To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of cake and coffee, maybe cookies and frappe. So I went with my co-bloggers to try and taste satisfaction. No one of us has been there before so we rely on the map from Google, thanks to technology. From Pureza LRT station you have two options on how to get to Gilmore Station; either you take the LRT or PUJ like what we did. Then from Gilmore, you’ve to walk three blocks to reach Granada St. and another jeep to arrive at J.Abad Santos cor. Santolan Rd, whereas you can find The Orange Place Hotel. It’s easy to find because is along the road.
The one we visited is also the restaurant in the hotel, the coffee shop actually is located in Eastwood, EDSA Shangri-La Mall, and Katipunan, but nonetheless, they serve the same mouth-watering cakes and awesome brewed coffee perfect black or with creamer. The place was cozy and quite intimidating, but we been able to handle ourselves.

Verdict time comes, when the first slice was served. It was a delectable serving of Devil’s Food Cake, so if you want to experience hell in the sweetest way try this one. The second variant we’ve tried is the Swiss Alps, best for those with sweet tooth; the flavor was so creamy and diabetic. *haha* Third slice was Carrot Cake, weird right? Don’t worry it is not for vegetarians. It tastes less like a carrot but cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla.
Eating sweet for two and half hour makes me full because I eat like a pig. I almost forgot how many slices I’ve eaten, it’s worth the price. Going home is definitely less complicated, there are G-liner Busses straight to Quiapo, and it is just 20mins trip going back to Pureza. You can take bus going back and forth because it is easier and faster.
You have and you must try this. Promo lasts from 10:00AM-9:00PM every day.
