Cafe Talk Library

8 Apr 2015 | Cebu City, Philippines —

I fell in love with this cafe the first time I saw it in photos last year from this blog post:

Finally, I got to cross it off my bucket list last April 8. If it wasn’t near our hotel, we wouldn’t have the chance to visit this place. I was expecting to see a “No WiFi. Talk to each other” sign on the door but there was none. Through its glass walls, one can see the overhead racks filled with books and under them are human-sized stuffed bears.

There are also interactive games like Jenga, the block-stacking, stack-crashing game, you might be familiar with.

Nobody greeted us when we entered ’cause the counter is hidden behind those massive books shelves. It is advisable to get the table or room prior to ordering. Inside looks like a cruise ship cabin with double decks. Each room can accommodate 2-4 persons depending on the size of the area.



We chose room #16, it was on the second deck. It needs strong limbs to climb up the ladder that’s made of steel water pipes. When we reached the top, a big stuffed toy was waiting on our table. The room has just enough space to outstretch our legs and not to bump our heads on the ceiling


I wanted to order matcha latte but it wasn’t available so the staff recommended their matcha frappe and Danny had a vanilla smoothie.

Vanilla Smoothie Milkshake — Php150
Matcha Frappe — Php150

The frappe was loaded with whipping cream, topped with matcha powder and decorated with one choco stick-O. The vanilla smoothie was good as well, it wasn’t too sweet or watery.

What I like about this place is the privacy it offers to each room. Also, a very conducive place for reading and studying. Danny and I loitered for some more time just to enjoy our last few hours in Cebu.

Note: This is based on our honest opinion and personal experience only.
