Mood food plus good books equals great moments at Book and Borders Cafe

Reading is one of my favorite past time, believe it or not, I have survived boredom, coped up with stress during my one year stint working at another country reading Gone Girl and Dark Places by Gillian Flynn alone.  It  helped me through a lot of waiting and lining up paying my utilities, it helps me de-stress and I guess it would helped  me protect my brain from Alzheimer's disease when I hit my 50s and on.

That's why I have been on the lookout for a coffee shop that would help me relax during the weekends with a wide selection of coffee table books, good food and gourmet coffees .  Im glad Book and Borders Cafe from Timog offers both.

The Book and Borders Cafe was launched last July 28 at Sct. Castor, Timog. Present during the launch was the self-confessed book lover ambassador and part owner Ms. Karylle and business partner Benjamin Alves. With guest celebrities, Ariella Arida, Venus Raj and Wyn Marquez.

Book and Borders Cafe serves delicious muffins, breads, cupcakes, pies, tarts, squares, doughnuts, and cakes (Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake), Book and Borders also serves more filling menu options like pasta (Truffle Mushroom Pasta, Tuyo Pasta), sandwiches (Beef Pastrami Panini), even salad and breakfast options. For drinks, there’s coffee of course, in a variety of options, as well as refreshing smoothies for hot days.

Putting together two of your favorite past times, reading and enjoying a cup of coffee, in just one place, newly-opened Book and Borders Cafe is set to become one of the metro’s more popular hangouts.

Charming and inviting, Book and Borders is the latest themed cafe to open in Quezon City, catering to customers who have an appreciation for good books and equally good food and coffee.

Located at 281 Tomas Morato, Quezon City, Book and Borders, unlike other crowded cafes where people are more engaged in chit chat, has purposely turned their space into something that is more relaxed and quiet.

This is because the cafe encourages customers to go through their extensive selection of books, and take their time to hangout or read. In fact, the cafe also makes book stands available for its customers, to make reading their chosen book, much easier.

Complementing the nice ambiance and the library aspect of the cafe are delicious light fare and refreshing drinks.
