Over the weekend, I went to my dad's province to celebrate my birthday. If I celebrated my birthday last year with friends, this year, I wanted to celebrate it with my family.
Due to the heavy traffic from our place to Batangas City plus the dreadful heat, we chose to just chill out in one of the coffee shops in the Municipality of Bauan known as Brother John's Coffee.
This coffee shop is located at La Paz St. cor Kap. Ponso St. Pob 2 Bauan Batangas. They are just a few minutes walk from STC and Bauan Parish Church. They open and close at 8:30AM - 10:00PM (Mon-Thu) while 8:00AM - 11:00PM (Fri-Sun). They have free wifi however, they do not have power outlets where you can charge your electronic devices.
As for the staff, they were approachable and helpful though somehow shy.
The coffee shop is not that spacious but it has a decent space enough to fit groups of people. I'm not 100% sure but I think they have extra space upstairs.
The place is air-conditioned and quiet. The ambiance was very cozy and the music being played were very relaxing too. It's an ideal cafe for a morning coffee or an afternoon study.
They only have a few selection of coffee drinks but the basics are there. Unfortunately though, for coffee jelly lovers, you'll be disappointed to find that they do not have that on their menu.
The price of the drinks are decent and worth the price. We ordered Java Chip and Mocha Frappe and they tasted good. My cousins really loved their Java Chip.
Aside from drinks, they also have cakes, a pasta dish and some sandwiches available. We ordered the Red Velvet cake and I tell you, it was so delicious. The cake was very flavorful but not too sweet; just a perfect blend of ingredients. It's a must try when you visit.
Overall, we had a great time chilling out in this cafe and will definitely choose this again for my next hang out dates.

You can Like them in Facebook for their upcoming promos. I don't think they have a Twitter or Instagram account yet so I suggest you use the hashtag #BrotherJohnsCoffee when you post something about them. ;)
