After our dinner at RUB Ribs & BBQ, I insisted that we go somewhere else more spacious and more peaceful for a nightcap, and we headed out to this lovely cafe aptly-named Afters. :)
This place is a coffee-and-dessert junkie's heaven. On display were delicious-looking cakes, gelato that they make in-house, and a lovely display of coffee beans from different regions around the world. To not order a drip coffee at Afters seemed like committing a mortal sin.
I ordered Yigarcheffe (Php 159), while my friends got Sagada (Php 159) and Brazil Decaf (Php 159). Our coffee was prepared table-side, which makes the experience more complete we get to watch our drinks being prepared.
While my friends passed on desserts, I couldn't resist not getting gelato, so I got a scoop of Mascarpone Cheese (Php 95).
A single serving of gelato is quite generous that I was able to share it with my friends. I kinda wished I was able to try more flavors, but there's always a next time for a lovely place like this.
I was happy to discover Afters, as I am always on the lookout for artisan coffee shops as they would always have a lot to offer. I will surely go back to try the affogato and the other gelato flavors.
