From small and cozy to good enough to fit the entire barkada, coffee shops have been popping up everywhere in the country. In Manila alone, there are several coffee shops that have been discovered all thanks to cyclists who never fail to share them on social media. 

But even if you haven’t added cycling to your new list of hobbies, these coffee shops are still worth visiting, and even get a cup of coffee - even to go.

Take a time off from the concrete jungle without having to get out of the concrete jungle in Papakape.
