“Specialty coffee at the center of Surigao City”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

I go here for the free wifi. There I said it. The password didn't change in the 6 months I've been going there, so sometimes I just hang around the nearby staircase outside the cafe and browse.

BGC's got pretty decent cakes. Stay away from the banoffee though. It's better to just order off the hot menu. They make a pretty mean carbonara! Dining in Surigao is pretty cheap, and this one is relatively pricy yet is still cheaper than the Manila average. Their specialty coffees don't go past the 100-peso mark, if I remember correctly.

Coffee? The espresso's pretty standard with the requisite brown foam and all. This is the most accessible place you can go to for specialty coffee. Bastie's the best in Surigao, but that one's near the airport. If you can't haul your bum that far, BGC will do.

Its location is good--no, strategic. It's situated near 2 bars, and anyone looking for a booster after a night of drinking will surely flock to this place. It's also near the plaza and to at least 3 ATMs, so yeah.

The proprietor's pretty cute too.
