SM Mall of Asia has been my go-to mall for several years now. I have strolled inside its main atrium, explored its entertainment mall, and enjoyed the scenic sunset at the San Miguel by the Bay. However although I have dined countless times at different restaurants and chilled at various cafés, there are a lot of food and beverage establishments that I often pass by but have ignored. One of them is Bo's Coffee which I have been meaning to try for quite a while already.
Bo's Coffee is located in SM Mall of Asia's entertainment mall, beside the hard-to-miss activity area, and in front of Dolce Gelato -- one of my ultimate favorite Gelato stalls. So for the 4 years I have been going to MoA, it's funny how I have never tried Bo's Coffee.. Not until now.
It was last Friday that we got to try Bo's Coffee. We were in the area waiting for the start of Lee's National Denim Day for Philippine Fashion Week. And what can people who came 2 hours earlier do? Yes, chill first and let time pass in a coffee shop.

We paid for the drinks first and sat comfortably on their couch. And when the drinks and our change were served, it came with a Halloween cookie. Apparently, they were having a Halloween promo from October 22 to November 5 -- complimentary cookie for a minimum P250 single-receipt purchase.
Both my date and I enjoyed the drinks we ordered. I very much liked the clean and refreshing taste of their Passion Fruit Iced Tea. It was tangy yet sweet. My date found his Chocolate Chip Froccino Primo rich and a chocolate-y blend of coffee, although he still finds The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf's ice blended coffee better. The Halloween cookie was quite good, except for the overly sweet hard candy frosting though. We don't need to complain, I know, it's free anyway.

Although we have only tried 2 items from Bo's Coffee's wide menu of beverages, we can say that they are faring well taste-wise. Prices of their drinks are also reasonable -- about a hundred bucks for a large cup of iced drink. The staff in the shop were also friendly and accommodating. They helped us choose what drinks we might like from their beverage selection. Lastly, they have a nice and cozy interior perfect for people who wants to kill time, as well as those who would hangout and catch up with friends.
Overall, we had a pleasant time at Bo's Coffee -- a shop I'll never dare ignore the next time we visit the area.
