“a nice place to chill out with a friend on a lazy afternoon”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Good thing that this place is no longer that crowded as compared when it opened last year. Their donuts though are not something to crave for but it's their lattes that I particularly loved. The ambiance is cozy and you would love lounging on their couch. It is a good place to catch up with an old friend because the place is not that noisy and crowded as compared to other coffee shop/ tea house.

“BEST DONUTS IN THE WORLD”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

This Indonesian chain has taken the Philippines by storm. There is an hour wait at some locations. Oddly, the location at SM Megamall was never terribly crowded. Here's a tip. Go straight to the beverage area- they have boxes of a dozen mixed donuts with relatively no wait. Try the wacky flavors including Avacado diCaprio and the Green Tea donut.

“Blockbuster Donuts”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

I like the taste of the donut. And the flavors was awesome. I dislike about j.Co Donuts is it takes so much time to get to counter because it has so many many customer.

“what's all the fuss?”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

never saw this shop without long lines... is it cheap? is it good? too good? the answer to all 3 is no. they're donuts. sold in a shop that can't even give you peace and quiet if you want to be alone to enjoy your purchase (yes, because of the never ending queue). your best bet is to get your donuts and go. better yet, go to krispy kreme or dunkin donuts.

“Food fad”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Nothing out of the ordinary. It takes an awfully long time before you get your turn to order. Because the line is extremely long, you would want to order a dozen or two to make it worth your while. And since everyone pretty much gets the same idea, you will have to wait even longer - as if an hour isn't long enough.

I wouldn't have come if it weren't for my mom who was craving for their al capone. Personally, I like the oreology. This branch though deserved an extra star just because they had the decency to give away a free cup of their green tea freeze. It's definitely a marketing strategy to get us to order it, but it still did the trick for me as I was appeased.
