Coffee is a part of my system. As I was searching for new coffee shops in our area. Since the nearest known coffee shops like Gloria Jeans, Starbucks, Figaro, Seattle’s best, Coffee bean & tea leaf is less than an hour travel from my place. I’m referring to Alabang. And If you’re driving, you’ll save 30 minutes due to the fact that you will be obliged to take the short cut via the express way. Still, it is not that near when the craving got into me.

As Jen and I were searching for it in the internet (she automatically became my coffee buddy too). We became proud to give verdicts on all those that we visited. We aren’t experts, however, comparing the taste of this from that allows us to appreciate that this or that is better than the other. We establish our favorites too. Those that are worth coming back since we opted to always try what is new.

It became a habit to unravel countless food spots in our country, as there too many. One evening, she came across “Death by chocolate”, a coffee variant of a certain coffee shop which happens to be located in San Pedro Laguna. Seeing its’ photo, it was like a form of a very effective advertising campaign that whoever will see it will definitely find it to try it for real.

So one weekend we opted to check it out and it was a funny thing when we asked the barker (dispatcher) of that village if how can we get to “Te Amo Cafe”. Little did we know that it is just a stone throw away from the national highway. It was hilarious. We thought we still need to make another ride while it’s just walking distance from the highway. We can’t stop laughing while the barker used his hand to point us the direction.

I never thought that it is just a very small cafe, they only extended their capacity to sit guests by providing some tables Al fresco.

Their place is very strategic, very easy to find.

I had my caramel latte.

Mine is simple..

Though I like it as well.

Without too much on it.

We just had nachos since most of their items in the menu are rice base. The reason behind this is that most of their customers are students.

nachos
It was good. The tortillas are lightly flavored. The cheese sauce is rich and creamy. And there are lots of tomatoes too.
utensils dish
I loved this dish where they placed our utensils..
quesadillas
Their Quesadillas deserve a second one..

Although they have pastries too.

snacks
Not too much and not too few choices..
pancake te amo
Like they have pancakes too! =) For our breakfast club..(–,) Courtesy of: https://www.facebook.com/TeAmoCafe.SPL/photos_stream

Relaxed mode..

It was such a good find. Just 10 minutes away from home. And we were served by very nice fellows who are very friendly, they are with smiles when they talk, very courteous in assisting all through out our stay there. They know their best sellers as well and are good in talking sales.

wifi
And free WIFI..

What else can you ask? =)

jen and me
Coffee addicts!

Isn’t it so tempting?

This particular whim usually happens on weekends when everything else is lighter. There are a lot of issues on my coffee consumption but this is like combating a paradox. Why let them disrupt this ritual? To each his own.

It is good to know too, that cafes offering artisanal coffees recently proliferate in our town, I must say, I spotted another on my way home a few days ago.

Te Amo Cafe & Restaurant is located at:

# 10 Maharlika drive United San Pedro Subdivision, 4023 San Pedro, Laguna. You can contact them at: 887 4292.

-An only daughter. A mother of an 18 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! Though, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow, blue as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food as well, along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. As I used to write even when I was a teenager, and I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost my father a year before and I guess in one way or another, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son and mother, as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is so negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for them, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
