Tucked in the quiet village of Xavierville in the Katipunan area of Quezon City, Nine Three Café is something of a refuge from the hustle and bustle of the main thoroughfare a couple of streets away; cozy and intimate, this quiet nook serves high-quality brews in affordable prices.

As you walk by the few tables dotting the premises, you'll immediately notice its prominent kitchen where you can watch the cafe's team prep your order. We recommend sitting at the bar and chatting with co-owner Taks Arguelles, who enjoys talking about the café’s offerings as much as its card games.

Yes, Nine Café is actually a haven for those who enjoy unwinding with a round (or several) of Magic: The Gathering (MTG). While many cafés start their day quite early in the morning, Nine Three opens its doors at 12 noon, as it caters to players who flock to its tables come late in the afternoon. There are even MTG competitions that you can join, once you think you're good enough.

But if you’re simply there to enjoy a cup of your favorite brew, you won’t feel out of place in Nine Three’s welcoming atmosphere. Here are a few picks that you can try:

Ryan’s Secret Stuff

P150

While you’re left to wonder what brought the name about, this mix of espresso, ice cream, sweetener, and ice will definitely surprise you with its smooth and sweet taste that isn’t at all over-powering.

Nine Three also serves pasta—don’t be fooled by the size of the shallow bowl, though, as one serving can actually serve two people.

Aligue Pasta

P150

This dish is recommended by the Nine Three team, as not only is it filling, but it's also quite flavorful without being nakaka-umay.

Other items in the menu include kombucha (P120), strawberry smoothie (P150), grilled cheese sandwich (P150), and cookies (P80 for three pieces), among others.
