Illy Caffe

Went here with friends on a rainy Wednesday afternoon. It was my first visit. Suprised how there are a number of  choices  for savory items.. But of course I have  always known how good their coffee is. After all Illy originated in Italy...


Per google, "illycaffe  is an Italian family business founded in Trieste in 1933 and committed to offering the greatest coffee to the world. Illy is the world's most global coffee brand, producing the unique illy 100% Arabica blend made of 9 of the world's  best selections of Arabica..."


The Food

Last Wednesday, we were served the following :

Filipino Breakfast P265
Smoked sardines served with two eggs, roasted tomatoes and  garlic scented rice per the menu
What was served though were side greens and fried garlic rice. The smoked sardines were really good and best paired with either  a hot cup of  chocolate or  a strong cup of brewed coffee.

Grilled Chicken with  Orange Vinaigrette P275
Loved the crisp greens and the grilled chicken breasts which were moist.  It married well with the citrusy vinaigrette which nicely complemented the  sweet grapes and nutty lettuce.

Fettuccine with Truffle P350
A pretty straight forward dish. The pasta was al dente. The truffle sauce was creamy and did not overwhelm. Loved the bread on the side.

Quattro Stagioni P 515
If you love smoked ham, black and green olives and artichoke, you will like this flat bread . 

Cappuccino Viennese P155
Illy espresso cappuccino with a mountain of whipped cream dusted with cocoa hit the spot. It was the perfect drink on a rainy day  which was how it was last Wednesday.


I love  that  cafe nowadays already include savory items. Saves us time and gives us more excuse to linger over our  hot beverage and perhaps order more.

Illy's food is  prettu straightforward , delicious  and reasonable price wise. 

This branch in Paseo Center Makati is  quite spacious, perfect for tete a tete with friends. I loved the dark wooden tables and chairs and that huge chandelier of colorful  Illy special edition espresso  cups  which Illy Caffe all over the world are famous for.

I dont know about the parking space though.

Illy Caffe is located at the ground floor of Paseo center along Paseo de Roxas  Makati.
