Gone are the days when you can lure people with just Wi-Fi. Because in today’s trend, millennials are into IG-worthy space that offers a distinct dining experience.
Blogger, actress and musician Saab Magalona-Bacarro with her husband, marketing exec Jim Bacarro thought it would be a great idea to open a hub enveloped with books and delectable coffee and food.
That’s why the Bacarros, together with friends, Pao and Kristia Roco opened Cup Fiction-a space perfect to cultivate creative ideas of freelancers, artists and students. The café even has area for events and workshops so it’s the place to go when you’re into book clubs, study sessions with friends and more.
Cup Fiction also bleeds stunning furniture made by part-owner Kristia Roco, called Furniture Therapy. The combination is weaved perfectly as Saab likes books and Kristia fancy furniture. What a pair!
While the concept itself is unique, wait ‘til you see the menu. Food concept is personalized as owners bring about their favorite dishes randomly. From Pinoy breakfast lonnganisa and tocino, to American platter, burgers, pasta, grilled cheese and gigantic chocolate chip cookie. The best part? Everything is in a perfect combo.
Cup Fiction is not only a place to indulge food, but also a community of different personalities whether a writer, an artist, a student or a business enthusiast. Owners encourage people who visit Cup Fiction to compose a piece of poetry, art or whatever they have in mind after finishing a cup of coffee and post them on cupfiction.ph to discover how incredible ideas are produced in one sitting.
Cup Fiction is still on soft opening so expect improvements on the menu and the craft itself. Since the Bacarros are in the music industry (Cheats band), they also wanted to bring in music to the corners of the café as well as poetry reading and even stand-up comedy. Visit them at 141 White Plains, Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City and experience a unique blend of arts, food and friendship.
