quaint shop brewing

Perhaps because we frequent this place, I keep on forgetting to write about this dainty little local coffee shop. Long before Starbucks invaded Angeles City, Beatico has been the coffee shop in Balibago. When it started, it was a tiny place with minimalistic design. Over time, it has expanded to another branch in SM Clark but that one has eventually closed along the expansion of SM. The small shop in Balibago was renovated and has surpassed the local competition with the former Coffee Outlet, Coffee Overdose and at present, still competitive with neighboring shops such as Coffee Academy and K-Cafe.

This remains to be a humble abode where one can spend a quiet night and enjoy good coffee. They also serve cocktails, beer, pastas, and sandwiches and so on. But our favorite remains to be their well-prepared tapsilog that comes with a free cup of brewed coffee or a glass of iced-tea.

If one is in the mood for loud music with a laid back crowd, he can just step out and enjoy his beverage in the veranda while listening to the live music of El-Potro show bands.

WIFI: good/free

Restroom: common

Price: more affordable than Starbucks

Staff: very nice

Serving: generous

Parking: good (unless it’s a weekend)

Verdict: will always be a loyal patron as long as it exists.
