Giving only 2 stars bec of the service. 128533 Server was masungit and obviously impatient when we were asking about their coffee, since their menu didn't have any descriptions.

Super loved it! We came in late like after the fireworks show. Had dinner first then came here. They were closing already so they served our coffee in take out cups. And why sisters were sad cos we wanted latte art so the server said sorry, I was gonna rate it at 3 stars but he came back with a free drink and a latte art for my sister! Great customer recovery 1108811088110881108811088️ Kuddos! Awesome customer service 128077

This place never hits the right spot for me but nonetheless, I keep coming back because of its' convenience and space. Ordered a banana muffin, salted caramel with chocolate chiffon cake and a cappuccino.. Everything I got was just okay. The cake was a bit dry but the muffin I liked better. :) Missing the good old days when Haagen Dazs was still situated here 128542

White toblerone cheesecake: not so sweet.
Capucino something (i forgot the name): not sweet, string coffee taste. It just feels right! The other one with sprinkled powder is caffe tiramisu (my father drank it, he said it is better than my beverage).

To be honest I hate going to MoA. There's just way too many people!

Mom and her sisters were begging me to go and I just went with it.

And since it was already late in the afternoon, my mom and her sisters were craving for their afternoon coffees. Sadly, every single place in this freakin' mall was full! 128529

We went up and Illy had a table free so all 8 of us just worked with what we had.

The service was quite slow. My aunts and mom got their coffees and I just ordered a coke and it took them 3 follow-ups just to serve it.

The cake was okay, nothing special.

I like their branch in ATC. It's a lot cozier. This place is just too congested.

Since Starbucks was full, we ended up having coffee upstairs after our family lunch. When I first passed by it before lunch, I was thinking "Hmm maybe we should try that place for coffee!" And so we did! (Some awesome foreshadowing)

Their coffee is decorated on top. You know, like the foam part. Kinda cute. Also they serve 2 pieces of biscotti in a shot glass along with any espresso coffee. I didn't order a coffee though (quite ironic), I decided to order a Vanilla Caramel ice-blended drink. And to go along with it, we shared a Tiramisu (photo above). When the Tiramisu was served, our waitress poured the coffee on top of it. Some amazing technique there brought upon curiosity and interest among us. And that unusually shaped cream on top? I mean who wouldn't be amazed with such presentation! Well.. except for my cousin who commented "Broas lang yan!" And true enough, one bite affirmed what he said. Just plain Broas with cream on top. Didn't even taste the coffee!

As for my drink, the Vanilla Caramel, well I liked it. Lately I've been craving all treats that are vanilla, like sundae, milkshake, etc. so this drink made me satisfied enough. Plus the drizzled caramel was some added value. Sweet and satisfying!

As for the place itself.. The seats we cozy, wide couches circling the area but since we were 10 we couldn't all fit. The location, well let's just say it wasn't that good since there was some event happening earlier a floor below us so we barely got to hear each other talking because of the loud speakers.

Should I recommend this place? It's a good place for meetings I guess because of the cozy seats or when Starbucks is full (haha). But I don't think I'll come here again next time.

Oh yeah! I regret not using my Zap card here :( sayang 5% cash back points! In case you don't know what a Zap card is, check it out here: http://zap.com.ph

Had the Frappe Al Caffe for 145 php and their Low Sugar Carrot Cake for 195 php. Coffee was nice and strong and the cake slice was generous. True to the menu, the carrot cake wasn't too sweet and still tasted quite good! :)

FOOD:

Boston Cream Doughnut: The worst doughnut I've ever tasted in my entire lifeee! It isn't the melt in your mouth kind of doughnut, it isn't even close to a soft bite! I swear it's too tough I had a hard time eating it. It's too rough and airy and I don't exactly know how to describe it. Sobrang luma na yata nito. :( Oh at yung Boston Cream, halos wala. Hindi katulad ng iba na halos tumulo na yung fillings. Even for just Php40, hindi na ko uulit bumili. I mean Starbucks sells dougnuts for this price, too, but it isn't as bad as this one.

Crazy KitKat - Ice Blended Kitkat Drink that tasted just okay. I'm torn between Nutty Nutella and this one. I'm wondering if it tastes better. The drink lacks caffeine. Ewan ko kung adik na ko sa espresso shot but this one is too bland for my coffee fix. I'm sure I'll head home with to-go Iced White Mocha from Starbucks.

Inaantok tuloy ako ngayon. Zzzzzzzzzzz.

This review is solely for the drink.

There is such a thing as a kit-kat blended drink. I am not at all a big fan of super sweet blended drinks, so I ordered their red iced tea. My friend Jansen got the kit-kat. When the order
came, I was happy with my iced tea UNTIL Jansen made
me try hers. It was OMG ANG SARAP TALAGA NIYA! So, I ditched my drink, took sips from hers instead, went back the next day to get another glass of it with my husband. Ha! inggitera!!

I present to you the saddest looking tiramisu you will ever see!!! NKKLK!

Needed to stay at a coffee place for some reading while my parents were taking care of some stuff. Saw Max Brenner chocolate/coffee place (hehe basta Max Brenner) but they were full... And because I had an awesome tiramisu experience at Illy Espressamente in Rockwell, I went there without any hesitation. They were just beside each other, btw. Their place was hot.. Well, they were located in the part of the mall where the roof (and maybe a big portion of the wall) was glass.. And it was around 2 PM. Baaaah I was sweating! And there were flies!!! 128534 Minus 1!

I don't remember the tiramisu in Rockwell being all bitter and extra extra moist and I realized how the waiter poured espresso (ALL OF IT) over the tiramisu.. He didn't even bother asking me. It was all soggy.. And sad. 128554 No wonder tiramisu A (let's call the tiramisu from their Rockwell branch that) was firm and delisyoso - it wasn't flooded with espresso! 128544 Minus 2!

Ehhhhhh as for my drink, I got their Nutella drink. Ok not the actual name but it had caffeine hehe. It was good. Probably the only thing I liked from this branch.. 128533 fine plus 1.

Meeeeeehhhhhhhhhh way to ruin a perfectly fine tiramisu!!! 128529

Missing my usual coffee partner as im typing this down lol. Anyway, i can say the place is okay, nothing special. I had the cappucino freddo, meh, too sweet for me that i can taste more of the sugar than the actual coffee. Well Its just my opinion 128518

For 150 bucks i think i wouldve went for my usual Starbucks drink, if it werent TOO crowded with the non-coffee drinkers aka "tambay" i would have definitely had my dose of caffeine there. Or maybe ill try another dribk next time?

I went here during the holiday season so imagine how packed the place was. Imagine the chaos of this place with only 2 servers covering 20+ famished customers. My cappuccino and ham & cheese sandwich took forever to be served. Add to that the server forgot my husband's order and lied about forgetting it when we followed up. Service was really baaaaad, it burnt us good! I don't think we're ever returning here!

But to review the food, both the cap and the sandwich were ok. Nothing special but good enough for a famished cow :P
