21 Kilometers Coffee is a great spot for a quick coffee break or a hefty breakfast meal to start your day.

Their coffee beans are from Tanzania and Mt. Apo.

Tanzania shares the same borders as Ethiopia, known as one of the best coffee producers in the world and the birthplace of Arabica beans. 

Tanzanian coffee is believed to have a fruity flavor, with a slight sweetness similar to that of brown bread. The beans are also notable for smelling like apples with a slight floral fragrance. 

On the other hand, their locally ground beans are from Mt. Apo, which aside from being the country’s highest peak, is one of the most popular places in the country to grow coffee beans.

These beans are also being supplied to popular cafes in the Philippines such as Bo’s Coffee.  

At this breakfast restaurant, you can pair any of their meals with their brewed coffee or seasonal drinks. With less than Php200 you can already have a memorable culinary experience. 

One of their most popular breakfast specials is the Waffle Breakfast, which is served with Hungarian sausage and a sunny side-up egg. 

Their banana pancakes are served with bacon, which costs Php85, making it the perfect budget-friendly meal for hungry motorists.

Other food items include a selection of sandwiches, rice meals, and pasta. You can also finish off with any of their desserts, such as cakes or cookies. 

21 Kilometers Coffee may seem like a low-key streetside cafe, but its budget-friendly offerings and breathtaking ambiance definitely help it stand out among the many other coffee shops in Cebu. 

All you need for a great time in Cebu is conveniently situated 21 kilometers away from the city.
