The Pinoy Wanderer is back to talk yet again about food. But this time it's going to be about desserts.
The Coffee Beanery that we visited is located at the
5th Level of Shangri-la Plaza Mall in Edsa.
After attending the 5:00pm mass last Sunday at the Chapel of the Eucharistic Lord, the three of us (Hannah, Jeb and myself) headed to Edsa Shangri-la to try out Cravings' unlimited coffee and cakes. I've been to Cravings with some of my friends last month but we got there a bit late for the unlimited coffee and cakes promo. (I talked about it on this post). This time my siblings and I got there earlier so yeah, cakes -- here we come!
A Little Background
When we got there, I understood that it was The Coffee Beanery who actually owns the promo. However, referring to it as Cravings unlimited coffee and cakes isn't entirely wrong as they are one and the same company. According to WikiPilipinas: The Coffee Beanery started its operations in 1997 as part of the business line of its mother restaurant Cravings. It started as a coffee bar that was placed inside Cravings outlets to complement the casual dining concept of Cravings.
|Unlimited Coffee and Cakes at The Coffee Beanery is P150.00|
As soon as we were seated and they got what we wanted, the friendly waitress served us with hot and delicious-smelling coffee that we fixed with brown sugar, creamer and steamed milk. Yep, this coffee is unlimited. All you need to do is get their attention if you want a refill.
I'm not sure which and how many variety of cakes they serve but we were able to taste five of them. Check them out.
|Unlimited Coffee and Cakes: Tiramisu|
The first serving for me was Tiramisu. Yep, I kinda noticed that they come in small slices but hey, it's unlimited. You can just ask for more.
|Unlimited Coffee and Cakes: Double Chocolate|
Then they served me with Double Chocolate. This one's a favorite. After eating this particular slice, I kinda lost track of what I ate next. Haha!
|Unlimited Coffee and Cakes: Choco Caramel|
I think the third one I sampled was Choco Caramel. This one's nice too! I stopped asking for refills after this but I was able to taste what Jeb and Hannah had on their plates.
|Unlimited Coffee and Cakes: Devil's Food Cake|
This one's called the Devil's Food Cake. We were joined a bit later by a friend and this is the one that has agreed to his liking.
|Unlimited Coffee and Cakes: Choco Pastillas|
This one here is Choco Pastillas. The slice is bigger because Hannah probably got tired of calling them time and again to refill our plates so she asked for a bigger serving.
I had two cups of coffee and I finished three tiny slices of cake. I seldom enjoy hot coffee, but this one I did. Most of the cake agreed with me. They were delicious, moist (my goodness, I'm trying to recall how my baking teacher describes a good cake) -- uhm, they melt in the mouth? Haha! I was definitely satisfied, and they sure made up for it since the last time i was there. It was a P150.00 well spent specially if you are into cakes.
The people who attended to us were nice and accommodating. That's one of the things I consider when going back to places where I dine to spend quality time with family or friends.

By the way, The Coffee Beanery don't just serve coffee. More than just a coffee shop and just like their mother restaurant, they have all day meals that I might try the next time I visit them.
