Of course I didn’t miss this! It’s a must when in Boracay. Tourists would take home boxes of their famous Calamansi Muffins. They also have other pastries to boot but that really is what they are known for. I only had a bite of it years ago but I never forgot to take a mental note of visiting their branch. Yes, it’s about time to have some Real Coffee & Tea Cafe.
At first, I thought that this was only a small stall. I was surprised to know that they have a 2nd floor. The space was quite open and can accommodate multiple diners. There was no need for fans as there was a slight breeze coming in. What would really catch your eye are the photos propped up everywhere. Lots of diners enjoy their time here that they send photos to this place. You can see it carefully placed on the tables, walls and that window thing near their kitchen/bar.
I only had the latter two, namely, their Real Coffee and Calamansi Muffin. As much as my friends enjoyed their choices, I just had to go for their coffee. It had a shot of espresso which made for one strong brew. I had to mix the milk in to balance the flavor. It went nicely with the tarty calamansi muffin. And yes, I enjoyed every bite of it. I was on the verge of buying a box but I was wary of the timing (being on a boat and all). It had a nice texture and consistency that no wonder people flock here to have a taste. Aside from their delectable pastries, I heard that their dishes (mostly breakfast ones) are good too. And that’s for another visit (and another excuse to have one of those muffins again 😛 ).
Only thought in my mind once we exited this place: can I have some more pleaassseee? Those muffins were quite good! Not sure if anything in the metro could compare to it but there’s something about theirs that could get you addicted. As much as I would enjoy it over here, nothing compares to having it in front of a beach and lazily downing it with some good coffee. Yup, will someone sign me up for that island life living? 😀
