Books & Brews Cafe’s Iced Matcha and Iced Hazelnut Latte ♡ | Coffee Review

Coffee Rating: 4.5/5

I’ve been eyeing this place for the longest time and finally I’m here!

Located at the back of Mango Square Mall (near the parking area), this place, I noticed, is the go-to for people who wants a safe and quiet place to study, read a book or just enjoy their cup of coffee in peace.

They have an open kitchen/bar which is a plus when it comes to sanitary–we can see how our food and drinks are made.

You can also borrow books while you’re there!

And a big YES for stainless straws and mason jars! ♡ #SaveTheEarth

Okay, now back to my review on the drinks. I ordered the Iced Hazelnut Latte and my friend ordered Iced Matcha.

For my drink, I was happy. It was not too sweet and not to watery considering there was ice on it for some time already. However, for the Iced Matcha, my friend said it it was a bit watery, thus the 4.5 score.

I’ll be coming back for their other drinks next time! ♡

Bastap’s Iced Caramel Macchiato ♡ | Coffee Review

My Coffee Rating: 5/5

Bastap is a localized term for “bus stop” or you could say that’s just how Cebuanos fondly pronounce it.

The café is literally at the bus stop / bus station where people can grab food, chill for a bit, maybe pee and then go. Funny that they didn’t think too far when they were naming the place.

It’s located at Carmen, Cebu which is an hour or so away from the bustling Cebu City.

While we were there for a quick caffeine break, I ordered their Iced Caramel Macchiato which was priced at Php 140. A reasonable price I must say.

At first sip, it was just too sweet for me, but when I mixed it all together, it toned down to perfection and my coffee-loving self is satisfied once again.

By the way, this was the last day I used a plastic straw! I’m trying to stay away from plastic straws from now on.

Photo dump ahead! Photos are all mine ♡
