GRAND CAFE 1919
Braving through Manila district on a rainy weekend is no mean feat. But again, searching for this popular cafe has given me the sense of 'good feel' and excitement. And it turned out to be more than what I've expected for. Truly rewarding!
Impressed by its Neoclassical structure, the building is located in Juan Luna St. in Binondo. If you are a first timer of the place, you will be surprised that informal settlers were very much visible nearby and numerous abandoned buildings too. But the cafe's overall feel and its nice ambiance when we were seated in to our assigned table, has changed all that. The place is so IG worthy.
Our table is near the giant Christmas Tree. Yes, the place this early is decked with all the season's frills and 'thrills'. Adding to that is the Christmas music in the background. Perfect!
|A happy tummy Sunday, after all!|
Nice ambiance and a perfect duo of taro cake and muscovado coffee.
|Before else is settled in, a mandatory snap with BFF with the cafe's life-sized tree as background.|
|So much to keep up with BFF, Vicky Teng. |
