Whenever we think of a cafe or a hip resto, the first image that would probably come to mind are brick walls, gorgeous wood tables, and semi-dim lighting. Moreover, most of them would probably have industrial-themed interiors as it gives a chill ambiance to its customers.

However, if you’re looking for a way to add more color on the days you’re hustling on your paper or brighten up your lunch with friends, here are cute cafes in Metro Manila that you can check out!

6. The Bunny Baker

When you first enter the restaurant, the first thing you’ll probably notice is the unique shape of its chairs. True to its name, they’re shaped like bunny ears! With pink walls and quirky cakes displayed all over the place, The Bunny Baker gives off a playful vibe for its customers.

But other than its quirky interior, what takes the cake (pun intended) are their pastries and latte art. The Bunny Baker’s vibrant cakes are a work of art as their designs aren’t something you’ll see just anywhere. If you’re craving coffee, Instagram-worthy latte art awaits you here.

However, The Bunny Baker’s menu doesn’t stop there. They also offer some dishes like rice meals, pasta, and burgers perfect for when you’d like a heavier meal. Likewise, you’ll find that they also offer gelattes, pancakes and cold drinks if you’re not contented with the cupcakes and cakes to satiate your sweet tooth.

Where? The Bunny Baker is located at 3rd Floor, Rustan’s Department Store, Courtyard Drive, Makati.

5. Jamie’s Cakery and Kitchen

Most people would probably associate Taytay with being the garments capital of the country. However, look hard enough and you’ll see that Taytay holds a pastel haven in its midst.

This cozy food hub has a diverse menu, offering IG-worthy milkshakes with mouth-watering fries and s’mores.
