During my recent solo trip in Vigan, I wanted to try a local coffee shop and came across Coffee Break along Salcedo St.

The ambiance was cool and I love that they have a little mezzanine area with bean bags where you can rest after a long day ot strolling. I ordered Iced Mocha and got disappointed! :( They will also charge you if you use their outlet to charge your fone.

Will most likely not come back here if I happen to visit again.

Already had coffee and hot chocolate the time I went there so I looked for green tea. Luckily, they serve matcha latte. Bad thing, it did not pass my taste. 128532

Nice ambiance for a small place. They have wifi but I could hardly connect with it.

Matcha Latte at Php 110.00 - there is something missing on the taste. It's a lil bland for me. Also lacks sweetness as I like my latte a bit sweet.

Silvanas at Php 25.00 - not sure if it's ok. But it's ok. So, it's ok! Haha!

Went on a family road trip to the North around Feb and we took the Vigan-Pagudpud-Laog route. It was a really tiring trip and we didn't have any itinerary. All I knew was that I wanted to visit all three places and go to as much tourist spots as time would allow us.

Our first stop was Vigan and I would say that this place alone was worth the trip up North. A whole day was not quite enough.

While we were walking around the Heritage Village, we chanced upon Coffee Break which was one of the popular coffee shops in the area. My folks didn't want to settle there for breakfast since it was too "Americanized" and they were looking to experience as much local food as they can. That was fine and so we headed elsewhere but right after breakfast, I knew I wanted to go back to Coffee Break.

So, off I went with my daughter to get some dessert maybe and of course coffee. it was a little disappointing that they didn't have a stock of pastries and cakes when we got there. Fine. Coffee was the order of business anyway. I tried their Caramel Macchiato and got the 12oz size. Barista told me that it's their best seller. I knew I was up for a sweet coffee treat but that was okay.

When the barista served my coffee, it was overflowing with caramel sauce! I kinda got nervous coz I didn't really want a super sweet coffee but then again I told myself that it was just the presentation. As long as the coffee underneath the froth and overwhelming caramel sauce was good, I have no problems. One sip led to the next as I tried to find something special about it. Sadly there was none. The coffee wasn't as strong as I wanted I it to be. I know you'll tell me I should have asked for a brewed coffee instead if I wanted all the strong coffee goodness but then again a good brew will always stand out despite any sweet stuff added into the cup.

Anyhow, I wasn't able to finish my coffee and asked the barista for a take out cup instead.

The place though was very modern, it was like a cafe in the Metro rather than in Vigan. I wished they also went with the old world concept.

Went to Vigan with my officemate for 3 days... Went here 3 times.

First day:
Green Apple Shake/Smoothie - Love it!!! Tangy with the right hint of sweetness. I found it so refreshing after the tour.

Blueberry Cheesecake - It was OK, nothing too special. The crust was very crumbly too, probably graham crackers? Not very "cheesecake-y," more of whipped cream, blueberries, crust and that's it. But what I liked about it is that it wasn't too sweet.

Second day:
Strawberry Shake/Smoothie - Didn't like this one. T'was too sweet for me. The thing was still half-full when I stopped drinking it.

Third day:

Green Apple Shake/Smoothie - Yep, that's how much I loved it!

Grilled Cheese Sandwich - ChizWiz on a toasted bread. Not complaining because I love ChizWiz on toast but I think 70+ pesos is too high a price to pay for something like this.

Nachos - This was weird. They used some kind of chips but not nacho chips. I thought they were Tostillos or something? Nacho chips are supposed to be kind of bland right? Whatever chips they used, they totally messed up the whole thing. I was also looking forward to the oozing cheese that comes with nachos but there was... None. Zip. Nada. What they did was to grate lots of cheddar cheese on top, tossed the ground beef, tomotatoes and cabbage in and then drizzled the whole thing with mayonnaise and catchup. Uh, these are not nachos...

Gave 4 stars because of the Green Apple drink... Yep, that's how much I loved it!

Don't mind the grammar, was in a rush to post. Again.

Coffee break owes me a drink for introducing them to looloo! 128540

So this is one of the famous coffee shops in the heart of Vigan is this, Coffee Break.

For me, their ice blends are not really special. But not bad as well. Their nachos, on the other hand, is good with lotsa beef and cheese. What attracts customers, though, is their creativity. The shop is small but it's cute and cozy. It has two floors and in the 2nd floor is a small homey sala with foam chairs and low tables, and on the wall is an interesting collage of photos of a lot of customers, as well as post it messages and other similar stuff. You know, it's a good marketing strategy. Teens are easily induced with those kinds of cuteness 128512
