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.

This cozy food hub has a diverse menu, offering IG-worthy milkshakes with mouth-watering fries and s’mores.
In addition, they also call it a crib for a reason as Amo Yamie’s seats aren’t the usual seats you’ll see in any restaurant. Two levels of cozy cribs are where they accommodate their customers, truly giving them privacy for whenever they need to hustle through the last few chapters of their thesis.

With the vintage vibe, the swing and the cute pastel shelves, Vanilla Cupcake Bakery gives off a colorful homey aura to everyone who visits.
