Zero-X Cafe is a new coffee shop in Cebu with crypto-inspired aesthetics.

Looking for a new coffee shop in Cebu? We’re sure that many of you have heard of Zero-X Cafe by now. 

Its impressive design is half of what makes it so appealing. Apart from getting your dose of caffeine, don’t miss out on their selection of pizza, pasta, and rice bowls

This new Instagrammable cafe in Cebu City opened in September this year, located along V Rama Avenue. 

Parking space is available, and it is big enough for more than a few customers looking to get their coffee fix.

This brunch restaurant has a futuristic design that is cozy and aesthetically pleasing.

Zero-X Cafe is also the first crypto-inspired coffee shop in Cebu, offering irresistible craft coffee and comfort meals with a relaxing Japandi ambiance. You will notice this in their chic furniture and design elements. 

Its atmosphere is its main selling point, giving customers a relaxing space to hang out or get creative. Other than that, the place is definitely Instagram-worthy. 


Cebuanos are sure to fall in love with this stunning cafe along V. Rama Avenue.

he Japandi interior is inspired by Japanese and Scandinavian design, giving the cafe a simple yet elegant look and feel. 

Japandi is mainly influenced by wabi-sabi and hygge. The former is a Japanese philosophy acknowledging a slower, simpler lifestyle, while the latter empowers comfort and well-being.

The wooden pillars and pots give contrast to the shiny beige floor. There aren’t a lot of colors going around, which makes the place easy on the eyes. 

In fact, it’s what gives the place its charm.

Management emphasizes the need for customers to feel how spacious the cafe is, meticulously arranging the furniture to make it feel less cramped. 

This allows customers to walk around freely and explore the crypto-themed interiors.   

The cryptocurrency coffee shop aesthetic stems from the owners’ and investors’ belief in the new, often criticized form of technology. 

You can see this through the many design choices like the crypto symbols displayed on the walls.

For example, the cafe is named after the peer-to-peer exchange of Ethereum-based tokens. On the Ethereum blockchain, crypto wallets – which serve as a trader’s identifiers – all start with a 0x.

A large frame of the Bitcoin Whitepaper – a document introducing it as a cryptocurrency – also hangs on the wall, serving as a centerpiece. 

This document was uploaded on the internet by the creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto. 

You can find a triptych of a cybernetic android called the Neotokyo S1 Citizen on the wall as well. This is an NFT (non-fungible token), which is a unique form of cryptocurrency and has a digital signature that differentiates it from other forms or crypto.

NFTs can come in the form of art, music, games, and many more. It is called “non-fungible” since it cannot be traded or exchanged for another. 

Finally, at the end of the cafe, there is a text that says “Wagmi,” which stands for “We’re all gonna make it.” This is a rallying cry used by crypto traders to encourage and inspire everyone that they too can earn tons of money from trading.  

The cafe’s mezzanine is currently under maintenance as they wait for more furniture to arrive. It is said to be ready by December of this year. 


Zero-X offers a ton of food options inspired by a variety of international cuisines.

For food options, this coffee and brunch restaurant hybrid offers a selection of meals that take inspiration from various cuisines, each curated and handpicked by the chefs and owners. 

Their meals cost around Php 300 to Php 500, with large servings that can be shared with a group. They also offer a few light dishes to pair with their coffee drinks and other beverages.

One of their bestsellers is the Orange Chicken, which has bite-sized chicken strips coated in a signature tangy sauce. It is paired with their specialty fried rice, and topped with fresh coleslaw. 

For other options, you should try their other breakfast plates like Filipino Tocino and Chorizo, or order their Gyudon Bowl. They even offer fluffy pancakes served with bacon and eggs. 

For the sides, you can choose between Mozzarella Sticks and Potato Chips. The Mozzarella Sticks are served with a sweet marinara sauce that complements the sourness of the cheese, while the Potato Chips are lightly seasoned and easy to eat. 

This coffee shop in Cebu is a caffeine-lovers’ heaven, with original brews of coffee shop staples like lattes, americanos, and cappuccinos. You can pay an extra Php 30 if you want to upgrade to oat milk. 

For non-coffee drinkers, Zero-X also offers several flavorful cold teas to help you cool down. Their Blueberry Citrus is a standout, with a slice of lemon to complement the sweetness.  

There are many aesthetically pleasing cafes around the island, but Zero-X prides itself as a cafe that offers you a more unique and memorable experience – and there is no doubt that people are still buzzing about it.  

The neat and impressive design is sure to catch your eye first, but the food, drinks, and service will make you want to come back for more.
