Santiago: Dessert and Coffee

On one of our date nights we decided to get dessert and coffee at the newly opened Santiago in Katipunan Extension.

What drew me in?
Honestly, the signage. Haha It said Santiago: Kain, Kape, Kwento (Santiago: Food, Coffee and Conversation) What can I say, Im a straightforward kind of girl who loves me some coffee.


The Place
When you come in it sort of looks like a bakery then transitions into a family restaurant kind of set up. It has a homey feel that reminds me of a country restaurant.

Dessert and Coffee
They served a Batangas brew, which I liked. Strong flavors with sweet delights.

We ordered two pieces of cake, one mango and one chocolate. The mango was so so, we didn’t finish that slice. The champorado inspired chocolate cake piqued our interest.

It was good, tasted like the traditional chocolate cake no one can hate. But I was not sure what was so champorado-ey about it.

The Food
The serve family style Filipino fare judging from their menu. We will have to go back since we just sampled their desserts.

The Verdict
Yes, going back seems feasible. I did love the coffee and we want to try the food which the owner talked passionately about. Bonus fact the place is owned by the same people as Inengs Barbecue, so I am sure the grilled items would be yummy. πŸ™‚
