Hanging out in a coffee shop has obviously gone mainstream. Whether you’re discussing business, bonding with your fams or just chatting with your besties, a coffee shop is definitely a good decision. It’s so rare nowadays to see a coffee shop with an empty space. With their cool ambiance and interiors, great service and rocking menu, there shouldn’t be any reason why it wouldn’t be a hit.
These are just some of the things that the Daily Beans Coffee Lounge and Restaurant offers. This it-place is owned by four enterprising young men who have been friends since childhood. With the strong bond of friendship they have, it’s no wonder they know what people are looking for in a cafe.
The Daily Beans started brewing in 2011 with its flagship store in Pililia, Rizal. After its remarkable success, they decided to open a new branch, a Coffee Lounge and Restaurant located in the bustling area of San Roque, Antipolo City, along the Sumulong Circumferential Road fronting Unciano Colleges.
According to the store’s proprietress, Sally Tarraya, the idea of putting up a coffee shop in the middle of a long road along Kilometer 56, Manila East Road in Barangay Hulo, Pililia Rizal, where daily commuters and travelers pass on their way to Caliraya Laguna, Quezon, and other tourist destinations, was a smart move due to its ideally strategic location.
For the past 5 years, people of all ages have been frequenting this haven, where they can rest and chill while ordering their choices of freshly ground coffee brewed and extracted on a daily basis, where they can select from Choco Java Chip and Mocha Peppermint Frappuccino, Cappuccino, Latte, Mocha for their Hot Coffee, with their favorite pasta or cheesecakes. The store has become a part of the everyday lives of its customers.
The Daily Beans offers a variety of dishes and refreshments for young and old alike. The Coffee Lounge serves coffee, frappuccinos, Avocado, Mango Banana and Strawberry Mango smoothies, pasta consisting of Spaghetti Meatballs, Carbonara and Chicken Pesto, sandwiches, salads, burgers and other snacks. Their restaurant portion serves sumptuous Filipino food such as Sinigang sa Miso which is a hit among its clientele, Grilled Tuna Panga and Belly, Adobong Matanda and Roasted Chicken. All-Day breakfast fares are also included on their menu, The Hungarian and Schublig sausages have proven to be best sellers.
“One thing we are really proud of is that we do not use additives, seasonings like MSG or broth cubes. For our beverages, we do not use pre-mixed powder. Everything is healthy and natural. We make our own chocolate sauce, sugar syrup, and other fresh ingredients. Our homemade cheesecakes are authentic, rich and satisfying,” Gisela Amonoy, Operations Manager remarks.
The homey feel, family ambiance, quality and sincere service, warm relationship with their crew are outstanding factors that have kept The Daily Beans blooming all these years. This has led to the necessity of expansion in order to cater to even more Filipino families. The new branch in Antipolo is in another strategic location since it is fronting a school and a hospital. And in the EM Gems building where it occupies, it is the only coffee shop amidst the other eateries. The Daily Beans Antipolo branch is co-partnered by; Joshua Tarraya, Accountant, Dan Tarraya, Manpower Services, Jojit Restauro, Travel Sales Manager and Francis Guanco, Creative Director.
“Fresh coffee is a beautiful thing, and when you can get it in a shop that manages to both pour a great cup and induce a pleasant sort of vintage super cool vibe, you’re doing it right on all fronts,” Francis adds.
The Daily Beans Antipolo is open daily, Mondays to Saturdays from 8 am – 10 pm and on Sundays, from 10 am – 10 pm.
