Whenever I am in Luzon, I crash at my friend’s place in Baliuag, Bulacan. And since we both work from home, sometimes we feel the need to just go out and work somewhere else for a change of environment. The most obvious choice are coffee shops because 1. they have comfy chairs, 2. they almost always have wi-fi (although we always bring a portable wi-fi, it doesn’t hurt to have a back up in case the signal is weak), 3. they are more lenient to customers who stay for more than an hour, and 4. they have coffee!
We’ve always wanted to try Cafe+ so, when we had the opportunity, we took it, grabbed our laptops, and went on a 10-minute or so drive to Plaridel. The place is cute, they don’t have comfy chairs though, and they could use a bigger parking space. But if you get there early enough or on a not-so-busy part of the day, you’ll be fine. And of course, there’s always public transportation. Since it is just by the road, it is also accessible to jeepneys and buses going to and from NLEX.
The place serves brunch, coffee, and desserts. This is their cute, hand-drawn menu (click for a larger view):
The first time we went there, we ordered beignets, which was delish but we couldn’t finish it as the sandwiches were already so filling! Their sandwich orders come with a choice of a salad or fries on the side. We ordered both, and by the end of the meal, we decided the salad was a much better option (especially if you’re looking to stay away from fried food). Besides, their Asian dressing was yummy!
Their store is open from 9am-10pm. Here’s their Facebook page just in case you want more information. Enjoy!
