Food Friday - Sweets by McCafe


Manila has them a long time ago, but Vienna didn't...In line with the renovation of most McDonald restaurants, some have added the McCafe stations too, perhaps as part of the expansion programme for this year.

McCafé launched in Melbourne, Australia in 1993 which reflects a desire for traditional European coffee. It has been indicated that McCafé outlets generated 15% more revenue than a regular McDonalds and by 2003 were the largest coffee shop brand in Australia and New Zealand.

In 2007, the chain expanded to Japan as part of McDonald's efforts to boost sales with healthier soup and sandwich offerings and reach out to new audiences who favored traditional coffee shops. Despite being a relatively small part of McDonald's overall strategy, there are currently 1300 McCafés worldwide.


The cheesecake has pleasant texture, a melt-in-your-mouth-slowly kind of thing. I tried this one out of curiosity and because I haven't had a cheesecake for the longest time =D It was ok for me, perhaps I was looking for additional blueberries.

The chocolate cake (below) was recommended by a friend who frequents the Mccafe in Greenbelt...she said its good especially the icing, which is really a thick frosting. Unfortunately, I find the cake itself lacking if taken without the frosting, still a comfort food for those craving for sweets.

WOW!! I never knew that McCafe exists! We have Mc Donalds here in Saipan, but not McCafe.. I am hoping we will get one soon! I miss premium coffee!
The cakes look delicious! I love Philippines, I have been there last year, and looking forward to going there sometime this year again (hopefully in December!).
