Coffee Prince Cebu: Hanging Out in a Doll House

Café at the heart of the city – that is how I can describe the newly opened (not new anymore as I’m posting this coz I visited the café a month ago) café. I also feel like I’m in a doll house the whole time I was inside the cafe, probably because of their interior setup.

Lately, Cebu has been a home to many coffee houses. From time to time, there are a lot of cafes opening within just a month, just like how 7/11 boomed here. Coffee Prince Cebu is no difference, they opened their doors last August 17, 2014 but it wasn’t until Friday of that week that I visited the place.

Based from the info I’ve heard ’round town, Coffee Prince is based on the Korean TV series with the same name, Coffee Prince. I think that’s why their uniform also resembles those from the series. Apart from the previous cafe I’ve visited, Coffee Prince Cebu is more like Starbucks, Bo’s Coffee and the earlier coffee houses here, though they differ in their setup (I meant the interior of course). The café is more like a Korean touch and the division of their room-like place is more like that of the Gentleman coffee house (though I haven’t visited that yet… I just saw it).

Their products are so affordable and they did not (at least that was how I saw it) offer Korean foods despite the Korean-like ambiance. They offer their guests pastas and desserts like lasagna and choco waffle. Their drinks and food price ranges from Php 170 to Php 200. You can find their menu on their counter and also the password for their WiFi is in the counter area but you can also approach one of their crew to ask for a password.

The place is also a hotspot area with I think 3 sources. Their entertainment is that wig thingy were you can take pictures with those wigs on and you’ll also definitely love the stuff toys they displayed there. Their stuff toys remind me of those from the Korean TV series, Princess Hours. They also have 4 heart-shaped screens (I’m not quite sure if screen is an appropriate term for that) on which you put your love locks.
