MARRIOTT GRAND BALLROOM: THE SWEET DETAILS OF CREMA

For once in a blue moon, I lounge at coffee shops sans the coffee.

In a not so ordinary Saturday, I will be sharing the table with my childhood friends in a sophisticated set-up of an upscale gourmet coffee shop.

We were seated at one of the famed dining shops of the newly opened Marriott Grand Ballroom across the Marriott Hotel – Crema Restaurant.

Crema Restaurant’s ambiance is conducive for short meetings, a tete-a-tete, a quick break and chat with friends.  Interiors are kept simple which makes the dining experience relaxed.  Spaces of dining tables provide the much needed privacy though the deafening silence of the hallways inevitably makes you overhear the next tables’ conversation.

THE SMOOTHIES (PHP220.00)
No one in the group ordered coffee.  All are for chillers. 

We had my god daughter with us who enjoyed the interiors of the coffee shop running and hopping from one table to another.  The shop is child-friendly and definitely advisable for the entire family.  The spacious and well-lit interiors can make you loiter for hours which was actually our case.

Cakes, bread, sandwiches and pastries were the main offerings of the shop.  Serving is actually huge that it is best to be shared.  We had a variety of orders so we can taste almost all the culinary masterpiece of Crema Coffee Shop.  No duplication of orders.

I am not a fan of cheesecakes but their version is actually good that I cannot taste its sourness, more so that it is topped with fruits.

CHEESECAKE (PHP270.00)
A chocolate cake will always be my favorite.  But their Flourless Chocolate Feuilletine is a standout.  I remember tasting the same at Four Seasons Hotel Macau and it was consumed on a number of saucers.  The cake is coated by hazelnuts that we associate with the famed Ferrero.

FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE FEUILLETINE (PHP250.00)
With the serving size and the cozy ambiance, we were more than satisfied and full.  And just when we were about to leave, we were informed that there is a complimentary yogurt.

The yogurt comes with a choice of syrup and toppings.  Just like cheesecake it is the least that I would order for dessert or snacks.  But the willing exception is Crema’s yogurt. 


The coffee shop experience seemed like a full course meal.  Crema on one afternoon was a perfect treat for us.  A great rendezvous for a birthday celebration of one of my friends and an instant reunion with childhood friends back in my hometown.
