So, we went here:
..this is where every girl becomes a princess.
Cafe Tiala is a princess-themed cafe located at the 2nd flr of The Forum building. To make it easier for you, The forum is the building at the left hand side of the Cebu Grand Convention building along Archbishop Reyes ave. They open at 10AM until midnight.
I don’t always have good experiences with cafes and I always think of their products as overpriced nonsense. So imagine my surprised when I actually enjoyed the 2hrs I stayed at Cafe Tiala.
To be honest, I love the whole set up. The little rooms, the little tables, the stuffed animals and lighting. I just love everything. I can take photos complete with props while filling my stomach and chilling with my friend. Win-win.
As usual, I became the annoying customer who must take photos of almost every corner of the place. But since it was still early and there was no other customer yet, my friend and I enjoyed taking most of the stuffed animals, take as many pictures as we want and borrow all the props we could get. It was fun!
Java Chip Frappucino is delicioso! You must try it!
We had their Java Chip Frap which was really delicious. We were told it is a bestseller. And we also had this…which I can’t remember the name of vut was really delicious.
Uhm…for the life of me I cannot remember what this is but it was delicious!
And of course, being the monkey-with-a-camera-who-desperately-wants-to-be-a-photographer, I diligently practice my “craft” every chance I get. So…
You can’t be a princess without a tiara. Right?
I don’t like yellow but this one is cute.
Props aside, i love the place for its quaint, wonderland-like quality. It’s like being a child again, surrounded by toys and holding your make-believe tea party. Only this time, you can make it real complete with tiara and your own little tea room.
Although, I could do with a more relaxing type of music. I mean, I know the concept is Korean but I just don’t think K-pop is the best choice of music. The music is a bit off and kind ofcontradict the whole ambience of the place. That’s just me of course. If the rest of the clientele is good with it, k-pop it is. Also, the costumes and the props need cleaning. Music aside, the place is great.
The customer service is good. The ambience is great. The food is awesome. Will I go back? Most probably. Do I recommend it to anyone who is interested in visiting Cebu city? If you don’t mind the color pink, then yes! I do recommend the place. If you’re tired of going to starbucks or any usual cafe you go to, I recommend you try Cafe Tiala.
Cafe Tiala is also in Facebook. Check it out.
Next stop…Cafe Caw!
