Traveling is great but I still need my coffee fix every now and then and most of the time, especially in the provinces, it’s hard to come by unless you don’t really have any other option but to have that 3-in-1 sachet or, if in Bongao in Tawitawi, the local coffee shops. But in Ozamiz City? I heaved a big sigh of relief when I came to know The Coffee Lounge!

Ever since I was a child, I’ve already traveled to this city in Misamis Occidental as I have relatives there and in Tangub City where we also used to own a farm lot. But when I do visit this side of Mindanao, after the farm was sold, I usually stay at Royal Garden Hotel where the cafe is located at the ground floor.

I like the interiors. It has a sophisticated yet cozy vibe and better compared to other cafes in other provincial cities, if there are, at all. The chairs are comfortable and I usually stay beside the street side window as I always like seeing those traysikads passing by. The coffee and food are just okay, enough to satisfy a craving or a hunger. They do have a variety of food available from meals to pasta and pizza, cakes as well as different kind of drinks and coffee.

When not doing anything, well, Ozamiz is laid back, I hang out here, with free hotel wifi, without going far. The Coffee Lounge is also active in social media and check them out in Facebook for the latest promos.
