Siargao’s Famous Shaka Cafe Is Now Open In BGC To Let Us Experience The Island Vibe In The City

Siargao’s Shaka Cafe opens in BGC

If you’ve been to Siargao, chances are you’ve visited or heard about Shaka Cafe, a famous restaurant, which is known for its colorful fruit and vegan delights, located in front of the island’s surfing spot Cloud 9.

They have expanded to various tourist spots across the Philippines – from Bohol’s Alona Beach to Moalboal, Cebu – but city-dwellers can now also experience the island vibe that this cafe has been known for by visiting their newly opened branch in Bonifacio Global City. Shake Cafe’s newest branch has just opened at the Burgos Circle in BGC, Taguig on 7th June.

Situated in the midst of buildings in BGC, the new brick-and-mortar branch has stayed true to the cafe’s rustic, minimalist visuals outside Manila through its laid-back interior accentuated by wooden materials and greenery.

Order their famous smoothie bowls and vegetarian dishes

The cafe is best known for its Instagrammable, fruity smoothie bowls, and if your palate is craving for something refreshingly sweet, try one of the bowls such as the Bom Dia (P300, ~USD6.16) composed of acai, banana, mango, pineapple, and mixed berries. You can also relish their burgers without worrying too much about your meat consumption because their burgers (starts at P350, ~USD7.19) are 100% vegan.

For beverages, you’ll be spoiled by a variety of drinks and flavors to choose from, as they also serve smoothies, kombucha, cocktails, teas, juices, and coffee.

You can order online

If you are rushing for an appointment and can’t queue at the BGC branch, you can also order your meal online for pick-up. They are planning to set up an in-house delivery service for residents in BGC too.

Whenever we’re missing the breeze of Siargao, thankfully there’s now a Shaka Cafe branch in BGC to indulge our cravings!

Shaka Cafe is now in BGC

As most of us who live in Metro Manila can’t easily book a flight to Siargao yet, city dwellers can now relive their travel memories in Siargao through Shaka Cafe’s delightful interior and meals.

You can visit them here:

Shaka Cafe Bonifacio Global City
Address: Burgos Circle, Forbes Town Center, Taguig 1630, Metro Manila
Opening hours: 6AM-9PM, Daily
Mobile: 0968 750 0779
