Luna Specialty Coffee Congressman Lino Cayetano’s new baby located at the NAC Tower, 32nd Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig opened just last year. Luna Specialty Coffee aims to be a community coffee shop where one is encouraged to get to know fellow caffeine lovers who frequent the place, with cardboard signs you can choose to place on your table, as either “available” or “taken”. Aside from it being a very quaint, intimate coffee shop with no Wi-Fi (as owners encourage face-to-face conversation), they serve Pinoy food with a twist, like an open-faced flat Longganisa Pandesal, Kare-Kare Tofu, and Corned Beef Tapa. They also serve 100% Pinoy coffee made from local beans.
