If a customer arrives ten minutes before opening time and your doors are already open, the polite thing to do is let that person wait inside instead of asking him to leave and come back.

UCC a block away was gracious enough to let me order ahead already.

Ordered break o day for breakfast. It's good but I like their eggs ben better. 128516

It's a good alternative for eggs ben and it's filling. Good food to start your day. It's kinda expensive though for. But it comes with coffee or tea so I think it's fine. 128522

I'm not sure if this is a coincidence that we always hang out here whenever we want to chat and eat. Nevertheless though, i can say i love this place!

Not crowded at all, has a big space and they have friendly staff as well.

So this was Christmas day, where my friends who call our friendship the PCD decided to meet and hang out. We are actually going to watch a movie as well but unfortunately the movie we want was already sold out. So we just decided to chit chat and stay here.

Actually we stayed like for good 3-4hrs, includes the waiting the the actually catching up. 128516

We ordered Blueberry Cheesecake (my personal fave here, honestly this is the best among cakes I've tasted 128525), Nono Chocolate Oblivion (tasty as well128077🏻), Hazelnut for my friend and of course Chai Tea Latter large for me. 9786

Experience here overall are always 5 star. Love everything from the place, ambiance and the staff. Nothing but good words for this place. 128077🏻128522

Triple decker cheesecake. My favorite cake in Coffee Bean. It's the best out of all the cakes Coffee Bean offers that I've tried. 128522

It's not too sweet and I like the consistency. I would recommend it to people who don't like their desserts super sweet.

Best with coffee too. Any coffee. Or tea if you prefer that. 128516

It's also good to match with their meals like their pastas and breakfast meals.

A Cafè wherein you can dine, read a book peacefully or to kill time during rush hour madness.

Matcha Green Tea and Spicy Tuna Linguine is a perfect combination accdg to Ms Barista. Since I'm famished already after panic buying (this is what I called everytime na sale 128513128514) And out of curiosity, I ordered it.

Matcha Green Tea- i don't know if my tastebuds has a problem but at first sip...hmm same with the Green Tea Frapp in Starbucks. Second and third sip...same nga 128514 Sa whipped cream lang nagkaiba. Mas konti si CBTL 128517128513 -11088️ for the whipped cream

Spicy Tuna Linguine- good serving. Not too spicy. Worth it for 195php.

Place: not crowded, love the interior and lights. 128079🏼

Staffs- friendly and bubbly 128512

Will go back here to try their cakes naman 128513

Meet up with my friend and thought of ordering light snacks since it was almost lunch na. Since my friend was taking so long, I ordered banana walnut bread and iced blended mocha.
Nothing really special with the banana bread except from the sugar coated on top of the bread.
Liked the place since it wasn't crowded that time.

Sardine pasta 5/5
Eggs Benedict 4/5 (yummy but egg was overcooked)
Chicken Caesar salad sandwich 1/5 (chicken was at least a day old!)
Ube cheesecake 3/5 (could barely taste the ube. Tasted like ordinary cheesecake)

Tried to buy a blended drink, but the staff told me they don't have whipped cream. And a blended drink without whipped cream is like a band without its drummer. So I went for a macchiato(single-shot espresso) and their chocolate chip cookie that I really like! A good combo to balance the sweetness brought my the cookie and the bitterness of the coffee. Friends tried it too and said, "Ampalaya x 10". It's just they are not fan of this band called "coffee" 9786️ But they also fell in love with the cookie. (can't wait for them to try the triple decker, sure they'll forgot the world hahahaha 128514)
service is good but the aircon is not so good. music is too loud.

This is the place where you can just hang out and relax. You can do people watching without seeming weird -- in fact, this place can be anything you want to be -- an escape, a stress buster, or home. Or a place to hide from your work 128513

This branch is almost always crowded during weekends so am glad we were able to grab seats without hassle, this time.

Claimed my planner, was ok. Wanted to try a different drink apart from my usual ice blended drink--had iced vanilla tea latte something, was ok.

The barista (Eileen/Aileen) was friendly so plus points for that.

I couldn't barely taste the blueberry in the bagel but I still enjoyed it. The bread was heated just right - crust is crisp while the bread inside remained chewy. Minus points for not providing utensils and a napkin for my take-away. How am I supposed to spread my cream cheese?

Robert Langdon and his friends accompanying me while I drink CBTL's "new" White Chocolate Macchiato.

I think that's the perfect combo during a cold and rainy (but not really) day. Something warm to fill your tummy and a good book.

On to the reviewwww

I don't really taste a difference between this and their hot latte. Sorry coffee bean much as I love you but this one's kind of a flop for me 128532 It didn't really taste anything close to a white chocolate drink. Also, it was too sweet for my taste.

But, I guess caffeine is caffeine no matter how you take it or maybe that's just the coffee addict in me talking you know all's good once caffeine has been injected in the system 128514128514128514

While studying for my upcoming endeavor hihi I ordered the Morocco Mint Tea. I wanted the green tea but there's none. 128532 buti na lang my order did not disappoint. 128515 The mint was obviously there and I really like it on my taste buds! 127861127862128077

The line was short but the cashier was so slow. 128530

I've always loved CBTL's Lemon Square, and whenever I'm craving for dessert that's not all too sweet, this never fails to satisfy me.

I'm having one now as I type this review. As expected, my sweet (citrusy?) tooth is happy.

I'm pairing it with fresh orange juice because for some reason, I'm craving for some more citrusy explosion in my afternoon snack haha. I asked for more ice for this because there was none in my cup. I think the barista forgot? It's no biggie for me, though.

Would've given this four stars but...

I think for a place this big, this branch is undermanned right now. I see only three baristas over the counter, and the tables are left uncleaned unless you ask the staff to clear them out.

It's also a little hot here. I barely feel the AC above my head.

This, to me, is the best cheesecake ever. The Triple Decker Cheesecake. 5 stars for this and the good coffee.

Minus 1 for the barista who was about to give me Americano when I ordered for brewed coffee. Good thing I saw it and she said, "ah yung house blend po ba yung gusto nyo?".

I had a Chai Latte with the no sugar option. And gooosh, it was so windy last night that I needed a hot drink to warm me a little bit. But I think their water was not in the right temperature.

It was TOO HOT. I mean it was way too HOT.

Upon my first sip, my tongue got burned and I tell you, it's not a pleasant experience, haha. It only takes a second to burn your tongue, okay?

I sipped ice water and waited for around 10 minutes to let it cool off, but it didn't help. Oh well. This morning, I just ate some frozen grapes to soothe the minor burn. However, it doesn't really bother me that much, it's just a slight discomfort.

No photo. 128565

Random Thought: TO ALL IPHONE USERS: is it just me or does it seem that after you have updated your phone to IOS7, the charging time is much longer? 128529128529128529128529128529128529128529128529128529128529
