Café Maru, a coffee shop with a cute Korean concept.

A lovely motto written on the wall

フィリピンの有名大学「サン・カルロス大学」タランバン校の近くにある韓国人経営の喫茶店です。店内は韓国風にアレンジされていて、日本の喫茶店にも似た 雰囲気があります。小さな可愛いいぬいぐるみやアクセサリーで飾りつけされた店内は明るい色が使われていてアットホームで落ち着ける場所を提供していま す。特に女性に好まれる雰囲気が好印象です。

The coffee shop is managed and owned by a young Korean girl. And it’s located near a popular university in Cebu known as the University of San Carlos. The interior of this coffee shop is inspired from a Korean style of designing. Designed and arranged proudly by the Korean owner herself!

This kind of seating is unusual in Cebu

The Icecream waffle that I ordered


“Maru” is a Korean word which means “wooden floor” in English. In Japanese, it means “Ita no ma”. Koreans and so does the Japanese have it in their culture, they practice sitting on a wooden floor. And so they also added this interesting concept into this coffee shop, and set up an area where costumers can also enjoy this kind of culture. And thus, this is how this coffee shop also got its interesting name.

They prepared games and puzzles for guests to play

My sister drew pictures on the tissue
