Sunday is family day! It has always been our family tradition to go to church and to dine out on Sundays. Right after going to church, I and my family went to Figaro Coffee located in Salawag, Dasmarinas. It’s near Royal Tips Premium Lounge. At first, I’m quite hesitant because it’s 6 km away from our house but my brother told me that they have an app. We can order ahead of time.
What’s inside Figaro Coffee Dasmarinas?
They have tables for one, for two, and for a group of people. Their interior is mainly yellow, brown, and orange in color.
They also have a private Meeting Room on the second floor. It looks so classy and elegant. It’s perfect for company meetings. I thought I was inside a hotel.
Another thing that caught my attention is the awards and merchandise corner. They received various awards like quality assurance, best practice, and even latte art! Impressive!
How’s the food?
We ordered some pasta, salad, and a sandwich. I was surprised because the serving size is bigger than what I expected.
For pasta lovers, they have Pasta Ala Carlo (P235), Italian Meatballs Bolognese (P235), and Gourmet Spanish Chorizo Pasta (P285). My little sister loves the 100% beef meatballs! I tried it and I’m pleased with the taste of tomatoes. On the other hand, my brother told me that the Gourmet Spanish Chorizo Pasta tastes good but it has too much oil. I explained that Olive oil is one of the main ingredients that makes it flavorful.
In the menu, they have salads like Mexicani Taco Salad (P225), Asian Chicken Salad (P210), and Greek Roka Salad (P219). My mom ordered the Chicken Caesar Salad (P225). I would say that it is high quality compared to the usual Caesar Salad that we eat in Pizza Hut or S & R. Besides the crisp greens, they are generous in the serving of grilled chicken, bacon bits, and walnuts! The Parmesan cheese and the dressing makes it more delicious.
For sandwiches, they have BLT Croissant Sandwich (P225), BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich (P280), Gourmet Spanish Chorizo Burger (P290), Chicken Waldorf Sandwich (P225), and Figaro Club Croissant Sandwich (P225). I ordered the BBQ Pulled Pork and it didn’t disappoint me. The Batard bread is toasted well. The pork is flavorful, tender and easy to chew. I think it’s the best meal among all the food we ordered.
Okay, let’s not forget the coffee because it’s a coffee shop! Hahaha! To be honest, only my dad drinks coffee in the house. If we drink coffee, we make sure it’s a cold one. Besides the basic hot and cold drinks, they also have specialty hot and drinks (if you want latte art). They have frappes: coffee-based and non-coffee. Among the drinks we ordered, I like the Wild Strawberries and Choco Chips Java the most. Next time, I’m going to try their best seller, Banana Caramel Blast.

I and my family had a great time at Figaro Coffee Dasmarinas. The ambiance is very modern and chic. They also have air-conditioning and WiFi. It’s great for meet ups!
Another thing that can make me go back there is the staff. They are very polite and accommodating. I also like that they are neat.
