My first time at Toby's Estate was at its Century City Mall branch. We took out coffee and croissants for the movies.
As soon as I bit into the super soft and extremely buttery croissant, I asked the staff to bag the last few pieces on display. Sorry, next customer!
And as soon as I took my first sip of the Mocha, no, I did not attempt to deplete their coffee bean and chocolate syrup supply, but I instantly wished that the Australian specialty coffee shop would open a much bigger branch where I could do it slowly but surely. Hehehe. :)
It was mocha like no other. And no wonder, because they use chocolate from Ghana!
My sister Jamie's Chai Chocolate was equally excellent
My wish came true with the opening of Toby's Estate in Salcedo Village
It is a much, much bigger space than its Century City Mall counterpart
In the middle of the room is this long and chunky wooden communal table that I love
Bar seats, too! Thank you, Universe!!! :)
The personalized Toby's Estate La Marzocco espresso machine
Why so handsome??? ♥
They have Bucky's brownies and my favorite Baked by Anita bocaditos (!!!)
Coffee beans and Toby's Estate merchandise items
When you go, order my favorite Gibraltar. It is off menu so make sure to ask for it.
Two shots ristretto topped with milk. Strong, rich, full-bodied, velvety. ♥
PROMISE ME YOU'LL ORDER THIS AND THE MOCHA!
Gibraltar again with swan art this time
Mushroom Truffle Bocaditos
Earthy, heavenly little thing
It was the perfect ending to our lunch at Gino's. And I see myself coming back for a perfect
start to a morning, for a perfect afternoon break, and for a perfect nightcap.
Look who else popped in! My supermodel friend
The Mr. Yummmmmmy @mmmluakian! ;)
I heard the coffee bar will soon offer different brewing methods like siphon and aeropress. AND the kitchen will soon serve FOOD. I cannot wait!
But even now, Toby's Estate is already my new favorite place. ♥
