Coated in white and blue stripes facade, Cafe Jasmine’s door is wide open to have your caffeine fixed anytime.
Breezing the cold monsoon wind in the metropolis, everyone wants to a way to keep warm during this time. To me the best way to keep it warm is having a warm cup of tea or coffee in hand.
Luckily, finding a coffee shop in the city is easy yet looking for a specialty coffee shop is rather a challenge.
The best thing in Cebu is word spreads like wild fire especially if it is really good. I believe Cebuano has this high standard to things before he could be convinced it is worthy every penny like Cafe Jasmine.
Caffeine fixed at Cafe Jasmin
Cebuanos fascinated to coffees too aside from its crispy lechon. Booming like mushrooms, cafes sprouted out all over the metropolis. Along the bustling street of Panagdait in Mabolo inside e-Zone Center, there is one specialty coffee named Cafe Jasmin.
This humble cafe is a two-story cafe. I tag along with fellow Cebu Bloggers Society bloggers to check out this cafe. Gladly greeting us warmly is no other than the cheerful man of the house Mr. Ran Vitanova. Wide smiles from its barista, felt me at home instantly.
When they handed us the menu, they offering the classic coffee choices from Americano, Latte, Flat White and among others available in both hot and cold. They also have a good selection of blended beverages. It’s only that their beans are sourced from all the coffee producing countries in the world directly. Interestingly, they also educate its customer in knowing their coffee. Get your caffeine fix plus get educated its like hitting two birds with a stone, cool!
Apart from beverages Cafe Jasmin also serves delectable meals to pair your coffee. Sandwiches, chicken penne carbonara, chicken curry and baked lasagna are available too.My favorite among it is the triple chocolate brownie, it much chewy, decant and sweet ( well, I’m a sweet-tooth, my weakness.) If you are more of a tea lover, find your cup of tea in their house tea options. All are priced fairly enough so budget wise it’s within the range
