This café has one of the most artistic interior I have ever seen. From paintings to collages to pictures and etc. They are not just selling coffees here but they are also selling local CD’s and goodies from their brand

This starbucks in BGC is one of the biggest starbucks I’ve seen. It’s a two-storey loft type building. It has big drop lights in the middle and I like how its interior is mixed in modern-filipino style.

The coziest café in Taft Manila. Café Travel’s interior gives a Korean feeling to it. You are not allowed to wear your shoes/slippers inside each crib-like stall just like in Korean culture. Inside those stalls, you will only find a circular table and pillows and you will just sit on the floor. When it was new in Taft Avenue, you are not allowed to write anything on the walls. You can only write on post-it and post it on the walls. But when I went there recently, there are already a lot of writings on the wall.

This place is where you want to work peacefully. I like the ambiance and the colors of this interior though mostly it’s just brown. They’re not just offering coffee but they also serve meals and wine. I really like their tea and the people here are accommodating and friendly.

Satchmi is my new favorite store/café. It’s also a store because they don’t just sell coffees but they also sell vinyl records, cd’s and turn tables. It’s almost the same look as Simple Origin but this one is not super sosyal as compared to Simple Origin.
Address: 4th floor, SM Megamall Bldg-D Fashion Hall
Just an ordinary café but these chairs are out of this world. This is the first time I saw chairs like these. It’s really cool and comfy. I like how they mix the color orange with brown and black. Nothing new in the interior but I would still recommend that you go here because of their desserts.
CAFÉ MARY GRACE
Café Mary Grace has the same interiors in every branch. It’s always the old-American style that has a little bit of the Spanish-Filipino style. Mary Grace’s interior is full of accessories and the tables have letters of people who visited Mary Grace.
Address: Lucky Chinatown
Not the ordinary Starbucks here in the Philippines. Not ordinary because I think this is the only Starbucks in the Philippines that has Chinese feels inside. It still has a mix of the usual Starbucks interior which uses brown color and warm lighting
Address: Beach Club, Azure Urban Recidences, Paranaque City
A super cute café inside Paris Hilton’s beach club! I am not really a fan of pink but I don’t know why this shade of pink attracted me. As you can see there’s a pink banquet beside the counter. It looks super comfy but when you sit on it, it’s not that comfy.

Brick and wood is a perfect combination! (for me) An industrial-rustic kind of look is not really bad for a café. Well, most of the café’s are industrial but this one really goes well with the drinks. I could actually work here all-day because of it’s interior.
