Throwback: UST Café Faves


It's been four years since I graduated college from the University of Santo Tomas yet the general vibe of the campus is still very familiar to me. Out of all the things I miss in UST, the cafés around and within the campus still hold a special place in my heart (since I spent all my time writing our thesis and being over-caffeinated in them).

Coffee Indulgence

1 save

Manila, Philippines • Memory • 

The college building of my course back in 2013 was beside Padre Noval Street where there are a lot of choices for cheap eats, perfect for a college-kid wallet. Coffee Indulgence is my top choice back then (and even now when I visit the campus occasionally) because 1) it is literally located in front of the P. Noval Gate of UST; 2) their pasta and coffee menu are delicious, filling, and cheap; and 3) housed inside Coffee Indulgence are other small food stalls where they sell cheap takoyaki, grilled sandwiches, waffles, and the like.

La Taza

1 save

Manila, Philippines • Memory • 

La Taza takes a bit of a walk to go to coming from the Noval Gate of UST but the 5-10 minute walk is worth it because the farther the establishment is, the chances of finding a table for you and your friends are higher. Tucked in a small complex near Padre Noval Street, La Taza served as our usual production meeting place where crazy creative storylines for our Film and TV Production classes came to be as we enjoy delicious pasta dishees, milk teas, and iced coffees.

D Cream Coffee & Tea

2 saves

Manila, Philippines • Memory • 

D'Cream's "Golden Sun" Milk Tea with a shot of espresso brings back so many great memories from my college days in UST: taking a walk in Lovers' Lane with my friends, jogging around the field and getting D'Cream after to defeat the purpose of cardio, and maximizing the 15-minute beak between 3-hour classes brisk walking to D'Cream and back to the BGPOP building among others.
