For the last coffee shop, we stayed at Toby’s Estate Coffee in Salcedo Village. It is two streets away from the previous location of Commune. Upon entering, we were greeted by courteous staff and a sea of people! We did not anticipate a lot of customers pining for coffee at almost around 3 in the afternoon. Maybe its the typical time of their day, but a great welcome indeed.
I will just have a quick review on this one and I hope my photos will do well. Gosh, I haven’t blogged about this given the previous month and now I am left with less words to say. My bad, geez!
We were assisted immediately and found a table to feel comfy with. But as the time passes by, the other customers started to leave and I guess their coffee break or meeting was done. The place is nice and cozy, with eccentric decorations and nifty space, we can spend a day in here. Our attendant was eager to explain and recommend which to try and yeah, you can keep them as friends I guess. And after deciding which to have, we had these:
Flat White and Pistachio Cheesecake is a great combination! Pistachio is good, cheesecake is better but with Pistachio and Cheesecake in one dessert, you guess it is the best? Nope. This is better than perfect!
Dark Chocolate Chewy Cookie and Gibraltar. There may be some other flavors of cookies, but I wanted to have dark chocolate chewy cookie. It is good and it is somehow close to a brownie. On the other hand, Gibraltar is a coffee that is off the menu. It has two shots of Ristretto. I failed to ask our attendant what’s with Ristretto but, “Ristretto is traditionally a short shot of espresso coffee made with the normal amount of ground coffee but extracted with about half the amount of water.” Thanks a bunch, Google.
Hurrah! Pistachio is looking good and I am not sure if this is Shekinah or Sherina’s hand. This one is unscripted for sure! (P.S. They are not twins)
