3rd Level (Cinema)
Kalayaan Ave., Makati City
My family and I were supposed to go to Power Plant Mall in Rockwell last Saturday but on our way there, I remembered a newly opened mall called Century Mall in Kalayaan Ave. also in Makati City. We immediately saw Starbucks on the ground floor but I was looking for the Australian Specialty Coffee Shop, Toby's Estate.

Toby's Estate is the brain-child of Toby Smith. A lawyer by profession, hee opened the first branch last 2001 in Sydney, Australia. It has several branches in Singapore and in the U.S.

Unlike in Starbucks, Toby's coffee shop has cramped space with just a single bar for its customers on the side of the cashier (see the first photo). People would come and go, just like most coffee shops around the world. You are there just for good coffee, anyway.

Okay, we weren't supposed to use this table because pouches of coffee beans were on display lol

My mom was hesitant to try Toby's Estate at first but I pressured her to give it a try hahaha The verdict? She loved her coffee and she has me to thank for it lol

Except for Espresso and Macchiato which have two cup sizes available, everything else on the menu has only one size.

I read that Toby's Estate will be opening another branch in Salcedo Village soon. I hope it will open one in Robinsons Magnolia or Tomas Morato Ave. in Quezon City so it will be accessible to people living in the North who wanted an alternative coffee shop that serves good coffee!
Up next, a post on our value saving lunch courtesy of Enjoy card!
