Extraordinary Coffee Experience in Caffe Bene SM BF Paranaque

Every afternoon, I usually treat myself with coffee and bread. I just dip the bread in coffee and voila! It's a simple, but satisfying afternoon snack for me in years. I would buy a whole loaf of bread just for that and five pieces of 3-in-1 coffee sachets good for 1 week already. Although some people eat them during breakfast, I eat them for snacks.

But since it's payday, I would like to treat myself with the same set of snack, but a more unique and special one meaning I would like a special kind of coffee and a special kind of bread. The only problem is...  where? 

So I used my OpenSnap application on my mobile phone, canvassed a few coffee shops listed nearby and found out about Caffe Bene. I honestly got captivated by the Choco Banana Toast picture sent by one of OpenSnap's users. 

Add me when you sign up! My account name is "timeassasin"  :) 

As I opened OpenSnap, I canvassed through their labels and chose coffee shops since I want to have coffee.

I noticed they had a lot listed so I filtered it down. I clicked the "Filter" button (the orange one) and chose "Nearby" because I don't want to go too far from our residence just to have a cup of coffee.  When the filtered list came up, there I saw Caffe Bene  and I was just captivated with its pictures.

So I went to Caffe Bene in SM BF Paranaque yesterday afternoon to see what's in store for a coffee + bread lover like me. 

Note: Caffe Bene originated in Eastern Seoul, Korea and opened its first shop last April of 2008. 

Very nice and inviting facade. 

A definite eye candy for me! Those breads are humongous! 

Sandwiches and more desserts!

Korea's version of halo-halo according to their staff  :)
Note: Bingsu means iced parfait. 

So other than coffee and tea, you can also enjoy some yummy Gelato here! :) Great for kids, too. 
They also have gourmet sandwiches! Looks yummy!

I waited for about 5 minutes for my order to arrive. 

This is my table where I stayed :

Very relaxing ambiance (spacious + good music + nice interiors)
They also have a nice lounge at the back. I noticed that youngsters loved to hang out in that area more :D

My Order:

Caramel Cinnamon Honey Bread ( P175 ) + Hot White Mocha  (P160 ) = Divine Coffee Experience

Another picture of the star of my afternoon. *wink*
Note: This is big enough for sharing. 

The external part of the toast is super crunchy and then it's so soft on the inside.
The toast + the whipped cream + caramel syrup + generous amount of cinnamon = My kind of  treat.
I loved how the cinnamon balanced the sweetness of the caramel and the whipped cream combined together.
Did you know? According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, Cinnamon is used to help treat muscle spasms, vomiting, diarrhea, infections, the common cold, loss of appetite, and erectile dysfunction (ED). Cinnamon may lower blood sugar in people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, according to Diabetes UK

Before I left, I ordered the Iced Misugaru Latte (Roasted Multi-grain Based Beverage) for take out out of curiosity. It has some healthy benefits as listed on the pic below 

(P 170)

My tummy was so full so I just took a sip of it and gave it to my mom when I got home. As I tasted it, I could actually taste the brown rice and sesame seed flavors. It's perfect for health buffs. 

Thank you, John, Justin, and Clarisse for being so nice and accommodating! 

So there you have it! Thanks Caffe Bene for making my coffee time an extraordinary one! Maybe next time, I will bring my family because they just have everything for everyone like coffee for me, gelato and waffles for the kids, and a gourmet sandwich for my husband :D  They also have free WIFI so that's good enough reason to stay *evil laugh*.  Special thanks to OpenSnap for helping people like me find what where we want to eat.
