“Very Busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

This place is always busy but somehow the employees are always cheerful :) It is a two level shop but the square footage is small and probably the reason why it is busy. They only have two registers but I noticed that wait is not that bad compared to other places with twice the number of cashiers.

“Packed on Weekends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Everyone should know that in Ayala their are 2 starbucks coffee shop, one in the terraces and one at the ground floor inside the mall. This shop is often packed with "coffeeholic" from around the business park area so expect long queues anytime of the day especially at night and weekends. More space to sip your coffee downstairs and outdoor sitting is even available. I usually order their caramel macchiato with extra espresso shots to keep me awake. Baristas here are quick and attentive to your needs.

“Quick and friendly baristas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

The baristas here have always been friendly. The last one who took my order didn't remember me though when I just bought coffee from her just a few hours before, but hey not everyone has a good memory.

Cheesecake was too small! :)

“mocha frappe heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

nothing really beats Mocha Frappe of Starbucks! i've tried same item from other cafe and Starbucks is really different, better tasting. The staff are all friendly too. Everytime i go inside, they always call me by my name and they remember it. They also remember the kind of drink i like. :)
