Third wave coffee shops are all over the Metro; there are the legit ones and some – just trying to be like one. But don’t worry, Scarsdale, located in the heart of Kapitoloyo surely is an Artisanal coffee shop. From the interior and design to their food selections, this place truly serves unique and tasteful dishes. Their coffees are also more affordable compared to commercialized coffee shops.
I’ve only been here twice, and for my second visit, we ordered donuts and coffee (the best combination). The Elvis (PHP 55) is a rich sweet-salty caramel filled doughnut, dipped in dark tasting chocolate and topped with slices of banana. I like this because the combination of flavours is really good. I paired my Elvis with medium Iced Café Mocha (PHP 109), just added a little bit of sugar ‘cause I like my coffee with a hint of sweetness. J ordered the Best Chocolate Donut in Town (PHP 65), a soft holed-donut dipped in dark tasting chocolate and topped with chocolate bits. This is their best seller; and I must say I’ve never tasted any donut like this before! He paired this with medium Iced Café Latte (PHP 99).
Also, we got a chance to avail their promo which is 20% off on all SNR card holders if your bill reaches PHP 300. Well, that’s a good deal for me!
So the next time you’re craving for some donuts or just want to have your coffee fix, try to drop by at Scarsdale and try to hang out at what I call the hipster coffee shop.
