In a world where simply eating out with friends and family isn’t enough, business owners have tried to keep up. Suddenly, it’s not just about the food anymore but the experience that people get. This has led to all types of themed restaurants, boardgame cafes, Instagrammable food, and the like. But the thing is to experience one thing is to choose one restaurant.
Well, now there’s no need to choose because Cafe Laferennie has it all!
Located in the heart of Quezon City, this cafe has everything you need for it to become you next go-to hangout place.
Just opened in February this year, Cafe Laferennie offers an all-in-one experience. They have board games, books, artsy walls, PLUS rainbow burgers, and huge milkshakes!

The owner, Ms. Lanie Labre, shared that it all started with her love for coffee. So, she came up with a concept that would cater to the millennial market that’s all for experience and pretty food. Being a family business, the name ‘Laferennie’ came from the names of each family member. Pretty clever, huh?
Cafe Laferennie is a crib-style cafe that has lounges sectioned off for each group of customers instead of the regular tables and chairs. Customers can enjoy sitting on the floor with the fluffy pillows and cute stuffed toys. It’s a cool place to just really hang out with your friends and talk about everything under the sun–or even just sit around and do nothing while enjoying each other’s company.
You can also borrow fun board games from the wide range of choices from the cafe–as long as you get one at a time. Or if board games aren’t your cup of tea, you can also borrow books and get lost in the adventurous world of reading. They have a wide selection of all types of books–from the latest Young Adult series to self-help books. Imagine starting a book club at this cafe.
If you’ve run out of things to read or play, you can also write a letter to your future self with their ‘Letter Later’ corner.
Cafe Laferennie allows their customers to write a letter to themselves or to other people for them to read in the future. They’ll keep it in their ‘Letter Later’ corner until you (or the other person) comes to read it after a year or more.
The owner shared that it was inspired by the ‘letter later’ website featured in the Pinoy film Starting Over Again. She thought that it was a great way for people to see how much they’ve grown and what they’ve learned over time. Plus, it’s an effective way to finally let out all of those feelings you’ve been keeping inside.
Where do broken hearts go? They go to Cafe Laferennie to write a letter to their future selves.
