Korean Cafes are a big hit in the metro. With the fresh and fun twists, Korean cafe concepts have been a mainstay in Cebu’s ever growing coffee scene.I’ve been to a lot of Korean concept cafes in Cebu, each with their unique vibe and beautiful interiors, but it all boils down to the quality and taste of their coffee beverages, and the food. Most Korean cafes serve coffee concoctions that are too sweet and with no food choices other than the Korean cafe staple, honey bread.
I was lucky enough to get first dibs on Coffee Prince Cebu and got to try some of the beverages and food on the menu of the soon to open Korean cafe. Coffee Prince Cebu is inspired by the 2007 Korean hit drama “Coffee Prince.” Owners even mentioned that baristas and waiters wear the signature white polo shirt with black vest and black slim pants uniform that main character Go Eun Chan (played by Yoon Eun Hyle) dons in the series. Lots of cute stuffed toys shipped from Korea are ready to be stationed at the coffee shop the soonest the interior is done. I was also told that each cubicle will be lined up with lights that changes color and bead curtains are adorned along the cubicles. The exterior walls are painted blue with beautiful sunflowers. Sunflowers are famous in Korea. The flower even has its own festival called “Taebaek Sunflower Festival,” happening every August in Guwau Village where a wide array of colorful wildflowers and endless fields of sunflowers are in full bloom. I know you are imagining how the the cafe would resemble and excited to see on how exactly the cafe would look like when done, but don’t you worry, will soon post photos of the interiors once they are finished. 🙂
Now, some thoughts on the beverages and food I tried when I dropped by the Coffee Prince training kitchen. It was a very humid afternoon and what a perfect timing because I’ll be sampling three of the house’s best cold blends. (1) Matcha Frappe (2) Java Chip Frappe (3) Strawberry Smoothie.
The Matcha Green Tea has a well balanced green tea taste and sweetness. Topped with a cloud of cotton candy, it adds a level of sweetness to the drink. The Java Chip Frappe has a swirl of chocolate syrup and chocolate chips and with the right amount of sweetness, I can still taste the hint of coffee in the mix. Lastly, a refreshing strawberry smoothie with real strawberries. All drinks can be topped with either whipped cream or cotton candy, your choice! 🙂
The mouthwatering Coffee Prince Cebu’s Luther Burger! A quarter pound of seasoned juicy burger patty with bacon and cheese on a Krispy Kreme Glazed doughnut, sided with French fries. Yum!
Bulgogi Panini. Korean sweet bulgogi meat in a bed of mozzarella cheese, garlic and red bell peppers on grilled bread.
And Chocolate waffle! With the size almost as big as my face, this can be shared by 2-3 persons. The awesomely chocolate waffle is crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Topped with whipped cream, 2 scoops of chocolate ice cream, drizzled with chocolate and caramel syrup and Oreo cookies, Coffee Prince’s Choco Waffle is a real treat! It would be more perfect though if the waffle is a bit more buttery, but nonetheless it’s one good tasting waffle!
