Caffeine fixes and conversations at Coffee Prince

My friends Camille, Kim and I have not had a proper girls' day out since our Sunday get-together at Cafe Tiala months ago. After weeks of planning (yes, it took us weeks!), we finally found a date that was convenient for all of us and the rendezvous place? Coffee Prince!


Coffee Prince is another exciting addition to Cebu's growing collection of Korean-inspired cafes. The most obvious standout feature of this Korean coffee shop is that it is an entire house painted in white and blue and vibrant sunflowers. You can't miss it when you drive along Osmena Boulevard.

Coffee Prince opened some time in August 2014. It partly owes its popularity to a Korean television drama that shares its name. Although I have not seen the drama series, I could definitely see why the eponymous coffee shop is a such a hit here in Cebu. The place is not only warm and inviting, it is pretty and filled with cutesy decors, from life-size plush toys to love locks.



It is also very spacious. With two floors, the place can accommodate more people than the usual coffee shop.


My girl friends and I met at Coffee Prince for brunch. Aside from the ambiance, I fell in love with the roomy interiors.


I found the spaciousness of the place a really good thing because most of the Korean coffee shops I've visited tend to be small and packed -- with people and things -- and this makes it difficult to move around!


In between much-needed catching up, we ordered our food and drinks. I had their bestselling Luther Burger, Camille had their Cream Pasta while Kim enjoyed a Bulgogi Panini.

 The Luther Burger, P190

I didn't really have a good look at the Luther Burger when I ordered it so it was only after I had a bite that I realized that it wasn't an ordinary burger. Instead of the usual burger buns, the meat and cheese were sandwiched between a halved Krispy Kreme honey glazed doughnut! It was good but oh so very sinful. I'd recommend it if you can handle the guilt ;)

Bulgogi Panini, P180

For our drinks, we had mango smoothie, banana and chocolate smoothie and a caramel macchiato. Can you guess which drink belongs to who?

Our decision to meet up and have brunch at Coffee Prince Cebu was certainly a good idea. There are a lot of Korean-inspired coffee shops in Cebu but Coffee Prince is something I'd personally recommend because of the relaxing atmosphere, spaciousness, the welcoming staff and, yes, the food.
