What’s great about evenings, especially a Saturday evening, at SM Southpoint Iloilo is the parade of restaurants lining the wide SM expanse. There is that distinct homey ambiance paired with good music resonating in the open space, healthy eats and mouthwatering finds along with the scent of brewed coffee in almost every corner of SM Southpoint. One Saturday night, we dined at San Jose Cafe.
San Jose Cafe is a haven for coffee and delicious food. It is a proud supporter of local coffee beans and likewise producer of unique coffee blends. The first San Jose Cafe opened a few years back at The Shops at Atria Park District and a new one recently on the ground floor of SM Southpoint.
