What makes Moon Rabbit’s panna cotta (P180, ~USD3.27) unique is its rabbit shape, which will make you think twice about eating it. But don’t miss out on this cute dessert’s taste – just be sure to snap a few photos for the ‘gram.
This frozen panna cotta is creamy and filled with a strawberry puree that gives it just the right amount of sweetness.
Pair this with one of their coffee offerings or try their fragrant lavender chocolate (P160, ~USD2.91) which you can get iced or hot.

Moon Rabbit is a versatile dining spot. Besides coffee, it also serves cocktails to pair with your food so you can go there for an invigorating lunch, Sunday brunch with family, or dinner with friends.
Try their specialty cocktails (from P375, ~USD6.82) such as Sandy Cheeks – a blend of classic rum, coconutty Malibu rum, lemon juice, and cocoa powder. But if you want to stick to their food’s East Asian theme, get Yosi-mitsu, which is a mix of Islay and Japanese whiskey, campari, and sweet vermouth.
