10 Reasons You’ll Adore Uke Hub Kafe

Coffee shops are sprouting like mushrooms all over Cebu these days. We have maid and butler cafes, gaming cafes, book cafes, and sports cafes. We even have work space cafes now. Although these cafes all have something unique to offer, we can still say that they are all pretty much the same.

Every once in a while, however, a cafe that succeeds in breaking the mold just pops out of nowhere and demands our attention. I was lucky enough to be able to find one in the lovely little island of Mactan. And my quick visit to the cafe one Sunday afternoon was just pure magic!

Ladies and gentlemen, coffee drinkers or otherwise, here is Uke Hub Kafe and 10 great reasons you’ll enjoy this adorable little nook in Lapu-Lapu City.

1. It Has Great Food and Beverages
