I always visit this branch whenever we go on movie dates bec. Its open til 12am i think.

It's my first time to try the warm chocolate cake. I love how it is not too sweet and moist enough to compliment my drink. I was going for a matcha green tea ice blended but there's no whipped cream (which usually not available or it's mostly unavailable when i visit or it's late already) so i went for white chocolate dream latte. A good choice coz it goes smoothly with the cake.

Read a study before comparing CBTL with another famous coffee chain. It stated that CBTL targets another market focusing on a quieter set-up for people who would want a calmer background. Check out how they noisy their grinders and blenders are, they make less noise than other chains. So that's one of their competitive advantages i guess.

With that being said, wasn't really happy with my experience here yesterday. The placed was cramped and people were quite noisy. Okay, so not really the chain's fault BUT i did not appreciate the staff playing background music which was a bit too loud for people studying and working. Okay, i could have approached their staff to lower the volume but i wasn't really in the mood. (Although i believe that if i asked them to lower the volume, they would - tamad lang, my bad haha)

Still gave them 3 stars because as usual their chai tea latte was awesome :) but i do hope they do something about their layout. Not sure what they can do to make this place more conducive for studying/working again. Unless if that's not aligned to their strategy anymore. :)

Take care everyone! :)

This place needs a renovation already. It's always filled with people either studying or chatting with friends. Not really a good place if you're into having a quiet time for yourself. We got the Ice Blended Caramel and it was just okay. Too sweet for my liking.

WiFi was fast btw. Did not like that they only opened one cashier though. 128563

Ube cheesecake has the ube flavor but i think it is too spongy. Lacks the "compactness" of a thick cheesecake-consistency :-)

Always the best place to be with people that matter to us the most :)

This our favorite branch because after a long day at work or watching a movie or whenever we brainstorm/debate/decide/discuss our coffee shop plans, we can just sit back and share an ice blended mocha and a slice of our favorite blueberry cheesecake :)

We have so many memories here and we'll continue making more ;)

Trying to look for a healthy food before diving in our first ever yoga session, we stop by to look for a healthy option in CBTL. 128170

We had the Tuna and Olive Ciapizza plus the Sardines and Oil Pasta. We need to stick with the fish. 128513 I love the not-so-noisy ambiance of the place although you could see foreigners with their dates already. Not much crowded than other cafes in the ground floor.

Few minutes later and our orders are already in the counter;
I like the salty flavor of the pasta, but I needed to ask for more grated parmesan cheese to satisfy my taste buds. I think it's just a little bit oily. The ciabizza is great too! It's just somewhat cold already when we had it.

Amazing staff, as always. 128077

PS They have cool photos posted on the wall. 128517

Always my choice when I'm waiting to be fetched in Rob. It easily gets packed with students though. I luckily found an empty table good for me and my sister.

Grabbed a large Caramel Ice Blended while she had some green tea. We took out our books and waited patiently. :)

My new default hangout place whenever I go to Rob Manila.

Why did I only visit here just now? 128547 I should have known this before, but my inner self is still hesitant to go because this is a competitor. Lol #TooMuchDramaCanKillYou

I came here for lunch, good thing I got here earlier than the rest of the people, so I get to have a chitchat with the supervisor (I think) Mel, who welcomed me whole heartedly. When i said that it's my first time here and I have no idea what to eat and drink, just feel like having a pesto, she gave me suggestion.

Tomato and Herb Linguine
This, people of the looloo world, is a healthy option. I think she said that it's somewhat similar to pesto, and I'm thinking t's because of the herbs. Red sauce and a big serving. Finished it in less than 15 mins. A little turn off in this dish is that it's really saucy, and one napkin is not enough for me. 128516 But it's a good one! 128521

Iced White Chocolate Dream Latte
I want her to give me a drink perfectly paired to the dish, she said, "Any drink is good for the linguine since there is no stingy/aftertaste effect."
She also suggested to make it Ice Blended, and I rather go over ice, it's less calories. #DietKuno 128540
The drink is superb! 128525 The quality of the CBTL coffee is honestly better that SB. Sorry SB lovers, partners and fanatics, but I fell in love with the first sip. 128525

I also love the spacious store they have, plus it's not crowded as the coffee shop below. Minus the bad reputation of pickup gals in the below store, this place is perfect for catching up dates and afternoon meetings.

Two thumbs up to Mel, and the rest of the gang.128077
