Halo Cafe
Drinking Chocnut Coffee @ Green Halo Cafe... (Halo Cafe Menu 1 | 2 | 3 | 4)

Halo is famous for its organic and healthy menu, but it is also infamous for its waiting time of 30 minutes for one's order. It is not that popular among the Cubao eXpo crowd, except for its Chocnut Coffee (P55).
