     I'm a coffee lover. This perk me up drink never fails to give me the amp I need to start my day. I think I'm in love with the smell of caffeine. So when an invitation about the grand opening of a coffee shop in Quezon City arrived in my inbox,  my mind keep on saying 'be still my coffee loving heart'

READ. SIP. DINE.
     Book and Borders cafe encourages customers to go through their extensive selection of books, and take their time to hangout or read. In fact, the cafe also make book stands available for its customers, to make reading their chosen book much easier. I wasn't able to roam around that day to see the tittles on display. I just heard that aside from hard bound books, they have magazines, children's books, style guides, novels, and others that I'm sure will entice you to open and read one from the shelves.

     Look ma, I feel like I'm inside a school library again! But it's not the usual library where aside from reading some are taking a nap. At Book and Borders cafe, you'll feel relaxed and awake. The smell of books and the aroma of the coffee is inviting so complementing the nice ambiance and the library aspect of the cafe are delicious light fare and refreshing drinks.
