Even with something as simple as coffee, we patronize foreign flavors and franchises. In a country where Starbucks is mainstream and Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is the alternative, it’s not very often do you find a local, Filipino-themed cafe like Serye.
They have a branch at Santana Grove, one of my favorite hangouts in the South, and it’s become one of those restaurants that I go back to time and again. My family was there just last week for a simple Filipino lunch.

Too bad, I didn’t order coffee during my last visit. The Serye coffeeshop deserves another post all on its own. They’re famous for their siphon-brewed coffee that’s freshly prepared each time you order. The cafe has a menu of traditional Filipino drinks that you don’t see in a lot of coffeeshops like the salabat, kapeng barako, tanglad tea, pito-pito, tsokolate as well as a wide array of classic coffee drinks.
With its homey couches, classy interior, good service, and local food, Serye is a coffeeshop and restaurant that you’ll surely appreciate.

- If I were to pick one thing I miss most about trying to eat low carb, it’s pasta. This is why on really bad days, I gorge on instant noodles. 😨 For shame. Anyway, when I found out about @7grainspantry’s Protein Pasta which are made from two ingredients- edamame and water, I was sold. High on protein and fiber, this is the ultimate carb substitute. #happyhealthyawesome #BTMcooks #BTMrecommends #edamamepasta #proteinpasta - August 25, 2017
- Those tiny grain like things sprinkled on top of this chia pudding is @manitobaharvest’s Hemp Hearts. Rich in two essential fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6, hemp seeds are really good for health. Kinda reminds me of pine nuts in both taste and texture. #hempseeds #dailychia #chiapudding - August 24, 2017
