It's been awhile since I last visited Afters Espresso Desserts located along Tomas Morato in Quezon City. When I walked in, I was pleasantly surprised to see the vast improvement of the place. The lighting is brighter and the area looks more spacious than before.

Afters means dessert in Italian
I was with some friends for some coffee and dessert but we ended up ordering other items on the menu as well. Mr. Vincent Lim Fideles, the amiable owner of the place, revamped the menu recently. Aside from an extended list of coffee and non-coffee drinks, the menu now includes All Day Breakfast and a wide selection of Afters Signature Gelatos.
Afters Signature Gelato
Gelato is an Italian-style ice cream.
It has less butterfat than ice cream, made by churning slower and has less air whipped into it; making it denser than ice cream.
|Belgian Chocolate Php 95|
Belgian Chocolate is one of Afters best-selling gelato. Take my word for it. Don't forget to order and indulge in rich, dark chocolate flavor like you have never tasted before. Other flavors to try are Sea Salt Caramel and Pistachio.

My daughter and I shared an All-Meat Platter and a plateful of Carbonara. We washed down all the carbs and protein with a glass of Strawberry Blenders... yum!
