It’s not everyday that you stay in a coffee shop. I mean, yes, it can be a lifestyle on its own, but face it – it’s an expensive one. Though, every once in a while, everyone needs a breather from the workplace and may be in need for a coffee shop to work at. For me, it needs not to have the greatest tasting coffee, or the fastest wi-fi (though sometimes I insist that, internet should be non-negotiably lightning FAST) but it has to spark your creativity. It has to inspire. It has to kickstart your rather rusty engine and get you up and running about.
Enter Subspace Coffee House, the vintage-overloaded, out-of-the-box concept cafe located at the former Emerald avenue in Ortigas Center.
Everything just seems so well put in this place. Even menus are highly aligned to the aesthetic of the whole store, too. I didn’t get to try some food and drinks though. Maybe next time. Purple Potato Latte and Peanut Butter Latte sounds very intriguing…
If this place doesn’t give you even a hint of inspiration, then I don’t know what else would do. Take a look around the cafe (it’s not that big, anyway) and you’ll notice how the interiors alone redefine the cafe experience! The inspiration for this, so I read from blogs, is the rich and dynamically growing aesthetic of Seoul in South Korea. Arriane, a self-professed SoKor junkie confessed that cafes like this can be found in every corner in Seoul! I died in total and instantaneous envy! I can’t believe how we lack these kind of edgy-looking places here in the Philippines!
Sharing time: I don’t know if I told you already, but I have this kind of repulse over K-pop. However I suddenly realized it becomes bearable to listen to it when faced with overly design-indulgent interior pieces. Plus, I get to “appreciate” the foreign songs just a little bit. HAHA! #stillnotintoit #butnolongerhating
Remember that we did our bloggers preview here? It’s such a nice memory to look back to.
Everyone is happy :D
I shall let the photos speak more for themselves. And oh, a mental note for everyone to visit their furniture store, Space Encounters next door.
