Went searching for a cafe yesterday while waiting for hubby in Market! Market! I wanted some refreshment and a nice place to sit down and get some things done. I tried to shy away from the usual - Seattle's Best, Coffee Bean & Starbucks to discover something else.
I found Icings.
I found Icings.
|Icings Market! Market!
The place looked cozy. Glass walls rendering a blast of natural light, happy color of teal played with white and couches to boot. They offered a lot! From all day breakfast meals to pasta & pizza, sandwiches, soup and entrees. Then they have a selection of coffee blends, both hot and cold, an assortment of fruit and other cream based coolers. They also have pastries and cakes for dessert.
Let me explain...
|Icy Minty Mocha for 150Php
The ice blended Mocha was the most watered down mocha I have ever had in my life! It didn't have a hint of coffee in it nor chocolate. Yes it was minty but that's it! It was like drinking cold water with a teaspoon of chocolate powder and a dash of coffee. I could have grabbed some iced coffee from McDo and would have been happier. Totally not worth it.
|Chocolate Muffin for 45Php
|Just look at that! Hah!
Then their Chocolate Muffin. Not sure if they know what CHOCOLATE means LOL. This muffin could use more chocolate. Sure there were about 2-3 chunks of chocolate in it but that's not the right way to go. It was also dry. Guess the price of 45php was a giveaway.
Though the service was good and the place was nice, that didn't really make up for the bad coffee and muffin experience. Not sure If I will give their main dishes a try. It was such a let down. By the way, if you are eyeing this place when you want some work done with your laptop and phone - don't dare! They don't have charging ports.
2 out of 5 Stars for Icings!
