Makati Coffee Crawl

Some like it hot, some like it iced; Some like it strong, while some like it mild. Still, regardless of your coffee preferences, we got you covered!
In a bustling metropolis just like Makati City, it's not surprising at all why there's a population that is in great need of coffee. Aside from being a great drink (‘cause it has a variety to choose from), it gives out a kicking energy that is sure enough make you energetic all throughout the day!

But for some people, cafés are more than just a cup of coffee. It’s a place where they can chill out, have a chat with friends, do some work if they feel like their office is a bit stressful, or simply a nice place to take some instagrammable shots.
Now, how to find your ideal coffee shop? Check out our list below 'cause you might find your soon-to-be one of your favorite places:

Everywhere you lay your eyes on there are vibrant flowers, poppy chandeliers, walls with inspirational quotes, and nooks with bloom making it hard to resist not taking pictures!
Overwhelmed by its interiors, you can easily see why it's called "Most Instagrammable Cafe in Manila". Plus, it's open until midnight, perfect for some late night coffee runs isn't?

There's nothing more comforting than sipping a great coffee while petting an animal! Well on this case, it's with life-sized toy animals.
Zoo Coffee is a  popular coffee chain in Korea that is now roaring over the Philippine coffee scene. This themed coffee shop will make you feel like you're in an animal sanctuary with all the scattered stuffed toy animals around the place. 
There's a giraffe that'll welcome you in the entrance, monkeys and snakes swinging on a tree, pandas sitting right next to you, and tigers lazily lounging around.  As for their menu, fill your appetite with a Banana Chocolate Waffle or cool yourself with a tasty bingsu – a Korean shaved ice dessert.
Staying true to its theme, this cafe provides guests with a fun experience from its wild interiors down to its mouthwatering menu.

Coffee has always brought people together, may it be catching up with old friends, meeting for the first time, or doing business together which is why finding a cafe that'll make you feel comfortable and chill at the same time is absolutely perfect! Luckily, one dreamy coffee shop is just around the corner!
One of the few third wave coffee shops in the country every caffeine addicts must visit is Toby's Estate, a specialty coffee chain that originated from Australia known for sourcing their beans from the owner’s estate in Panama. While some of its branches serve only express, this one tucked in Salcedo Village is a perfect spot for hanging out. The whole place is very much vibrant due to its white walls perfectly in contrast with reclaimed wood furniture.

They don’t just brew, they also assure that you'll have a quality time with its warm, homey, and work-friendly vibes.
As a certified coffee lover, there’s more to just finding a café that offers the best-tasting coffee. Some look for the food served, location-wise, ambiance, and millennial as it may sound the ‘Instagram-worthy’ interiors.  Just look through Makati’s towering skyscrapers and busy streets, you'll eventually find yourself into somewhere interesting.
