The City of Dasmarinas at the heart of Cavite is indeed booming with innovations after innovations of coffee shops and restaurants. These kinds of start-ups are the business trends nowadays. No wonder why entrepreneurs from all over the world choose to start their own in the Philippines: Filipinos love to eat – And, of course, – Filipinos welcome any kind of innovations especially when Filipino taste is combined with other international taste!
Two courageous beauty-and-brains Taiwanese darlings dared to start their own in the Philippines!
Pipi and I met online. She just added me on the page of their coffee shop which she actually runs herself! – Coffee Plus
(Try to send them a heartwarming message or inquiry about their business and she’ll surely reply to you! ♥)
They were posting pieces of the progress of their shop from scratch (cement and hollow blocks) to a small but comfy place that it is right now. Something was getting my attention every time they’re posting online and I took one courageous step to ask them if they could tell me about their business and how they started. Without any hesitations, they agreed!
Hey, start-ups are always great and as long as it’s run by passion and perseverance, I believe it will succeed!
This was my first visit on their shop. It’s a small place from the outside – but what they did with the interior is astonishing! I was able to meet Connie, Pipi’s business partner, and she’s as bubbly and welcoming as Pipi (even when I am only able to talk to her online 😉 ) We met at a very time-constraint event but we were able to talk about almost all of there is to talk about heh, heh!
Their flavors feature a mix of Taiwanese flavor and Filipino Flavor – they also feature Korean-inspired flavors since Filipinos are into it nowadays. (Talk about K-drama and K-pop invasion!) This is Hazelnut Frappe, and the other one is Citrus Frappe (I think, can’t remember the name but it’s a perfect combination of citrus-y flavors: perfect for an everyday drink here in this tropical island of the Philippines ). I was able to take a bite of their yummy Chocolate and Korean Honey Apple Tea waffles – ordinary waffles made extraordinary with their mouthwatering flavors!
See, I told you they did an amazing job with their interior!
Prices are also very, very affordable! Their staff are also very friendly and accommodating – never imagined a small place offer so much. And it’s a start-up! 😉
They’ve got a lot more new exciting flavors you must try! I’ve been to a lot of coffee shops but their flavors actually surprised me. It’s a fresh new variety of cold drinks 😉
This is Connie, my now good friend – Thank God, we were able to get a two-fie with the limited time we got 😉 Hope to be with you and Pipi soon!
To Pipi and Connie, my new friends from NY, thank you for letting me be part of your success 🙂 I love to see your business grow as time goes by. My Cafe Plus experience was great and I am definitely coming back for more of it!
Visit Cafe Plus! It will be a worthwhile trip! ♥
