Let’s face it. When people find out that a celebrity owns a certain business, people have the tendency to flock to it and patronize it. That means publicity, strong recall and of course, strong sales. Great! Unfortunately, this may also work the other way around especially if the products aren’t good, the prices are way too expensive or if the business owners themselves don’t exercise proper customer service.
In the case of Hulak Cafe, however, a business owned by internationally renowned Kagay-anon singer, actor, host and theater actor Mark Bautista, they didn’t disappoint!
Located at the Subida Complex along the South Diversion Road in Taguanao, Hulak Cafe serves breakfast, mains, vegan-friendly breads, cakes, sandwiches, pastas, coffees and juices. It’s a nice, cozy place where you, your family, friends and colleagues can while away the time while indulging in good, affordable food and refreshing drinks. For those who like taking photos for the ‘gram, you’ll like their cute interiors, too!
The second floor offers a nice overlooking view of the river and nature. The seats are comfortable and I can imagine how it’d be nice to spend a lazy late afternoon there until early evening.
There’s also ample parking space, by the way!
Mark Bautista himself was there, too, and you can see just how happy and proud he was about his new business venture. Watch my TikTok below!
HOW TO GET TO HULAK CAFE CDO
- It’s advisable for you to bring your own transportation!
- If you’re coming from Aluba, head towards Barangay Indahag via the diversion road. When you see the sign for Melecia Homes, you’re already near. Subida Complex will be on your right
- If you’re coming from CDO Uptown, head towards Taguanao bridge. When you see the Iglesia ni Kristo church, you’re already near. Subida Complex will be on your left
- If you plan to commute, you can ride a jeepney. Take the Taguanao liner at the terminal at the back of Gaisano Cogon. Please note that the driver usually waits for the jeepney to get full
