Long Weekend Coffee Review

The idea of a long weekend lets many breathe a sigh of relief. For some, it is a time to go on a much needed vacation while for some, it is a time of rest and relaxation, a time for peace and quiet. Long Weekend Coffee, a hole-in-the-wall coffee shop, embodies this idea.

At Long Weekend Coffee, time simply stops, literally. Hence, there is a huge clock that doesn't work because, again, time stops when you're at Long Weekend Cafe. You can forget about the pressure and simply relax while enjoying a cup of good coffee.

Their 100% Arabica Coffee is locally sourced from Benguet and Sagada.

Aside from coffee, they also serve craft beers for night outs and chill sessions.

The space is very cozy, there are areas that give you privacy if you prefer some alone time but there is also a long table that has outlets on it.


I'm not much of a coffee drinker, but I do appreciate a good cup of coffee. What I really can't get enough of are frappes. I was able to try their Banana Chai Frappe (P145), Frozen Macchiato (P120) Frappe and Oreos & Cream Frappe (P110).

I can't say I'm fond of bananas but the Banana Chai Frappe takes the cake. It has that banana taste but with a hint of a refreshing flavor. It's an addictive blend of banana and chai thrown into a frappe. A whiff into the Banana Chai Frappe will entice your taste buds. It smells really good. 

I must say it's my first time trying such a frappe and it really was a pleasant surprise. I hope they come up with more exciting frappes such as the Banana Chai Frappe.


For those who love spicy food, the Arrabiata pasta is for you. It's really spicy and is not for the faint of heart. I find that it goes well with Long Weekend's Banana Chai Frappe, the intertwining feeling of spiciness and refreshing coolness was oddly satisfying. I finished most of this dish because I do happen to like spicy food despite me saying "it's so spicy" after every few bites.

Their adobo flakes are on the sweet side, perfect for the Filipino palate.

The food is good, it is nothing special, just your average Pinoy favorites except, of course, for the Arrabiata Pasta. However, I would like to point out that the serving of their all-day breakfast menu is generous. I appreciate the generous serving since breakfast is the most important meal of the day after all, and you would want to eat a hearty breakfast to fuel your day.
