Their ice blended drinks may be more expensive than their main competitor but what I like about CBTL is their genuine passion for their craft and the opportunity they give to their Brew Your Best Community members and loyal customers. This particular branch have outdoor seating and comfy lounge type area in their second floor. I always order their fattening but delicious double chocolate ice blended but this time i got it for FREE because last Thursday they celebrated National Coffee Day by giving away complimentary coffee based drinks to Brew members and loyal clients. A saving of 195pesos! I ordered a Sardine Pandesal to go with my drink. It was bit hard already because it was left exposed while they prepared my drink.

Free wifi for CBTL Swirl cardholders. The second floor was quite that time because it was a weekday late afternoon. So nice place to lounge and relax. The area was kept clean. Recommended.

Finally tried their cookies and cream milkshake ice-blended and it was meh... As usual, it's all powder, there were a few super small chunks of cookies, like literally 3-4 lang. It wasn't as exciting as I expected it to be. 128557

I adore coffee but I'm not one to drink it often because I want the caffeine to still have kick whenever I need to pull off an all-nighter.

I'm glad that CBTL has a wide selection of non-caffeinated drinks. I usually get the Double Chocolate Ice Blended Drink because chocolates really perk me up. I also have the option of adding a shot of Espresso to my chocolate drink If I wanted some kick.

I usually stray away from this branch though during a movie premiere (usually Thursdays), because it's always packed! Since this is the coffee shop that is nearest to cinemas, movie goers flock to this branch for a quick coffee break or a light snack.

Other solid CBTL favorites are: Spicy Tuna Linguine, White Chocolate Dream Ice Blended Drink, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Moroccan Mint Tea, and Eggs Benedict.

The music is a hit and miss though - a tad inconsistent and sometimes loud. The service is exceptional, as with most CBTL branches.

Cheers
Mickey

late brekky with the bf last week.

my first time here and i liked the second floor area. it was quiet and conducive for studying and small meetings.

baristas were a bit slow. tables were not cleaned immediately.

i love my cafe late. i just added php50 on my all day breakfast. caesar salad was also okay. serving was just right but could've been more serving. haha. breakfast plate i got in it were sausages, bread, eggs and prunes.

they need to add more charging stations pls!

will come back.

While waiting for the opening hours of the mall, I need to grab a drink and be perky.

Ordered a regular latte and I love the balanced taste of the latte. The only downside, the foam is not that good. 128530 but that can be improved

Customer service is remarkable as she immediately remembered my name while handing out my drink. 128077

I just don't like that I have to climb the stairs for dining inside. #tamadproblems 128517

not enough tables, and the barista didn't even mention that it could be full upstairs before I carried my drink, food and laptop to the second floor. It was also so hot downstairs like the aircon wasn't working. And the iced chat tea latte I ordered wasn't cold.

CBTL is actually the worst coffee shop to work in, I always forget they don't have enough tables and they don't have sockets for charging laptops/ phones. Hate to say it but Starbucks is still the best option.

Still the best lemon bar I've tried. It's so zesty and palette cleansing without being too strong. Best dessert for me after a good hearty meal Because it doesn't leave you umay or too guilty.

Their iced matcha green tea was however bleh. So far from Starbucks 128557 it was too bitter and tasted meh. Huhu. Sticking to starbuck's for that. Next time, I'll get my usual chai tea latte as it's awesome.

It’s rare that I get to be up and about on a weekend and find myself in a mall a little past opening time—and ergo, have excellent breakfast choices. (Otherwise, I’d be out of bed drinking lemongrass tea and Yakult and starve myself until lunch.)

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf store at the East Wing of ShangriLa Mall has a waiting staff, meaning it’s not a self-service coffee shop as with its other branches. It also has an indie-hipster playlist, and with the background buzz of other patrons, it makes for a good soundtrack as you keep yourself busy with your phone or a book.

Coffee Bean’s breakfast menu comes with either large brewed coffee or tea. When my order arrived, I couldn’t help but be in rapture over how it was beautifully presented—I just had to let my inner Marlowe come out:

“Smoked Salmon Florentine from Coffee Bean has the loveliest poached eggs I’ve seen.”

I know. Hand me the Nobel Prize in Literature.

It tasted good as it looks—I like the creamy, cheesy texture of the poached eggs and hollaindaise sauce, together with the spinach. I especially enjoyed the part where I punctured the eggs, and out came this drizzle of velvety yolk.

I love beautiful mornings like this.
