Beautiful and fragrant flowers are a gem especially if you live in the city, where it could get tiring to sniff out not-so-good air quality on a daily basis.

It seems as though the only places you can appreciate their gorgeous petals and lovely smell are in flower shops or flower farms. Not to worry, as flower cafés have been continuously blossoming in various corners of the metro.

There's nothing more soothing than sipping an iced beverage or a hot cup of coffee while surrounded by the colorful sight of flowers and their sweet-smelling fragrance. If you agree, you might want to check out these food spots in Metro Manila where you can get refreshing drinks and be one with nature at the same time.
