Go home by bus at 7PM from Makati or wait until 10PM so you can go home by car? I was willing to take the bus, but someone asked, "Coffee at UCC Mentoré?"

Okay, 10PM it is. 128514

KORI KOHI ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

I love this! The concept is just too cool! Cold brew Sumiyaki coffee frozen into little ice cubes served with milk and syrup. 128525 The concept of iced coffee taken oh-so literally!

But damn, this coffee is strong. UCC's Sumiyaki is quite strong and it can keep you awake for quite a while. 128514

Love the ambiance of the place, very relaxing. I can spend long hours just sitting here and maybe keep up with my journaling. 128221

Ok the coffee rocks, and that's the siphon house blend coffee which although quite pricey, still tickles my tastebuds every time. However the serving time takes FOREVER. I've been here numerous times already and nothing has ever changed. Sucks.

My team went to have a nice breakfast yesterday. We ordered 7:15am and we were literally the first customers there. I had a meeting at 8 so I kind of expected I'd still have 30 minutes to eat. To my dismay, my food wasn't served at 7:55, so I decided to have it wrapped. Left hungry and grumpy. 128534128547

I have been longing to try this place! It was a good thing a had time one night. I heard mentore offers coffee with booze. If you are going here via car, it would be advisable to park at car park link. The mall parking would be a little too far, the hotel parking is too costly naman.

It was already 11:30pm it was great to see a lot of people hanging out in this place. I went yo check/use the CR first i thought the ground floor CR is only for females, the reason i went to the second floor where there were a lot more people. There's no CR at the second floor the signage of the CR downstairs was just confusing.

I was then standing a while deciding to sit at the bar or somewhere else, but neither the servers nor the supervisor assisted or accommodated me. I looked at them but still they thought i just came to
Use the CR. I grabbed the menu and hurriedly say at the Bar's high chair. It really took a while until one of the barista noticed that i intend to buy. The wild kori kohi was not available under their coffeeholics section so i tried

128204128525 the mexican @350PhP
This is composed of espresso, patron XO, baileys, butterscotch, half and half milk, chocolate and cinnamon. Generally i loved the drink. The baileys and butterscotch were the main taste. Espresso only comes in after them for a short while. I am not fond of whole chocolates, but this one pretty tastes good with the drink. The cinnamon is weaker here.
Whew i thought it's going to be a little dizzy but amazingly, not at all!! Haha!

128204 molten dulce de leche @260PhP
This is nice, sweet tasting, it tasted moist chocolate with caramel sauce on top. Recommended pweds din, this is their best seller daw, but i cant have this everyday or every other day.

The service sucked finely. I asked for bill out immediately but still my wish was not granted. This is one example of dislikable place due to slow service however because of the unique and good food (or drinks in this case), i am still liking it.

Dined here with friends and these are the things I ordered:
✅ Truffled Mac and Cheese - really REALLY savory, tastes great but has umay factor
✅ Single Origin Brazil No. 2 in Pour Over - really good coffeee with nutty taste
✅ Huey's Road Mocktail - mint, ginger, lime, apple, and cinnamon perfection

The servers are SUPER nice! 128154

Mentore by UCC. Now, this a is a gem right beside Fairmont in Makati. It's a unique japanese like cafe with western offerings. I only had caramel frap for a hot afternoon, and it's a must to try. It's not too sweet, the whip creme isn't too heavy and the serving is right. The place has a good vibes; very cozy and chill with only a few people during day time. I haven't tried their menu extensively yet, but for a coffee hangout, this a great place to go and have a sip of your favorite cup.

Went here with a friend because we read that you can get iced coffee for 15php with any purchase of food. I ordered the Truffle Mac and Cheese and oh my GOD I did not regret paying 380php for it. The cheese they used was so good. It was actual cheese too and not some weird cheese sauce. They probably grated more cheese on top and then baked it, too. The thing was that it took a while but it was worth it. Also, their iced coffee? The best coffee I've had ever. I'm not even kidding. You can taste the roast? Heaven. I've had my fair share of coffee everywhere but damn that one was amazing.

Breakfast meeting place....

I like this UCC as it's a discreet place to meet with somebody who wants a low profile business transaction.

While waiting,i ordered UCC houseblend and this bfast medley..

Food was good, loved the sausages and angus tapa.

Price is on the high side though.

Service was good.

AC quite cold but good for me :)

Love the venue of this coffee shop--situated beside Fairmont/ Raffles Hotel in Makati, it's far from the crowded, hustle and bustle of the malls in the area. Went here after dinner and there weren't much people, so my companions and I got to sit in a really super comfy couch.

Ordered hot cafe latte and a salted caramel chiffon cake--both were ok. I've had better, but good enough.

Service was good as well. Servers were warm and all smiles, even though it was already late at night.

What I didn't like much was the manager. She seems so aloof. There was also a time she adjusted the AC for whatever reason when the temp was just fine. So the place it became a tad too cold. There was also one time she was talking with one of the servers and she just removed her shoe with her hand and showed it to the server. The heck? I sure hope she didn't prepare any of the food or drinks there 128561

Lastly--comfort room was clean, but didn't smell so.

Will still return here though--not because of the coffee or food, but because there are only a few places in the area that offers a quiet ambiance, where one can have a restful evening out with friends.

Great service, place and delicious food! (No picture of salmon and cheese sandwich but it was good! Orange cappuccino was lovely, the same with blueberry cheesecake!)

I love their sumiyaki coffee! I match it with syphoned house brew. Ucc coffee has a very light taste, usually smooth at the back of the tongue, but is robust. You know its quality coffee when it doesnt feel like overwhelming you with roasted and bitter aftertaste. Its now my new fave tambayan. Mentoré is the higher end take of the UCC brand, to compete with starbucks' Reserve. This branch in particular near raffles is perfect because of its location and building design. See you there!

I love this place for conversations because it is outside the mall and the classy feel of the place. They have a broad range of coffee and beverages and the staffs know what to recommend. I have been streaking on the different cappuccino blends lately (rose hip, orange, etc). The food though is expensive but you can settle for their cakes and pastries if you want to stick to the "average coffee shop price".

Happy to have decided to try this cafe bar. Great ambience and view of the park gardens. Their bts cake is easily their best dessert and should keep customers coming back. The dulce de leche layered chocolate cake was so delicious we ordered another one. The apple crumble was also good while the green clare (think waffle crepe with green tea ice cream) was good but nothing special.

On the drinks side we got their coffeeholics (liquor+coffee), particularly the naughty nikki and millionaire's. I'm just not a coffee guy but my companions loved 'em.

It's a tad pricey but I think mentore justifies it quite well. Definitely worth checking out. :)

The wifey is doing her late minute Xmas shopping and i didnt wanna spoil my day waiting for her as the designated driver.

I opted to park at Terraces Square and exited at Mentore cafe.

Place is at the center of Raffles,Landmark and G3 and is and ideal hangout for an outside the mall coffee shop.

Already had some sandwich at home but decided to get to try their dishes.

Ordered Ice Latte and chicken Adobo , around P580 for the meal.

Food was so so, service was good...definitely you are paying for the ambiance and your solitude.

Acoustics is quite bad as you can overhear people conversation and pls turn off th A/C...it's freakin freEzing !!!

UCC has a new 'coffee bar' just in front of Raffles Makati.

I had the Salmon and Cheese Sandwich and it was just okay. I usually prefer smoked salmon sandwiches. I adore cheese but I could barely taste the salmon in this one. Also don't think they have wheat bread. I should have asked.

I wish they didn't force the whole 'coffee bar' thing, It's just annoying because they play club music and it doesn't suit the food and ambience! You can still call it a coffee bar and not have annoying poorly chosen trance music right? I love club music but it just doesn't work with this particular restaurant.

Sorry UCC.
