I love this coffee shop! IMO better than other more popular coffee shops. Coffee is good as well as the food! Space is wide and there's lots of tables.

We ordered the special Alex latte - a little stronger than what I'm used to in lattes but good. Would definitely order this one again.

Carrot cake - better than other carrot cakes I've tried! 2nd best to my favorite carrot cake which we've had in Bali.

Tomato garlic and basil - simple but good! The tanginess of the tomato sauce is perfect. The toast isn't just a sidepiece, it's very tasty on its own.

Pat bingsu - bingsu with red beans. My bf wasn't very keen on this one but to me it's okay. It's not as sweet or strong tasting as other bingsu which for me is just right.

For 2 people we spent abt P700. Not bad. Will be back here definitely. :)

I must say this is one of the underrated places the boo and I frequently hang out in BF. Most people would troop to more known coffee shops but the boo and I gravitate to this Korean coffee shop right in Aguirre's dead center.

The boo loves the drip coffee here, and he would try a different one everytime we visit. I like how the owner himself does the drip coffee, carefully weighs the coffe grounds, patiently waits and times the drip, and serves the coffee with a polite bow, and an acknowledgement of your name (which is correctly spelled btw).

A new favorite of mine would definitely be the Alex Coffee's Cafe Nuts! It combines the distinct nutty goodness of almonds and good old Arabica coffee... It even has crushed almonds that makes the whole coffee experience even more delightful! Enjoy it hot or iced, but I highly suggest trying it hot to better appreciate the nutty flavor.

If ever you get to be in BF, steer clear of your usual coffee run and head to The Alex Coffee. You wouldn't miss their big yellow and black sign, and the strong smell of good coffee. They serve pastries and hot meals too!

Been curious about this place for a while because #1, it's HUGE! I mean, for bf standards, it really occupies a lot of real estate! #2, signage and bright lights were really inviting and attractive. Finally one Sunday the parking wasn't too packed and we were able to try it out.
Love how they used the space inside, it can easily accommodate 20 or more people but you're not so tightly packed. Tried their iced mocha for ₱160 (I think). A bit pricey for the size but ok lang. The taste was quite strong but I didn't like how the chocolate taste kinda overpowered the coffee.
Bathroom was also big, nice and clean. I think it'd be a good place to work because they do have a lot of power outlets. Weird lang that day the music choice was Umm, metal? Tapos naging parang edm na luma 128517 pls make a nicer Playlist to go with your nice coffee shop 128522

Legit coffee! They also roast their beans in-house so you are sure the ones they use are always fresh. Try the brownies and the drip coffee over ice and pick Ethiopia and Kono as the dripper. Refreshing, bright, and balanced.
