Cafe Janealo Intramuros


I love coffee. My favorite part of the day is sipping coffee--and yes, I only drink coffee on days ending in Y. On weekends at home, it always bring me smile when I wake up at the aroma of a good coffee. And I'm sure coffee lovers like me will agree that the smell of brewed coffee is the perfect aroma on all earth. It's divine!

I can't imagine starting my day without a cup of coffee. When things get toxic and stressful at office, coffee gives me a boost. It's like having a cheer leader in my cup that after sipping it, I'm ready to get back in action. 

I was thrilled to have been invited by Miss Jane and Miss Carmela of Cafe Janealo in Intramuros to try their latest offerings. I did not think twice and immediately said yes to the invitation. And the thought that it is located in Intramuros made it more interesting. I can do a photowalk after my coffee!

Located at 398 Cabildo corner Beaterio in Intramuros, Manila, it is not hard to miss Cafe Janealo. It is located conveniently beside the Manila Cathedral. 

A lot of foreigners and students visit their place. The shop opened September last year but they are getting a good traffic already. 

Cafe Janealo is a nice reco for those who can't decide on what they want on a coffee shop. They serve a variety of drinks- hot and iced coffee, frappe, chocolate drinks, smoothies and tea. There's a small but thoughtful cake and breads menu too.

My Cafe Janealo experience began with a sip of Americano. It was a perfect partner for the bread. After the hot coffee, we also tried some of their frappe and specialty drinks. I loved the texture of the banana hazelnut frappe. It reminds me of this famous shake in Boracay. The Thai Iced Tea was enjoyable too. I think it's one of my favorites here. I liked that the Green Apple Smoothie wasn't really that sweet. Guess that's a perfect sip on a hot, summer's day. I'm really not into chocolate frappe but my friends liked it very much too- it was smooth and the choco overload was really flavorful!

And did you know that loyal customers of Cafe Janealo gets a mug which they can use whenever they drop by the place? Nice!


CAKES AND BREADS

Grab some slice of cake or bread to partner with your drink like the ensaymada or the ham & cheese or tuna turnover. Cafe Janealo's cakes are a piece of heaven on earth! We all loved the Oreo Cheesecake and the Dark Mocha Sansrival. But the real stand out among them is the Chocolate Dream Cake! Trust me when I say you should never miss this one. It was sinfully good!
