Mocha Latte was surprisingly okay. Not the best mocha but it tasted pretty decent. Not too sweet/chocolatey. Slightly bitter than my usual so I had to ask for extra milk.

Pros:
Quiet place. Perfect when you need to work/study
Good internet connection
Service was good

Cons:
Limited power outlets
They don’t have “light meals” (i.e., pastries/muffins, bread)

It’s a premium stop for a wide range of coffee from all over the world. I am guessing that’s is the reason why it is called Clockwork. You can have crafted coffee from Ireland, Germany, France, Portugal, Hong Kong, Greece, Italy, Vietnam, among others. It is also a destination for a full meal, a snack, all day breakfast and alcoholic drinks at night. They have nice quaint ambiance with nice air conditioning and free fast wifi.

It was a snack stop here yesterday and I had one of many sandwich choices, Grilled Chicken Pesto and Brie. It was packed with meat with tame pesto flavors and significant amount of cheese. I wished it had bolder basil element to it. I had Crimson as well, a fresh mixture of fruits. Beet was its most dominant ingredient. The drink was refreshing and not as sweet. My only complaint was its portion, it had too much ice.

My companion had Chocolate Crepe with Vanilla Ice Cream. She loved it too much, evident from her facial features and an empty plate after.

There's a number of coffee chains around Venice already and when the line at Starbucks earlier was horrible due to a promo, we went to UCC Clockwork because I was ready for a mean pour over. My friend probably wanted his sweet coffee fix but he can't afford to queue much longer so he agreed to accompany me here instead.

I love UCC Clockwork. I've been a fan since I set foot in their Bluebay branch and I've frequented Estancia branch, too. This time, the one near our office is quite small. It doesn't have the interiors that the other branches boast but if it has good coffee, then all is well.

I got my Brazil pour over and my friend got the HK coffee. I love Brazilian beans and it costs 170php. Yeah, price can go lower but someone needs to pay lease and workforce. Why 4 stars - I thought they can be a bit more accommodating to us since there were only a few folks inside the place.

Will I return? Yes, because you will never forget a good cup of coffee.

Service was great! Was here for my coffee break with a friend. I've tried eating here before and ordered a breakfast meal which I could no longer recall. All i remember was I hated it. So I wanted to try it again and see if anything changed. To my dismay, I ordered their Spinach Lasagna and found it quite bland. Anyways... for P300? it wasn't worth it. As for the coffee? It was perfect. I usually order the iced caramel latte and theirs was reallly good128076

UCC Clockwork is the newest addition to the list of restaurants and cafes in Venice Grand Canal Mall. UCC Cafe is a well known Japanese Coffee Shop that offers mouthwatering Japanese desserts and distinctive quality coffees and teas. They also served modern Japanese dishes.

I went to UCC Clockwork after having dinner and order the Kori Kohi for Php220.00. It's made of Cold Brew Sumiyaki Ice Cubes, Warm Milk and Syrup. "Sumiyaki Coffee is a Charcoal Roast Coffee."

Kori Kohi - 11088110881108811088 4/5
"It was served in Sumiyaki ice cubes. You need to pour the milk and sugar syrup in the coffee. The flavor of Sumiyaki coffee will intensify and get stronger once the coffee made of ice cubes melt and blend with the other ingredients. If you want to balance the flavor, there were enough milk and syrup served which you can add."

Overall, I enjoy drinking my Kori Kohi. They even have a superb service... alert and attentive staff.

Super disappointed w our orders. 🙄🤐128534128529128557

Background: I've been meaning to dine at UCC but never had the chance because too expensive for me. I've tried the seafood salad before and liked it. So when a new concept store opened w more breakfast food options and w a nicer/prettier set up, I just can't miss the chance. They already have 2 branches (or 3?) but the odds are still not in my favor because they were all too far and not that accessible. But fortunately, they finally opened a branch near our condo. Since my shift will start late last Monday, I asked Ony if we can have brunch/early lunch here. He agreed since he's free and wasn't that busy. Yayy!! 127881

🔶 Food: Was so tempted to order the Fresh Corned Beef (but not available during our visit) and the Eggs ben but Ony's not a fan of eggs (opposites really do attract! 128518) so instead, we ordered the SAUSAGE TARTUFO and GRILLED CHEESE w PULLED PORK.

PASTA: Super bland pasta w weird after taste. And also, asan po yung truffle? Been craving for truffle since last week so I was excited to try this but WALA. Huhu. I was reminded why I hate creamy white pastas. 🤐128557

SANDWICH: Not cheesy, at all. The pulled pork was too saucy, way too much BBQ sauce. 128529128531 Saving grace was the sunny side up egg which I ordered as an add on for 50 pesos. Hayz.

🔶 Price: TOO EXPENSIVE for meh food. Not worth it. Serving size's not too small, though.

🔶 Service: Really nice and helpful servers. Service's pretty fast, too.

🔶 Place: Not as nice/pretty as the other branch (based on the photos online). Small and limited space.
