The quarantine period has given us coffee lovers a whole new list of cafes to visit and more unique drinks to try. If you're ever in Makati City and you find yourself needing a caffeine fix, drop by Papakape.
Papakape is a small cafe founded on the phrase "papa-kape ako" ("I'll make you coffee" or "I'll serve you coffee"). The cafe looks like a tiny glass house, it's so ~aesthetic~. In the morning, it gets a lot of natural light and at night, it's illuminated by fluorescent lights. And what's special about Papakape are their unique drinks. Their signature beverages combine coffee and tea with ginger!
They have the Iced Coco Latte (P120), a sweet, milky, and ginger-infused coffee that's made with coco milk, ginger, and topped with panucha toffee. They also offer the Kape Gingerccino (P90), which is a ginger-infused coffee topped with coco froth and cinnamon. If you love mocha, try the Choco Mochaluya (P90) which is ginger-infused coffee made with homemade chocolate milk.
Do you love drinking salabat even if you're not feeling sick? Check out the Blue Ginger Salabat (P70), a tea with blue pea flowers, lemon, and honey, and the Fruity Iced Salabat (P120) which is iced oolong-ginger tea mixed with slices of passion fruit, apple, orange, and pineapple.
Papakape is located at 5641 Ampere Street, Palanan, Makati City. (Editor's note: the cafe has limited outdoor seating and street parking is available.) For more information, follow Papakape on Facebook.
