I'm currently addicted to their Salted Caramel brownie! Always a great and classic combination, therefore translating into a crave-worthy piece of dessert! 128077

I paired it with the new Vanilla Almond Latte and I have to agree with Em D's description-- very vanilla-y and almond-y! For the lack of descriptive powers at 12am!128514 But it was too sweet for me, I still prefer their tea lattes...128522

Cute takeout box btw, right?128070

After a sleepless Sunday night, I really needed something to perk me up the next day... I drove to Tomas Morato (very slowly) to get my java fix... I got there before 8am and there were a lot of parking slots available... Only one other person was in the store at that time, a fellow early bird enjoying their Eggs Benedict... It was pretty cool inside the store actually...

I was tempted to get my favorite Moroccan Mint Tea latte, but I decided to go for my next favorite of their tea lattes...I got the Double Vanilla Tea latte, which doesn't have that hint of spices that the Moroccan Mint has... It has a pronounced vanilla taste that I find comforting... I think their Double Vanilla flavor is a good choice for the people who will try their tea lattes for the first time... I think the familiar taste is more appealing to many people while the Moroccan Mint is a bit of an acquired taste... All the tea lattes are made with nonfat milk automatically, no need to specify such to the baristas...

I like their baristas, it's just that their cashier moves a bit slow... But she's really nice...128522

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and I just love those fluffy scrambled eggs, crunchy bagels and marmalade.
Everything about it is just so hearty, and gives you so much energy. I love getting my breakfast food at this place because it's not reheated.

Egg Benedict with salad, the Hollandaise sauce is spread onto the ham & poached egg, up to a perfect level.

Also, I love their toast with nice smell and crunchy texture, to be eaten with its butter and strawberry jam.

I always chose to have a cup of tea as I could choose my preferred tea from a larger range of choices.

Why I love CBTL's Breakfast-ALL-Day?

1. It has nice toast.

2. I love the cranberries in the salad.

3. The tea is nice and refillable.

4. Not TOO full & of low calories.

5. Available ALL day long! Hehe.. 128513

I'm really getting into Coffee Bean's holiday drinks and their purple planner! And it's your fault Golly B!128515

I really like this store when it comes to studying! The baristas are really nice (nicer than the ones from Starbucks, I kid you not)... They have a fast broadband connection (for research puroses128514) that even let's you check in your base from time to time... It's pretty bright on the second floor too, if you sit by the windows... And the place is really quiet up until mid afternoon... Go early if you want to be assured of a parking space...

Come early evening, the students start piling in and it becomes a bit noisy... But nowhere near how noisy and rowdy the crowd of Starbucks Tomas Morato gets... Still a relatively quiet in comparison...

I ordered their Moroccan Mint Tea Latte with their pistachio bread... Forgot the correct name, but I thought it was a bit dry... I wouldn't recommend it... I still love the Moroccan Mint Tea Latte anyway, so there's that!128522 It doesn't have that strong caffeine kick if that's what you like... And if you are relatively awake or if you want something late at night, this is a good choice... 128522

Late post128522

I love quiet mornings in coffee shops, where you can sit and think... Too early for rowdy students, just a few people with their laptops and some seniors reading newspapers...

Still my go to order at Coffee Bean-- Chef's Tuna sandwich and their Moroccan Mint Tea Latte!128525 Very filling brunch anyday...

Btw, Leann is one awesome barista! Super accomodating!

ANG MGA PARAANG PWEDENG GAMITIN ANG LOOLOO

At dahil mag-isa akong tumatawa dito at pinagtitinginan, kailangan ko mag-mukhang busy... Ito ang paraan ko mag-busy-busyhan... Guys mag-meeting lang kayo please... Walang basagan ng trip, nemen!!!128514128514128514

At dahil biglaan, di ko niyaya si Ruth D para sa hiritang walang pupuntahan... At dahil biglaan, busy din si Roy Lambert T... Trabaho talaga nakakasira ng samahan!!!

At dahil ang layo, nagpaplano kumain si Carla M at Julie J ng wala nanaman ako... At dahil ngayong araw ko naisipan, nasa ibang-bansa naman si Dastine S at Chichi T... Paki uwian kami ng luntiang sorbetes o kung hindi nyebe... Paki-preserve, thanks with love!128536 #effortless At syempre si Jenn N kailangan humirit at patawanin ako na parang baliw... Excuse me, not true... Medyo lang... Pero in fair, nahiya ako ha... Che, mag-aral lang kyo dyan please... Wala akong kutsilyong dala... Si Kiko G na-imagine ko pa kumakanta!!! naka-dreadlocks pa... #habanangkwento

Salamat Golly B at talagang nagustuhan ko subukan ang CBTL ngayon... At ngayon din... Pano naman ang ganda ng planner... Kaya kahit may planner na akong pula mula sa ka-kumpetensya, eto nanaman ata ako!!! 128514 E sana di nakakataba ang kape...

Sige na, success ang pagiging "busy" ko... Akala nila normal na ako uli!128077

overall i was relaxed with cool air conditioning.

Double Hot Chocolate for this late night drink. And to somehow help in loosening my nerves out.

Here's the story - I had dinner with workmates at the newly opened Nihonbashitei (review to follow hopefully ASAP 128514) and desserts at Book and Borders. After desserts, I called a car to bring me home and got me stuck in really heavy traffic for 40 minutes, only to find out E.Rod is flooded thanks to the rain. My driver backed out and just brought me back here in Morato. Sooo, I guess I'll have to hang on a bit more and hope the flood subsides asap and the traffic goes away fastest! I wanna sleep!

As to this CBTL branch, this is my first time after their renovation. They have a better ambiance and general feel inside. It's two floors, with the second floor cramped with studying people. I liked the very summer-y wallpapers and the vintage-ish lights that also gave me the modern feel. 128077🏻

I also liked that the al fresco area is divided to smokers and non-smokers. Really good move so that non-smokers like me won't die inhaling second hand smoke. 128514128514

Haven't been back in ages! They renovated and the place looks great!128588🏻

Looked for a place to stay for awhile, since the road going home isn't passable ATM... Wasn't in an adventurous mood, so I went to CBTL for something familiar...

I took advantage of their Monday promo, P100 for their featured beverage... I got the Chef's Tuna and the Vanilla Latte... The baristas were so accomodating! Thank you! And the food and coffee was pretty good!128077🏻

I really appreciated one of the staff, who was so OC in cleaning all the surfaces and making sure the trays were bused... I was so used to the water pitcher being on the second floor (being a regular for several years)... But he stopped me as I tried to pour milk for myself this morning from their silver pitcher... He said the water is available downstairs. He accompanied me as I descended a flight of stairs. He then gave me a glass of water... Another barista took the plastic cup from me and threw it away for me...

It was funny because Kuya was waiting outside as I left, thanked me, then went back inside and cleaned the door... As in the part I touched! 128514 hahaha, message received Kuya! But I really appreciated his zealousness in cleaning!128522

I took a half-day leave last Friday to accompany my cousin to a private calligraphy lesson with Imma Frias. (she's @dyosaimma on IG! and that's her handwriting on the photo hehhe) I also enrolled because I badly need a refresher course.

I ordered their Sardine Garlic Linguine for my lunch, and a Vanilla Affogato Ice Blended drink.

The linguine was good, and that's what I always order, just to be on the safe side. 128517

The drink was nothing special though. What I like about it is it's not too sweet. For its price, I think I'll order my staple The Ultimate next time.

Imma got us a Triple Decker Cheesecake, and I really liked it. I heard they don't offer it in all branches because the sales aren't that good. 128517

This place is perfect for quiet (early) afternoons as there are only a few patrons. 9786

Had their freshly brewed coffee for the day - Brazil Cerrado, cheesecake for my daughter and chocolate chip cookie for the bunso 128079128077 . Nice place, good coffee the only thing is the server forgot to buzz us even though the food was already ready 128563 tuliro? So when I stood up and asked the
manager about our order, she reprimanded the server 128513 ready na for pick up sa counter pero bakit hindi mo binuzz 128532 that's why 4 stars lang...and maybe so I like my homey coffee shop Starbucks better...I like the idea that they call your name when order is ready 9786️ rather than being buzzed 128547

The place is very cozy and not too crowded. There are many seats available for their customers. The staffs are very cheerful and friendly. This is the best CBTL I've ever been so far. :) 10084
