If you’ve stumbled upon this article, then yes, this is your sign for a much-needed cup of joe, and what better atmosphere than the vibrant (and maybe slightly saturated) community of Bonifacio Global City? Contrary to popular belief, the epicenter of gathering isn’t all about its aesthetically pleasing persona but places itself as a hotspot for authentic brews, shared over conversation and connection.

In need of a new spot? Invite a friend and skim through our list of the vicinity’s new cafe establishments as they pleasantly await your arrival.

atmos Philippines


Address: One Bonifacio High Street Mall, Lower Ground Floor, BGC, Taguig, Metro Manila
Store hours: 11 a.m.-10 p.m. (Daily)

Apart from its retail-lifestyle classification, Atmos Philippines manages a seat on this list by introducing its “Otaku Room,” reminiscent of Japan’s community-based spirit. Complex Philippines was given a sneak peek into the two-story flagship branch prior to its March 26, 2024 unveiling, as the space’s wooden interior and welcoming atmosphere invite the gathering of individuals with likened interests over meticulously concocted beans and alcoholic beverages.

Address: 3/F Fully Booked, B6, Bonifacio High Street, Taguig, Metro Manila
Store hours: 11 a.m.-10 p.m. (Mondays-Thursdays), 10 a.m.-11 p.m. (Fridays-Saturdays), 10 a.m.-10 p.m. (Sundays)

An immersive experience of La Union’s waves injected into sweet and savory delicacies, Del Unión transports the serene laid-back persona of the surfing hotspot, settling alongside Fully Booked’s wondrous shelves.

Take part in their nurturing narrative with the land, delivering a piece of home to the metro.

Deuces Coffee


Address: L/G SM Aura Premier, 1634 McKinley Pkwy, Taguig, Metro Manila
Store hours: 10 a.m.-10 p.m. (Daily)

Makati nomads (specifically wandering along Legazpi Village’s streets) are bound to find Deuces Coffee’s bright pink and white signage that invites the curious eye. Beyond the brick-and-mortar location’s “Instagrammable” distinction evidenced by its Cultural Center of the Philippines-inspired interior, the once-coffee-roasting establishment decided to pivot at the onset of the pandemic, delivering an authentic cafe experience to the homes of family and friends. From a single bottle of green coffee beans to setting foot in BGC, Deuces Coffee expands its portfolio with hopefully another “match made in heaven.”

harlan + holden coffee


Address: 28th St, 3rd Ave, Taguig, Metro Manila
Store hours: 7 a.m.-10 p.m. (Daily)

Harlan + holden’s time-savvy vision translates into its coffee-centric space, complementing its Because Coffee landmark with another minimalist location (literally) around the block. The two-story outpost introduces exclusive menu items and additional seating, likened to a private viewing deck, emphasizing soothing brews, aesthetics, and mundane appreciation. A bit distant from those north of Bonifacio High Street? Well, they’ve got another cafe-retail branch coming (and possibly opening its doors soon).

Yardstick Coffee

Instagram: @yardstickcoffee

Address: 4/F SM Aura Premier, 26th Street corner, McKinley Pkwy, Taguig, Metro Manila
Store hours: 10 a.m.-10 p.m. (Daily)

Yardstick Coffee is no stranger to communicating through blend, generating a lasting impact to build, engage, and nurture its growing movement. Introducing its Specialty Coffee roasts in 2013, the proud coffee-hospitality purveyors set foot in the vicinity alongside SM Aura Premier Cinema for a beautifully brewed pick-me-up after a retail therapy session or a two-hour cinematic experience. Building on its community-based advocacy, Yardstick Coffee awakens the coffee-interested mind through its novice-friendly workshops and initiatives, emphasizing learning and growing together. It’s never about them, but the coffee and the blossoming relationships nurtured along the journey.
