For one, it has steady Wi-Fi.
With the rise of small coffee shops in the Metro, it’s hard to pick out the quiet spaces from the “chikahan” coffee shops. We know the struggle is real when you desperately need to finish that paper and you don’t have a decent internet connection at home or you have to plug in your laptop and there are no sockets available. Good thing, there are new spaces in the metro where you can get some work done and have a few cups of good coffee and homemade meals while you’re at it.
We welcome United Coffee with open arms to the Kapitolyo neighborhood. It could be a little harder to find but nonetheless, here are 8 legitimate reasons why United Coffee is your next hipster and much-needed COFFICE.
Closed for now
United Coffee is a third wave coffee shop in Pasig and is one of Kapitolyo’s newest best kept secrets. They serve a variety of caffeinated drinks, hot plates, and pastries to cater to your working/coffee session needs. According to United, “every coffee bean has a story to tell.”
United is located at a hip compound where all the restaurants are inside converted shipping containers. You’d be surprised at how spacious these restos are!

There’s FREE (and reliable) Wi-Fi
