Hidden in one of the small alleys is one of Boracay’s best kept secrets.
Located at Station 1 along the alley after Havaianas and Island Foot Spa, Real Coffee and Tea Cafe has become one of the must visit places in Boracay.
Edit:  Real Coffee has moved to Station 2, they’re now on the second floor of Sea World.
A friend who frequently visits Boracay recommended Real Coffee to us. He said that the place serves great coffee and Calamansi muffins. Being calamansi fans, we decided to give it a go.
The place has a homey feeling that instantly relaxed us after battling through the crowd at the Station 1 beachfront. The bamboo and nipa open structure was charming. Nadine and Real Coffee’s ever smiling staff welcomed us while busily working behind the counter.
We ordered a Latte (PhP 120) and Cappuccino (PhP 100), as well as their famous Calamansi muffin (PhP 45) and a serving of Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brownie (Php 80).
The calamansi muffin is best eaten fresh out of the oven. It tasted somewhat like lemon squares, but better because of the unique calamansi sourness and smell. The Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brownie is a welcome addition to their menu. It wasn’t too sweet and tastes really good together with the coffee.
The calamansi muffin is a great pasalubong that is also available in boxes of 6, 9 and 12. This can be considered as a Boracay delicacy. But be warned. They get sold out pretty quickly. So if you are planning on bringing home some of the delicious muffins, it would be better for you to order in advanced (on your first day in Boracay!) and just pick them up before going home.
