The term café is actually a French word that means coffee. A café is a restaurant that typically serves snacks and, of course, coffee. Cebu has its share of coffee shops or cafés that have opened all around the city in the recent decade. Be it small niche cafés to large US-based coffee shops, there is at least one coffee shop in every major commercial area in the Queen City of the South. While some cafés offer basically the same thing as other shops, there are a few aiming to mix up everything up to provide their customers something new every once in a while. One of these places is the Krave Café.
The Krave Café is a quaint coffee shop located along Salinas Drive, Lahug, Cebu City. The exterior of the café gives you an idea that it is not your typical coffee shop since it looks like a container van that was converted into a café. The interior also follows the same design concept giving the place an industrial chic ambiance.
While Krave Café offers some of the usual coffee shop staple, it does have some menu items that are not typically offered in other places. One of these items on their menu is the champorado with crispy fresh danggit. If you are a regular coffee shop customer, you would not imagine a shop offering this on their menu. Another uncommon item on the menu of Krave Café is the yema cheese cake, which tastes as good as it looks. In addition, they also offer honey-roasted bacon, maple sausage, and saucy beef tapa.
Krave Café is open from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM from Monday to Thursday, 8:00 AM to 11:00 PM on Fridays, 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM on Saturdays, and 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM on Sundays.
