As the Philippines braces for Mangkhut a monster of a storm 550 miles wide with maximum sustained wind speeds of 170 miles per hour,  I found myself in a grab car on my way to a Coffee Crawl sponsored by SM City Sucat and TigaSouth Ka Ba.

I was actually of two minds since last night. I wanted to go but I do not want  to be in the center of a raging typhoon. The news took care of my anxiety. Apparently, Mangkhut locally named Ompong  was set to make a landfall in the North early dawn Saturday.

It helped too that although the sky was overcast this morning, rainfall and wind speed were almost nil. The weather held . It felt like a regular overcast day with some drizzling towards nightfall.

As I write  this, I pray  the country would  be spared Ompong's wrath and keep those in the storm path safe from harm.


A foodie friend @boyeatworldph and I were at SM City Sucat as early as 930 am. The call time was 10 am . We hate being late you see. Spotted Starbucks and decided to kill time there. Soon we were joined by @chizbuneats and before 10 am we were already walking towards building A  and the Administration office.

Briefing started at 1030-1045am and we hit the first store at a few minutes past 11am.

Love in every cup

Farron Cafe was derived from the names of the two owners, married couple  Farwa and Ronnel Hombre .The cafe was born almost 10 years ago while the couple was still in college.

"Farron Cafe rose to popularity for its coffee frappe sold for less than P100 a cup, far more affordable than the ones offered by big coffee chains" - Entrepreneur Phils July 2018

Their store  in SM City Sucat is not even a stand alone restaurant. But their growth  is outstanding. The brand reached 100 outlets within 3 years of franchising. Fast forward to 2018,  Farron Cafe now has 235  kiosks nationwide.

The taste of drinks was amazing yet all their drinks are P88 and below. I ordered Strawberries & Cream and tasted my friends' chocolate and mango variants.

I will be sure to check Farron in the malls near our usual haunts. This budget conscious mom is quite happy to have discovered  Farron Cafe and its affordable yet quality drinks.

FARRON  CAFE  is located at the third level food court of SM City Sucat in San Dionisio Paranaque
