A good friend of mine has been to this small but charming coffee place in Tagaytay City a number of times already. And with her every visit, my envy grows. Hihi. Finally, after an amazing night (which consisted of drunken conversations, Biogesic-happy mornings and endless shots) with former college orgmates, I finally got to visit this one-of-a-kind coffee shop called Java Jazz.
For its ambiance alone, I would give Java Jazz three thumbs up! Designwise, it’s not your typical coffee shop. You won’t see huge comfy couches and bean bags here. Instead, they have all sorts of dark wood furniture that give the room the country home feel. I like that they have this Japanese table-ish setting on the floor and cute corners for couples.
For big groups who don’t want to sit on the floor, they also have this (see photo above). Java Jazz is very quaint, with friendly personnel. A no-fuss coffee shop, drinks and meals are very affordable!
Their selection of coffee and chocolate drinks is pretty wide, taking their coffee shop’s size into consideration. Being a hazelnut “nut”, I had to have their Hazelnut Mocha. The cup was charming even though the heart pattern wasn’t that recognizable.
For brunch, I ordered Ham and Bacon Pancakes, which was super filling! Well, for me, that is. I like their pancake. It wasn’t that big but it was enough for a girl like me. For only Php99, that meal is a steal.
We were the only customer in Java Jazz, by the way, which somehow permitted us to abuse (no, not really) the space. Although the photos above leave the impression like we ransacked the place, we didn’t. 😀
It was nice having the place all to ourselves because we were a pretty big group. Visiting Java Jazz without having to share the space with strangers is definitely the best way to experience this place.
Now I know why so many people rave about this place. It’s not just the drinks or the food they serve that’s memorable but the complete “feeling” that you get when you’re there.
Don’t forget to sign their guestbook when you visit! 🙂
