Cool name, huh? In case you’re wondering, Where’s Marcel? is coffee shop that came all the way from Melbourne, Australia. The name came from the founder, Marcel, who always gets lost. His family, looking for him, would of course ask, “Where’s Marcel?”
Where’s Marcel?’s interior gives out the cool, hip vibe that would definitely be inspiring for someone trying to squeeze out their creative juices. They also encourage people to actually do their thing inside the café. Their staff are also really friendly-they won’t be giving you looks for pulling out a huge workbook to finish.
The music’s also just perfect for whenever you want to finish something. The vibe is perfect if you don’t want a loud and super crowded place where people are chatting, or a super cozy place where it’s good enough to sleep in. They even have fast wifi that you can freely use. So you can actually get your things done here!
Where’s Marcel? also conducts latte lessons for a P500 registration fee. If you want to learn how to do latte art (which is super cute, btw), you should definitely give their lessons a try. You can get a chance to recreate the cute videos you see online doing all the swirling in a cup of coffee.
Aside from all that, Where’s Marcel? is not all about the looks. They serve truly amazing coffee. They ship everything from Australia to Manila because they want to give the authentic Australian experience. They make sure that every cup that comes out of their bar is perfect for their customer. So, yes, every penny spent here is surely worth it.
Coffee is a huge part of Australian cultur,e much like the Philippines. Their two baristas who came all the way from down under even said that coffee there is almost being drank like water. It’s intense. That’s why it’s not a surprise that their coffee is something that would be flown out of the continent and shared with other countries.
They also have a wide variety of food that you can enjoy for just the right price. Their pastas and sandwiches are good for someone who’s not really looking for something heavy, but would love to have something while working in the cafe. Most importantly, their s’mores is to die for! That, paired with hot coffee, is a gift to mankind. Ultimate heaven.
Look for Marcel now at their Pearl Drive, Ortigas and Makati branches.
