Students are slowly returning to campus to attend face-to-face classes, and some might have schedules that will give them hours of breaks in between classes. During such times, Ateneans may head to the library and Matteo Ricci Study Hall to catch up on readings or the usual coffee shops in front of campus like Starbucks or Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. But if you want a space where you can hang out with your new college barkada, you may want to check out these restaurants and cafes:
