I’m not really the coffee-dessert kind of person. I’d rather go eat a bowl of rice, yes anytime of the day, than go for coffee and dessert that would sometimes cost me like I ate three meals.
Yesterday was different though. I was itching to go out of the house and chill somewhere cozy and nice where I can listen to music, blog, update my stories, and do something productive.
I searched through the Internet to find some coffee shops around Ortigas area and saw Subspace Coffee along Emerald Avenue. I saw some photos and thought it looked cute. After all, it’s Korean-inspired.
It’s a tiny place and doesn’t look pretty outside but it indeed looked cozy so I found myself sitting inside and browsing through their menu.
Of course, I had to order their famous Purple Potato Latte. Cute design, by the way. You can also ask their baristas to make a design of your choice. The latte tasted like any other lattes, it’s just that it’s purple. It was actually too sweet for my taste and it went cold a little faster than I expected. Not sure if they would have reheated it if I have asked. Other must-trys are the Dark Mint Chocolate and Peanut Butter lattes.
I didn’t bother to order desserts since I fancied nothing among their displays. But I heard their Salmon and Egg turnover are good.
And have I already mentioned that their playlist consists of Kpop songs? Yes, it’s on loop! You’ll so totally dig this in if you’re a Kpop fan!
Price range: Lattes start from 120PHP to 155PHP (16oz) ; Desserts start from 50php to 120php.
Address: Unit 103, GF Grand Emerald Tower, F. Ortigas Jr. Road, Ortigas Center, 1606 Pasig / 655-7077
