There is this new restaurant that we visited a week ago called Jack Meets Kaldi Specialty Coffee. When a new restaurant/food place opens up, we just have to try it. When you see it on your Facebook feed, your curiosity just grows more. It is located on Bypass road in between San Sebastian and Fairlane Subdivision. It is next to Primadelli Restaurant. You won’t miss it. The place is beautiful and they have a large outdoor space in front of the cafe. This is their facebook page for more information.
JACK MEETS KALDI SPECIALTY COFFEE
The Jack meets Kaldi Specialty Coffee place is very Beatles inspired. You will see artworks all over the place. The owner must love them.
We went at around 6pm ish and it was not crowded around that time. Their menu is a good mix of pasta, salads, all day breakfast and other things. We asked the server what he would recommend. He gave us some suggestions on each category. I ordered the English Breakfast. It has salad, potatoes, sausages, bacon, eggs, grilled tomatoes and a brioche bread. I loved everything on this plate except the bread. The bread is like a buttery loaf bread and it crumbles a lot, didn’t like it. I loved the salad! The dressing is amazing. I wanted more of that. I think they make their own sausages and they cure their own bacon. The menu gives you the option of how you want your egg done. Poached is not on there but I asked them if they could do that. They did. 🙂
My cousin ordered the carbonara. It came with a piece of bacon and garlic bread. I think they should improve on their bread. We usually love garlic breads because we order more of it but this one was lackluster. The pasta was really good. It was creamy and the flavors are really good.
My other cousin ordered the seafood marinara. The mussels were the star of this dish. They were really nice.
They had cakes too with prices on the 100-130 pesos range. The restaurant also serves fruit drinks, coffee, and tea which ranges from 100-200 pesos. We didn’t try their cakes or their drinks. The meals are around 300 pesos a plate. Sizes are individual. They are a bit on the more expensive side but I think it’s well worth it for the quality of their ingredients.
I think it’s a really nice place to hang out and meet friends. It’s in a quiet area. They have good food.
