i have heard many raves and read many blogs regarding real coffee’s muffins. so while we were in boracay, one of my to-do’s was to visit the coffee and get a hold of the famous muffins.
the shop is open from 7am – 7pm and they serve “breakfast” all day. they have omelettes, pancakes, sandwiches, shakes, tea, coffee, cookies and of course, muffin. the cafe is a little hard to find, since it was somehow “hidden” with just a small arrow on the beach pointing to it.
when we first went there, we arrived at around 6:30pm, unfortunately, the store was closed. so i was determined just to go back the next day.
after walking long stretches of sand from station 2 to station 1, hubby and i finally arrived (again) at the cafe. there were a few yuppies hanging around, having their brunch. we sat on the stools around the service station.
we ordered the calamansi muffin, banana-walnut muffin and a funky monkey shake (choco-banana).
the calamansi muffin was indeed unique. there was the play of sweetness and sourness that was just right. the aroma that the calamansi gave was also appetizing. the whole walking thing was worth it for this muffin.
the banana-walnut muffin was also nice. it was not too sweet, you could taste the bananas and the walnuts.
they do deliveries for a charge of Php 50.00. if you want to take home these muffins, they advise that you call a day before (i think they only bake enough for the store per day). unfortunately, since we were leaving that day, i wasn’t able to bring some home. maybe next time we’re in bora… i would also like to taste their omelettes. ^_^
