“Get Cosy with a great cup of coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

A home turned into a most unique coffee shop. I'm a sucker for homey ambiance establishments and this is definitely one of those. A very relaxed place with decently priced coffee and cakes. And if by some reason you're in the mood for some red, they have those too priced decently of course! A must visit if you just want to unwind.

“Homey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

we were curious of the place and so we surveyed the place which is located just across the church. it was like home,it has no restaurant atmosphere.you can order cake and coffee and you can chit chat with friends as long as you want.there are old collections on display in the area both at the ground and at the second floor.The place is quite relaxing to while away time with friends

“Like ala Starbucks feel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

If you want to have coffee (hot or cold) in the afternoon or cool-off from the heat, try this place out. It does have tables outside if you want an alfresco feel.

“Jose Karlos cafe is Tacloban's Starbucks.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2010

Jose Karlos is a good hangout place in Tacloban. There were no fancy coffee shops in tha city before so this was an "in" thing to bookworms, youngsters, and the likes of those who are avid coffee shop fans. I have a British friend who, whenever he visits Tacloban, loves to sip evening coffees in Jose Karlos. He loves the ambience. Their Cafe Americano is a must-try. There's Internet access as well throughout the shop. I usually visit the place to read a good book or chat with friends who are not from the city. It's in the heart of the city, along a not-so-busy street. Hail a tricycle and they should know the place.
