Read, Sip and Dine at Book & Borders Cafe

Guess what, guys?! There's a newly-opened, cozy, little nook for book slash coffee lovers and lucky you, 'cause I'm sharing it with you. This cafe puts together three of my favorite past times, reading, eating and enjoying a cup of coffee.

I was invited at the grand opening celebration of the Book and Borders Cafe, which is set to become one of the metro’s more popular hangouts.  But first, let me share something that is based on a ‪#‎brewstory‬.

Iced mocha: I think you're hot.
Hot choco: Aww you're so sweet... You're tall, dark and handsome.

Coffee, like love, is best when it's hot. So fill your cup with both... and take a moment to appreciate your steamin' hot ‪coffee‬ mate. Read, sip and dine at Book & Borders Cafe. You're welcome. :)

The café’s brand ambassadors, Karylle and Benjamin Alves, were present at the café’s grand opening last July 28, wherein we were treated to the café’s bestsellers and were given the chance to enjoy the selection of books that are available.

The two self-confessed book lovers represent what the café wants to promote; to encourage the habit of reading as well as indulging in one’s love for coffee.

Charming and inviting, Book and Borders is the latest themed café to open in Quezon City, catering to customers who have an appreciation for good books and equally good food and coffee.

Located at 281 Tomas Morato, Quezon City, Book and Borders, unlike other crowded cafes where people are more engaged in chit chat, has purposely turned their space into something that is more relaxed and quiet.

What I really love about the café is that it encourages customers to go through their extensive selection of books, and take their time to hangout or read. In fact, the café also makes book stands available for its customers, to make reading their chosen book, much easier.

Tip:  Don't forget to add your unfinished books in their bookmark box, so that you can continue reading on your next visit. You can find it at the cashier counter or simply ask any of their servers to assist you. There are also electrical sockets located below the communal table.

Complementing the nice ambiance and the library aspect of the café are delicious light fare and refreshing drinks. Hot choco, anyone?

 More sweets please...

Aside from delicious muffins, breads, cupcakes, pies, tarts, squares, doughnuts, and cakes (Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake), Book and Borders also serves more filling menu options like pasta (Truffle Mushroom Pasta, Tuyo Pasta), sandwiches (Beef Pastrami Panini), even salad and breakfast options. For drinks, there’s coffee of course, in a variety of options, as well as refreshing smoothies for hot days.

My personal favorite? Fried Tuyo with Kesong Puti Pasta! Two words. Remarkably yum! Try it. Because, tuyo. It is so Pinoy in taste and aroma with the salty goodness of dried fish which enhanced the al dente pasta in garlic herbs, topped with kesong puti and parmesan cheese. This is a tasty dish that I'll definitely try again. A glass of iced mocha is just the perfect pair.

You can also try their Truffle mushroom or Chicken Penne Pasta, but I still like the Tuyo pasta more than anything else. It's a must try. :)

Carrying the tagline, Read. Sip. Dine. Book & Borders is definitely a must-try not just for book lovers and coffee lovers but anyone who is looking for a nice place to hang out in the busy metro.
