Lunch at PRESS CAFEMonday, July 29, 2013
Press Cafe. A cafe inside a bookstore.
After our Parque Espana staycation, Gin treated us for lunch at Press Cafe in Alabang Town Center.
Since it is located inside a bookstore, the modern interiors speaks of its name. The restaurant is filled with decorative books.
