These drinks from Gourmet Farms’ The Library Café will surely get you into the Holiday Spirit

Tucked away in the quiet neighborhood of Malate is The Library Café by Gourmet Farms. The first thing you’ll notice about the café is its unusual home being housed on the ground floor of the historical Ramon Magsaysay Center along Roxas Boulevard.

In contrast to the exterior of the complex, the rustic interior with its two four-seater nooks are perfect spaces to have meaningful conversations with friends while its al fresco area overlooking the Manila Baywalk and sunset view sets the laid-back vibe one will truly enjoy.

Most of its customers also are either family hanging out during weekends or those young professionals from the offices located at the RMC. With Gourmet Farms’ sustainably produced and certified organic coffee, The Library Café is now at the forefront of Manila’s coffee scene.

The holidays has officially started and to kickstart the season is The Library Cafe’s Holiday Drinks now available for a limited-time only. Concocted by its resident barista Baron Dizon, kiddie parties are the inspiration for this special line of hot and cold drinks to enjoy this coming season.

First up is the Choco Mallows Latte. A classic mix of milk and chocolate syrup topped with crushed cookies and marshmallows. Have it your way either hot or cold. Enjoy the flame-torched top that gives this drink some texture and additional ‘toasted marshmallow’ flavor that will surely be a sweet treat for any kid or a kid at heart.

Served either hot or cold, the White Mallows Latte on the other hand is a drink with more caffeine hit. A mix of an espresso shot (or two), milk, marshmallows, and a topping of torched mallows and white chocolate cookies, this is a drink reminiscent of childhood for grown-ups.

And the star of the Christmas concoction range—the Affogato Supreme. A shot of espresso poured over two scoops of vanilla ice cream topped with a slice of coffee brownie and some crushed cashew. This drink is served on a martini glass evoking the merry-making vibe of the holiday season.

Pair these coffee concoctions with a selection of delectable desserts and pastries made daily and indulge in The Library Café by Gourmet Farms Holiday Drinks this season.

The Library Café is located on the Ground Floor, Ramon Magsaysay Building, Roxas Blvd., Malate, Manila. Call 0917 539 8414.
