If you love your coffee with a sprinkling of history.

Whenever we hear the word Binondo, we tend to immediately think about authentic Chinese cuisine. That said, a posh café situated along the busy streets of Chinatown is not exactly the first thing that comes to mind.

But the 1919 Grand Cafe, owned by a food-loving Chinese businessman, has given fine dining a whole new meaning by taking his customers on a journey to the past. This café will be your new favorite go-to if you enjoy good food and coffee, plus a serene ambiance with a sprinkling of history.

Formerly an HSBC bank, the century-old establishment was revived as a one-stop place for people who don't want to go too far away from Manila to experience specialty coffee and food.
