Coffee X Pasta X Pastries : The Coffee Pod Cafe

Aside from vanilla and strawberry, one of my favorite is coffee.

Yes I know, it’s bitter. Let’s be honest, the comfort you can get from it replaces the bitter taste into something new, refreshing and rejuvenating.

There were quiet a number of coffee shops in the city of Naga, some of them had already closed and this newly opened cafe takes the risks. The owner, Ms. Shai is very young and talented in the art of cooking even though she didn’t have the formal education on culinary. She is very hands-on with her business and is quiet busy in the kitchen. Yes, she prepares every order with care, passion and finesse to assure that the cafe gives only the best to its costumers.

The Coffee Pod Cafe opened last March 15, 2015. Its pastel colored features from the outside invites goers to take a sneak, a sip and enjoy the rest of their stay that will surely make you come back for more.

As what this signs says, “Caffeine Awaits”…

Once you enter the place, streaks of light colors relaxes your body and mind, a lot of pastel, and a lot of artworks.

A mural on the other side of the shop was huge and cute at the same time, the artist got a lot of time and skills to put this up.

The place and food complimented each other. Ambiance is great and the food…one of the best I’ve ever tasted.

One good thing about their pasta is, each variety has its own distinct flavor and that should how it goes. The taste is bold and unique unlike any other, the herbs and fresh ingredients lingers the palate and not too over powering. You can never go wrong if you’re unfamiliar with the menu because everything is worth trying for and will give you satisfaction.

Here are some of the pasta dishes from the coffee pod.
