For quite some time, we’ve been eyeing to try Epic Coffee Roastery at Kapitolyo, Pasig. One rainy afternoon, we finally did.
Epic Coffee Roastery is a sister company of Poco Deli, one of our favorites among the Kapitolyo restaurant lineups. Entering the café, we instantly felt comfortable with their interior that is simply yet creatively designed.
The contemporary wood interior design of the place is quite striking. Aside from tables and chairs, the counter, shelves and some adornment are nicely made of wood. I like how this whole wood setup is accentuated by brick walls.
The owner must be a huge fan of bicycles that is quite evident with a real bicycle displayed at one corner that added a unique ambiance to Epic Coffee Roastery. I also noticed some bicycle decors.
I find the menu written on chalkboards really cool.
For our afternoon merienda (snack), we ordered Belgian and Strawberry Cheesecake with Mochachino and Cappuccino.
Their coffee comes in two sizes, regular or large. We got regular Cappuccino for PHP110 (Large – PHP130) and large Mochachino for PHP140 (Regular – PHP120). Both coffee flavors tasted the way they should be. The foamy cappuccino rightly has that strong espresso flavor. The chocolate in Mochachino does not overpower the cappuccino in it that may be good for those who wanted a twist on their classic cappuccino but do not want a chocolate overdose.
They also serve frappes and non-coffee drinks.
The cakes we ordered are just simply fabulous. I really like their Belgian Cake (PHP130). Belgian chocolate is very much famous and is actually considered by a lot of people to be the world’s best chocolate. Imagine having it on your cake? It just wonderfully gives the traditional chocolate cake a largely different meaning. With extremely dark color, Epic’s Belgian Cake has that rich Belgian chocolate in between layers that is not very sweet.
I seldom eat strawberry-flavored stuffs (in fact, I don’t really eat them before). For cheesy food, I don’t want the cheese to be overwhelming. As for cakes, the second last thing that I will order is a cheesecake (because most of the time, I find the cheese overly crazy that I feel like I’m eating pure cheese). And the last thing I will have is a strawberry cheesecake. I gave Epic’s Strawberry Cheesecake a try and I am just too glad I did. The strawberry and the cheese flavor in it just adequately constituted the cake – not too much of any of it. This is by far my first favorite Strawberry Cheesecake.
P.S. Their rainbow cake looks interesting.
