Bikes and coffee.
Both words don't really usually combine, but in Epic Coffee Roastery -- or Epic Cafe -- it does.
I have visited this Kapitolyo coffee shop thrice and I always get one drink: the Pour Over Coffee (Php 85). The coffee addict that I am, I watch the barista create my drink like a child watching her favorite show.

The coffee shop is not exactly small to hole-in-the-wall standards, with wooden chairs and real bikes on display.
Not into hot coffee? They also serve Hot Matcha (Php 140). Not into hot drinks? They have frappes as well, like the Sea Salt Frappe (Php 145).

Because Poco Deli's Blackout Cake wasn't available when we had dinner there, I suggested that we go to Epic Cafe for desserts instead. Epic Cafe is Poco Deli's sister restaurant, by the way. :)
While I helped myself with a Pour Over Coffee (again), my friends skipped the caffeine and shared these cakes: Belgian Cake (Php 130), Strawberry Cheesecake (Php 160) and Rainbow Cake (Php 195).
I loved the Belgian Cake's dark chocolate goodness, this lovely dessert's sweetness is just right that it totally made up the absence of Blackout Cake. Moreover, I loved the Strawberry Cheesecake and the cute Rainbow Cake as well.
Like its sister resto, Epic Cafe also has Homemade Ice Cream. I tried the Chocolate (Php 90) while my friend had the Matcha (Php 90).
The ice cream has a thick yet flavorful consistency that blew me away. I could finish the whole thing but two people can share a single serving. Other flavors are Vanilla Bean, Salted Caramel, Barako, Earl Grey and Banana Walnut.
Friendly baristas, delicious cakes and ice cream, relaxing ambiance, and my Pour Over Coffee. Need I say more?
