Commune is a gem of a café in this lively part of Makati – tucked in the middle of Rockwell and the vicinity of Ayala Avenue. The café, which champions Philippine coffee, is famous for its three-dimensional lattes and its pair of resident cats. However, it also flies the rainbow flag – a message that in this space, where everyone and everything is welcome. It’s also a venue for talks and other events (such as improv shows). Sometimes, these concern the LGBTQ+ community, so it’s particularly busy and buzzing during Pride Month.
