More Than Just A Coffee Shop | Dark Specialty Coffee

I usually pass by this restaurant whenever I go to SM North. The ambiance is like a laid-back neighborhood cafe where you can make a stay for a short break while drinking your favorite coffee or eating a piece of cake. Then, one day, I’ve got a chance to check it out and try some of their specialties. Say hello to Dark Specialty Coffee.

Dark Specialty Coffee is situated inside the Onesimus store because they are under the same owner. They are promoting local agri-business by sourcing out their coffee beans from Benguet and cacao tablets from Davao.

Flat White (P130) and Cafe Mocha (P160)

Their coffees are best paired with their freshly-baked cookies. We got to try flavors like Cherry Dark (P60), Chocolate Chip (P55), Cranberry White Chocolate (P55), and Dark and White (P55). Among all, the latter stood out! Sweet and gooey.

If you like a little sweeter than cookies, you can also check out their moist-y cakes. Every flavors were light, savory, sweet, and flavorful. I prefer to pair this with their line of cold drinks. We tried the Cream Cheese Melt Cake (P135), German Chocolate Cake (P125), Carrot Cake (P165), and Red Velvet (P145). The German Chocolate Cake was my fave as it had the same taste like the sweet coconut dessert + chocolatey goodness of the cake.

Aside from the sweets, they also offer handcrafted Pocket Pitas infused with fresh and nutritious malunggay leaves. These pocket full of goodness have exotic spices together with fresh onions and bell pepper. The flavors are Chicken Fajitas (P155), 3 Mushroom Fajitas (P155), and Beef Fajitas (P165). The Chicken Fajitas was surprisingly good! One bite was oozing with flavors.

Now, for the cold drinks, they have a wide variety of choices in which you can actually pair them up to their food. Aside from the coffee-based, they also have refreshingly good choices that would totally cleanse of your palate. They served us the following: Matcha Green Blended (P170), Toasted Coconut Caramel Blended (P170), Iced Cafe Mocha (P175), Lemongrass Peach Pear (P150), and Over Iced Traditional Chocolate (P160).

I loved everything that we tried in Dark, not to mention that this cafe is not overrated which means that it isn’t overcrowded with folks. If you are looking for a place for classy tambayan, you may opt to choose Dark. Trust me, you’ll also love the food as much as the ambiance here.
