I am back with an entry about a café experience. 😉
Having your selfie printed on top of a drink and/or a dessert? Yes, it is possible! That is what the Selfie Café can offer. It has a special machine on which they use to print your selected selfie. The edible printed selfie is whip cream.
The catch? Well, there’s an additional 20.00 Php fee for having your selfie printed, but you can order drinks and desserts too just the way they are.
The Selfie Café provides a cellphone for the customers who can take a selfie to be printed on their drinks or dessert. Customers can also take a picture using their own cellphones and just share it to the café’s cellphone. The last option is that customers can choose to send any of their old or favorite photos from their phone.

3 as Love it!
Here are the desserts and drink that we have tried and tasted with their respective taste ratings:
- Banana Caramel Selfie Signature Freeze
We ordered the said drink in a “groufie” which is equivalent to 16 oz. As mentioned above, we paid an additional 20.00 PHP so that they can print our selfie on top of this drink. We have decided to order this because JC likes bananas in general, while I love caramel flavors.
Price (as of this writing/blog post): 165.00 PHP + 20.00 PHP
Rating: We were excited to taste the drink since it’s a combination of our favorites. But then, it was disappointing. We couldn’t taste the banana; it was more of a caramel flavored drink with a whip cream on top (the edible printed selfie). So we give this drink a rating of 1.
- Oreo Chocolate Cheesecake
We ordered an Oreo Chocolate Cheesecake as the accompaniment. Surprisingly, their cheesecake turned out to be delicious. No printed selfie on this dessert since it already has crumbled Oreo toppings. We liked this one because it is the creamy and real mouth-watering kind of cheesecake. Although, the crust was thin. If only they were more generous with the crust, but overall, the cheesecake itself is superb!
Price: 120.00 PHP
- New York Cheesecake
I was craving for another one, the prior cheesecake felt “bitin” since JC and I shared it. As a result, we ordered for another cheesecake. We have decided to try this flavor instead. Since this cheesecake is plain, your selfie can be printed on top! Yeap, there was an additional charge again.
We ordered this for takeout though; we wanted to avoid the so called “rush hour”. After arriving, we felt relieved when we saw our selfie still intact and didn’t melt. The taste also creamy If you like taking selfies and eating cheesecakes, get this one!
Price: 100.00 PHP + 20.00 PHP
Besides of the food and beverage, we also have something to say about the:
The mall affects the ambience of the café as it’s only a stall at the middle. This means as the crowd bustles and hustles around, you may find it less peaceful than CBTL, Starbucks or Seattle’s Best.
- Amenities/facility included:
None, since it is just a stall.
Their service is average at best. We find the staff friendly. They were concerned with the results of the printed selfie, the quality of their work. Our first printed selfie looked too orange so they asked us to take another one (without charging us for extra bucks), but we have decided to just use a filter instead to cool down the orange hues and resent the picture.
- Value for Money
The price for their drinks and meals are on the expensive side.
Second Floor, West Wing of Robinsons Galleria
- Overall experience:
- Do we recommend this café?
Yes, for the selfie addicts there!
Maybe, if we will get the chance to be at Robinsons Galleria again (since this café is too far from where we live).
Rheneelyn’s Final verdict:
Visiting this café is ideal for quick meetups and snacks with printed selfies.
JC’s Final Verdict:
Dining here is not advisable as there are more palatable foods available at other cafes—unless you’re a selfie addict, that is.
What to eat (what we recommend based on what we have tried so far):
Oreo Chocolate Cheese cake
New York Cheese Cake
