Coffice is a term used for cafes that can almost be your own office, and I’m glad that I found one only a few kilometers away from home. Carpentry and Coffee appeared on my Instagram feed after I followed #cafeph, and as a cafe hunter, I was willing to visit their place and try their food.
How to Go to Carpentry and Coffee
If you’re coming from Angono and Taytay, ride a Sta. Lucia or Tropical jeepney (or if you’re from Ortigas, you have to go down at Junction first). Tell the driver to drop you off at The Garden Walk, which is in front of SM Hypermarket. Carpentry and Coffee is located on the second floor.
What to Expect at Carpentry and Coffee
Whether you’re looking for a tranquil place to work and eat or you want to discuss a remodeling project with experienced builders over a cup of coffee, Carpentry and Coffee got you covered. With clean-furnished walls, tables, and other wooden furniture, this coffice stands by their name. It is a carpentry-theme cafe, established from the owner’s love for coffee, architecture, and interior design. I love how they provided a space for a mural depicting two workers painting on wood. They also used buckets and paintbrushes to design one ledge. We were during Valentine’s day, so their interiors were filled with hearts and reds.
Aside from their friendly staff and good food, their cafe emits a peaceful, nature vibe that is perfect for tasks that require utmost focus and offers sockets where you can plug in your laptop and mobile devices. The comfort room is outside the cafe, though.
What to Eat at Carpentry and Coffee
Above are their salted caramel frappe (Php 160) and chocolate milk tea (Php 95). We also ordered their must-try spicy Angus tapa (Php 235), regular Angus tapa, fish and fries, and tuna pesto and mushroom. I wasn’t able to take note of the prices of the other dishes, but all of them were superb. I will definitely go back for their Angus tapa and fish and fries, maybe with hot coffee next time.
