Their tiramisu would've been overwhelming if two of my friends and I hadn't shared this dessert. So I'm glad we did. My friend had their mocha latte, which she said was quite good.

Enjoyed coffee time with friends, post-movie date.

Location-wise, it has both good and bad points. It's located near an elevator so sounds can get pretty noisy. It's near the old atrium and so you have a view of that, but nothing much else. The upper floors have a view of this place, so it's a little unnerving.

I ordered the hot chocolate and belgian chocolate cheesecake (see photo). The cheesecake was delicious, I really liked the taste of the dark belgian chocolate, it worked well as a cheesecake. The hot chocolate wasn't bad as well, though I felt it was a little overpriced for the size of the mug.

Service-wise, very disappointed. Despite this place being compact and small, I feel that servers here could be more competent. There were so many instances where we had to wait like minutes before we could catch the attention of any server. I once asked for water for our table, which was acknowledged, but I had to follow-up on it much later on because no one came. Considering that our table was right by the counter...ugh. Noticed that some servers are not at all attentive at times.

Also, their menu needs a make-over. It's starting to fall apart.

I'd maybe give other branches another chance, but I wouldn't be enthusiastic to come back to this branch..though my friends like their food.

Visited to celebrate long planned meet and greet/catching up with close friends.

We tried their P275/head pizza and pasta all-you-can!

Pizza - on a pre-made thin crust. Typical that's like a store bought. Small size, cut into 4 and with only 2 or 3 choices. Just so-so. Nothing too much to look forward to. But if your just for filling, then it would be of a great value.

Pasta - 3 choices also in a spaghetti noodles. Super sampler size per serving. They don't bother to serve it numerous times than giving enough portions per serving at one time.

I like the flavor of tomato-based one than the other two - carbonara and creamy pesto. But generally, 3 we're all good! Just a caution: a little bit salty! But I hope, they will serve it a little more hotter. Noodle for me is too firm. Which for me seems undercooked.

Iced tea - expensive for its size. Not good tasting! Very floral and not refreshing.

Overall, it was an affordable one. But having very limited option will give you a taste-fatigue. And you'll opt to stop!.

Best cortado ("caffè macchiato" as it's called in Spain) in town! I always drop by here for their good coffee and to grab a bite (for example, their egg sandwich).

An italian founded resto by Francesco Illy in 1933 and now being handled by Andrea Illy (third generation of the family). You'll love their desserts, not only their cakes. And you must try their cookies and creme smoothie, as well as their strawberry flavored one...not only their coffee. Though food and drinks are kinda costly 128522

My first badge yay for being a Coffee Head!

Anyway, I'm still hurt that Haagen Dazs was taken away from me but they replaced it with this coffee shop. I generally like hanging out here and just talking with your friends although the people passing by on the escalator can be pretty distracting unless you see some eye candies lol 128518

Ordered their blueberry cheesecake since I was craving for one the entire day. The cheesecake itself is pretty good but I didn't like how gooey the blueberries were on top blegh didn't like the consistency.

The belgian chocolate one was really yummy though kind of like a chocolate mousse and it wasn't nakaka-umay.

Okay so I left my blackberry here and I didn't know that I did. I kept calling it with my iphone at the last minute one of the servers picked up and said that it was still with them. Thankfully it wasn't stolen since it took them a while before they noticed that there was a phone. They were really nice and accommodating 128076

What used to be Haagen Dazs is now Espressamente Illy... Yay for great coffee 9749

Weird that there was only one person manning the whole area of about 10 tables. Good thing he was able to do everything! 128076
