“Incredible cheesecake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

The Coffee Bean cheesecake is renowned in Manila and it doesn't take much figuring to understand why. I think they add in a little lemon zest and it gives it a real zing. Try either a slice of New York or blueberry (or even better share one of each!).

The coffee's also really good and the ice-blended caramel (my own favourite) isn't as cloyingly sweet as in some of the other chains (especially Bo's and Krispy Kreme).

The ambience is very bright and fresh and the Robinsons Place location offers a welcome break, if you're tired of the mall and just want to get your mojo back.

Lovely staff as well - very down to earth and friendly.

“Decent cup of tea in Manila”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

If you are looking for a proper cup of tea in Manila, go to the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.

After 3 weeks travelling in Philippines we finally found a place to great a proper cup of tea. Breakfast was good at 245 pesos for a Eggs benedict and large cup of english breakfast tea. Will come back. The branch we visited was greenbelt 5 makati.
