Frank x Dean is one of the cafes I frequent the most. It’s a few blocks away from the office at Bonifacio Global City so it has become a perfect go-to place to relieve stress or just kill time.
They are relatively young, with operations started barely a year ago. They are the first shop to open in the Forbes Town Center Open Garden. As of this writing, Tipsy Pig has already opened. With its very modern and artsy vibe, Frank x Dean has slid through the BGC market pretty smoothly.
Frank x Dean teams up with Yardstick Coffee to upscale their coffee menu and is at par with their creative and delectable food selections.
Here are a few of what I’ve tried so far:
Frank’s Espresso Shake
I am down with anything topped with ice cream! Frank’s Espresso Shake is iced beverage concocted with espresso shots, milk and vanilla ice cream! Perfect for a post-lunch drink with friends!
Basic Brew & Homemade Blueberry Cheesecake
This combination I got after a long day at work. I love the simplicity of the Basic Brew. It’s black and light-bodied. It has a very low level of acidity and just enough bitterness to wake you up. No unpleasant after taste which is really, really good.
I paired it with the melt-in-your-mouth Homemade Blueberry Cheesecake. I was really surprised at how the big the slice is! Crust was a bit too hard but it’s fine. That blueberry jam oozing from the top is really the star!
Long Black and Doughnut
I’ve been trying to get a bite of their doughnut but I only got a chance a few weeks ago. It was a bit crumbly and has a bit sour aftertaste (though not the bad sour, maybe brought by lime extract?). Paired it with a long black to get that perfect balance of bittersweet.
I love the sharp taste of their cappuccino. It cuts right through my palate which makes it easy to down a cup! The foam is just the most perfect I’ve seen so far. I’m not a great of milk foams but I’d be pissed to miss this one.
Visit Frank x Dean in the morning from 7AM – 10AM. You’ll get a free basic brew for an order of a breakfast. Also, make sure to taste their pizzas for a #HoldAndFold experience!
Frank x Dean gives a different experience for your usual cravings! I love how I can just escape the busy urban life without really leaving the business district. I’d suggest to go in the afternoon and pick an al fresco table.
