Refinery at Rockwell


I don’t know if Refinery is a café, or a bar; maybe a coffee bar? Yes? Either way, it is a cool hangout place for those who want to talk over a coffee while eating pasta or sandwich. And if you like to drink vodka or cocktail in mid-afternoon, Refinery at Rockwell is the place to be. They offer different concoctions, wine, cocktails and coffee.

I must say, Refinery is really for Pinoy coffee connoisseurs because they take its coffee seriously. You can choose how you want them brew your coffee. They have Chemex, Syphon and Sowden. Pretty fancy?! Maybe I can appreciate the different brewing process of it sometime but not now! Don’t complicate my obsession with coffee.


It was dusk when we visited Refinery. While waiting for the orders I enjoyed drinking coffee and crack some jokes with my friends. My friend let me tried Black Velvet and Mocha Java. I forgot which has the lighter taste. But still I enjoyed both! I really love gossiping over a cup of coffee while smoking.

I really enjoyed their coffee and food here! It’s a treat for coffee addicts out there. The location is really perfect for those who just want to hangout within the metro but still has this cozy ambiance. Price-wise, their brunch meals are really affordable for the amount of serving and their taste. The artisanal coffee prices are reasonable! Hey, they have their own mixologist to make your drinks extra special. I would bring my other friends here, I’m pretty sure they’ll love this place.
