Cafe Food Crawl in BGC

Metro Manila | Dec 27 - Dec 31, 2020
Event Details

Some people just need caffeine in their system. Coffee helps people function, especially in the morning when you need an instant mood booster before doing today’s tasks. Most people turn to coffee for breakfast, while some just love going to cafes as an alternative workstation when it gets too uninspiring in the office cubicle. For yuppies who work in the urban jungle of the metro called BGC, you definitely would want to check out our list of the best cafes you can find near your workplace. Here’s a rundown of what we recommend:

Wildflour Café + Bakery

What could be a better pair for coffee than freshly-baked breads? At Wildflour Café + Bakery, you don’t only get your dose of caffeine but also, you have the freedom to try their homemade fresh breads that’s almost always sold out come nighttime. Wildflour is surely the best thing to spend mornings with to take a bite of their mouthwatering dishes. It’s a certified expat-favorite as you can see a lot of foreigners come by both in their Makati and BGC branch for brunch.

This fashionable café is perfect for all, whether you’re a Tita of Manila or just simply someone who wants a hearty breakfast before working. We recommend their Corned Beef Hand Pie for their pastries, for big breakfasts we love their Fried Chicken and Waffles. They open as early as 6 am so head over the earliest to enjoy a good meal before going straight to work.
