Our first visit with my boys as Koffie Pauze opens its new home now at 100 Roxas Dormitory.
It’s near the corner of Padre Faura Street where Mang Danny’s ice cream in Davao at the Roxas night market has a long line there. This building is just across that of Chicco Di Caffe in Roxas Avenue.
Koffie Pauze had their grand re-opening last January 8, 2016 at a new location after moving from it’s old home at Palmetto Place in Ma-a.
This is yet our first time at Koffie Pauze ever since they opened in Davao City.
The place was full when we arrived and we didn’t know they were about to close. All tables were taken except one when we went in. Good thing we still got a table which we later shared to a friend when she and her friends came.
I like Koffie Pauze’s new home. They now have a bigger and better coffee shop here at Roxas Avenue. They also have a larger market here with schools like Ateneo de Davao University just a few blocks away.
It has more space even small function rooms which I will take photos of when we go back there. Those two rooms which can accommodate 13 to 16 people are for small private functions like simple business meetings, get together parties among friends, group study or even a simple gathering of friends over coffee drinks and food.
They also have a loft for more space to accommodate more customers. The stairs behind the shelf leads to the loft which is above one enclosed section of the coffee shop.
Their loft section has a more comfortable set-up for groups of people or friends to sit, chat, and enjoy Koffie Pauze’s food and drinks while reading, working, studying, chatting, or simply chilling out or hanging out with friends. They also have books that you can read while you’re there.

They have a message board at the loft which they call Wall Post. Will try to post something there on our next visit…
My friend Honey invited me last month to the re-opening of Koffie Pauze in their new location. Her cousins Shine and Melody are running the family business, Koffie Pauze. I found out there are more cousins involved in the business that her cousin Shine’s mom owns.
I missed the grand opening event so I brought my boys there for dinner the night after. Their kitchen was already closed as they closed at 9PM which was early than most of us expected on a weekend. Anyway, they will be back to their longer regular coffee shop hours this week. So we stayed awhile as they were about to close while we just tried one of their drinks and availed of their grand re-opening promo.
We availed of the buy 1, take 1 promo on their drinks.
We chose their cookies and cream frappe. Their Jo’s Special Koffie blended was not available anymore. Next time…These frappes were good and my little guy enjoyed his drink. Kids and kids at heart will like this drink. It’s one cold, sweet treat to keep us going till we can get late dinner somewhere.
They do have cakes and pastries.
Here is the Koffie Pauze menu board at the counter…

They have a display shelf that divides the coffee shop at the inner sections where you will find the loft above and the small rooms for functions.
This 1st runner-up trophy for the Mindanao Elimination of the Philippine Barista Challenge 2014 was displayed at the coffee shop. I suppose this was won by one of their baristas and I assume could be their cousin Janine, correct me if I’m wrong.
Saw this interesting and nice ‘old couple’ display on the shelf that makes me think and sing in my mind… I wanna grow old with you!
It’s a nice coffee shop to visit among the continuously growing number of coffee shops in Davao. See my previous post of another new coffee shop in town too.
Then before I end this post, may I just say I agree with Koffie Pauze (which is Dutch for coffee break) as what is written on their cute wireless buzzer that…
Everybody deserves a coffee break!
See you… at Koffie Pauze!
