available.

A small cafe along Congressional which offers snack, rice meals, coffee and non-caffeinated beverages... It's nice and quiet and I think students will appreciate the place-- conducive to studying, opens early/closes late, with budget friendly prices... Sockets available... Wifi is free but it's slow; poor pocket wifi signal inside the store... If you don't mind parking on the street, there's ample parking here...
I tried the Peppermint latte and I was surprised at it's greeness... Pantone color of the year levels. I had to ask if there was an espresso shot in the drink (there was). It was very heavy on the mint syrup, idol ang Stork candy. But it did wake me up... I'll try another drink next time, but I will definitely consider coming back... I have yet to try their rice meals and pasta... So there is no need to leave the store if you need to pull an all-nighter. Pastries available as well...
The staff were really nice. Forgot to ask if they have nonfat or soy milk options though... Note: no restroom inside the store... Rating based on the drink, I liked the place...

Please don't let all the negative vibes in you see this place as no hope of becoming a likable cafe.
The ambience is good from the start. You see it really warm from outside. Its orange and brown interior is really inviting. Then came the tables. At first it was as okay to see a plastic woven table and chair--it's comfy to sit at. Until the server served me water. Oh no. Customers should be extra careful because the glass and water pitcher might fall. Kasi it's just woven plastic. Bawal mashadong magalaw.
"So what's the difference between this and cafe mocha" i asked. The nice barista told me that the cafe mocha got whip cream. The chocolate macchiato got a foam latteart. How nice. Then you have to mix it as well since the chocolate is lying at the bottom of the paper cup--yes---point B--- paper cups. They don't have glass coffee cups.
Smores pie? They recommended this to me. Yes, it's delicious but too sweet! But i think those sweet loving kids would love it. I dont know how many sacks of sugar in intake that night. I just came from the gym and literally thought i think i should ho back to burn more cals. Hehe. I was enjoying its gooey chocolate base until i chewed on some waxed paper-- ay.
The servers are really nice, but a bit clumsy. The decorations are not yet ready. The servers were actually cutting place mats, putting on some more decorations...
E kabubukas lang naman kasi nila kahapon. That's why. But isn't it exciting to see this cafe improve??
I will be back to check their MOCKTAILs. Oha!
