We are quite fortunate to get invited by a foodie and coffee expert to a coffee shop review . We were greeted by Mr. Stephen Alvin Gueco ( co-owner ) of the shop . The current coffee shop started its operation in July 2013 and their kiosk style take-out corner in Makati opened its door on November 2013 .

The store can accommodate 20 to 25 customers at any given time, however there are some instances that reservations are made by some clientele which wanted their event to be private – They can expand the capacity between 30 to 35 .

inspirational messages and love chains

Unlike other coffee shops it had a quaint home effect , It had several areas in which they allow customers to write and express their thoughts in their message board made from Manila paper, Another portion had love chains where several dozens of chains  are hung . These locks can be purchased at Php 45 at the store.
