People visit coffee shops to catch up with some friends, read a book, or write an article while sipping their favorite drink or eating their favorite slice of cake. Whatever your reason is, here are 11 coffee shops in Cebu that you should try:

There are 16 branches of Bo’s Coffee in Cebu. You’ll find them in malls, hotels, and business centers. Bo’s Sagada pour over is one of the best.

If you like a cold coffee drink, you’ll enjoy their iced mocha too. And should you go hungry, order a carbonara. It tastes really good.

Bo’s can get pretty crowded in malls especially during the weekend. If you want to avoid the crowd, visit the Raintree Mall branch. The place is quiet and peaceful even on the weekend.

Cafe Caw promotes happiness with their decorated walls. It’s a cute coffee shop that offers food, coffee, milkshakes, and other stuff like bracelets and notebooks.They’re open until 11 p.m. Manila time. You can get unlimited coffee here for about 3 USD.

3. APlus Coffee n' Dessert House



They’re newly opened and used to be Coffee Prince. The cafe is spacious enough to fit a group of about 50 people. And they have a big smoking area outside the cafe.

You’ll find some bookshelves at APlus with only a few books. Try their Orange Monster drink; it’s quite good. But food is a little pricey here.

4. Degree 9 Coffee



I like Degree 9’s interior and their baked macaroni is really good. It only costs about 1 USD. The mint chocolate frappuccino is also a winner. The coffee shop’s WiFi connection is not that strong though; not really recommended for people who visit coffee shops to work remotely.

Starbucks is one of the most popular coffee shops in Cebu. There’s a Starbucks on almost every corner. Most people visit this cafe, so it can get pretty crowded and noisy especially on weekends. If you really need your Starbucks drink, visit them during the weekdays when there aren’t too many people.

6. Crate Cafe



“A coffee shop with a view,” Crate Cafe is located up in the mountains. If you don’t own a car, pay a bicycle driver 1 USD to take you to Crate Cafe and another 1 USD to take you back to the city. This cafe is really small and they only have a few tables outside.

But the view is really beautiful. You can get a good view of the city from this cafe. They don’t accept reservations, so if you want the place for yourself, visit them early in the day. Otherwise, you won’t get a table for yourself. As I’ve said, they only have a few tables here.

8. Yolk Coffee



Yolk Coffee is located in a quite neighborhood in Mabolo, Cebu. It’s a cozy shop and the staff is polite. They also offer the best breakfast meals. The chorizo and eggs are a favorite and they open early, about 7 a.m. They’re just closed on Mondays.

If you’re into art then you will love Bintana Coffee House. They opened just last year and the cafe is already making a name in the industry. They have affordable prices; in fact, you can get a full meal for about 2 to 4 USD.

Coffee is only about 2 USD. Do you want a quiet afternoon with your coffee and book? Bintana is your place to go.

Coffee Bean’s headquarters is in Los Angeles, but they have many branches in Cebu. The cafe not only offers coffee but also tea. You should try their matcha green tea and white chocolate dream latte. You’d come back for more.

Coffee or tea?

Which drink is better for you? While tea is healthy, caffeine gives you energy. Some people need it to start their day.

Reading a good book while sipping your coffee wouldn’t hurt too. And a good reading environment is essential to better absorb what you are reading; that’s where these coffee shops come in. Come visit!
