    One can immediately sense their passion for serving quality coffee once you step inside the cafe. As a first time guest, I was even offered a complimentary cup. One of the few best in Manila.

    Fantastic service and excellent whisk(e)y selection, especially for Manilla. They have the absolutely divine and extraordinarily rare bourbon "George T. Stagg" in stock. Beware: it's 73% alcohol.

    We made Walter's Favorite here! 😁 go ahead, give it a try. I love the coziness and the ambiance of this place. Perfect place for a quiet hideout after a long day at work.

    Tricky to find, but once inside it's like a secret hideout with friendly faces and great music. The coffee is great, but the cocktails are phenomenal. The whisky and gin menu is pretty impressive too.

    I love how the staff looks after me so nicely here! Their Lamill with milk/cream & beef tapa on brioche always make my day! Coffee's served until 7pm. Try their tri-apple cold pressed juice, too!

    Try the summer related espresso with different type of sugar in test tubes to choose from! Note that coffee is up to 5:30pm a day only and cocktails are served by 6pm :)

    A nice place for coffee. Just say how you want your coffee to taste and they will recommend one for you. Ethiopia is good - with a kick of berries and maple? Staffs are very accommodating.

    Best seat is by the bar! Enjoy your drink while chatting with the bartenders. Also, if you're not quite sure what to get, they're always willing to whip up something off menu. :-)

    Curator is like Hogwarts' 'Room of Requirements' where you'll only find it & get in if you're looking for a place to try out concoctions pretty new to your tastebuds.

    Try the left coast for a refreshing twist on your usual mojito and if you're up for something more daring, go for "the last word". beyond awesome service and great ambiance! 👍👍

    Well, if this is your first time to visit then it is better to sit at the bar. The barista has a deft in coffee making. And the barista will provide recommendation to drink depends on your preference.

    Great place to chill. It's a very intimate space, low key from outside, you'd think twice, is this really the place? You walk into a door and you see this hidden lair.

    Can be quite tricky to find. It's walking distance from Greenbelt 1 cinemas. It's located on the corner of Legaspi and C. Palanca. Don't forget to ask the baristas about the Brew of the Day

    This intimate place is the ideal hideout for coffee drinkers wishing to escape the overwhelming responsibility of cooking a multinational corporation's books.

    Favourite low key spot in Makati. Serving up good coffee and even better cocktails. Brunch menu is also appetising.

    One word: awesome. The guy named Jericson (sp?) custom-made me a cocktail I hadn't been able to find anywhere else in the country!

    Haven't tasted their specialty coffee but The Curator himself, Jericson Co, can craft cocktails to fit your current mood.

    Great coffee (the best latte) and service. Quiet, too, at least when we dropped by.

    Very cozy but not for people who want to have the sun/light. Hopefully they can add more food options.
