Coffee Tea Library in Malabon City

Coffee Tea Library

The Place and Ambiance

New hangout place for coffee, tea, book and board game lovers in Malabon City! It is rare to find a place that almost have everything a person is looking for in a café. The outside looks isolated but it’s different inside, Coffee Tea Library will give you a different kind of experience: Instagram worthy designs, comfy space, inexpensive yet quality coffee, different selection of books and games, accommodating and friendly staffs, daily promos – just WOW! Great concept. 🙂 I could have stayed longer if only I’m with a friend. Haha.



The Food


Been there once so I haven’t tried everything yet. I ordered Herb Cheese Nachos for P85 and Dark Chocolate Cream-Based Ice Blended for P140. They do not have pastries by the time I went there, I would have ordered Blueberry Cheesecake (my favorite). Nachos and Chocolate drink might not be a good pair but I don’t mind, I like them both! 🙂

Here’s the list of their daily promos:



Very friendly and fun to talk to. I think they find me weird because I kept on walking and taking pictures so one of the staffs offered to take a picture of me. I did not mention that I will be using these photos for my blog. 😛 The crafts are made by them too, amazing!

DesignI’m glad to find a rare place like this. Superb!

Fire Sword Cafe: Come for the food. Stay for the games.

Fire Sword

My first time to try a board game cafe. 🙂 Came here with my friends on a Sunday night because we want to play board games and to check out the new place as well.

The Place and Ambiance


Fire Sword Cafe is not that big but could accommodate enough people to eat while enjoying the board games. 🙂 I like how they designed their tables with borders to avoid the falling of small objects and there is also an extra shelf beneath the table where we can hide the box or extra items of board games in order to have more space for the table.

A great place to bond with friends and family!



The staffs and even the owner are very accommodating and generous enough to teach us how to play King of Tokyo and Takenoko. Haha. They are very helpful in suggesting new games for us to try! I like all games that we have played: Epic Spell Wars, King of Tokyo and Takenoko.

As for the food, I only tried the Swissmiss Milk Shake and it was actually delicious. 🙂 There is no doubt that I will come back here with my friends to try the other foods and board games.

Ethan’s Cafe in Valenzuela City

Ethan’s Cafe is  just 5 minutes away from where I live and if I’m not mistaken, this is the first coffee shop that opened in our neighbor. I spent one afternoon there with my sister and nephew. The exterior design is very modern and just by seeing it for the first time made me “WOW” already.

The cafe have two floors. The first floor is small but could accommodate enough people and has a cute interior design. At the second floor are the balcony and a room that can be reserve for parties or private gatherings.

Aside from coffee and pastries, they also serve pasta and rice meals but I haven’t tried them yet. We ordered Blueberry Cheesecake, Pistachio Cake, Java Chip Frappucino, Cookies and Cream Frappucino and Iced Mocha. They use Mason Jars for cold drinks, something that I personally like about in coffee shops. 🙂

Foods: OK.

Place: OK. I like its modernism.

Staffs: Very friendly and accommodating. I even had the gut to ask one of the staffs who Ethan is. lol. Ethan is the son of the owners.

Price: Affordable.

Will definitely go back to try other foods that they offer. I bet this place will become popular soon.
