Dessert bliss at MyKaffe bakeshop

MyKaffe bakeshop is a hidden gem in Caloocan City. This nook is a good place to have a light meal or snack. They offer cupcakes, cakes, cookies, and various breads that can be paired with either hot or cold beverages.

The pink-themed walls are decorated with decals and chalk-drawn illustrations. There are cushioned seats and coffee tables for customers to enjoy their baked goodies or sip coffee, tea and iced specialties.

Since this is my first time here, I ask for one of the house special iced coffee---the black forrest frappe (120 pesos). The German dessert black forest cake is my favorite, so I picked this chocolate frappe. Once I tried it, I got hooked. The iced drink blend tastes like a good slice of the cake. Topped with whipped cream, chocolate shavings and a cherry, it has a touch of sweetness not as heavy as those served in American coffee shops.

Mocha Mint (120 pesos) with Brazo de Mercedes Cupcake (50 pesos)

The brazo de mercedes cupcake is a good interpretation of the Filipino favorite mouth-watering dessert. The cupcake is made of soft, marshmallow-ishy texture of the egg white layer complemented with the heavenly, custard-like egg yolk mixture in its center. I love it!

Carrot Cupcake (55 pesos)
myKaffe Bakeshop makes this terrific moist and delicious carrot cupcake. The grated carrots and walnuts make it more flavorful. It's not too sweet and not greasy like other carrot muffins I've had. The creamy frosting complements its fluffy cake. I don't think another carrot cake will ever come close to this great experience.
Left to Right:  ChocNut Cupcake, Salted Caramel, Oreo Cookies and Cream Cupcake and Tiramisu Cupcake

The Red Velvet Cupcake makes the rich dessert richer as the creamy cheesecake and moist red velvet cake come together in one amazing cupcake! This Red Velvet Cupcake twist comes with a moist cupcake layered with cheesecake like filling and red velvet cookie crust. Cheesecake goes perfectly with red velvet! These cupcakes are so irresistible with its soft, chewy perfection! You got to try them!

Another favorite is the Tiramisu Cupcake. This cupcake tastes like a moist cheesecake soaked with espresso and topped with whipped cream, and cocoa powder. Thinking about it makes me crave.

The ChocNut Cupcake is heaven for chocnut lovers.  Oreo Cookies and Cream cupcake is chocolatey goodness.  I find ChocNut, Red Velvet plus Oreo Cookies and Cream cupcakes a bit heavy on sweetness. The Salted Caramel borders on sweetness. This caramel-flavored cheesecake is topped with a unique salty frosting that balances the sweetness of the brown sugar. Simply put, it is the best of both worlds!

Chocolate Chip Cookies and Cranberry Oats Cookie 

Cranberry Oats Cookie is a crispy, chewy butter cookie. It is the perfect oatmeal cookie! The oats and dried cranberries give it texture and the ideal amount of sweetness!  The Chocolate Chip Cookie is not too sweet but palatable like I imagined it to be.

If you want to surprise a love one with a personalized cupcake like these, do place your order at least 2 weeks in advance.

I definitely recommend myKaffe specialties.   They have delicious line of sweet treats and drinks. There is no other place in Caloocan where you can get reasonably-priced baked goodies and drinks that are yummy.

This place may sometimes get crowded but it is worth the wait when the food is delicious.  Visit soon!

Movie Stars Café

At a time in our lives, we have identified with the Marvel heroes and reel superheroes. My family and I were thrilled getting an invite to dine in this great place.

TV monitors were mounted all over the place. The plethora of TVs to watch any sport you wanted makes a nice, fun atmosphere.
My childhood dreams came alive at Movie Stars Café. The movie-themed restaurant is a showcase of one’s favorite hero, villain, anime. There were props from different movies all over the place. Life-sized statues of the Catwoman, Shrek, Spiderman, the Aliens and autograph pictures of actors decorate every nook and corner.

The costume-clad waiters and waitresses were ready to serve and ready to make customers happy as we acted like kids again. We were surrounded with movie stars everywhere.

We felt genuine hospitality as we enjoy dining in, and watching the productions. Movie Stars Cafe is an awesome place to reminisce childhood hero fantasies being in the company of different movie characters and mingling with them.

My favorite among them is spiderman. He actively engages in candid poses with guests while balancing on backseat beams. I also love the Spiderman show. Danica’s favorite was “Beauty and the Beast” on the Easter Sunday night that we went. Shows are held at 30-minute intervals starting from 7PM.

Movie Stars Café allows you to take pictures with your favorites as the staff dressed up in various movie characters provide entertainment. They approach guests ready with posing gestures of the character they're in. They make sure everyone gets a good laugh and enjoys a great cosplay eyecandy on and off stage.

Movie Stars Café's fun atmosphere had my daughter enjoyed going around the hero-themed restaurant for more snapshots.

Movie Stars Café offers buffet or ala carte food. The buffet spread is a meat lovers delight.
If you're not too hungry, I suggest that you order ala carte.  The restaurant offers American and Intercontinential food.  Their thin-crust pizza is a must try!

You will love the musicale and movie show productions and find the Movie Stars Café as an entertaining place. Go visit Movie Stars Café soon using discount code GIFM-4358.
