Sometimes, you find a little treasure when you least expect it. Just like what happened to me this week. I only went to Miniso in Gateway Mall this Wednesday to
hoard buy some pens, but after I came out of the store, I found a new little cafe hiding in one of the nooks of the mall.
I liked how the cafe was designed, even if they only occupied a small space. Again, I was not able to take a picture because I was scared the staff would find me weird. I like how their shelves were filled with pastillas flowers. Not only were they displaying their product, but it also made the place pretty.
Since I was in a hurry last Wednesday after my trip to Miniso, I only ordered their Iced Cafe Americano. The coffee is not that strong, which is to my liking since I had acid reflux that time. I’m not sure if it’s because of the number of Splenda sachet I put in my coffee, but it was a little bit sweet. Well, maybe it is anyway.
So this Saturday, I decided to come back to this coffee shop. I was supposed to go to Megamall to meet my best friend for dinner, but she bailed out. And since I have so much time to spare and not much money to spend, I decided to stop by this cafe and order the other drinks and try out their cakes.
Because I still have acid reflux, I stayed away from caffeine and ordered their Strawberry Smoothie. I also ordered the rainbow cake because it looks cute. Honestly, I ordered a cake, because the last time, their unicorn cake caught my attention.
The strawberry smoothie tasted fresh. It wasn’t too sweet as I expected it to be. It was milky yet tangy and citrusy.
The rainbow cake, however, was on the sweeter side. The cream cheese frosting tried to balance the sweetness and tanginess of the cake. I like how vivid the colors of this cake is. It wasn’t only mouthwatering, it’s an eye candy as well.
The price for the drinks and the cakes are just right. I bought my iced coffee for Php 65, while the strawberry smoothie and rainbow cake were at Php 85 and Php 135. The place is also relaxing, as it was almost at the hidden part of the mall. I think it’s only new, so there are not many people hanging out there. The interior is cute and whimsical, which also relaxes my eye.
So for those who are in Cubao area and would like to try out a new coffee shop, give SweetBlooms Cafe a visit.
