Cozy night at Cafe I’m Here

There are nights where Paul and I just want to ditch Friday chill nights with friends and just be lazy pandas. So one rainy Friday night, Paul picked me up at work to bring me to this chill-est cafe we’ve ever been to watch the rain and just talk.

HOW TO GET THERE:

Cafe I’m Here is located at Third Floor, CTTM Square, Tomas Morato, Quezon City (CenterStage’s previous location along Boy Scout Circle)

by commute: ride a Proj 2-3 via Tomas Morato jeepney or ride a tricycle beside Mcdonalds EDSA-Quezon Ave.

by driving: We entered South Triangle by EDSA-Quezon Ave Panay Avenue. Turned left to Timog Avenue until we reached the rotonda.

The quietness of the place actually depends on the ones on the 2nd level. It was quiet first until a big group arrived and play card games. So I can’t decide if its a good place to study.

THE PLACE

I was in college when Korean cafes were brought here in the Philippines. I can still remember how famous Cafe Noriter and Cafe de Seoul in Taft back then. Who wouldn’t want to try a very cute and comfortable cafe – with their crib-like interiors and post-its everywhere?

Cafe I’m Here is not much of a difference. It has a two-storey wooden cubicles for dates, small and big barkadas, a tent, and study tables for solo and groups. Inside these cubicles are a small round table, bean chairs and personal post-its from the previous customers. It is overlooking the Boy Scout Circle giving us a home-y feeling with the rain and thunders. And oh, they have outlets in each cubicle too!

The cubicles in the first level are separated by cute bead curtains. Most of the big groups are in the second level. Also, you cannot enter your footwear inside which is nice because I have this habit of lying everywhere. (haha!) Atleast I knew that it’s clean.

THE FOOD

Mostly of their food are desserts and frappes. They don’t have rice meals but they offer breads. I ordered the Green Tea Frappe and Paul had the Javachip Mocha (both P180) and we shared on the red velvet cake (P160). Their foods are as pricey as Starbucks so Paul and I agreed that they are overpriced given that we still prefer Starbucks in terms of foods. But their place is good and cozier so we ain’t complaining.

I forget to bring my Ipad for some movies so we ended up playing & talking a lot.

They provide slippers you can use and shoe racks for your shoes.

A lot of these around.

The best thing about Cafe I’m Here is the ambiance. Paul and I work in Quezon City and both are homes are 2 hours (3-4hrs if Manila traffic in unforgiving) away from our offices giving us no chance to just camp out in a sofa for a movie and ice cream in a lazy Friday.  So with Cafe I’m Here’s cozy private cubicles, we can already watched all our downloaded movies without looking weird or homeless (haha!). We will sure come back.

Aaaah! I’ve been meaning to go here! But EDSA traffic is the worst, especially the North bound lane. I wish I could squeeze this in my busy weekend sched. Hahaha. Can you stay there as long as you want? 🙂

Looks so cute! It reminds me of Noriter. Haha It’s far from where I live but I might try this one out next week. 🙂

Seems like a nice place to have that long chitchat with friends or even finish that book. An alone time is most likely very much bagay here. Love the cafe’s name. And the ambiance as well.

Love the ambiance of this place. The wooden cubicles are great. I love special coffees. I totally love frappes. Your pictures look great. Would love to hang out at this place.

Yeah, I agree. It’s the ambience more than the items on the menu for me. The offerings look pretty basic, but it is a place for you to be if you want to have some chill out time. I am curious. How was the internet connection and what time do they close?

More and more of these places are popping up and I think it’s a good sign of promoting a healthy balance in work and relaxation. It seems overpriced to me to especially the cake. Yet you are paying for the comfort, coziness and ambiance. It looks worth it to shell out some money for that.

    We’re sharing the same opinion. haha! The food is almost as the same price as Starbucks’ given that I love SB’s frappes and cakes more than theirs. But given the place, I really don’t mind. 🙂

We have cafes like that in Pampanga. 🙂 cafes with different themes, where you can just chill. They’re all almost the same. I think it goes down to the food, and the ambience. I’d still love to try it here if I had the chance. 😀 nice photos by the way. 🙂
