Siesta Horchata Cafe: Metro’s First Go-To Spot To Get Your Horchata Fix

This new gem brings in the Mexico feels with its unique Horchata drinks

Filipinos’ love for coffee shops has flourished in many parts of the Philippines, especially in its capital region. From the many variants of coffee to matcha, and fruit beverages, fresh concepts are yet to shoot for the potential of another flavor craze.

Horchata is a traditional Mexican specialty infused with rice and cinnamon—a combination that creates a just amount of sweetness.  

Meanwhile, siesta is the Spanish word for nap or rest. It is also a cultural practice that Filipinos adapted during the Spanish period.
