Iced caramel Machiatto is 💚! At the back of Robinsons Lipa is the biggest branch. Accessible and not overrated. Compared to any other coffee shops out there ✌️

It was after dinner, we were full but we just wanted coffee. Café de Lipa was an obvious choice as we vacationed at a nearby resort and wanted to experience local favorites. When we arrived, we were happy to see that CDL's place was a pleasant yet trendy Café. It was well lit, seats were spaced & positioned for all... More

It just the same cafe I visited in the other coffee shop. They have a good ambiance, free WiFi, quiet and peaceful place. But I notice some of their crew and staff was chatting so loud even if they have a customer. Hopefully when I get back, some of their crews will be more approachable to the customers. :)

When in Batangas, one should try this coffee place. The cozy interior is at par with the international brands and the coffee is very good! I also ordered their tea and surprise, surprise, it is not in a tea bag! They are real leaves which is another plus points. The chocolate cake was also delicious.

Wnated to try the various types of coffee beans they sell, unfortunately they only sell the expensive bags, the coffee they serve is just the local brew. I walked out.

What a way to save for purchasing your coffee beans from a local brand that tastes just like the expensive ones!

I was at the SM branch of this famous cafe in Lipa. I only tried their Barako Joe large size coffee and it is really a strong, good coffee, a trademark of Batangas. Will try the cold coffee mix when I get by next time. Ambiance is good.

They serve good pastries and latte. Nice place to snack while waiting for the rest of the group to finish shopping.
