Cafe Noriter

When Coffee and Buoyant Art Meets.

            My favorite hangout shop in the Taft Area when I was reviewing was Cafe Noriter. The artsy place does not only offer coffee and tea but it also boosts my creative side.

            Cafe Noriter, located at the 2nd floor of the corner building at Taft and Estrada Street, is a jumble of arts. Child-like doodles cover the walls, miniature models attached to the columns,

travel photographs in the tables and even fiction novels in different languages.

            Aside from the decorations, the seating arrangement varies inside the shop. If you’re there to just hangout, you might want to try the loft area where you can sit in a wooden platform with cushions on the side. 

            If you’re with your special someone or if you want to take a nap or if you have a group study to do, you can cozy up in the double deck cubicles in the corner of the shop.

            There are 4 cubicles available, where you can enjoy a semi-private location.

            For the drinks, Noriter offers Iced and Hot Coffee as well as Tea and Coffee Frappes. They also have a variation of loose leaf tea such as Camomile, Peppermint and Lavender.

            My favorite is the Lavender Tea because of its soothing aroma. Add to that the charming teacup of Cafe Noriter that will truly make you smile.

            For the food, the bestseller is the Honey Bread. The bread is good for two with its size at approximately 5" x 4" with a thickness of almost 2". Topped with a generous amount of whipped cream with cinnamon and caramel syrup.

            Honey Bread is not only about the toppings but also about the perfect crispness of the toast and the buttery goodness of the core, all for only P120.00!:)

            Now, if you're done with the drinking and the eating, squeeze your imagination by creating the most charming cup in the place. If your cup is that good, you might end up in their magical shelf full of stunning works of artsy cups.

            This cup was made by one of the most artistic persons I know. :)

            So if you're in the Taft area, drop by at Cafe Noriter. Parking is scarce but the place is worth visiting.
