To fit everybody on the waiting list, it may close earlier than usual on some days because of the long queue.

When is the very best time to visit?

Weekdays, late afternoon, in time for the sunset as well as dinner.

Here’s the view of the sunset when we visited.

Weekdays, since there has a tendency to be a surge of clients on weekends.

Late afternoon, since the view of the sunset right here is spectacular, to state the least. The cafe overlooks Metro Manila as well as the rich greenery in between. It’s likewise breathtaking under the sun as well as in the evening, however it is during the shift from day to night that it gets magical, when the setting sun paints the skies with pink, purple, as well as orange. This will let you appreciate the view during the day, at sunset, as well as at night.

That said, many clients are likewise after the exact same thing so expect more people.

If visiting on a weekend or holiday, are available in the morning, before lunchtime, as well as after lunchtime. By the way, Saturday night is acoustic night.

Do I requirement a reservation?

As of writing, Kaulayaw does not accept reservations.

Prior to our visit, we contacted them however were told that they only accept walk-ins.

We hope they reevaluate accepting reservations on peak days. more on that later.

How long is the waiting time for a table?

That depends upon the day as well as time of your visit.

The personnel mentioned that it usually doesn’t take long on weekdays, particularly on dead hours like 3 to 5pm. however if you see on a weekend, expect to wait long. In our case, we waited 1.5 hours. We visited on a Saturday, shown up at 4:30 pm, as well as we got seated at 6 pm.

Here’s exactly how to get a seat, based on our personal experience.

Upon arrival, approach the personnel by the door as well as get listed. On hectic days, expect to see a long queue. However, don’t mind the line yet. Go directly to the personnel as well as indication up. That’s the “queue” that matters. If you autumn in line very first as well as you don’t get listed, they will never phone call your name.

Once listed, wait on your name to be called. On lean days, this shouldn’t take as well long. however on weekends, this can take over an hour. utilize this idle time to utilize the restroom, inspect out the menu online, as well as fill out the forms. There are two waiting areas: one inside as well as one outside. The one outside is arranged like a queue, which is why first-timers promptly autumn in line without getting listed.

Once called, comply with the personnel to your assigned table. Kaulayaw is housed in a three-story building as well as each floor is quite wide. The personnel will ask you if you’re okay with the table. You can decline if you don’t like it, however you’ll wait a bit longer for the next table to free up. Note, however, that regardless of your table, you are free to approach the edge at any type of time for a much better view.

When we arrived, there was already a quite long queue developing in front of the building. There was a personnel member by the door. We fell in line as well as waited for our turn.

When we lastly reached the door after a long time of queueing, we realized that the physical queue does not matter at all. One has to get listed to be called. We didn’t understand this — there were no indications about this as well as the personnel never reminded the people on the line. We ended up waiting even longer.

We hope they reevaluate accepting reservations (even with an appointed length of time) on weekends as well as holidays, particularly during the pandemic. It’s just more effective as well as a great deal safer. This will prevent wasting customers’ time, crowding at the waiting area, as well as exposure.

Are youngsters allowed?

No. quoting the FB page statement published on January 13, “A gentle reminder, guests ages 15 as well as below are not enabled as well as will not be accepted in the cafe for everyone’s safety.”

While we were waiting, there was somebody who wished to dine however with youngsters as well as they were told that they might not accept them, so it is being implemented (at least when we were there).

How to get to Kaulayaw Coffee?

Kaulayaw Coffee is found at 23 Sumulong highway in Barangay Santa Cruz along Antipolo ridge.

From Manila, the most practical as well as safest choice is to go there by personal car. utilize Google Maps or Waze to guide you. one of the landmarks is Starbucks The Ridge, found near Kaulayaw on the exact same side of the road.

The location is likewise prominent among bikers/riders.

Is there a auto parking area?

Yes, however slots run out fast, especially on weekends.

We handled to get a auto parking slot at a vacant great deal between Kaulayaw as well as Starbucks. other cars and trucks parked in front of other establishments or on the side of the road. There are auto parking boys who will help you. auto parking charge is P50.

Where is the very best area inside Kaulayaw?

The better to the edge / balcony, the better.

But at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter much since regardless of which area you are seated in, you can still approach the edge of the balcony at any type of time while you’re there.

All three levels have open area areas that function as viewing decks. The very first level is under building when we visited, the second level has a balcony, as well as the third level appears like a veranda. We were seated on the third level against the wall opposite the viewing area, however we still enjoyed the view from our table.

Vil du foreslå det?

For visningen, ja!

For øl såvel som Kombucha, er det en mere faktisk for os. Vi bestilte Ginger samt Lemon Kombucha, Hibiscus Blueberry Kombucha, samt Alcalde Pale Ale.

Hvad angår den bryggede kaffe, nød Vins sin Hot Kaulayaw specialblanding (medium stege).

Fødevarer er dog en historie. Vi bestilte Alpas (Buffalo Poultry Wings), Fjerkræ Satay med stegt æg & peanut sauce, grill svinekød ribben med stegt æg samt Bahaghari (Nachos Supreme). Selvom de var velsmagende, kunne meget af det, der blev serveret til os, udnytte nogle mere madlavningstid, især fjerkrævingerne. Enhver form for anden tid, vi ville have sendt dem tilbage til køkkenområdet, der skal koges længere, men vi løb tør for tid. Det var potentielt bare en engangs såvel som vi var bare uheldig. Det var ikke så meget af et problem for os, da vi ikke var der for maden, til at begynde med.

Men kom til udsigten såvel som drikkevarer! Jeg vil gerne vende tilbage såvel som bringe et par af mine andre venner.
