With one of my favorite branches in Makati City, Starbucks Rufino cor. Legaspi, shut for renovation, I had to find another in the area which is near the church I attend (Union Church of Manila), and the Philippine Racing Commission which I visit weekly.
Here’s Starbucks De La Rosa to the rescue!
The baristas are warm and friendly, and don’t seem to mind my taking pictures. On my second visit, they had my drink down pat (Double Grande Raspberry Mocha Frapuccino Light Blended, one Splenda).
I spent a pleasant half-hour here early Monday morning (May 19), breakfasting on a Caesar Salad. It’s one of the places that’s got good vibrations. Not too commercial, not too packed, everything still one-on-one and quite relaxing.
