Places where you can stop, chill, and take in awesome nature views and fresh air are pretty rare when you live in a metropolitan area. So we're sure you're going to want to take note of this cool spot! Charlie's Cup is a roadside cafe along the cliffs of Balamban, which is about an hour's drive away from Cebu City. Their outdoor dining area has a large deck nestled among treetops, giving you a cool treehouse feel.
We're loving the extra-magical feel from the sun's golden rays. Complete with trees and a sleek, clean, almost rustic feel, we can totally imagine an intimate wedding happening here—or just a simple weekend escape. Best part? The place welcomes pets! Charlie looks to be one of the owner's corgies—no wonder the place is pet-friendly. And it's not just fur babies that are welcome here; there's even a small play area for the kiddies, too.
Charlie's Cup offers a pretty wide menu of caffeinated drinks: You can get a Cappucino (P120), an Americano (P120), and a classic Espresso (P100), and an Iced Latte (P160). Plus, they also offer all-day breakfast, which we think if perfect after a long ride. You can enjoy a bowl of Champorado (P140) or stuff yourself full with their Big Breakfast (P250), which consists of Spam, chorizo, two eggs, and rice.
This outdoor spot is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. You can find them along the left side of the transcentral highway, just before the "Welcome to Balamban" signage. Definitely a spot worth putting on your weekend getaway bucket list!
