Visited here for a spot of tea and cake and was not disappointed. My boyfriend and I shared a pot of English breakfast tea and as Brits abroad were happy to see it was Twinings and served with lovely big mugs, it was a very comforting experience (haha!) Also tried their renowned calamansi muffins and could have easily eaten 10,... More

Come for a good view of beach but not if you seek great coffee, espresso or an honest menu. I was charged 120 PHP for an "Americano" espresso that tasted like Folgers (cheep) coffee. When my coffee was delivered seconds after ordering and after tasting I instantly recognized it was not espresso, so I began looking around and realized they... More

Good day, Thank you so much for your review. You are right, we do not have an Espresso Machine at Real Coffee, we use a stovetop Espresso Maker which we call a Mocha Coffee Maker, from Italy. We have been making our coffee this way for 17 years on Boracay. Our coffee beans are a blend of imported beans including... More

Real Coffee is the place to visit when in Boracay. It's a great place to go to when you want to drink coffee or hot chocolate as well as enjoy the view of Boracay. I brought my 83 year old mother there and she had a great time. We even got to meet the owner, Lee, who was very gracious... More

Honestly, I did not like the coffee at all, but Mama Lee is so sweet! Seriously, the whole staff at this place is great. It has a very home-like feel to it and there are so many guests that go there that have been a guest of hers for 10 or more years. We went there 3X and every time... More

Tried their calamansi muffin and it lived up to expectations. I also had their mango shake. Lacked a bit of sweetness but it was filling. Had a pleasant view overlooking the beach. Great place to spend a hot afternoon.

Thank you for your review😎🌴just a note on the mangos, at this time of year they may not be so sweet as they are not really in season, also we only add sugar to our juice on request, sorry if no one mentioned that. All the best More

From the second floor, enjoy the view while you eats your calamansi muffins. The muffin is moist with a twist of zest. Love their peanut butter cookie. Had ordered the Real Coffee expecting it to be great but somehow it just taste like an ordinary coffee. Well, quote from the cafe, as Momma Lee says " Eat dessert… It will... More

Great view overlooking the sea for watching the sunset. Good ambiance as well. Try their Calamansi muffin. Only drawback i find is that it closes early. But overall, a very good place to have a meal or drink and just chill

The muffins and brownies were good. The coffee, however, was pretty ordinary. I was hoping the Real Coffee would really stun me.

Though everyone is craving for the calamansi muffin my personal favorite is their peanut butter brownies and a cup of coffee . I cannot get enough of the view from the 2nd floor. It's really something to look forward to.
