Known for their layered coffee, they serve a huge range of coffee, tea and chocolate drink varieties. Patrons of Zabadani also love the low-key, cozy and still elegant Persian vibe by the place. Everything in the menu is Halal and oh-so-Halalicious!
This coffee shop boasts of having the first outdoor air conditioned garden in the country! Not only that, but they are also the first coffee shop to offer the ‘salt and cheese tea” series that rose to fame last year. They are open 24/7 so students and yuppies frequent the place at night.
One of the newest coffee shops in the city, Java Jive is gaining popularity because of their unique ambiance. They are open 24/7 and visitors will usually find an acoustic band playing live. Now that’s something one would expect from a restobar, instead of a coffee shop. For family and friends that enjoy music but don’t want the noise in bars, Java Jive is the perfect choice.
While they serve good Lavazza coffee, their meals and desserts are to die for! This Italian coffee shop also serves one of the most delicious pizza and gelato in town. They have high tables conducive for studying, and couches perfect for hanging out.
They’ve been around since as far back as the late 90’s and they have pioneered the coffee revolution in Davao.

Aside from the durian coffee, don’t forget to order their choco torte cake when you’re in Blugre.
