let's eat: subspace coffee house

hello, february. welcome to 2012. though i'm not so sure i'm happy to see you... just yet.

january came and went too fast! the press cons and events are starting up again, the cover shoots for the first quarter are being scheduled, trips (for biz and plezh) are being planned... busybusybusy! gotta squeeze the blog in there somewhere! lots of stuff to share.

just like the other day. i had a shoot with giselle tongi somewhere in ortigas center. (yes, dear readers, she's back! watch for her in the upcoming teleserye "nandito ako" with jasmine curtis-smith and david archuleta, premiering on TV5 later this month. and watch out for her cover on style weekend!) after the shoot, i took the team out for a late lunch at a nearby café called subspace coffee shop. it's tiny and super cute!
located on emerald avenue, it's owned by the same guys who own the furniture and home-decor shop called space encounters, which is just down the road, and which has the cutest and coolest stuff! but let's have coffee first :-) this is what you see when you first enter:
check out that "chandelier"! more like a ceiling installation. a bunch of broken chairs artfully attached and hung (hmmm are those actual wishbone chairs..?):
we sat on this cozy camo couch by the window (i actually almost bought a similar loveseat from space encounters a couple years ago):
love the mix of vintage furniture and "found" stuff (i.e., junk that was probably thrown out!):
here's the counter where you order:
they've got sandwiches, pasta, empanadas, cakes, and, of course, coffee. all priced real cheap!
