The original franchise of Bo’s Coffee Club in Davao is at SM City. It’s on the ground floor of the mall, right in the middle of the walkway and near the atrium. This makes for a good vantage point for people-watching. :)
There are now two Bo’s Coffee Club outlets in Davao, but what I appreciate with the first one is their consistency. From the time they opened a few years ago and up to now, their coffee has always tasted the same. They brew their coffee rather strong (even their Americano), but I love the flavor. It’s rich and envigorating — just don’t take it in the afternoon if you’re the type whose sleep is affected by caffeine!
It can get pretty noisy there, especially when the mall is bustling with shoppers, so Bo’s at SM isn’t a very ideal place for relaxing. But if you don’t mind the racket, and because you’re out to grab that perfect mug of cappuccino or latté, spending an hour or so at Bo’s can be rather rewarding gastronomically. Ask for their durian pie!
If Blugre Café boasts of concocting Davao’s first durian cappuccino — and it’s good too — Bo’s at SM can brag about their durian pie. It’s to die for! Believe me, I’ve had quite a few converts already.
The other Bo’s Coffee Club is on F. Torres St. It’s a bigger place, in its own building — well, sharing it with Krua Thai restaurant, Metro Lifestyle Fitness and Bahia Spa. I don’t know if they serve durian pie there as well (probably not), but both shops serve excellent pastries.
A friend of mine told me recently that somebody had found this blog and remarked that it’s filled with coffee shop reviews. Well, I hope you can stand a few more of those — Davao is brimming with cafés, and I just love my brews! :)
