English Breakfast Tea after a full meal at Hawker. First time to visit this branch. Spacious and has good ventilation. The only downside is that they have low ceilings hence it can get a lil noisy especially when the group adjacent your table isn't familiar with the word noise.

The tea is good. Biased opinion as i like Black Tea in general. What's iffy is that they charge extra for honey, php 50 extra. I miss Starbucks all of a sudden.

This has to be my favorite place to chill after a long day at work. Located at a cozy nook in Makati, its relatively quiet during office hours and lunch time and provides an inspiring, green view of Legazpi village if you’re in a mood for a private chat. The baristas are always friendly but not overbearing, with an atmosphere likened to a familiar hole-in-a-wall/ hipster coffee shop. I wouldn’t recommend it if you want to study or work as they only have 2 outlets located beside the sofa, with low tables that are not laptop friendly. Best if you just want to work for an hour, relax for a bit while waiting for the traffic to abate or have a private chat.

Its been a long time since I was back in Makati. As always, I went to this specific branch, my favorite CBTL— thinking about it, it has to be my favorite "coffee" shop in Manila. But, I would recommend their tea selection instead of its coffee. For that hot afternoon, I tried their latest addition to their menu, Pear Berry Granita Tea Ice Blended. It was good but not as satisfying as their other tea lattes. I felt that because of the base, the ice felt separate from the sweet concoction – it didn’t have a cohesive texture. But I’m just nitpicking here. :)

Missed this place! Though it was only for a quick coffee run, I still very much miss this. Just had their Mocha Latte which gave me enough caffeine rush I needed for the night 1285649749128564

Went here because my friend and I needed internet for our planning session but the internet was very slow and pages won't load. My mobile phone's internet was faster. Might be because the place was full and a lot were connecting when we visited wednesday after work.

Ordered a double choco ice blended, no whip and tuna pandesal for dine in. Service was ok. The cashier was lively and the waiter helped me when he saw that i needed water and when i was cleaning up the table.

Ordered a tuna pandesal and ice blended mocha no whip non-fat. The tuna pandesal was delicious, the tuna is placed/divided into the 3 portions of the pandesal. For the ice blended, you can't request modification of the coffee as it is already pre-set/ pre-mixed.

Ordered my favorite original ice blended mocha drink in regular size, no whip and non fat milk (by default they use non fat milk). What i like abt cbtl's ice blended drink is that it is blended properly and the taste is spread accross the whole drink evenly. The ice is blended smoothly and perfectly. In addition, i ordered a tuna pandesal. All for to go.

Not so many people in line during my visit. After paying and getting the christmas stamps, my drink and pandesal was already ready for pickup.

Missed this! It's been awhile since I got a sip of their Ice Blended drinks. I was supposed to get their White Chocolate Dream but sadly, it was unavailable last night. Got the Mocha version instead as I needed some caffeine on me. Still a good refreshing drink! Nice to cool one's day off 128522

After dinner at Tempura Japanese Grill, we went for a walk because we didn't want to go home yet. We have crossed the street going to People Support now Teleperformance, when he realized he wanted to bring something for his mom. We checked out SB but didn't like anything so we went back to Convergy's and checked out Coffee Bean.

He got her banana caramel loaf while I bought mocha latte. The coffee was so-so and just warm. The place was cute -- the first branch I've been to that is cozy.

We stayed at the place for two hours. We hardly talked because he was sketching. He drew. I people-watched.

At past 12mn, we went home. Chinese New Year!! 127881

I really love the cakes here. But for some reason, I didn't like this. It deserves a check for all the chocolate but it wasn't fudgy. When I slice it, the cake just breaks down. I was expecting it to be a bit moist, and that I could eat what I sliced. But I had it in bits. Overrefrigerated maybe? 128532

Saw the planner of coffee bean and tealeaf and I would say their planner has more classiness to it. I tried their red velvet ice blended. It was great just make sure to lessen the sweetness. As usual I also go for their spicy tuna pasta which is really a fave of mine. Love this branch because of the friendly staff. The drinks in the menu aren't all available due to port congestion as per the barista. Reminds me of #chickenSad. Anyway the drinks in coffee bean are all great for me next time I'll try the winter tea looks interesting.

Tried their Salmon & Cream Cheese Bagel paired with their Holiday drink, Winter Dream Tea today. 128513

For the Salmon & Cream Cheese, I think they put too much chopped onion with it and it kinda irritated my tongue BUT I did like the Salmon & Cream Cheese combo. I LOVE EVERYTHING with cream cheese so I'm giving this dish 11088110881108811088️!

For the Winter Dream Tea, I wish I could have ordered it in latte. Haha! I think it would've tasted better if I did. 128513

Oh and my aunt tried their Ube Cheesecake and it was good!! I'm not a fan of cheesecakes but this one's worth trying. 128522 I'm giving the cheesecake 110881108811088️! Hehe. It needs more coconut shavings on top. 128513128513
