Let’s be real, other than the occasional and planned trips with family or friends, the only reason we go out these days are for errands, specifically those that cannot be simply done online. On your next errand day, you might as well take a detour or extra drive down south and discover this mall cafe in Laguna.


Hiraya Manawari Cafe

Kids of the 90s, you might remember Hiraya Manawari as one of the popular educational programs by ABS CBN from your childhood. While the show with the iconic theme song ended nearly two decades ago, this cafe in Laguna of the same name might be your next favorite.

Conveniently located on the 4th floor of Robinsons Galleria South, Hiraya Manawari Cafe offers a new wave cafe experience with its extensive menu, stylish interiors, accommodating staff, and relaxing ambiance. Whether you’re catching a break in between errands or looking for a new cafe to explore, this cafe might be your cup of tea or brewed coffee (excuse the pun).

Boasting wooden tables, rattan chairs, stylish lights, and plants, the cafe’s industrial and retro interiors are bound to make you swoon at first glance. Yup, it’s one of those stylish cafes you’d want to take photos of.

They even have cute coasters for those who plan on staying to study or work – something to keep your readings or gadgets from getting wet.



The Menu

Aside from its ambiance and interiors, Hiraya Manawari Cafe’s Filipino and American menu would make you look forward to visiting more. They have the usual choice of coffee and non-coffee drinks: from a classic Drip Brew (PHP 70) to Barista Specials like Anton’s Pumpkin Spiced Latte (PHP 180).

You can go for extra Whipped Cream (PHP 20) or a Shot of Espresso (PHP 45) if you need that extra kick to get you going for the day.

Hiraya Manawari isn’t just your usual cafe that serves the typical coffee and pastry pairing. They also serve an all-day breakfast menu starting at PHP 180 for a Fried Ginger Lugaw, mains starting at PHP 280 for Chicken Inasal, and pasta starting at PHP 270 for Chicken Pesto.

Sandwiches are given the Pinoy twist too, like the Longganisa Burger (PHP 220) with pickled papaya and special sauce in toasted brioche buns.

For the sweet tooth, they have cheesecakes, brownies, donuts, and cookies starting at PHP 65.
