Cup of Jo (Tagbilaran, Bohol)

Trying to get updated with my blogging…
Let me share with you now our experience on the Land of Tarsiers and Chocolate HillsBOHOL!
So, we had a very early morning. We left Cebu via Ocean Jet as early as 6AM. G.p and I was up before the crack of dawn to have everything settled before we leave. We didn’t even have time to get a proper brekky so we just grab some donuts and a bottled water on the Pier.
We reached Tagbilaran at around 8AM. Our driver, c/o Kuya Tatsky, was already waiting for us. But we have two more friends who’ll join us on our tour and their plane from Manila will arrive at around 10AM, so we have a good 2 hours to spend. Our driver drop us off at the nearest mall. And yes! BQ Mall or Bohol Quality Mall is open as early as 8AM! kaloka!
I was already starving that time so the first thing I did was look for the perfect place to have breakfast. And the moment I saw a Mc Donalds store, I already made up my mind and almost drag G.p there. But she insisted we try something not available in Manila.
And then there’s JO…IMG_9631
It’s this small coffee shop right inside BQ. It reminds me so much of the old Figaro store in Robinson’s Place Ermita, before they got renovated and turned into the all glassy store that they are now.
True to their slogan, they offer breakfast menu all day! Though we’re there at breakfast time so I guess it didn’t matter much. haha.. I was initially opting for some pizza and pasta but upon seeing that they offer sandwiches as well, I changed my mind.IMG_9629
And though it’s early morning, the sun is scorching hot so both G.p and I ordered their version of Frappuccino. G.p tried the hazelnut mocha while I opted for the stronger version of their mocha blend. A little perk up is what I need that time as I am expecting a long day ahead.

I got the Tuna Sandwich while G.p went for some Ham with Egg and Cheese Sandwich. We requested that they toast the bread a little bit more than usual and the lady who served us did exactly as she was told, complete with a friendly smile. :-) Their sandwiches are served with a separate coleslaw which I guess is perfect for those who doesn’t like coleslaw or specifically, veggies, on their sandwiches. Though their coleslaw is very yummy that I ate G.p’s as well! hahaha.. Sorry! :-P

Overall dining experience?!! Can I give them 7/5 stars!?! More than perfect really.
The lady who served us is extremely friendly I so much adore her. She made me believe that Tagbilaran is indeed the City of Friendship. Plus the sandwiches are sooo yummy. Though the Frappuccinos are not that special but who cares? I don’t expect it to taste like Starbucks anyway. Add the fact that it’s very affordable!
I so miss Cup of Jo. I hope they have one here in Manila (ASA?!!)
So guys, if you plan to visit Bohol anytime soon, make sure to drop by. Very much worth it!
