On the way to an out of town trip to the south, we took a pit stop here for some dose of caffeine punch and a bit of snack while we travel. It was a quiet store, clean and its staff very accommodating to our requests.

Our small group got some of their popular choices for beverages which included African Sunrise Latte, Cafe Latte and two new offerings, Mexican Chocolate and Chocolate Hazelnut Ice Blended. We paired these with their classic pieces of Ham & Cheese pandesal and my favorite go to bite here, Sardine & Feta pandesal.

I highly recommend you check out the Mexican drink for its hint of spice and the Chocolate Hazelnut for its forgiving overly sweet hazelnut kick. I know sometimes it is difficult to check out new ones, but these two picks are worth switching to.

Salmon Scramble - the eggs were perfectly cooked (yayy finally!!!). It was soft, creamy, and fluffy. However, the smoked salmon was too salty for me. I had a hard time finishing this. 128563 Kind of overpriced but still, a pretty good meal for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Plus you get either a cup of coffee or tea. 128077🏼

Went back again a week after!!! Not for the eggsben (or any CBTL sandwich 🙄) but for the FREE drink! Haha 128514128541

They're launching 3 new drinks and for all Swirl Card holders, they get to try for free. YASSS!!! 🤗

MEXICAN HOT CHOCOLATE
MEXICAN CHOCOLATE LATTE
MEXICAN CHOCOLATE ICE BLENDED

I can only choose one drink and as recommended by the barista, I got the MEXICAN HOT CHOCOLATE. Perfect since I'm trying to avoid coffee that day plus according to her, you can really taste the cinnamon and "other spices" by getting just the hot chocolate version.

Waiting time was a bit longer than usual because a lot were also availing the promo but the wait was worth it. I liked my hot chocolate! It had the right sweetness and I enjoyed the smell and taste of the cinnamon spice. I actually like this more than the usual hot chocolate (no need to ask for cinnamon powder anymore). 128518 Too bad they don't offer the no sugar added option for this drink.

Anyway, I'll try the latte version next time.

Hello from the saddest egg's ben in the history of all things sad and frustrating huhu 128557128557

Lesson: Do not judge a dish by it's appearance or presentation.

It may look super good and yummy but underneath that "prettiness" is a well done egg. 🙄

It's sad because the other components were okay. The ham and hollandaise sauce was good. Not too salty. Even the super small and bitin salad was also good. Fresh crisp greens. 128077🏼 And the bread - I actually liked it, it's soft and tasty! I'm 80% sure that they used Pan de Manila's pesto bread. 🤔128517

Btw, they gave me a new egg because I told them mine was well done (aba bumawi)... But nope, still well done. My egg loving self is crying!!!! Huhu. 128148128148

For 295 pesos, I should have ordered something else. If only the egg was cooked right, it would have been a pretty good egg dish. But still not eggs ben. Maybe a "sosyal" ham and egg sandwich?? Huhu. Oh wellz, so much hate. 🙄

Decided to make a quick review for Coffee Bean's Cold Brew (145php) just because its my first time to try a take-away cold brew coffee ever (and because it's from CBTL hehe)

According to the bottle, it is steeped cold for 20 hours using top 1% specialty grade Arabica beans. I was asked by a friend how is it different from regular iced coffee and based from what I've read, Iced coffee is basically brewed hot then poured over ice while cold brew coffee is well, from the name itself steeped in cold water and strained for a longer period of time (in this case 20 hours). And also, I've found out that due to longer steeping, cold brew produces a less acidic coffee which is good for those with acid reflux, or gastric acidity problems.

Moving on, the label also says that its a Viennese blend - meaning it has a rich aroma with a hint of chocolate. And on the side part of the bottle, there are different roast choices available - light roast, medium roast, medium dark roast and dark roast. I'm not really sure if it's available in different roasts though. But the one I got says "medium dark"

Anyway, I was hoping that having a cold brew would give me the caffeine kick that I need in this scorching Manila heat. I both love good coffee and summer but it seems like they don't agree well with each other. I don't like buying iced coffee all the time since sometimes it tastes more sugar and milk than coffee itself. So getting this one was really a good idea. First sip and it definitely hits the spot. It was like all my senses came to life! Hehe it wasn't the pabebe kind of coffee, its the real thing. What I also liked about it has less acidic flavor at the end. Perfect for my sometimes uncooperative stomach.

Anyway, like what I said earlier, I'm a big coffee person and so strong coffee is my thing. If you're not, maybe it would take a while for you to like it, or maybe you won't like it at all. I had my workmates taste it and I had mixed reviews. Some liked it, but others said it was too strong for them. I guess I'm gonna leave it up to you to try128521

All four drinks for FREE! 128525128149💯128588

My siblings and I went to CBTL open house yesterday and got to try their new flavor Hazelnut Chocolate Ice Blended. Since we only had 3 swirl cards (borrowed my mom's then my sister and I each have our own) we planned on buying one additional drink but it was not yet for sale and will only be available the next day (today! 128522) so my brother opted to get his favorite Pure Hazelnut Ice Blended. I used my swirl card points to pay for his drink and we all enjoyed our free ice blended drinks after church. 128149

I love the new Hazelnut Chocolate! At first I thought it would be too sweet but it's not! It had a good mix where you can taste both hazelnut and chocolate without one or the other overpowering the flavor of the entire drink.

Tried the newest flavor of Chai Latte, which was the Honey Apple Chai Tea Latte.

I am a big chai latte fan and I love new flavors so this one is a hit for me. Its just a little sweeter than the basic Chai Latte but its perfect for sweet tooths out there. If you're not, maybe this is not for you. Or you can ask the barista to lessen the sweetness for you (like I did on my second try) Haven't tried it in iced - maybe when its not storming anymore I will. You can really taste the honey and apple in it but it doesn't overpower the chai flavor. It actually is like "fall" in a cup for me.127810127809

I heard that this flavor is only available for a limited time so I might be getting this during my CBTL visits for now.9786

One fine lazy Sunday morning, mommy and I went straight here at Coffee Bean for brunch. Whenever we want to just relax, stay a bit longer and not eat a lot, we would normally go to a café or coffee shop. Top choice would be Carpe Diem but because of our not-so-nice visit last time, I suggested we go here instead since I also need to study. I like this branch because it’s not too crowded and most of the customers here are also studying so I don’t need to worry because I am assured of quiet peaceful time here. And for mommy, the seats are extra comfy she can nap hihi. 128541

We ordered the Spicy Tuna Pasta and the CBTL Caesar Salad. First time trying the pasta and it was uhm okay? Nothing special just Spicy Tuna + Tomato Sauce + (Slightly overcooked) Pasta 128550 Serving size of the salad was still as generous as before, m fresh lettuce, croutons, hardboiled egg, and topped with parmesan cheese. I had the dressing separated just so I can control the amount I want. Also ordered Mocha latte to keep me awake while studying. 128518128564

Service was just okay. There’s just something about the baristas.... 128527

Sardines overload because mommy and I loves anything with it! Pandesal for me and pasta for mommy. The pandesal, as always, is very yummy and filling. I like this over any of their sandwiches! 128518 It's my first time trying this pasta and it was okay. The sardines were a lot but I found the dish lacking the spicy spanish sardines taste. It's not as good as Mary Grace's but better than Carpe Diem's. 128513

Back here again!! 128541128523 Love how relaxed and chill the environment is here. And yes, the playlist's super good! I'm not a music loving person, I can live without it (not exaggerating because I really can! 128521) but I just can't help but enjoy the songs they're playing here! 9786128077🏼

For brunch, I had one Roast Beef sandwich and the new Hazelnut Latte! Also had one slice of Chicago Cheesecake for free (BDJ coupon 128513).

The hazelnut latte was really good. Loved how balanced the flavors were. Not too rich/intense! It was sweet, buttery, and hazelnutty!!! 128076🏼 The roast beef, was just okay! It was huge and heavy! Grabe nakakabusog! And lastly, the cheesecake!!!!! Finally, a good tasting cheesecake! Their cheesecakes are amazing!!! 127856128525

Chill and quiet place to stay and spend your "me time". The seats are all comfy, there's outlet in almost every corner so you need not worry about your phone, laptop or tablet dying! 128518 The place is still kinda new so it's clean and maaliwalas! And it's not too crowded. 9786️ The staffs are all friendly, lively, and nice!
