once in a while, cebu surprises you with happy little nooks and crannies that would’ve best been kept a secret if only people stopped talking about it.
but really, for a cafe as tiny as sunday 2pm, it sure is bursting at the seams with books, notes, trinkets, and polaroid pictures left by its customers as proof that once upon a happy time, they were there.
not to be outdone, girly and i had to have our autograph there too. because that’s the whole point of going there, i think — to leave a part of you behind for others to find.
no, wait, that sounded too vain. the WHOLE point of going there? two things: chocolate toast and iced caramel macchiato. because trust me, they will make you want to come back. or you can use them as an alibi to check if your precious autograph is still there. either way, you’ll always want to come back.
the cafe has about a thousand books on its shelves. i saw a couple of my favorites over there but girly and i were too busy chatting and/or reading the post-its on the wall that we didn’t have time to bother browsing over the literary works just within our reach. the post-its were much more interesting. who the hell is alex?!
because sunday 2pm is owned by a korean national who finds sundays at 2pm the most relaxing time and day of the week, expect korean music to fill the room. don’t worry, they usually play the happy ones. it was where i first heard this song and found it catchy. it’s not korean, though, but if you listen to it, it’s definitely the kind of vibe the cafe is going for.
