“Best Coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2013

This is a household name in La Paz, Iloilo City as it is where the locals go for the best coffee in town. They brew their signature coffee but it would only cost you not much to have a very good cup of coffee. It is located in the middle of the public market so don't expect an ambiance like Starbucks and they don't have cappuccino and lattes. You will see many mugs being displayed as they are owned by regular customers so you could bring your own mug or cup and just leave it for your next visits.

“Madge Coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2013

Madge Cafe is one of the oldest and classic site to see. If you are a coffee lover you'll love it, if not you'll feel disappointed as theres no significant view and probably nothing aside from serving coffee in a traditional way. Anyway is it so cheap that if you are a lover of coffee you'll probably get 2 - cups of different variety.. Its a good experience though.

“Great Coffee This Way”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

Alright, this is not for those who like to sip cafe lattes with their pinkies raised and with soft jazz playing in the background... but if you would like a taste of coffee prepared the old fashioned way, and a chance to mingle among the locals (celebrity or non-celebrity), Madge Cafe will surely delight.

Order your coffee strong, and the taste is smooth and mellow. It is in the middle of a public market, so be prepared to see a few curious personalities. Parking can be a bit difficult, so better take public transportation.
