Headquarters Cafe & Games Katipunan- Fun Games and Coffee at HQ Manila

Headquarters Cafe and Games- the newest board game cafe in the bustling university district of Katipunan. There may be endless options for students on where to eat around the neighborhood, but this newcomer offers more than just food and drinks.

Joining the board game cafe bandwagon, Headquarters Cafe & Games gives students another reason to enjoy long breaks and coffee dates. The place exudes a happy and casual vibe, with colorful superhero paintings on the wall. 


Customers are free to use the table top games on the shelves, while enjoying their cup of coffee. The board games available are quite limited as they are still on soft opening. However, new games are set to arrive in the next coming months.

Maillard (my-yar) Specialty Coffee- Third Wave Coffee in Corinthian Gardens

I got my first taste of Maillard Specialty Coffee during the Yuletide Yummies Bazaar in Rockwell back in December 2014. That time, Maillard was just a small booth banking on its premium coffee beans, advanced coffee equipment and barista skills. It was no surprise that in just a span of 1 year, Maillard Coffee finally set up their first cafe in Corinthian Gardens Sports Complex

Strategically located beside the clubhouse's badminton court, Maillard has since become the go-to place of most people after an exhausting game of sport. It has also been a hang-out favorite of some homeowners living in the subdivision. 

To support our good friend Franz Chuongco, owner of Maillard Specialty Coffee, D and I went with our favorite couple (Sumi and J), to his humble cafe for a light dinner. (Just realized we were also with them when we first tried Maillard's booth in Rockwell).

Hillside Cafe & Juice Bar- Hearty and Healthy Dishes in Cedarhills Garden Center

For our annual Christmas party reunion, Sumi, Stacy and I decided to go for something healthy since we were already feeling the holiday pounds even before Christmas. The girls suggest we try something new and Hillside Cafe and Juice Bar was our top choice for a casual lunch and get together. The holidays have gotten so busy, that we were only able to meet up after New Year.


The place was not hard to find, but limited side street parking was available for customers. Fortunately, we immediately secured one upon arrival. The place was booked for a private event when we entered, but thankfully, our group of 5 was still accommodated. The event was a calligraphy workshop held by the cafe owner Alessandra Lanot of Life After Breakfast blog. She is also the owner of Pipino Vegetarian restaurant which I got to try in Malingap St. Quezon City and Makati. The Makati branch unfortunately closed down, but their Malingap branch is now 5 years in business.

Back to Hillside Cafe & Juice Bar, everything on their menu looked interesting. The descriptions on the menu items didn't sound so boring at all. 

We started with Hillside's Spinach and Kale Salad (P215)- a simple mix of superfood greens, walnuts and cranberries in a light balsamic vinaigrette dressing
