Kaffe Kaptan

I have a knack for wonderful and curious things. Out of nowhere, one random summer day. I came across this quaint coffee shop near Mactan Doctor's Hospital that had a freakin' airplane suspended from the ceiling?! How effed up is that?!! I was like :O Drop jaw!

Aside from that, what I loved is that the shop isn't pretentious. Simple, straightforward and utterly crazy engineering! I believe that coffee doesn't have to be hideously expensive to be satisfied and indulged. And yes, this is coming from someone who gets palpitations when sipping coffee. 
Kafee Kaptan as it's called is located at the newest Gaisano Capitol in Lapu-Lapu City. This aviation themed shop opened it's doors last February 18th. Kaptan, a shortened term for Captain is not only does it sound clever, it was an intended pun. ;)

Mind you the plane took 10 people and is fully fastened to the ceiling. Don't worry, the plane which by the way is still functional is secured with the use of amazing engineering that I did not ask for further details. Created with the idea that coffee and pilots were inseparable the place is open for nurses and doctors who wanted to get this fill of that good old caffeinated drink. Non-coffee drinkers can also opt to have milk tea or any of their cold drinks.

They offer the regular hot coffee, cold drinks: iced coffee, blended coffee and flavored iced tea. I settled for the Raspberry Iced Tea while my friend wanted to try their milk tea. They also had pastries supplied from the baker who makes sweet goodies for Waterfront Hotel and homemade cupcakes. I was smitten when I saw Pistachio. In a heartbeat I ordered the Pistachio Eclair. ♥

What I thing of beauty. Sweet, delectable all things made with love. Indulgent without overpowering, the pistachio and white chocolate covered eclair was truly the scene stealer of the whole experience. It was the best Php85 and if I had only Php85 to spend, this would be it! The tea was like any other, tangy and sour perfect for the sweet eclair. The milk tea was... well, I have had far better tasting teas in my life. 

Does your coffeeshop have a Cessna plane? I don't think so.
