I spent one of my holidays going to Cubao late in the afternoon to take a look at a cafe named Hustle Cafe. I had a first glace of it in Ms. Tricia Gosingtian’s Instagram account.
It was already late when we arrived, and I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to take good shots at night since I was after natural light. However, thanks to my image-editing skills, I was able to “revive” my pictures. Below are pictures taken at around six or seven in the evening. Hustle Cafe is really stunning at night, isn’t it?
There are jeeps in the east going to Cubao that will drop you at Ali Mall. At Ali Mall, walk a bit and look for 10th street. Do not ride the tricycles. Hustle Cafe is just a walk away. Don’t worry, there are house numbers to guide you.
Since it was my first time going here, I was surprised with two things:
- I didn’t expect it to be small, but amid that, the spaces are wisely used. There’s the kitchen, two tables for the guests, and a smoking area.
- It was an outdoor cafe. “Aircontinuous” kumbaga. But there was a large ceiling fan that kept us cool.
It’s a garden-inspired cafe where walls were painted with plants, giving you Rio feels.
I wasn’t able to check their comfort room, but they didn’t have outlets.
I was disappointed that their rice meals weren’t available that time, so we were only able to order their Gochujang Sesame chicken poppers (Php 140.00) and bought rice somewhere else. I had to rate that an 8.5/10.
Of course, I ordered their regular cookies and cream frappe (Php 140.00). An instant 8/10.
