It looks like a fun, festive day over at Cafe Claus, the first Christmas themed cafe in the heart of Quezon City. This is the brainchild of Kapuso star Ken Chan and his partners. Cafe Claus is located in front of Tandang Sora Bayan Palengke along Tandang Sora Avenue. It also is the space formerly occupied by HBC Tandang Sora (which closed down during the pandemic). Ken wants this to be a home away from home, to make sure you feel the spirit of Christmas.
Ken says “The longest Christmas celebration is in the Philippines and honestly, there’s no Christmas themed cafe in the Philippines. Here in Cafe Claus, it’s going to be Christmas all day. When you go here, you forget about your problems, your worries, and you get to have more hope, positivity, and lots of things that remind you of Christmas. This is my first cafe, it’s always been a dream. I told my Dad that I wanted to have one because I love to put up businesses, I also love to eat.”
The restaurant is also releasing seasonal paper cups (and parts of the proceeds of their sales) aimed to raise
money for charitable organizations that they plan to support. Aside from
that, they also accept toys for kids and have special boxes for it.
They have different items on the menu which are also Christmas themed, I
would suggest you try Myrrh (mushroom soup) for your soup, Holy Grail
caesar salad, Cinder Klaus Spinach Cheese Dip, Shrimp Poppers, the
Signature Lasagna called Nollaig shona duit which is Irish for Merry
Christmas, which is part of their 4 pasta dishes, carbonara, pinoy
spaghetti and marinara. They also have Ube Champorado (available in hot
or cold versions), Chicken Pot Pie which they call Gertrud’s Christmas
which is also good to try.
So if you want to have a break, enjoy the Christmas season all year round at Cafe Claus. It's right in front of Tandang Sora Public Market (You can pin HBC Tandang Sora and it should take you there). Congratulations Ken Chan, you're already successful and this venture looks promising!
