Remember all the buzz about McCafé when it opened mid 2000s? All of a sudden, McDonald's is a lot classier and attractive to caffeine addicts. Price-wise, it is close to how the famous siren charges for her cup of joe. But the popularity of McCafé didn't last long as it didn't offer one thing the siren is known for... ambiance. Fast forward to present, McCafé made a comeback and this time, it made sure to give what caffeine lovers want.
Located at the newly constructed Maybank Performing Arts Theater in BGC, McCafé is positioned to be a premium shop that offers coffee, a handful of pastries and an area suitable for meetings, intense study sessions and web surfing (thanks to their reliable internet connection).
I decided to swing by before attending an event nearby and went with Iced Latte (PHP125, small | PHP135, large). I got an electronic number after paying for my coffee and I waited for about 5 minutes before the never-fails-to-surprise-me gadget buzzed.
Taste-wise, it was your usual iced latte. It was milkier than I wanted it to be but it was fine. I'll stick with the good ol cappuccino next time.
But it's nice to know that there's a (sort of) new place I could have as my office.
McCafé is located at Maybank Performing Arts Theater, 26th Street, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.
