The Curator used to be that little café/cocktail bar behind Cyrano, but Cyrano’s relocation paved the way for the much needed expansion Curator needed to accommodate it’s increasing number of customers. Seasoned patrons will always go here for their morning fix of Espresso with Milk (P140).

Habitual Coffee is known for their coffee brewed using an Aeropress (P160), resulting in a richer and smoother cup of coffee. Pair it up with their Berry Nut Ricotta Waffle (P260), a pearl sugar waffle with blueberries, almonds, pine nuts, edible flowers (yes, seriously) and sweet ricotta ice cream. Yum.
1. Local Edition
Local Edition screams “collaboration” the moment you walk in and its wide collab table in the middle welcomes you. They even partner up with artists for their art installations. Local Edition’s interior design changes from time to time. It’s the ideal setting for getting work done while sipping a Latte Perea Blend (P135/155).
