Lazy coffee afternoon at Kapetita

Sugar and I planned for weekend coffee crawls, something that materialized for a couple of weekends before we got busy with work numbers and stressed about keeping our souls intact. It’s just me for now, and damn, I miss that girl so much. Anyway, there are not many speciality coffee shops that I know, but Instagrammable ones? Ahh, there are way too many. There are many of them even here on my side of town.


Kapetita is a good 3-minute walk from SM Taytay, a good place to go when you’re too tired of dessert coffee a.k.a. Starbucks and Dunkin’s tables are all occupied. It’s in a residential area so I suppose it used to be a house and the owners transformed it into a cozy place where a group of friends could gossip over cups of coffee and good old cafe food. 

The place is small, but it looks like a good place to hang out. I like the modern Korean-inspired interior with its white walls adorned with floral paintings and massive windows that give way to natural light. It gave off a homey vibe – peaceful and cozy. If there was enough space for couches, I bet it would feel as if I am visiting a friend’s home to have coffee and gossip. 

Since I had a lot to eat for lunch and felt too sleepy, I got my signature americano along with triple chocolate brownies which by the way were superb. I was expecting the good old brownies in cupcake sheets but this one went beyond my expectations because it also had dried fruits and nuts on top sprinkled with powdered sugar. It looked lovely and complimented my black coffee well. 

If you are looking for a new place to have coffee with one or two of your friends, this is the place to be. Especially if you are from Taytay, visiting SM Taytay, or you just want a new place to go. They have a good selection of food and drinks, and I even asked for a grilled cheese sandwich to go. 
I’ll write some more about coffee shop encounters just for fun. And if you want that too, watch this space.
