This café with a not-so-secret bar tucked away on the second floor is another great late-night spot in Poblacion.

White Camp Specialty Coffee & Kitchen
This cozy café in Quezon City is open until 11 p.m., so you have time to chug on a mugful of caffeine while munching on some of their Cheese Wontons (P165).

The Brewology Café not only knows their coffee, but they’ve managed to spin good 'ol waffles into new varieties you’d keep coming back for. Our go-to waffle? The Waffogato (P160), buttermilk waffles that are drizzled with coffee syrup and topped with vanilla ice cream—not to state the obvious, it really is like an affogato in waffle form.

Part bar, part coffee shop, and part collaborative space, Dulo MNL is one of Poblacion’s coolest spots. Their Cappuccino is a must-try, with its bold and smooth blend that’s exactly what you need to power through a long night. Their Charcoal Latte (P140; P190 with espresso) is worth a shot as well, pun intended.
