When my dad was admitted at The Medical City on the day of my final exams, I had no choice but to look for coffee shops around the area to do my studying.

I'm not a fan of reviewing at coffee shops because I can't really concentrate when there's music. But if you like that, this branch is a good choice. There are not so many people at that hour, 9-12mn, so you can focus on your notes and your drink.

I ordered a small vanilla latte and a blueberry cheesecake. The coffee is too sweet for my liking but it is okay. I love the cheesecake tho. I always order their blueberry cheesecake 10084

Ps. AC is too cold. Seems like it will snow any minute that time. 128553
Pps. Their staff are really courteous and they greet everyone cheerfully. 128149

"A laugh is a smile that bursts" Thank you #cbtlph for adding a personal touch to my drink. Love the rich flavour of their white choco mocha 128077128525

Wasn't really gonna write a review, but the staff here deserve at least a shoutout! Excellent service and unbelievably courteous! Two thumbs up!

I must say I liked it (Tomato and Herb linguine) more than Chicken Mushroom Fusilli. But nothing special about the taste. Just your regular pasta.

I had to work today and I knew that all the restaurants and coffee shops near the office will be closed. I was glad when I saw CBTL's lights were on even at 5:30 in the morning. :))

I ordered their new drink--Hazelnut Truffle. I had it Ice Blended even if it's only 7:30am. Also got their Ube Cheesecake.

Both were underwhelming for me. I couldn't really taste the hazelnut in my drink, but there are some hints of it.

The cheesecake.. didn't really work for me either. It was okay, but it can do away with the desiccated coconut on top. It's not something I'm gonna crave for.

Not a fan of their coffee but their desserts are really good. Try their lemon bar and you will surely love it. They've perfected the right amount of sweetness and zestiness in their bars. A little steep for that small piece but it's definitely worth it.

A perfect pangtangal umay or dessert option IMO.

Ps: this is my 2nd favorite lemon bar right after Purple Oven

Nice branch to chill in or study. I had a Hot Double Chocolate with marshmallows. I originally wanted the Red Velvet Hot Cocoa but they ran out huhu that's what I came for pa naman. I wasn't too disappointed naman because what I had made up for it. 128077

So for today's breakfast, my officemate wanted to go to Coffee Bean, and I had a hard time choosing what food to get.

I wanted Eggs Ben sana, but I had a bad experience with their eggs ben. My favorite pasta is their Sardine and Garlic Linguine, but felt like it's too heavy for the morning.

I went for their Chilled Spicy Chicken Pasta Salad. I don't remember the correct order of words 128514

The salad was okay, but it lacked contrast in flavors. It has the CBTL favorite sticker in their menu, but it certainly did not make it to my favorites 128533

Plus my cup didn't have a message. Boo hoo 128514

Let's be honest... The 2015 Starbucks planner sucks, IMO... Looks like the Starbucks apron and looks like the non-black colors will get dirty easily... So though I love their holiday drinks, I'm not really planning on using their planners...

On the other hand, I love the look of the CBTL planners... I'm eyeing the purple one!128077 the reason that I didn't want to collect CBTL planner stickers was due to the previous "requirements"... They wanted you to purchase specific drinks, limiting some of your choices... But it's not that stringent now... They made the requirements broader and more generalized to accommodate the personal preference of the customer...

Today was my first time to try their holiday beverages, in the form of the iced Winter Dream Tea Latte... It tasted a lot like Chai!128513 a sort-of cinnamon taste, for the cinnamon lovers out there... A change from the usual Peppermint and Toffee Nut beverage we see so often in our looloo feeds these days (mine is filled with these reviews!)...

To be honest, I prefer CBTL to Starbucks in the Rockwell center... That's my only reason for hanging out here this morning!9728

Slowly becoming our hideout when we get too stressed in the office 128514

Matcha latte is a staple, with soy milk of course.

Tried their cranberry and almond biscotti too. I think it's sulit at 55 pesos. But can someone enlighten me about its texture? I've been watching Giada on TV and it's supposed to be thinner and should have a crunch to it since it's twice-baked. This was a bit doughy. 128560

The ultimate ice blended coffee is so strong! Right pick if you'll be extending your hours for work.

Place is nice.

Been hanging around here since our school and hospital is just next door. I often have Brek O' Day and I didn't really appreciate this place until yesterday. I started having labor pains and had to see my OB but I had to wait for her clinic hours. I passed time at CBTL and had their Guiltless Chocolate Delight and tea of the day, Sparkling Lemon. And it eased my labor pains. It's that good, the contractions stopped.

Yeah, a nice place. Lol. Last time i was here, there was this bespectacled artificial redhead wearing a knee length floral dress and was rocking a backpack. Wow. Talk about a real life Ruby Sparks, Ramona Flowers, or Clem.

After trying out their competitor's holiday drinks, i decided to try CBTL's own holiday drink--the red velvet ice blended drink.

If you're expecting it to be taste something like those red velvet cupcakes that you like, sorry, you'll be quite disappointed. It's sweet and it's actually not bad, but for me it's nothing special.

Went to CBTL after Peanut mentioned the Chicago cheesecake in her review. Since i hadn't eaten breakfast and was starving, i ordered their Eggs Ben. It came with a free hot tea (or coffee) and the barista recommended African sunrise. I've tried the African sunrise tea latte and it was good, but this tea version (with the tea bag) was good and aromatic as well. Their eggs ben was amazing. I mean, all eggs benedict are supposed to be amazing, i hadn't had one for quite some time, and i wasn't disappointed with this one. Way to start the day. Now, on to that Chicago cheesecake......
