“Good Coffee & Comfy Seating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2012

A couple visits this week to the starbucks at SM malls' north wing. It's been expanded with nice wall art and cozy chairs. staff friendly and coffee good. Large coffee 105pesos. Good spot to relax. Free wifi. Opens at 8am while mall opens at 10am.

There's another Starbucks in the mall as well but it opens at 930am.

“It's just starbucks!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2012

It says a lot about our city if we think starbucks is considered good coffee or a good place to hang out or whatever these reviewers are liking about it. Yes its comfortable and you can get a good, if expensive cup of coffee, and its conveniently located..but it's just starbucks! Travel to places where there is a coffee scene that has traditional, local, independent, and commercial ( starbucks) coffee establishments and you'll see and taste the difference. As for the other local coffee shops in town, they are just trying to copy ( quite poorly) the starbucks model.The question is, would a real high quality coffee place ( where they import real coffee beans and roast them on the premises) ever work in cebu? Sadly, probably not--without the brand name, the place would suffer as people just don't have the energy to dig for those hidden gems, and frankly do not have an appreciation for true quality.
