Pour good vibes into your 2021 cup by giving Charlie’s Cup a visit.
Charlie’s Cup is a roadside nature cafe hanging by the cliffs of Balamban. This treehouse-esque chill destination has a great unobstructed view of the verdant mountains and a very soothing breeze to complement the views.
Additionally, the combination of wood, metal, and glass gives a very clean and charming look that blends well with nature despite its modern architecture. A couple of trees sprout from under the wood panels and shoot forth into the open where the sun shines brightly. All of these elements put together creates a simple and rustic vibe that’s both pleasant and extremely comforting to the soul.
As the sun sets, Charlie’s Cup creates a different kind of scenery that’s equally charming and relaxing. At night time, the cafe illuminates the dark mountainside with lanterns that are hanging on the branches of the trees. It creates a different kind of charm but still makes the cafe relaxing and comforting.
Charlie’s Cup isn’t just a tambayan for friends and family. It’s a place where fur parents may gather as well to let their fur babies meet other pets and owners. In fact, the cafe was actually named Charlie which is the treasured fur baby of the owner so rest assured that Charlie’s Cup is also designed with pets in mind. Kids also have their own small corner where they can play and mingle with other kids. It’s open and very visible so parents can easily see if their kids are doing okay.
Charlie’s cup is your go-to cafe if you like spending a portion of your time just staring and appreciating mountain views and thinking about life. They serve the typical cakes and coffee that every standard cafe has but the mesmerizing natural views of Cebu makes it a must visit.
