Instagram Wonderland: Teaspoon Café

One of our Pampanga Food Crawl stops was this adorable café that seemed to have been designed as an Instagrammers’ paradise. Every nook and cranny are screaming cute and with lifestyle bloggers with us during the food crawl, they sure went crazy with the place.
Hello, Teaspoon Café.
“I wish I dressed nicer” was the first thought that came to mind when I entered this charming place. One could score the perfect profile picture here. But aside from its picturesque space, Teaspoon Café offers savory dishes, decadent desserts and nostalgic milkshakes. 
We were greeted by two beautifully decorated tables with the perfect flat lay. One table showcased all the sweets we could sample while the other table focused more on the savory treats. 
I wasn’t able to take note of the names of each dish so I’ll just highlight the ones I sampled. 
Teaspoon Café offers a simple yet ample variety of savory dishes to satisfy the grumpy tummy.
From the savory table, I tried some of the spam and fries which were pretty straightforward. It was your usual deep fried spam and fries. 
The pasta dishes were a bit on the bland side but if I were to choose, I’d go with Creamy Pesto Linguini with Chicken Strips (PHP220) over Sausage Agliolio (PHP220, available in classic and spicy) as I love chicken breasts! 
But spicy food lovers might prefer the latter.

I had a bit of the marinated pork too and I found it okay. 
The savory dishes may have not been impressive but the desserts were! 
The red velvet cake was moist and something you’d bring home to share with your loved ones. 
I also loved the buttermilk cookies which tasted just like the ones I enjoyed when I was a child.
The store also sells cashew tarts which were pretty good. I even bought two boxes as pasalubong!
But the highlight of our visit were the blast from the past milkshakes. Each milkshake used a classic candy or sweet from the 80s and 90s. 
There are LALA, Mik-Mik, White Rabbit, Viva, and so on. I sampled ChocNut and it tasted just like it! 
Here are the other dishes or desserts served that I was not able to sample but are just too photogenic so I'll still include them in this post. 
Overall, this place is a great stop for sweets or afternoon snacks. And if you are a proud 80s or 90s kid, you’ll love its milkshakes!

Teaspoon Café is located at Unit D, T4 Building, Fil-Am Friendship Hi-Way, Cutcut, Angeles, Pampanga.
