Psychedelic Dining Experience at Subspace Coffee House (Ortigas, Pasig City)

Furniture floating overhead makes for one trippy (not to mention, unforgettable!) coffee time at Subspace Coffee House, Emerald Ave., Ortigas.

We’re always on the lookout for the unusual. In this period of coffee shop boom, good coffee and a cozy place just doesn’t cut it anymore. More important than ever is the connection you create with a place and how it leaves an impact on you, making you come back for more. Subspace Coffee House does just that for many geeks, K-Pop lovers, and heavy social media users alike. Not only do they serve delicious coffee and all-day breakfast, but they also whip up mean (read: visually appealing) latte art, making it a preferable rendezvous point not only for people who want to sit down and enjoy great food, but also people who share a passion for creativity.

It’s one of the rare coffee houses where you can walk in and ask for a latte art of your K-pop bias or even obscure K-pop groups and not be given a weird look. Subspace’s baristas know their k-pop, geek, and all kinds of pop culture stuff, and they can respond to any latte art challenge with an awesome latte art that will make your fangirl ovaries explode from happiness. The Purple Potato Latte is their favorite base for their latte art, but there’s also Peanut Butter Latte if your taste buds prefer a more familiar flavor. With the advent of Cookie Butter-infused drinks, Subspace’s own take on the Cookie Butter Milkshake promises an undeniable cookie butter flavor that you should not miss.

“Go big or go home” must be Subspace’s philosophy in committing to deliver this menu comprised of sinfully irresistible items. Their dishes go all out, and they have absolutely no regard for your weight or diet (Diet? What diet?) The heaven-sent 1/2-inch thick Bacon Slab atop a heaping serving of rice, with a garnishing of special mayo on the side, is one of the bestselling dishes, and rightfully so for being so affordably priced at Php 195. The Truffled Mac & Cheese’s mix of oils, herbs, and cheese brings a one-of-a-kind pasta flavor that you have yet to experience. The hefty waffle sandwich underneath the gluttonous serving of mayo comprises the savory Big Bang Waffle. Finally, a green-tea flavored waffle, topped with cream, green tea ice cream, caramel sauce, and chocolate-dipped pretzel sticks, make the Double Green Tea Waffle the dessert choice for matcha lovers.

Apart from the reasons mentioned, stepping into Subspace will make you feel as if you’re in three different places. This is because different areas of the cafe are designed to appear distinctly different from each other. This strategic design allowed the owners liberty to create and decorate without the restraint of following one mood or motif. As for the patrons, this gave them the choice to enjoy their meal and coffee in an environment of their choosing based on mood or preference. Hence, the name Subspace, meaning a space within a space, could not be a more accurate name for the coffee house.

Look who’s hangin’ out at Subspace!

I’d like to recommend Subspace Coffee House to everyone with a passion for good food and equally great coffee, especially K-pop lovers, geeks, and pop culture enthusiasts. It’s one of the very few places wherein you can come as you are and feel understood, and it also does not hurt at all that the food is affordable, and comes in huge servings of sin. This makes Subspace Coffee House more than just a rendezvous point– it’s a place where passion and creativity come together.-HANA
