EAT: COFFEE PRINCE CEBU
I know talking about Coffee Prince is kind of a cliche now because too many people have their own share of post about it. But I still got the courage to post this as I wanted to share the wonderful time the place has given to me and my friends.
It was raining when my friends and I visited the place so I wasn't able to take a good shot of the cafe's cute exterior. As expected from any Korean owned establishments, it was aimed to bring something cute and pretty to their customers. They were able to do that with the help of their whole interior design and cute stuff toys and decors.
It is safe to say that the whole place is full of Instagram worthy angle! The props and toys all around will make your day brighter too. I just hope they are constantly sanitized. :)
I was glad that they had wonderful workers too who gladly served us. I really value good service above everything else so I must say that the HR staff of the company did a great job in hiring the best people.
We were not hungry when we visit the place so we only ordered drinks for ourselves and a snack for the three of us. I had my usual fave- the Matcha Frappe which tastes really good. It is not too sweet and not too bitter. I hate it when cafes put too much sugar on their tea just because they think it would be bitter without it. But honestly, it mustn't be mixed with too much sugar or else it would defeat its purpose of being a tea.
My friends had their usual chocolate drinks. Cherry had the Java Chip Frappucino 170php while Shiela had something which is also chocolatey. Sorry, I forgot the name hehe but my friend says it is also really good.
My bff Shiela decided to order a chocolate waffle 170php for the three of us which has ice cream as its topping. In fairness, it tastes good. It wasn't mind blowing but the blend of the chocolate waffle and the chocolate flavored ice cream was really good.
The rest of the afternoon was spent goofing around with the huge stuff toys and picture taking. lol
The whole place is extremely spacious. They even have decors and eating areas outside just to make sure everyone will have a place to sit in. The area is also photo worthy.

I don't usually hoard cute and girly stuffs but I also adore them. I seldom buy something that pleases only my eyes because when I buy something, I also make sure that I am buying something functional.
When I laid my eyes on the mismatch flats above, I instantly fell in love with it. Not only because it is cute but also because it reminded me of something very close to my heart- my dog Robin :(
Quick story: Last summer, my best friend Sam gave me a very cute black and white puppy. I was scared of taking good care of it because it was my first time owning a dog as a pet. It is also the first time that a dog lives in our house. Eventually, I had to let go of it because everyone in the house hated Robin :( I was really sad because I do not know what to do then. Luckily, my bff Shiela volunteered to take care of her. I was more than happy then but, there are times that I was left to wonder what would it be if I still have Robin with me. Well, things happen so I have to let her go.
I bought the flats from a local seller in Instagram. I know it isn't ideal to buy something like shoes online but in order to compensate the part of me that miss my dog, I bought the flats. I'm not crazy about it but I am very happy because it is comfortable and I'm still using it for months now.
TRY: PERSIAN FOOD AT PERSIAN PALATE
Chicken Shawarma Rice 55php
It is a good thing to know that these days, more and more people are opting for healthier options especially when it comes to their food choice. You may have notice how a number of ready to eat and healthy juicing services are offered all over the internet. I'm not so sure about some of them especially its real benefits but I wouldn't share my opinion about them as I haven't tried any of them.
For me, being healthy doesn't need to be expensive. With proper budgeting, you can always eat the desired food of your choice without compromising your health. I am proud to say that I am a fairly good cook. seriously, there are even times where I can cook better meals than my Mom. haha I can actually cook but sometimes, time doesn't allow.
When I started my previous job at a very early schedule, I couldn't cook anything to bring as my lunch. Luckily, there is Persian Palate located near at my working place. At first I thought they are selling expensive foods, but to my surprise they are selling something that are very affordable. Not to mention that their meals are very healthy. The reason why? they do not use Vetsin ( monosodium glutamate) in any of their foods.
When you visit their place, you will be amaze by the awards and recognitions that are given to the restaurant. A number of news clippings about food and health are also seen all over the place. Moreover, the Persian vibe of the place is really relaxing. Feeling mo nasa Persia ka while you are eating lol I am very pleased by how Persian Palate serve delicious foods that are both affordable and healthy.
P.S I only ate my lunch from them. For my lunch I always order their Chicken Shawarma Rice with or sometimes without egg. It is very satisfying unlike the chicken fillets on the popular fast food chains whose size are almost the same as a match box. :)
Currently, Persian Palate has three branches in Cebu City. They are located in Mango Square Mall, Ayala Center and Robinson's Place. I hope they will open more branches soon. The public needs the food that they offer.
And that's all for the fourth post of my Eat Buy Try section. Let me know what you think on the comment section below. Should I continue this Saab inspired section? haha lemme know :D
Thank you so much for reading!
