The owners are so kind they let me taste their banana waffle for free during the blog conference.  It was good. The bananas are real and not the powdered banana.  But I am looking forward on trying their bestsellers next time around.

This taste like 7-11's hot dog sandwich. It was good. Please offer rice meals for us Filipinos in the future.

The author together with Mr. Panda. You see, the various nooks and corners of the cafe' are very ideal for an instagramable selfie.

Verdict: 4 stars ****

The coffee is average. The prices are affordable. The service is friendly. An interesting place to have a cup of coffee.


The next time you find yourself bored and without a date try to drop by Zoo Coffee and enjoy its food and the atmosphere it has to offer. I think the zoo like environment of the coffee shop will help you educate your children about loving other God's creation.
