Bean Box is a newly opened cafe surrounded by different universities in Manila. The name of this cafe explains why it is called when you entered the venue, "Bean" for coffee beans and "Box" since the seating area are like boxes. It mainly targets students who wants to hangout, eat, study, relax, or just sleep! Yes, you can sleep in their "boxes." 😉 This cafe has a Korean feel in it because of its interior, posters of Korean artists on their windows, and their menu.



The place is strategically placed surrounding universities since college students are really coffee drinkers and always looks for places to hangout. The place is spacious since it can accommodate groups of people however, since they are a lot of customers, the boxes/tables were easily occupied and sometimes you would wait to be seated.

Besides of being allowed to stay until whenever you like, sleep, eat, and study, customers can also charge their gadgets without any charge! All of the tables/boxes has an electricity socket. 👍

So there's the menu. Their other food such as ramen are not listed on their menu but it is listed on their counter. It is really quite expensive but considering you can stay until whenever you want and can charge your gadgets without any fee, I think it can be reasonable. 👊


We have tried their Seafood Ramen, and their cakes namely: Red Velvet, Mango, and Dark Chocolate. The Seafood Ramen was delicious and costs Php125+. For the cakes, it was good but nothing that special about it.
