Epic Coffee Roastery is a small coffee shop located in Kapitolyo. It is owned by the same people behind Poco Deli, which is located just a couple of steps away. Despite being a tiny coffee shop, you really can’t miss it since the signage outside has a bright yellow-green hue to it, which stands out especially at night.

Loving the cozy interior. Lots of quirky displays, including a shelf displaying vintage cameras (which reminds me, I can’t believe it’s almost a year since I started taking pictures for the blog using my iPhone – Yes folks, I still haven’t gotten around to purchasing a new camera >_<)

No menu pics here – The items were written on chalkboards placed in various corners of the café. Unfortunately, was not able to get a picture of their cakes either. T_T

Menu items: Sandwiches, Epic’s comfort food, All day breakfast, Epic’s ice cream (Same as the ice cream served in Poco Deli!).

Drinks: Ice blended, Frappe, Classics, Hot & cold, Flavored latte/Cappuccino, Poured over

Pastrami Sandwich. The pastrami was just alright, but it was overpowered by the amount of greens that accompanies the sandwich (lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers). I loved the combination of the slightly salty pastrami and the sweet jam that they used – Although the jam made me feel queasy later on.

While I was deciding which drink to get as a partner for my sandwich, I noticed that they had Hot Chocolate on the menu. I asked the waitress if their version of hot chocolate was bitter, and she said no – So I ended up ordering it, thinking that it tasted like warm Milo or Swiss Miss. I was wrong – It still had a hint of bitterness to it, and it lacked sweetness. Bleh.

Desserts: a slice of Pudding and Rainbow Cake. The cake might look beautiful, but taste-wise, the pudding surpasses it in every way.

Although I clearly enjoy the café’s chic, industrial look, the food was just alright to me – Not too spectacular, but not that bad, either. I still won’t hesitate to give this place another go, though.

Ambiance/Interior: 5/5

Food: 3/5 (taste), 3/5 (presentation)
