The Daily Grind Cebu: Great Place to Hangout & Chill


Just a new writer here. Food & Travel Enthusiast cool

After a very taxing week from work or from school, plus the inescapable traffic jam in Cebu, it is worthwhile to unwind and enjoy during the day off.The problem is, going to the same old places can be a total worn-out.

I feel you ‘beshie’ but hang in there! In the suburb area of Mabolo, Cebu City, a new coffee shop has sprouted and it could be a perfect “Tambayan” for weekends.

The Daily Grind  is a newly opened coffee shop that offers more than what you actually need like beverages from your all-time fave, coffee, wine and even beer. They also offer snacks and meals if you love to munch and if you believe that food is life more than anything else.

“If we have to sit all day, it might as well be at a pretty cafè.”


THE AMBIENCE — We were seated on the second floor because the lower area was crowded with folks waiting for their orders as well. The interior design is simple, yet quaint.  They have bean bags if you want to bask around under the golden sun during sundown, as the restaurant usually opens at around 6AM.  It is an open-space area except for the counter where you can have your orders and the private function room beside it that’s air-conditioned. As I’d said, this place is perfect for hangouts or exclusive parties with your friends. An ice cold beer is definitely much welcomed after a tiring or stressed day out. The place is located in the heart of the city, yet you’ll find that it’s also far away from its bustling noise. It sits in a secluded area and just at a walking distance away from Sarrosa Hotel in Mabolo, Cebu City


With regards to my expectations, The Daily Grind Cebu even exceeded my usual café experience because of the food and ambiance of the place. The only thing I could really justify was the influx of people, how inconvenient it sometimes was because it’s flocking almost every hour to order a coffee or two. I don’t think I’ll ever wonder why though – this café has definitely lived up to its hype.  Bonding with my friends and co-worders will always be my favorite!

“Don’t look for love. Look for good coffee.”
