Press Cafe at Fully Booked

Books Plus Food = Heaven

This equation could certainly make my day and perhaps yours too. I recently discovered Press Cafe as I was checking out the books at the newly opened Fully Booked at The Block, SM North. The scent of food draw me in and as I saw the prices, well, it made me stay.

Press Cafe is the sister company of Fully Booked (according to the store manager). So far, there are only two branches of Press Cafe, the main one located in Rockwell and the newly-opened store at The Block. If you happen to stumble upon Press cafe, here are some of the “best-sellers” you need to take note of:

Combo Meals
The combo meals here is their version of “value meals” and when they say value meal, they really meant it. If I am not mistaken, there are four types to choose from but the most notable ones are the Sandwich Combo Meal and the Pasta Combo Meal. You could choose from any kind of sandwich or pasta for their combo meals. I’ve tasted their Pesto and Fettucini and they are superb! The combo meals also includes a garden salad, soup (corn or mushroom) plus iced tea.

Price Range: Php95-150

The mini-pizza they serve here is of course, suitable for only 1 person and it only costs around 55 pesos. The pizza here is yummy considering that it only costs 55 bucks.

Porkchops Galore
The scent of the porkchop is the reason why I was drawn into eating my dinner here (for the second time that day!). The porkchops are served with rice and the size of one porkchop could certainly suffice one’s appetite. The cost for the porkchop is 95 pesos (1 piece) and 135 pesos (2 pieces).

    I haven’t been to The Block yet! I’ll check out Fully Booked there when I visit.

    And those pork chops sound yummy. I’ll try to remember that!

    What’s this trend of food in Bookstores? There’s the Java Chip in Power Books and another one in Different Bookstore, anyway, it’s a good move plus they have all these poetry/book readings at the stores. I hope they have more of this in all branches. :)
