“Not the best coffee in town”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

I really don't like posting a bad review but I feel compelled. We tried the coffee at the Coffee Break at Plazuela (near SM Mall) and it was, unfortunately, very poor. It was undrinkable, actually, without adding lots of sugar which I prefer not to do. Two local friends had warned us but it was late at night and it was the only place open at the time. A piece of mango cheesecake was the consistency of mousse and not very tasty. The service, however, was friendly and very good and their shop was quite comfortable. I hope their coffee improves. There are several outlets in Iloilo but after our first encounter we chose not to return.

“Your choice for a coffeebreak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Coffeebreak is the best shop to have your coffee while having a chit-chat with your friends or waiting for some friends to meet with. Quality coffee at value price. In addition, you have a wide range of beverage choice and it offers the best complement for your drinks such as cakes, bars pizza, pasta and many more! You'll definitely love this shop!

“Could be a whole lot better.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

They said that this was Iloilo's answer to Starbucks. I was disappointed. Their prices were very reasonable but I guess you get what you pay for. The coffees weren't too bad but I felt that they were full of artificial flavors which I did not like.
