With the flurry of cafes and coffee shops in the Quezon City area, what makes Stockwell Café + Lounge special? Aside from its cozy ambiance, the people that go here adds up to what makes it exceptional. Office workers, groups of friends, as well as families, mostly frequent this community coffee spot.

Speaking of families, Stockwell is owned and managed by a family with younger Sherwin as its president. He is present quite often here, attending to the needs of customers. How’s that for personal commitment? Now officially a year old, they have some major surprises in store for all of you!

Last week, bloggers and media friends were invited to its first anniversary. Aside from a hearty buffet of create your own nachos, fish parmigiana and pasta, we had a free hand of picking whatever we wanted from their ‘old’ menu. Their team also served a stretch of new items moving forward to their second year of business.

For drinks, I think we had all they had to offer. And they were overwhelmingly plenty, in different flavors, from caffeine infused to playful ones. My runaway fave would be their winning concoction of Blended Caramel Macchiato. There was that addictive sweetness with a bold coffee taste in tow. We also had classic Choco Chip Java, Ice Blended Mocha and Ice Blended Oreo. On new ones, I also enjoyed my sips of thick Taro Smoothie and cake inspired, Red Velvet Smoothie.

For a different experience, their Stockwell Sub Zero, coffee in ice cubes, is a must have.

It was a little bit past lunchtime when we went and we were so ready to try their best sellers. We had Truffle Mushroom Linguine (Php 250), that had us with its very appetizing aroma as soon as it arrived to our table; Bulgogi Rice (Php 220), which you should consider if you are into sweet spiced up beef; Pan Seared Salmon (Php 350), for a savory fresh taste of the sea. This wasn’t flaky at all, as it was served like a slab of fine meat; Rib-eye Steak (Php 550) or Roast Pork In Peppercorn Sauce (Php 200) if you’re up for some serious tender and well-seasoned meat session.

Dessert was next and I got all four cakes they had that day. Cheesecakes in sweet and bold Hazelnut, rich Ube, classic Blueberry and Salted Caramel kept us busy for awhile. These were served with decorative side accents too that made them more appealing. Our table also caught up on their traditional take of Chocolate Cake. This was moist and all too fudgy at the same time.

If ice blended beverages are not your thing, you can have the hot cups of brewed, cappuccino or latte on customize coffee art. Booky and I had our logos made! Amazing right?

Now, in line with their milestone of celebrating a year of Stockwell, we were fortunate to get a glimpse of even more dishes. Each one came bursting out of the kitchen, our appetites suddenly wanting more.

This lineup starts with garlic and butter filled Shrimp Gambas and Beef Salpicao, both served in sizzling plates to maintain good temperature. I’d like the chance to come back to these classic plates and have them with a cup of rice or two.

Stockwell also got some Italian ready for your consumption. For mains they have Italian Chicken Confit with Tarragon Cream Sauce; and Seafood Marinara. The former is creamy chicken with a bold herb touch to it and the latter gives you a sour and spicy combination on your seafood pasta. On pizza, three kinds are up for grabs, Grilled Chicken Tomato Basil; Classic Pepperoni; and an All Meat Supreme. I love the simplicity of the dough, thin enough to highlight the savory toppings.

If you haven’t been here before now could be the time to give them a visit. They got more choices, both familiar and exciting. Stockwell Café + Lounge is located at the Ground Floor of Cocoon Boutique Hotel, 61 Scout Tobias Corner Scout Rallos Street, Laging Handa, Quezon City.

Stockwell was the first stop of our QC Coffee Crawl the other weekend. Meet-up was at 10am and thank God EDSA traffic was not bad on a Saturday morning. 10084

Stockwell's interior is a little bit more industrial which I liked a lot. A mix of bricks, wood and high ceiling. Kind of how I would design my own cafe or restaurant.

They make use of six different beans - Benguet, Matutum, Kapatagan, Guatemala, Brazil, Columbia. According to the owner, Sherwin, their supplier lets them customize their beans based on Stockwell's specifications. They also use alternative brewing methods like Cold Drip, Siphon, Aeropress (5th photo), V60, Flatbottom and Cold Brew. 6 beans with 6 methods already gives you 36 different choices for your coffee!

But let's focus on their local beans! Out of the three, I liked the Matutum most as it was a little more nutty and chocolatey compared to Benguet and Kapatagan which were a little bit more acidic and floral/berry-ish in taste.

I loved their Stockwell 50/50. (2nd photo) It's 50% Coffee and 50% Secret Ingredient. I don't know what the secret ingredient is but I think it's a different kind of milk that they use. I'm not sure. But it was good. It was almost like a mocha but a little bit creamier.

I also liked their Stockwell Subzero! (3rd and 4th photo) It had a little more kick but it's still creamy! Yum. 128069

We decided to have lunch at Stockwell and I ordered their Beef Tapa (1st photo) which I loooved! Okay, I know it might seem boring but whenever there's Tapa on the menu, there's a 90% chance that I'll order it!

I'd definitely come back (If only QC was near!) as I want to try their food, more than their coffee to be honest. And did I mention they also have a wine bar? Coffee and wine, why not? 128514

And if you're not sure what coffee to get, don't be shy to ask the baristas. They will be happy to answer all of your questions! 9749

This chocolate ganache cake saved me from having a bad night because of a crappy dinner. 4 stars only because it's not the best chocolate cake, but not bad at all. I also like that modern "3rd-wave coffee shop" vibe. Not a lot of customers so seems perfect for studying. 128077🏻

Stockwell just opened recently and I was able to visit a few days ago. It was late in the afternoon so I only tried their Spanish Chocolate over ice, which I liked. I also ordered Grilled Cheese sandwich. This one was disappointing though. Bread was tough and... nasaan ang cheese?

I'd really like to give this place 4 stars, or 5 even but the sandwich ruined it. 128547

I will be back though to try their coffee and other dishes. I really liked the vibe of this place as well as the service. Server even offered the password to their wifi even if I didn't ask for it. They have reliable internet, btw. 128187

Great place to chill, work or have some alone time. You can have wine, coffee, desserts and if you're really hungry, they have a food menu as well. The food menu is limited but they're good enough in taste and amount of serving.

For the amenities, they have power sockets, free wifi, a restroom and there's also enough parking outside and around the adjacent streets.

Another newly opened cafe in Tomas Morato, Stockwell is a welcome addition to the collection of restaurants in the area. I enjoy visiting third wave coffee shops and I was looking forward to this visit.

I love the chic hipster interior of the place-- uses lots of wood with big glass windows. I liked the overall vibe of the place. I would love to drop by in the morning to appreciate the store in a different light...

I really enjoyed their signature coffee, the Stockwell 50/50... It was espresso with milk and their secret mix of ingredients. I thought it was bright and it tasted interesting. I heard other customers (half) jokingly ask the waiters for the secret ingredient. Whatever it was, I thought it went with the coffee nicely... I would totally come back for it, though I wish nonfat and soy milk options were available...

We tried their bestsellers that consisted of chicken tenders, truffle mushroom pasta, and sandwich... I thought the chicken tenders were okay though a little dry, but my fiance was complaining about the serving size (of all the dishes). I kinda have to agree on the chicken tenders-- 6 small pieces of chicken for P195 is expensive. I thought the truffle mushroom pasta was okay... The buffalo chicken sandwich was a little bland and the bread was tough to manage as it broke apart when you bite into it. Ask them to cut it in half to make it more manageable. The food took some time to be served, but that just might be an adjustment on the part of the staff... They were on soft opening during our visit. Overall, I thought the food was okay, but not something I would crave for...

The staff were really great from the get go-- they knew the menu extensively and they were so nice and focused even if the place was packed.

I really wish we can give 0.5 stars... For the coffee, ambience, and service, four stars are deserved. In the end, I would come back to try their other caffeinated offerings or maybe even the wine...
