After starting out with smaller outlets at the SM City North EDSA Annex and along Emerald Street in Ortigas Center, Caffe Ti-Amo finally opens its first flagship café at the ground floor of Greenbelt 5 in Makati.
Caffe Ti-Amo is an international chain famous for both its coffee and gelato and combinations of the two. Fans can now look forward to indulging in the café’s creations such as Caffelato Frappe, a blend of iced coffee with Italian gelato in mocha, caramel, tiramisu and coffee-free flavors (yogurt, strawberry and green tea); Affogato, hot espresso poured over cold vanilla or Tiramisu gelato; Waffle Gelato, a Belgian waffle topped with gelato, kiwi and peach slices; and Honeybread Gelato, a serving of honey and toasted bread topped with gelato and spiced with cinnamon.
The Greenbelt 5 branch has an outdoor ambience, mixed seats and tables and a nook called "The Anything Area"
With brick walls, dimmed lights, an outdoor café ambience and a nook dubbed, "The Anything Area," the Greenbelt 5 branch sweetens the deal and allows for leisurely lounging where dessert lovers can indulge in cups of gelato without worrying too much about the calories (gelato has less cream and less fat than its equally sweet counterpart, ice cream). Flavors include vanilla, ube, strawberry, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, chocolate chip (straciatella), chocolate mint, melon, blueberry, orange and piña colada. Serious dessert lovers will also have more options with cakes like Dulce de leche, Blueberry Cheesecake and Tiramisu.
