We always hang out at Beatico Cafe in Balibago but it was our first time here in their SM Clark branch. Our orders: hot Hazelnut Mocha and Cafe Mocha Mint both from their list of best sellers. As a critique of anything and everything, I always go for new blend and concoction so at least I can assess the difference and share it to friends and readers who haven't tried it yet. I think I was born to criticize and scrutinize (laughs).
Going back, the place is quite small but still has that relaxing feel since the inside is isolated thus preventing noise and smoke from getting in. There are also chairs from its open air vicinity (smoking area) but since we don't smoke, we preferred to stay inside and read their magazines and newspapers. It's been quite a while since I read in prints due to the free news updates that sell like hotcakes over the Internet and I can say that nothing still beats reading from a papyrus material.
Overall, my coffee experiences with Beatico have always been satisfying and I will give an "A" for its cheaper price but according to my taste buds, my five star rating remains faithful with Starbucks coffee.
