SUBSPACE Coffee House, Review

170112

Since I was confined at home for almost a month, I am pretty excited to go to some places that look interesting for me albeit difficult because my stitch hurts from time to time.

I was looking for a place to have dinner hoping to find something new for my palate to taste, and if you have been working in Ortigas or anywhere else for a long time, say, three years, you know this is a difficult feat.

As I was on my way to Galleria from Emerald Ave., I chanced upon Subspace Coffee House and I asked myself why I hadn’t noticed it before. It was dreamy!!!

The place looks fun with all its fancy decorations and colorful walls but it still gives out a good coffee-shop atmosphere with its distinct coffee aroma, halogen lights and jazz music. The shop itself is quite small but still enough for small events. When I got there, the barista told me they’d be having a party and the coffee shop would be reserved for the next hour.

Mismatched chairs and items in the coffeeshop remind me of my imaginary one, The Big Coffee (My novel, To Be Continued is still available in Amazon). However, what I liked best about it is the stack of books near the cake counter and I didn’t let the chance pass. I sauntered to that bar and waited for my dinner there.

I ordered their classic Iced Americano with a small shot of gum syrup. Probably because of the ice but it wasn’t strong enough for me. But for its price, I think it was ok. Since the shop also provides light meals, I also asked for Tuna Pesto and it was amazing. The serving size looks small in the photo but it was more than enough for me.

I can’t wait to go back and try their cakes.
