Turn A Page And Take A Sip At Tweedle Book Cafe

It all started with a dream to build a public library with a chocolate shop and, of course, with a great love for books. “Since I was in elementary, I’ve been saving up for it because I really have a deep passion for books and because I love chocolates!” exclaims Tweedle Book Cafe owner, Jamie Perez Ong.


Now the public library she longed to put up has become a reality, albeit with a little twistat wit is now a cozy, lovely spot in the Tomas Morato district, frequented by students, people who are just out to chill, and of course, book lovers like Jamie herself.

Tweedle Book Cafe (which got its name from the characters Tweedledum and Tweedledee from Alice in Wonderland) has become a haven for bibliophiles not only because it houses an extensive selection of local and foreign fiction and non-fiction titles, from bestsellers to unique finds, but also because of its delectable selection of homey dishes and comforting drinks. A visit to Tweedle Book Cafe transports visitors to a world of wonder with the interiors inspired by elements from books and famous authors.

“This place is really a combination of a library and cafe. When we were putting this up, my husband and I were thinking: people here love to read, but there aren’t many public places that allow them to do that. So we opened this cafe, not just to fulfill a childhood dream, but for it to become the go-to place for readers,” explains Jamie.
