July 2, 2014. It was a local holiday for Pasig City workers and students so I decided to do some walking around Manila alone as I was used to during my student days.
I walked through the usual busy districts, and ended at Rizal Park and decided to go to Luneta Hotel that day. They have a lobby coffee shop called Cafe Yano.
Cafe Yano is still in a soft opening stage, with their signature coffee brews still unavailable. But I ordered a regular cafe moccha and “Lemon Cake”. Let’s call it Lemon Cake because the real name of the cake in Spanish and it’s long. The mocha tastes good, more milky and chocolatey than coffee and I prefer mocha with a more chocolate taste, and the “Lemon Cake” really good.
It’s a total money burn but totally worth it since you’re paying for the food and the place. I should have another go at it next time, when the signature coffee blends are already available.
And these new treats are one of many reasons to come back to the city again.
PS: Apologies for the crappy food shots, I only use a fossilized mobile phone.
