– Why is Craft Katipunan a good place to study and work?
“I guess it’s more secluded from the busy Katipunan area, and it’s not as big as the other cafes, so it’s not as noisy.”
Open 8am to 11pm on weekdays and Saturdays; 10am to 9pm on Sundays
Food: Bo’s BLT Sandwich
Beverage: White Chocolate Mocha (Both hot and iced)
Because the place is good and is intended for the students. The location is also convenient, because it’s near Miriam, UP Diliman, and Ateneo. It’s great to study in Bo’s because of the Filipino ambiance. The second floor is specifically for students and looks like a library. The third floor has an area that could be reserved for meetings in group of ten, with no additional charges except for a 2,500 pesos consumable fee that attendees could use for their food and drinks. Because the cafe is open 24/7, it’s a good place for all-nighters.

Gelato is a must try. We recommend the Sea Salt Caramel and Ferrero Rocher, among others. We have several options for coffee, but we recommend trying out our brewed coffee, which uses single origin beans that can be extracted via pour over or press. Afters Frappé and the Frozen Hot Chocolate is something to try out as well. As for the food, ask for the Spicy Hungarian sandwich which is served in ciabatta bread with cassava chips on the side, or the spicy sardines pasta. We also have breakfast from 7am-2pm, and you can try the hungry man’s platter during that time.
We definitely have wifi available for those who want to check out their clan or post selfies online. We have a good number of ports available should you need a quick charge.
