Trust me to get my dates wrong and my mind so preoccupied but I actually went to Coffeecat days before their major opening slash launching last Friday, July 16 at the ground floor of the eBloc building where JP Morgan Chase currently holds court. You wouldn’t miss it because beside MyJoy and Julie’s establishment in the same building, there is a bright red signage of a faceless cat that just magnetically pulls you inside. Why faceless? You’d find out.
Welcome to Cebu, Coffeecat!
They were kind enough to let us and my baby Sebastian in. You could tell he loves the Yogurt Smoothie. Coffeecat’s first visitor – a takaw shih tzu maltese!
If you have seen their Davao branch that is sitting in food district Torres Street, you would appreciate how they tried to be consistent with their trademark minimalistic look.
Coffeecat is 90 square meters of stylish and chic space which can accommodate a total of 60 guests with its indoor and outdoor seating combined. The café specializes in expertly handcrafted beverages made from premium coffee blend illy®, a careful balance of 9 types of pure Arabica beans from South and Central America, India and Africa which createsthe unmistakable illy flavor always identical in any espresso cup, wherever it is drunk around the world; non-coffee drinks like Avalanche Ice Blends and its signature product – Yogo Premium Frozen Yogurt in Original or Green Tea Flavors.
Yogo is the finest frozen yogurt made with the freshest ingredients, a mixture of fresh non-fat organic yogurt with probiotics and organic skimmed milk. Yogo promotes a positive feeling by serving a delicious tasting treat that is good for both body and mind. With optional fruit toppings available, it can help make up ones 5-a-day diet.

“The name ‘Coffeecat’ is the product of an intriguing play of words,” the young JC Tan of Coffeecat Corporation said. “We want a coffee shop that doesn’t intimidate.”
