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 you need a noodle fix, opt for soba noodles. Soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour and contain more fiber and protein than your regular noodles. It’s also high in a slew of vitamins and minerals that you won’t get from your regular noodles. #happyhealthyawesome #alternative #buckwheat #soba #japanesefood #BTMeats - June 26, 2017
- If you’re in the mood for a sweet but healthy treat, chia pudding is always a good choice. I always have a jar of pre-soaked chia ready for snacking in the fridge. Today, I added chopped up strawberries, topped it with almond flakes, and sprinkled on some Stevia and cinnamon on top. #happyhealthyawesome #chiapudding #chiaph #sweettooth - June 22, 2017
- Today’s big breakfast is a Keto-friendly BLTEA sandwich. Bacon, lettuce, tomato, and an egg in a freshly-baked almond flour bun. Believe it or not, all of it took just 15 minutes to make. Including the bun. #happyhealthyawesome #keto #highfatlowcarb #quickhealthymeals - June 22, 2017
