Seven years since its opening, “Ella and the Blackbird” had its last day of operations on January 31, 2021. This coffee shop located near Katipunan Avenue was known for its cozy atmosphere, delicious food, and hand-crafted coffee.
Time to go
Ella and the Blackbird was a beloved café that served its customers drinks such as cappuccino, latte, and cold brew. They also had filling meals like pasta and burger, and yummy desserts like macadamia sans rival, frozen brazo, and choco lava.
Sadly, the time for the coffeehouse to permanently close its doors has come.
In a heartfelt post, Ella and the Blackbird shared a video clip with photos of the shop through the years, from its construction in 2013 to recent months.
“2013 was the year we started this journey in a quiet street adjacent to the more busy street, Katipunan Avenue. Surrounded with top notch colleges, this was our very own university,” the post said.
The coffee shop has witnessed many events, from quiet study nights, fun organization events, to big life milestones: “We learned a lot, made friends that we’ll treasure forever, experienced a ton, from jazz night to comedy night to spoken words to engagement proposal to prenup shoots to open mics to even mainstream media. Seven years after opening, we are graduating.”
Thank you for all the food, cups of coffee, and memories, Ella and the Blackbird!
