I’m personally not a fan of matcha and matcha flavored things but I’m willing to try it especially when packed in a unique way.
My friends and I tried this matcha cafe and BGC and I might say, it did not disappoint.
I wasn’t able to take photos of the place but I’ll try to be as descriptive as I can.
The place is dainty, walls were painted with a light millenial pink with green accents. Comfortable couches were placed although there are still some wooden chairs. On the table that we sat on, we sat on a small sofa instead of separate chairs. There were also cubicles that let’s you have more privacy, I noticed that people staying there usually have their laptops on, probably working or whatever. But on these places, matcha puns were written on thought bubbles. Very instagram friendly.
I also noticed that they put in details that people will not easily notice like the fake grass enclosed in their long glass tables. They also had matcha facts around the place.
The place was very cozy and quiet, it would allow you to focus on your work or just have your relaxation time.
The food is pricey. I was shocked that a piece of smore (literally one marshmallow about 1-2 inches) costs around 250 pesos. The serving was too small for the price but you’re also paying for the ambiance.
I might say, hands down to the presentation. Everything looks pretty, as millenials would say, instagram worthy.

The smores was kinda underwhelming but it was a blessing in disguise that the smore wasn’t that frozen so they torched it in front of us.
They’re drinks are also dainty, it’s my first time to see a restaurant serve a drink with bamboo straws.
If I’m not mistaken, it’s the banana tropics drink.
Their desserts vary in terms of how strong the matcha flavor is. Personally, I don’t like how it tastes. I feel that I’m eating grass, (I know people would react violently to this) but some of their desserts are good.
The frozen smores were good, the earthy taste of the matcha ice cream compliments the sweetness of the torched marshmallow. The irony of hot and cold got me too.
The mix platter was a good deal, I suggest you get that if it’s your first time to try the place.
Out of the four desserts, I liked the churros most and the tiramisu least.
The churros was crisp (not crunchy) and the matcha cream filling blends with the cocoa-ey taste of the churro itself.
The cookie was okay, it’ s a cookie with a hint of matcha.
The legendary greenies (brownies but it’s green) and tiramisu was too overpowering for me. It had the most matcha powder and the flavor was too intense for me. My friends liked it though.
Service was quite good, not annoyingly too much but they still cater to your needs. 4/5 for service.
It’s a dainty and cute cafe. The menu was interesting and true to it’s theme. The desserts were well thought of. I would suggest it to a friend.
