espressamente illy

espressamente illy (expressly illy) is a chain of Italian-style bars that serves coffee, among other things.

I decided to try them out after having passed by espressamente illy at their Mall of Asia branch a couple of times already.

First off, a Cappucino Freddo (Php130 for a 12oz cup).  Looks really nice but coffee is a little weak for my taste.

Next, a nice, warm slice of Apple Pie (Php145).

I like their version.  Not too sweet.  Just right.

All in all, not a bad dining experience.  J

Espressamente illy also offers other hot and cold beverages; pizzas, pastas, sandwiches and wines.

  1. Aside from the one I saw at the airport, I haven't seen an Illy shop somewhere else, do you have any idea where I can go and try this? Thanks! :D

  2. Espressamente exelliente! LOL totally random but I just wanted to put that. :))

    Indeed, a difficult name.

  3. I saw this in Rockwell, at least I think it's the same one. But I haven't tried it yet. :)

  4. Parang di ko type ang cup na ginagamit nila to think na ang sozy ng dating ng name ng bar na yan. Choosy daw o! hehehe! Gusto ko yung apple pie!

  5. I always see this in MOA but I've been ignoring it lang. I guess it's time that I do the same and try out their coffee and pastries.. :) Will try to lounge here the next time I'm in the mall. Their apple pie looks enticing :)

  6. I'm a coffee lover, too! But haven't tried the apple pie. Looks good!

  7. @michymichymoo: There's one in MOA. That's where we tried it. Plus another one in Blue Wave. =)

    @michi, Aileen Adalid, & Pinay Travel Junkie: I agree. I have to research what the name means though. Heheh! =)

    @Guia Obsum: Apple pie's good. Not a fan of the coffee though. =)

    @anney: In fairness, they use glass naman. Hehehe! =)

    @Sumi Go: Maybe the other drinks are ok. Our coffee just didn't cut it. =)

    @joei ♥: It is. =)

Breakfast is an indulgence for me.  Mainly because I am super lazy to have breakfast.  But when I do, there is no better start to your morni...
