Your All-Day Coffee and Brunch Spot in BGC!
Located in Bonifacio High Street of The Spa Building on 9th ave – this instagram worthy cafe is literally just across my skin clinic.
Last week, after an event and visiting my derma, I had time to kill until my next event in the evening – so I figured why not check out Caffe Freddo. (They have complimentary WiFi and electric sockets, by the way!)
As soon as I walked in, the smell of coffee instantly welcomed me with the beautiful smiles of the staff. They were very accommodating that I didn’t feel bad for staying for more than an hour hehe.
Caffe Freddo prides itself in offering a very unique selection of coffee in the Metro that cannot be found elsewhere. They have specially brewed premium coffee beans of Bluestone Lane from New York City.
Caffe Freddo is owned by Scott Tan and has the same team behind The Spa Wellness, plus with the support of one of the largest fast casual restaurants in the Philippines – BonChon (I LOVE BONCHON!).
Mr. Tan believes that coffee can be something really special and that its about time to bring in premium coffee in the market. Something that everyone can enjoy and not just as a caffeine fix.
“Anyone and everyone deserves good food, and that includes beverages, and because I’m a fan of Bluestone Lane in New York City – I’ve decided to bring their coffee beans to local shores.” – Scott Tan, owner of Caffe Freddo
With Caffe Freddo's beautiful interiors - it is perfect for a quick catch up with friends, family dining or an intimate event as the cafe can seat up to 50 pax.
Their impressive and carefully -curated Modern European brunch menu consists of fresh pastries, pancakes, eggs (organic/free range) breakfast bowls/plates, sandwiches/tartines, flatbreads, salad/soups, seafood/chicken/beef/pork, and desserts.
Their high-quality dishes with fresh ingredients are served at an affordable price points are made possible by Chef Markus Gfeller – known to have pioneered the fine dining experience in the 90s.
For drinks, aside from coffee – they also serve chai, matcha, softdrinks, beers and wine.
It was raining when I walked in so I was feeling a bit chilly so I ordered a hot cup of cappuccino (P150). Their coffees (hot and cold) are priced from P110 to P190. Reasonably priced I reckon for the quality of coffee beans that they use. You can distinctly taste it in just one sip.
Now that I’ve discovered Caffe Freddo, I’ll make sure that I’ll get my coffee here because they have several milk options: whole milk, almond milk, coconut milk and even oat milk. My go-to drink is Iced Almond Latte and its so hard to find a coffee shop that has this. I only know 2 places that can make this the way I like.(LOYALTY CARD PLEASE HAHA).
I’ve just had a late breakfast so for lunch I ordered Aglio Olio & Pancetta (P350). Cooked in virgin olive oil with lots of garlic and spiced, smoky bacon. This was just right up my alley. Keyword: Bacon
If you’re feeling healthy, then you’re in good hands at Caffe Freddo as all their breakfast bowls are fully customizable – choose from white rice, brown rice or even savory oats.
All-day breakfast favorites are also available: Ube and Matcha Pancakes, Brioche French Toast, Avocado Tartine and Muesli Bowl.
For the mains, their most popular are: Fried Chicken Confit & Fries and Pork Porchetta. Make sure you leave some space for desserts and try the Mango Granita, Greek Yogurt Panna Cotta and Warm Berry Crumble.
I honestly cannot wait to come back here and try more of their food and drinks! I hope to see you all here <3
