We love finding 'secret' cafes where we can indulge in good coffee while brainstorming.
We recently had the chance to check out Caffeined by Artesania, a nice little nook tucked along Arnaiz Avenue that serves specialty coffee, small plates and gourmet meals. What makes it different than your average cafe is the fact that it's inside the showroom of Artesania Furniture, a local company that makes modern custom-made furniture.
Artesania also showcases other Filipino home and lifestyle brands such as Strange Mercy, Sa Isla, Hima and Saan Saan.

The space is also good for events and we were grateful to be part of the fifth run of Celebrating Gracecfully, a positivity workshop hosted by life coach Kimi Lu and mompreneur and blogger Grace Barbers-Baja aka The Spoiled Mummy held at Artesania in celebration of Independence Day.

If you need a dose of caffeine with a side of design inspiration, Artesania Furniture is good place to get your creative juices going.
