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.

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..

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.

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.
