Top 5 Chic Cafes in Manila

Living in a fast-paced and stress-inducing generation, some of us heavily rely on our daily fix of caffeine to either start the day or to continue to function. And thank heavens for your one-stop, neighborhood cafes, right? Coffee shops are a godsend for your daily caffeinated indulgence. Other than that, coffee shops or cafes have the perfect ambience when you need to do work on a completely different environment that is not your office, meet up and chat with your peers, or to just delight your tastebuds with a pastry + coffee combo.

For the coffeephiles, we have listed 5 of the most sophisticated and chic cafes you can find within the Metro:


Caffeined by Artesania

Located in Arnaiz Avenue, Makati, Caffeined by Artesania showcases a refreshing experience by coming up with a unique coffee shop concept. Caffeined is located at the middle of Artesania, a local furniture and crafts store, where you can have your coffee fix while mentally making a list of furnitures-to-buy at the same time. With the surrounding furnishings, the cafe exudes a homey and comfortable ambiance. True to its advocacy, Caffeined supports local products and ingredients from their coffee beans down to the type of bread used for their sandwiches.

This specialty coffee shop sticks true to its name by implementing the concept of “single-origin coffee”, wherein you will have a thorough understanding of your coffee by knowing its geographic origin.
