Everything is Korean! Except for the coffee, that is. Along Friendship Highway in Angeles, amidst all the Korean establishments that have sprouted in that area within the last two years, there’s a coffee shop called Cafe Dia where people seem to flock to. After visiting, it’s completely understandable why. Cafe Dia has a very homey atmosphere which is spacious and they serve coffee and desserts all day, starting with breakfast.
Their doors bring in people from various walks of life. There are young families with their small kids in tow, business people having meetings, middle-aged women out for lunch and students buried in textbooks. It really seemed like the shop had everyone covered, whether it’s a hearty breakfast or a good cup of coffee, maybe paired with a pastry or everyone’s favorite Korean dessert — bingsu! There’s something for everyone to enjoy. It’s no wonder that the shop is almost always packed. Even their outdoor seats are occupied.
We enjoyed Cafe Dia very much. We stayed a little longer here because it really is such a pleasant space to chill. Anybody who finds themselves in that part of town, whether you’re from Angeles, Clark, or just pass there on your road trips, Cafe Dia is a more than ideal place for a coffee break or a pitstop (they have nice and clean bathrooms too!). You too might actually also end up staying a little longer than planned!
