If there is one thing that hip and trendy coffee addicts love, it is Instagram-worthy treats. And this is exactly the theme of Hue Cafe! Owned by Jay Isais and MJ Isais, the cafe is a new hangout in Maginhawa Street, Quezon City. What makes it a standout? The cafe specializes in pop-ups and hue coordinated treats. A first look at the cafe reveals a palette themed interior and a swatch styled menu.
If that’s not trendy enough, wait till you see their hoverboards. Isais boasts that his ‘HUEver staffs’ are the first to use hoverboards to serve customers. “Hoverboards are so ‘in’ right now. So we thought, why don’t we try to use hoverboards to serve customers? So now, we are the first cafe in the Philippines to use hoverboards,” Isais said.
Another charm of this cafe is in their color-coordinated treats. Why? The treats’ names are based on their colors, and their flavors might just surprise you. For those who do not like sweet treats, the cakes are ideal. Isais’ culinary classes taught him to create complex desserts that are not too sweet. Scroll down and check out some of their bestsellers!
