The crib that’ll make you crave: Amo Yamie Crib Review

Fed up of your usual cafe spot? Wanted to try something new? Here’s a quick tour for you to my newly discovered cafe (thanks to my Facebook friends), theAmo Yamie Crib Mendiola.<insert fairytale sounds here…> :-pIn a far away land of….. Uhm… Ooooppps… wait, what?! Sorry. Okay. Here it is. :)Located at the heart of the University Belt, Amo Yamie Crib is the now being frequently visited place by students and barkadas. AYC in Mendiola is a franchise of Amo Yamie Crib Coffee and Movie House which had its pioneer branch at Angeles City.

As the name suggests, Amo Yamie Crib will give you the ambiance that you are  in a “crib” or in a friend’s house. For me, it looks like a big two level doll house! Each spot looks like a room which has a center table and pillows.

PictureNow that’s relaxing.



AYC gives you also, the exact thing as its true name means – Amoy Yummy. Everything smells yummy there, sweet and tasty smell of pastries, frappes and shakes.

Now let’s talk about what “amoy yummy” it serves…

While most of the mainstream and well known cafes serve their blended drinks, fruit teas and other drinks using plastic cups or styro cups, Amo uses the seemingly being in the trend nowadays, mason jars. I find it very cute. It adds up to the entire feeling of being at home.


Mason Jar <3
Lots of choices are part of the menu, from hot or iced coffees, fairy tale frappes and frosts, cartoon characters named milk teas down to fruit teas. And yes, the list of drinks will make it hard for you to decide. But thanks to the magical named drink – Once Upon Nutella, at first glance, it  won my heart.  My boyfriend, who always accompany me during my find-your-good-place adventures, chose Berry Boop Fruit Tea.*You get to choose the size of your Milk Tea or Fruit Tea. Choices are:Solo – 16 oz
Twin – two 16 oz of same flavored drinks
Mason – 24 oz

The Amo Yamie Crib is quite a big place. It has other rooms that can accommodate larger groups of people. It also has tables at their veranda overlooking the busy street. Visiting the place gave me a nostalgic feeling. It reminded me of childhood memories of fairy tale happy endings, cute cartoon characters and me playing with doll houses. It’s magical.Along with its budget friendly frappes that is not far from the taste of those served by well known cafes, plus the sandwiches, pastries and others, the Amo Yamie Crib is one of those must-visit place. Where have I been all this time? Hmp. Thanky thanky it’s not even too late. 🙂
