As you may all know, this is where I indicate why and how this series was born and that is through the perseverance of Joy of Paperless Panda. Through her efforts, it stuck to me why not share my faves with you guys so I could be of help of some sort in your choices when it comes to certain things.
This week’s post is about my somehow favorite cafe.
When I was still in college, that was the time I learned about hanging out at coffee shops and trying to be productive whenever I was there. There are various coffee shops or cafes here in Taft and none of which is like this one. I’ve encountered this cafe when I was in SDA for a class for one term.

This Figaro is in Greenbelt 3 and so far, they treat their customers well. I know it’s their job to be accommodating and be nice to customers but their staff is really the best as far as I have encountered!
For a person like me, I appear that I always bring my house whenever I go out to blog or to study. I bring my notes, book, laptop, tablet, chargers, papers, pens, highlighters, that stuff. So just my stuff alone would occupy around two (2) of their tables already and if I order still, the stuff I have would now occupy almost 75% of the two tables. And sometimes, I feel that other people are staring at me because I tend to bring so many things / gadgets that may deem unnecessary but truly, they are really are important!

When I visited their branch, I was preparing for an exam but I was also working on another post. My friend, Sabrina (of The Sab Stuff) was going to meet me there and going to teach me stuff about calligraphy that I still do not know of. When she got there, she put out her stuff and we now occupied the three (3) tables! Well, we really did not notice if people were staring at us. The staff was really nice since they helped us in fixing the table and answered our queries politely.

When it was dinner time, we contemplated if we’re going to try the eat all you can eat promo there but when we inquired about the food choices. We got sad since what we wanted was not offered so we decided to eat some place else. They were kind enough to tell us that it was not available and personally, I do ask a lot of questions and I did not feel any negative vibe from their tone or actions.
We asked if we could have “our spot” to be reserved even if we occupied two tables. They said yes! To our surprise, the manager even told us to give them a call if we will be at the place they could reserve the tables. (Doing that is actually part of the to-do list!)
But after we got back from our dinner, the spot was still there yet the plugs were occupied and I badly needed to charge so we transferred to another spot, which is the couch!
That’s the couch, it is very comfortable and it ignites productivity and creativity and very near to a socket!
|The socket is by the round table.|
|Their bookshelf is very alluring to the eyes!|
The café is surrounded with such nice decorations which really boosts the senses, the brain and the heart!

We also inquired about workshops and Figaro. They told us to just give them a call and they could reserve the place as long as it will not disrupt the other customers; respect their personal space as well. They even suggested a place, which is near the aircon.
Talking about food, my favourites from them are:
- Chocolate Muffin
- Iced Chocolate
- Pesto Pasta
- Classic Pepperoni
Just a little background, I first encountered Figaro back in college. I tried them for the very first time when I had class in SDA. I just fell in love with their chocolate muffin and iced chocolate! For me, they are the best! It has the right amount of sweetness.
I suggest you try going there. The staff is very nice! (I feel like I have been saying that for quite a while now and I feel you might hate me for that. Haha!)
