As we wake up each morning, we yearn for an early pick-me-up to wake our senses from their sleepy state. And coffee does the job for most of us, so it's really no wonder why coffee shops are a hit—they're where we can get our favorite coffee, the way we like it. Another addition to the numerous coffee shops that have been popping up in the city is this quaint Australian cafe that offers specialty coffee at its finest. Look no further and discover Where's Marcel? in Ortigas.
The brand offers three types of blends—Culture (mild roast with a smooth finish), Evolve (dark, richer roast) and Decaf (decaffeinated). They are brewed using various techniques like the Batch Brew, Cold Drip Filter, Aero Press, and V60, assuring that every cup is carefully done to satisfy the taste of patrons. They brought the Melbourne way of making coffee here for the Filipino fans to enjoy. The result? A mildly bitter, wholesome coffee taste. You'll never have coffee like this anywhere else.
Aside from their coffee, get acquainted with Australian food. They go well with your cup of joe!

2. The Reuben Sandwich embraces thin-sliced corned beef, cheese, and dressing that's not overwhelming in a mouthful but definitely packed with flavorful taste.
