One of the nicest coffee shops / restaurants that I love near our home in Marikina is the Ground & Brew Cafe located in P. Tuazon area.

This place shall give you its legitimate homey and cozy feels that will transport you in places like bed and breakfast at Tagaytay, the Dahilyan Park Restaurant at Bukidnon etc. because of its very welcoming, calming, inviting vibes.

The high, wooden ceiling interiors give the place a very nice ventilation. The designed walls and cute and colorful clocks and other displays give it much more character than what you can usually expect.

There's this very cute fireplace set-up that is actually an accent to the restaurant / coffee shop. I can imagine myself acting like as if I am in Manhattan or New Zealand while enjoying the heat from this.

Aside from the very nice interiors, Ground & Brew Cafe serves good breakfast food, good cakes and drinks that you will certainly love.

For this visit, I tried their Marinara Pasta with Pan Fried Cream Dory and I did enjoy it. The spaghetti pasta was cooked al dente! I loved its texture, its quality overall. The marinara sauce was so good too. The combination of sweetness and saltiness came too well together and even better with the on the side garlic breads.

The Pan Fried Cream Dory was yummy! It was not oily and greasy, the tenderness and juicyness of the fish was so good too!

And yes, just like what I said in my past reviews, their Smores Cake is something that I really went back for, again and again.

The cake's smooth texture and chocolatey gooeyness make every bite so fulfilling. The icing's perfect sweetness balances all the flavors together!

Ground & Brew Cafe is definitely a nice place where one can study, chill and hang out with friends, and just find a quiet spot to forget about the crazy and noisy world outside.

To end the night, I had a night out with my dearest and loveliest girls. 127872

Just a walking distance from our home, we've experienced a somehow high-end, classy and Tagaytay like cafe here in Marikina. Its interior design felt just like home for having that welcoming and refreshing vibes which had contributed to warmth and serenity of the whole place.

But what marked to me the most in their cafe was their sugary Smores Cake for only P130. For, me it was like a work of art. Every bite was very satisfying and fulfilling. As the chocolate filling gave that toothsome feeling, it proves that it is deserving of its worth.

In line with this, we've also ordered Crispy Waffles (P100), Clubhouse Sandwich (P165) and White Mocha Coffee (130php) which I also recommend to those interested in visiting Ground & Brew Cafe. They're good for sharing and definitely worth coming back for!

Looking for a homey and cozy place that serves good cakes and drinks? You can never go wrong once you've visited Ground & Brew Cafe!

Their Smores Cake paired with the Mocha Frappe tasted so so so well that I kept on coming back for these, again and again!

The cake's smooth texture and chocolatey gooeyness make every bite so fulfilling. The icing's perfect sweetness balances the taste with the Mocha drink!

The interiors were quite cozy (wooden panels, fireplace, moosehead, yellow lights) but the sandwich sucked big time.

I ordered:
> Monte Cristo sandwich (ham and cheese)
> White Chocolate Mocha drink

The drink was alright.
But the sandwich was a waste of money (P150). The ham smelled and tasted old. The serving was small.

P.S.: The music didn'f fit well with the interior. They played jukebox OPM.

At home, calming and refreshing, this cafe makes you feel like you're at Tagaytay with their high, wooden ceiling interiors, designed with cute and colorful clocks and wall decors.

We ordered their Crispy Waffles (100php), Clubhouse Sandwich (not in photo, 165php), Sriracha Buffalo Wings (not in photo, 175php), Smores Cake (130php) and White Mocha Coffee (130php).

The waffles were huge and crispy. Their butter and syrup were perfect for it. Best for sharing and eaten when served instantly.

The sandwich lacks taste but what made it special is the grilled chicken that made it richer and yummier.

The wings lacked spicyness. I was expecting more of the sriracha taste.

The Smores Cake was the bomb! Its gooeyness was so addicting because it has so much chocolate chips that made the moistness really perfect!

The white mocha tastes OK too.

Definitely coming back for the cake and some other drinks!

Ordered the chicken parmigiana and the french press.

The parmigiana was lackluster with very little hint of tomato. The chicken itself was just breading with a little chicken fillet. The coffee was weak even if taken black.

The only thing I liked about this place is that it's pretty to look at. Quite quiet, too. Kudos to the interior designer. 128077🏻

Oh and better come here with your gadgets fully charged. You won't get to juice 'em here since all the sockets are either covered up or way too high for convenience.

This was definitely a let down, considering the good reviews here in Looloo.

The interior of this place is on point. I love the chill homey vibe of it. As for the drink that i ordered, (which was Nutella shake btw), it was pretty good. Pero nakakaumay :-( I loved the cup though! So artsy. Overall, this place is okay naman. I have yet to try their food and other drinks!

Small servings. Coffee was weak. They serve what they call banana peanut smoothie which is actually a shake. Corned beef hash was actually julliened potatoes hash with with beef floss. A disappointment after seeing the good reviews. Nice open plan design of the dining area though.

The interiors will give you a homey feel, which is perfect for reading your favorite book over a cup of joe, or if you just want to have a catch up session with your dearest peers. This place offers all-day breakfast selections such as pancakes, sandwiches and a lot more. They also serve pasta, salpicao & their healthy chicken wrap.

Latte, Cappuccino, Americano and a lot more. Take your pick. By the way, their French Press is already good for two and oh, don't forget to taste their Nutella Frappe sans the coffee infusion, it is really good. Pastries are offered too but the choices are limited.

Music is good and it's not your usual Boyce Avenue and/or Bossa Nova "hits". Restrooms are clean and there's wifi. But take note, plugs are limited. Prices are budget friendly.

Drop by this quaint coffee place along Almond Nut Street if you wish to temporarily give a wide berth to the hustle and bustle of the city.

Ahhhh....peace and quiet....finally! Coziest coffee shop in Marikina. Comfy chairs, free wifi, coffee is good. Music was just right. No rowdy, annoying people...yet.

Nutella frappe is just okay...i forgive for not having a wide selection of dessert.
Maybe soon right?;)

Draw backs...i only saw 2 outlets so bring a fully charged gadget. And they close at 9pm on weekdays and 7pm on saturdays and close on sundays...boooo!

I would definitely come back.:)
Oh and there's a gym upstairs!! Yes!

I 10084️ Saturdate128145 hubby and I had another new food trip yesterday afternoon and wanted to relax so I ask him to go with me and check out the Ground and Brew Cafe in Almond Nut St. in Marikina .

There were only two customer when we get there and happy it was not crowded. The place interior was nice , feels like in Baguio.

I wanted to try this place because of their Nutella Frappe so I ordered it and perfect for carbonara then hubby had tuna pesto and waffle . Price starts 150 pesos per meal. Fast service but they don't have wifi .

It's a nice place to relax and have your favorite merienda with affordable budget

10084️ Try their Nutella Frappe (120php) and tell them not to infuse coffee. You'll be able to taste the Nutella better. Hehe forever favorite! 128149

My sister and brother-in-law always tries new places to dine. And then, they found Ground&Brew. Good food - DELICIOUS Frozen Caramel and Crispy Boneless Bangus, staff is friendly and the place - RELAXING. The interior is well decorated, well lit and very clean - including their Restroom which, I, think is a MAJOR plus.
