Of course I didn’t miss this! It’s a must when in Boracay. Tourists would take home boxes of their famous Calamansi Muffins. They also have other pastries to boot but that really is what they are known for. I only had a bite of it years ago but I never forgot to take a mental note of visiting their branch. Yes, it’s about time to have some Real Coffee & Tea Cafe.

At first, I thought that this was only a small stall. I was surprised to know that they have a 2nd floor. The space was quite open and can accommodate multiple diners. There was no need for fans as there was a slight breeze coming in. What would really catch your eye are the photos propped up everywhere. Lots of diners enjoy their time here that they send photos to this place. You can see it carefully placed on the tables, walls and that window thing near their kitchen/bar.

I had their Real Coffee and Calamansi Muffin. The former had a shot of espresso which made for one strong brew. I had to mix the milk in to balance the flavor. It went nicely with the tarty calamansi muffin. And yes, I enjoyed every bite of it. I was on the verge of buying a box but I was wary of the timing (being on a boat and all). It had a nice texture and consistency that no wonder people flock here to have a taste. Aside from their delectable pastries, I heard that their dishes (mostly breakfast ones) are good too. And that’s for another visit (and another excuse to have one of those muffins again 128539 ).

Only thought in my mind once we exited this place: can I have some more pleaassseee?

Back in '97 (yes I'm that old), when Boracay wasn't called "Bora" yet, and yes, long before the days of Laboracay, I chanced upon this place at its original location, right next to the Boracay Stables. It was a small, nondescript hut on the beachfront. Little did I know that this place would be one of my favorite haunts in the world.

Back then, there were a few tourists on the island yet this place would always be packed before 10am. And rightfully so. Their coffee is just right. No need for 3rd wave Coffee hipster nonsense. And the breakfast menu? Perfect after a night out in Hey Jude (now Epic). I remember coming in for breakfast with a sore throat to which Nadine, the owner, gladly recommended a pot of salabat and a bowl of yoghurt and fruit. That truly hit the spot.

I've been to this place quite a number of times. Seen it grow from a humble little shack along the beachfront to a bigger location tucked behind an alleyway near Station 1 to its present location, now right next to a dive shop (and rightfully at the beachfront again). Now with an amazing view at the 2nd floor, I can't help but smile at its success. 128522

I always order the Jack's Omelette with pesto and wash it down with brewed coffee or Real Coffee. And of course, I make sure to get one of them calamansi muffins! A trip to Boracay wouldn't be complete without paying this place a visit.

Real Coffee was, is and always be my happy place in my happy place, Boracay. Glad to have visited again after four long years! 9749

We're so intrigued with good reviews of Real Coffee l. Since we are in Boracay, we won't miss our chance. It is located at Station 2 few walks from Aria.

The place has the beach feels, lots of pictures in the wall amd menu signage all over. This place is famous for their Calamansi Muffin, I already get to taste it and its good. So my 2 friends are excited to try it.

We decided to dine in. We ordered their Iced Real Coffee. Its one of their best seller as recommended by the staff.
And we shared 2 muffins: calamansi and banana.

11088️The Iced Real Coffee (P120), for me its ok. Quite strong. And its a pleasant relief from the heat.

11088️Banana Muffin(P65) love the nuts in it! Perfect combi with coffee
11088️Calamans(P65)- taste like calamansi. Something you can have whenever you visit the place. For me its good!

Verdict: muffins tastes good, but I find it a bit pricey. Coffee is just okay. For me nothing spectacular. I'm giving 3 stars, for poor service. Staffs are quite rude. Something that disappointed me, that I didn't bought the box of muffins that I was suppose to buy.

We actually went here for the fresh ginger tea (PhP180/pot)! It's manual so you have to wait a bit. But it was worth the wait, the ginger tea was very calming.

Well, I had to grab pics from my brother's. Hehe! Since when we tried the Calamansi Muffin my phone was drained. No chance to check the 2F. Prices are a bit stiff for me tho, so we did not dine in here as a group. We just ordered "one" to try.

Small sized muffin pero siksik, cute-looking-pero-bakit-P65-ka-kamahal? Charr! Ok lang sya for me. Pag libre I could eat three, pag hindi di nako oorder hehe! Maglolomi na lang ako sa kabilang resto sa 928 for P65 good for 2. Hehehehe 128513

One of my favorite places in Boracay. I always spend time here in the afternoon with a glass of iced coffee and some cookies. My recent visit to Boracay was with my best friend as we celebrated his birthday. He did not know about Real Coffee so I took him there on a Friday afternoon.

We settled at the second floor and as usual, the view was just stunning. You get to enjoy the beauty of Boracay's pristine beach and at the same time enjoy looking at the frantic vacationers going here and there.

I did not order coffee this time but Funky Monkey. It's a chocolate drink with bananas and it was good. It wasn't too sweet and not too sharp and bitter. It was perfect with the peanut butter cookies I ordered. My buddy got their Iced Cafe Mocha which was a blend of coffee, milk and chocolate shake. We both didn't like how it tasted haha! It was too bland. The ice cubes have not melted yet but it already tasted like water. We did not send it back but we ordered another glass of Funky Monkey.

The place was really relaxing. Even though the Iced Cafe Mocha tasted bad, I would still go back to this place. Restaurants have their own wins and misses (defensive), at least I know what to skip. 128514

Best all day breakfast cafe in Boracay Station 2! This place should not be missed when you visit Boracay. Kalamansi Muffin (60 pesos per piece/320 pesos for box of 6) is a must try and best for pasalubong. We had our brunch here before leaving Boracay. We ordered:
127859 Jack-A-Lean Omellete with Pesto (best omellete ever!)
127821 Pancake with Fruits (Super huge pancake (same taste with Ihop's) serving and fresh fruits)
127838 Marc's Chicken Melt k(I could eat this everyday)
$$$ Price is reasonable because of the big servings.
🏖 Very beautiful place and the view facing the white beach.
Overall experience is amazing.

It's our last day in the Island of Boracay, we tried Real Coffee located at the Station 2. It's one of the pioneer coffee shop in the island. I am amazed with the bamboo interior of the coffee shop. Looking from the second floor I can see the beautiful white beach of Boracay. The staff greeted us when we enter the place and accommodated our order fast.

We had Real Coffee and Calamansi Muffin while watching some visitors playing at the beach and of course the beauty of the island.

Real Coffee for Php120.00 - 11088110881108811088️ 4/5
"Brewed Italian coffee with a shot of espresso"

Calamansi Muffin for Php60.00 - 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5
"The best calamansi muffin I've ever tasted"

Come and visit Real Coffee once you're in the island from 7am to 7pm daily.

The Real Coffee (PhP 120) jumpstarts my chill vacation with calamansi muffin (PhP 60) on the side. I always come and visit this place whenever I am in Boracay.

This placeis famous for its Kalamasi Muffin which is really good especially paired with coffee in the morning. They offer more such as breakfast meals. You can enjoy watching the beach view while waiting for our order. The servers are really welcoming greeting us genuinely when we entered the place and thanking us when we went out. 12807710084

To those who enjoyed Laboracay, thanks for rubbing it in! I'M SO JELLY!128553128557 But seriously, I really appreciate pasalubongs like these because it takes so much effort to bring them back to Manila and to make sure that they are a-okay! I feel so special, hahaha! #pampalubagloob

Anyways, this batch is better than the first time I tried it. The muffins are denser and the calamansi flavor is richer and more pronounced. I make sure to warm them at least 10s in the microwave before consuming. Yuuum!128523

Dropped by this famous café to grab some of those moist Calamansi muffins before hitting the beach! Perfect for an afternoon snack. Best when paired with a hot beverage!

Breakfast is, and will always be, a person's comfort meal. Coming from a long sleep and before starting a busy day, it's needed to make you feel more confident and happier with what you have to face for the day.

In a beautiful island like Boracay, waking up early is not that hard as you'll be facing a pretty scenery that's actually one of the best day starters. What could even make it lovelier is a happy breakfast place where you can eat your heart out while staring at paradise.

This place that I am talking about actually exists in Boracay. Found in between stations 2 and 3, Real Coffee is definitely one of my, and a lot of people's favorite and must visit restaurant in daylight, even not.

With its very local, beach setting look; the structure of the restaurant is made of bamboo, the tables and chairs were made of those too. To give it more character, the place has colorful photos from the 1st floor to the 2nd floor, mostly featuring people who've frequented the place.

Whenever I am here, I always, always find it hard to decide on what to order from their vast breakfast selection. From pancakes, toasts, sandwiches, breads and omelettes, aaah, you wanna order them all!

Finally, after a lot of time used in discerning, I've decided to go with their Two Eggs And Toasts set meal at 180 pesos. This one already came along with either a free serving of coffee or tea.

My order came and I was so happy with how it looked like. Fresh, colorful and appealing, I got it all right!

The toasts were crunchy and tasted as if they've been baked for the day. I liked the cheese tasting spread that it has. What made it even yummier were the Mango Marmalade and Honey Syrup that I poured on them. Aaah! The marmalade was so so good that I wanted to bring it home!

The eggs tasted like they were native so they're even more delicious than the usual ones.

The coffee was really strong my oh my! I had to ask for extra sugar as I am not that into extra bitter ones. It came with fresh milk that's something that I also liked about it.

Oh, after eating, I felt so fulfilled. A hearty breakfast in a pretty place, oh I could not ask for anything more!

Really made sure to drop by here during our Boracay trip. As there were no free breakfasts from C.R.B, I asked the fambam if we can have breakky here. Ofcourse, they said yes. We ordered their pancake, chicken/tuna sandwich and the famous calamansi muffin.
The breakfast we had was filling. The calamansi muffin was delicious. Soft, moist with tang-y taste. The calamansi taste was just right. Not nakakaumay at all. The place is made of kawayan. I like that they put some cutie reminders/quotes on the tables and walls. There were also photos of diff people who visited the place on top of their table covered with plastic bookcover.
Definitely coming back to Bora for this muffin. Hoping they will have a branch in Manila. Hehe

Some of the quotes/reminders I took note of:
127754Dont look back and ask why, Look forward and ask why not?!
127754Smile, the world smiles with you.
127754We don't have a wifi here, but we do offer a better connection.

Already saw several reviews with the photo of the calamansi muffin. Maybe the above photo will also convince you to try this place.
Photo above 9757 was our view while having breakfast. 128077 Definitely no filter needed. 128156

Another must drop by place in Boracay. The ever famous Calamansi muffin of Mama Lee serving since 1996. This is the official pasalubong from boracay. Went there very early to have a good cup of coffee and muffin. They have now relocated to a better new location. A small bar type on the 1st floor similar from their old location but on the 2nd floor is a much bigger for guest. Table is now designed with random picture from their guest and some other celebrity. It reminds me of Cafe Mary Grace. I ordered a cup of real coffee mocha and a calamansi muffin. The Real Coffee mocha was good! Was quite a bit strong but I like it that way. The star of the show calamansi muffin. It has a little hint of calamansi sourness but it was so good! The muffin was also pack tight unlike other muffin that are just full of air. I also bought a box of six for pasalubong at 320php. My officemate love it and was asking for more when they've tasted it.

Overall it was great new location and much more cleaner looking compare to before. The place now got that homey feel but with the same great menu and muffin!

It has been a while since I was in Bora that I didn't know they moved location 128514 we walked from Station 1 all the way to Station 2 and was about to give up when finally, we stumbled upon the "new" resto. The omellette with tuna, tomatoes and onions today were just okay. But still loved their toast with marmalade. Will still come back next time for sure 128076🏼
