The Old Manila Coffee House




I purchased a voucher from Metrodeal a few months ago for The Old Manila Coffee House, but it took a while before I got to use it since they won't allow me to use it for lunch. Whether the reservations were already full or they simply don't allow it, I didn't know. Good thing I was meeting someone that evening, so I got to use it (finally!)

The Old Manila Coffee House is one of the hidden restos at Robinson's Galleria Sports Loop. I would always pass this place whenever I visit Slammers, and it would always get me curious. Coffee always has this appeal to me, you know. :) 
 


The place is like a room inside an ancestral house, complete with a mini-grandfather clock that bells every hour. It is not usually crowded, and like myself, most customers are here for business meetings.


I ordered an all-day breakfast, Longganisang Lukban (Php 140) and Old Manila Clubhouse (Php 185)

I'm crazy about breakfast, and I really love the garlicky aroma of the Longganisang Lukban. Those little pieces of heaven never fails to make my heart flutter. But I was really hungry that I ordered Old Manila Clubhouse, which is good for two people. The mayo overwhelmed my taste buds, which wasn't really a bad thing.

My visit won't be complete if I wouldn't try their coffee. I didn't try just one: I tried two! :)

I got a large Old Manila Brew (Php 75) and a large Scent of Mt. Apo (Php 110)

Old Manila Brew is the resto's original brew. It's something you'd want to drink to wake you up. If you want something sweet, the Scent of Mt. Apo is for you. I love the light foam on top and the smell of vanilla.

I'd love to go back to The Old Manila Coffee House to try their cold coffee and the other breakfast items they offer, but seriously, their voucher gave me a lot of trouble that I'd rather pay cash the next time I visit.
