Take Me There: 💘 💘 💘 💘 💘 💘 💘 💘 💘 💘 10/10
Prepare for the prettiest place you’ll see all day.
Deep in the heart of Bulacan in the Philippines sits a beautiful pastel-coloured cafe that looks like something we passed out and dreamed up after overdosing on mint ice cream and candy floss.
Yes, that good.
Decked out in only the daintiest pastel furniture and decor, Cafe Congreso in Malolos is giving us all the coffeeshop goals. Opened by coffee-lover Joseph Malabana, the creamy curious cafe was inspired by Wes Anderson’s movie ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ (if you haven’t seen it, you HAVE TO), and, we’re not gonna lie, we’re definitely seeing the influence.
Nailing it down to every tiny detail, Cafe Congreso twinkles with delicate pink chairs and light green wall paint, as well as minimalist art and large millennial pink jars. There are cute tiny details such as coffee plant drawings and elephant plates, and every item truly complements the quaint colour combination and daydreamy vibe.
Heck, even the brown paper coffee bags look freakin’ gorgeous.
However, whilst the cafe prides itself on specialty coffee and a soothing atmosphere, there’s also a charming food menu to follow suit. Serving anything from breakfast dishes to burgers, pastas, pizzas, and homemade ice cream, the pastel-coloured cafe serves simple dishes in sweet style. Perfectly Instagrammable and sure to rack you in lot’s of likes, it also doesn’t seem entirely out of place to unwrap and devour a Mendel’s cake here.
(For those not in the know – those are the famous cakes from the movie. Also, they’re very very pretty).
