There is joy in eating calamansi muffins and sipping coffee every morning of your Boracay days. Many people will tell you this but to me, it’s a case of muffins, mango shake, and sunset.
Located up on the second floor of Sea World, just a few steps away from D-Mall, is where you will find the new home of Real Coffee –a perfect spot to pass time, meet friends, or read some travel books any time of the day while munching on some calamansi muffins.
Here, the staff welcomes you with warmth, greeting you with smiles and “good morning” even during the afternoon. An entry here gives you VIP seats to a wonderful sunset as a backdrop to people strolling around the beach and waves gently crashing onto the shore right below you. Sunset is best spent here.
Furnitures here imbibes personality and support for the local scene–with bamboo and wood, photos of famous visitors plastered all over, and tissue boxes designed with Mama Lee’s quotable quotes define the place. This beachfront space is a much better location of the two decades old coffee shop.
Back in 2012 on my first visit to the island, I remember going to their former location hidden behind alleys, accessible by riding a tricycle. I remember their muffins being slightly cheaper back then, priced at only 45php a piece and now it’s tagged at 60php. I remember tasting it’s soft, moist, and delicate cake with a hint of sour. It was delicious, simple, and unpretentious at best. Today it may be slightly expensive but still delicious.
Some things may have changed but one thing remains the same: this is happiness right at your fingertips.
