There is a new coffee shop in Ortigas area called Where's Marcel? at The Pearl Place, which opened a few months ago. My foodie friends and I got to visit this spacious and modern-looking coffee shop for a weekend meetup.
Where's Marcel? is a coffee shop from Australia, with two branches in Melbourne and Sydney. The location in Manila is the third location for the brand. This coffee shop uses Di Bella Coffee, a specialty coffee brand from Australia.
The coffee shop offers free wifi and comfortable seats which makes it conducive to reading and studying.
For drinks, I had the Hazelnut Ice Blend (Php 180) while my friends had Marcel's Dirty Chai (Php 170 for 12 oz) and Chocolate Milkshake (Php 180).

I love how my Hazelnut Ice Blend was presented, topped with whipped cream, crushed graham crackers and chocolates. My friends loved their drinks as well.
To accompany our drinks, my friends had Adobo Sandwich (Php 125) and I had a Brownie (Php 65). We were also served complimentary S'mores, which we all loved.
We had an amazing time at Where's Marcel? The staff was really accommodating, the ambiance is impressive and the prices are reasonable. I can't wait to go back to try the single origin coffee from their Brew Bar. :)
