Delivering a surprising brand of hip to Dipolog City, the brightly colored and kitschy Chapters Book Cafe is a welcome sight in the city’s seaside boulevard. Enter the Instagram-friendly interiors and you’ll come face to face with an assembly of milk tea concoctions and light snacks that are, while not exactly enough for a full meal, cheaper than any milk tea shops almost anywhere else. The usual milk tea flavors are here – Winter Melon, Belgian Vanilla, Jasmine, and so on – but they’re served in mason jars when meant to be drunk inside the store.

The store itself practically begs for a lengthy stay, with the pretty interiors resembling a teenage girl’s bedroom and anchored on the classic novel “The Little Prince” providing a relaxing setting, coupled with the nice ocean view outside. A lot of books hang by the ceilings and a few inspirational quotes pepper the walls and tables.

If you want some munchies along with your sugary drinks, the store also offers some light snacks that range from pastries to pizzas. The Silvanos in particular are four small sweetened rolls served with bacon spread.
