It’s no secret that Saab Magalona-Bacarro is a bookworm and a self-confessed geek (remember her comic book-inspired wedding?). So naturally, when her latest business venture turned out to be a café-slash-library, we must admit that we kinda saw it coming. And while “surprised” may not exactly be the word to describe our feels, ~*excited*~ definitely is!

Below, take a peek inside Cup Fiction.

Nestled along Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City is a quaint café serving all-day breakfast, artisanal coffee, locally crafted beers, and big fat giant cookies (we don’t know about you, but this part totally got us all ears).

Speaking of which, millennials wouldn’t want to pass this up, because you'd love every nook and cranny to be on your Instagram, too. It's a nice excuse to bring the whole crew together just to chill, catch up, and, well, take lots of photos.

But here's the best part: the place is open until midnight! So if you're looking for a spot either to work or play, Cup Fiction can give you the best of both worlds.
