Craft Coffee Revolution’s newest branch is now in West Avenue, QC! I actually heard from their main branch in Broadway a while back (which is also in Quezon City but is a ways off) that they’ll be opening a new branch soon in West Ave. After hearing from my sister that yes, they are indeed open now, I booked my most available Saturday with a friend to check the place out.
CRAFT COFFEE REVOLUTION (West Avenue branch)
103 West Ave, Project 7, Quezon City, Metro Manila
Four things I’ve found out in my first thirty minutes inside:
- It’s the biggest branch they’ve opened so far,
- The cafe operates on a 24-hour schedule except of Sunday nights, when they have to do maintenance,
- Cyclists can use the outside rails to park their bikes, so it makes for a good makeshift bike spot (and the guard is pretty nice about it too), and
- Their frozen brazo is consistently good, and this time I have pictures of it!
A 24-hour third-wave coffee shop this big??? Consider me a regular visitor! And the abundance of sitting room and electrical outlets make it a very attractive place for students to study the night away. And of course, all while sipping our favorite signature blends. 🙂
Given that it’s right next to a newly-built condominium’s lobby (West Avenue Suites), they’ll be sure to have a steady stream of customers from both inside and outside the building. And given that I myself live nearby compared to their main Broadway branch, looks like I’ll be frequenting this place from now on.
Ordering a plate of pasta, a cup of latte and cappuccino, and a slice of frozen brazo for me and my companion, we went through each course and we loved every minute of it. I expected Craft to mess up somewhat with the pasta (as what happens with most specialized shops that try to serve food outside their comfort zone), but I actually liked their food.
And of course, their well-known frozen brazo (which I couldn’t take a picture of last time because I was too busy enjoying the cake hehe):
Overall, my experience in Craft’s newest branch turned out to be just as good as when it was back in their main branch (in short, really, really good)! If you guys are ever in the area, know that there’s a new Craft Coffee Revolution available in West Avenue, ready to serve you good food, heavenly cakes, and most importantly third-wave coffee 24/7. (Except on Sunday nights(?) because they do maintenance as they should)
Happy Hunting! 🙂
