Welcome to Café 91, a really chic, minimalist café located at the 2nd floor of Avenue Square, Naga City.

They were previously located along Magsaysay Avenue, at the ground floor of the DSI building, but when a space at the Avenue opened up, my friend Nick decided to move to a bigger place. He had been sharing the previous space with a boutique, and it didn't look like a café. So, he moved out. 

Café 91 took its name from the owner's birth year, 1991. The menu was created by Nick himself, and from what I heard, he's going to introduce new flavors (and food!) after the Holy Week!

Every time I'm inside the café, it feels like I'm at home. Nice vibes all around, great food, plus a really cool inspo wall. They even have a magnetic word board for you to maybe generate ideas with (if you're a blogger) or use to promote a quote. They've got dream catchers, a photo wall, a map of the world, books, plants, and clothes that are for sale.

A few of their monster frappes, lined up. I've tried the S'mores (sweet and tasty, albeit a little sticky because of the marshmallows) and a friend tried another frappe flavor, and I can personally say these are definitely sweet treats. This filled my stomach for dinner too, so if you don't want rice or pasta and want something cold instead, maybe try these out.

Aside from frappes, they also have snacks like nachos, fries, sandwiches, burgers, waffles, and pastas. They're launching a new range of items after the Holy Week, and and friend and I were lucky enough to be able to taste them first before anyone. (They also have alcoholic versions coming up too!)
