Running on Caffeine and Anxiety: Where to Get Your Daily Coffee in Manila

Coffee. Yes, it’s good for you. Let’s talk about it.

-a reason to get up in the morning
-can help improve energy levels
-caffeine can aid in speeding up metabolism
-makes you happier

In light of all the unfortunate events happening all over the world, we try our best to keep on going– and getting coffee helps me keep my cool (i know caffeine causes anxiety but if I don’t get coffee it will just give me more anxiety so…)

In moderation, we must allow ourselves to enjoy the heavenly gift that is known as COFFEE (coffee word count so far: 5)

Here’s where you can order and have it delivered to your doorstep:

Pedal Cafe: @pedalcafeph

sof’s reco: Spanish Latte

This is my go-to cafe for home deliveries 💛. So far, I’ve ordered from them thrice already and I love that their team is friendly and kind.
Default orders: Miss Saigon, regular Latte, and Spanish Latte

Yardstick Coffee: @yardstickcoffee

sof’s reco: Cold Naughty Latte alt Oatly! Oat Milk

I’ve been looking for 🥛 oat milk in Manila for so long, and I’m so happy that Yardstick has the option to add this instead of regular milk.

Oat Milk is a plant-based milk alternative– so if you brew your own coffee at home and you’re looking for something new to add, hope you can give this a try. Order the 1L Oatly! here: Yardstick Coffee online shop

Meticulous by Jess & Pat’s: @meticulousbyjessxpats

sof’s reco: Americano

A close werk-friend of mine got me a trio coffee as a gift, and I honestly loved the selections. She got me the Americano, Classic Latte, and the Salted Caramel. Since I consume so much sugar, the Americano was something that I enjoyed despite being a lowkey wake up call that YES- i should cut back on my sugar intake. 🍬

Cole&Co. Specialty Coffee: @colespecialtycoffee

sof’s reco: Vanilla Latte

Aside from the coffee, I’m a fan of how they organize their deliveries of the day per batches 📋 (head over to their ‘How to Order’ story highlight for more info, and get your fix.)

Where to order next?

The list could go on and on, tbh. But here are other options to try out:

CAFE\SEVENTYSIX @cafeseventysix

cant’t wait to try: Caramel Latte

The Curator Coffee & Cocktails @thecurator_

can’t wait to try: Horchata

flō coffee  @flocoffeeph

can’t wait to try: WHT– concentrate + milk + sugar

Daily Dose MNL @yourdailycoffeedose

can’t wait to try: Chai Latte


can’t wait to try: Cold Brew Barako

If you know me, you’d know that coffee is important to my daily routine 🙂

I hope this list helped you discover Manila cafes, but if you knew about them already, consider this a sign to support these businesses and treat yourself, your family, and even order to surprise a friend.

In these trying times, I say drink coffee in moderation, donate to meaningful organizations, stay updated, recognize everything that matters to you and

always keep your sunny side up!
