WOW! I exclaimed as we entered a quaint cafe in Dipolog City which our host from the Department of Tourism Region 9 and the city tourism mentioned as the new popular hangout, especially for the ladies because of its decor. It’s full of color, mismatched furniture, words written on walls and tomes hanging from the ceiling that it takes time to fully absorb this beautiful chaos.
While Cebu is stuck with pen like cafes, this one in Dipolog is much more sophisticated, interesting, playful and with an interior that makes your imagination fly. Living up to its name as Chapters Book Cafe, it is replete with books and an overall theme based on the classic, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
There are quotes from the book running across a beige wall, multi-hued strips at the opposite side, a figure of the Little Prince atop an open cabinet in the form of oversized and inverted cups. Furniture comes in different sizes, colors and form. And all these makes the ladies giggle with delight.
But do ask for their food too, especially the cupcakes. Delicious, velvety and good.
