In my heart and in my gut, I instantly fell in love with Tata Benito's, not the grandfather that this coffee shop was named after but with the numerous drink concoctions they offer and detectable dishes you can enjoy whenever you dine. Why wouldn't you, when the name itself suggests pure love - Tata Benito's A Whole Latte Love.

A mug of Green Tea Latte for only Php120.

Every cup is brewed with nothing but simplicity and the pureness of love. Hot and Cold coffee-based drinks abound. Have a steaming mug of Irish Cappuccino, Caramel Machiatto or just a shot of Espresso. Under the Cold Coffee banner, Iced drinks range from Latte, Raspberry and Almond Mocha. While their blended beverage choices are as fancy as Caramel Freeze, Strawberry Cheesecake, Mochaccino and Buttercrunch Mocha. They also offer non-coffee drinks like St. Paddie's Steamer, Chai Latte and Green Tea Latte (Php120) which I got to try during my visit. I am not much of a green tea drinker, but Tata Benito's A Whole Latte Love's version is actually quite interesting, it's refreshing and frothy.

Pizzaz Bites can be shared with your someone special.

Unlike some popular Metro-based coffee shops, Tata Benito's A Whole Latte Love Coffeeshop offers an array of savory bites, from Crepes like Apple Crepe and Apple Cinnamon Crepe, Pasta like Carbona, Bolognese and Three-Cheese Penne, Sandwiches such as Bacon Lettuce and Tomato, Clubhouse and Benito Bacon and Egg Sandwich. A good plate to share with a friend, but as for my case, I shared it with my beau during our visit, is their Pizza - Pizzaz Bites at Php120 is served on their Keramos ceramic plate with about 12 pieces of crunchy french bread slices with a spread of tomato-based sauce and a strip of cheese. This dainty snack is a great fill while sipping your brew.

Tata Benito's A Whole Latte Love Coffeeshop is owned by a young and kind-hearted Davaoeña, Gel Marcial who also dabbles into clothing business. The coffee shop is quite strict with their no tipping policy.
