This beats any chichi café in the metro on any given day—given its free wi-fi and spacious tabletops, it’s the type of ambience that makes (creative) work, a total pleasure. When in San Juan, drop by the Flotsam and Jetsam Café for a taste of the surf life.
Ragged details dress down the café’s surroundings to give its guests a nomadic vibe.
Working with a minimalist menu may be a good thing. The café spread prides itself on hefty servings, quality taste, and top-grade freshness! Some of their leafy ingredients are delivered fresh from Baguio (which is more or less an hour away).
Brace yourselves for some food porn.
TRY: the After-Surf Burger (w/ some salad and fries on the side) — P190
If you feel it’s a bit pricey, TRUST ME: you will be getting every bang for your buck!
Ever had a meal at an expensive restaurant, then felt bad about it because they skimped on the serving, or the seasoning? NOT THIS ONE. The fare is reasonably priced because FlotJet won’t cheat you when it comes to serving the good stuff—generously. Its flavorsome dishes top the bar on my tummy scale! NOMNOMNOM.
This sinfully rich dish of Carbonara (P220) was the ultimate pasta-dream. When it comes to my foodstuff, I love all things white and creamy. :)
It’s a different story come dusk. Poison rules the scene when this quaint café transforms into a seaside watering hole. With its creatively concocted catalog of the hard stuff, FlotJet will make you appreciate home brew like a fine art.
Try a refreshing sangria to cool you off on our tropic nights.
My friend, Lougee Basabas enjoying her drink while relishing her alcohol-ed sesh with the tapster.
Meet Kuya Glenn: resident mixologist and FlotJet spin artist. He loves to mix it up a little: try alcohol with an inspired twist.
Taste his artisan mixture, the Spicy Nikki—a combination of Gin, lychee, homemade rose petal syrup, lots of ice, and a dash of Siling Labuyo.
Yes, you heard me right! Adding a spicy kick ‘sili-style' translates to Pinoy fusion at its finest. Have a drink or two so you can truly soak up the IT'S MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES mood.
I’m a little hung over, but I’ll drag myself out of bed to wake up to this! It’s a shame how people get up past 9 am on beach trips. I love the morning sun (and surf)!
Come breakfast, the atmosphere shifts back to its sprightly disposition. With FlotJet’s morning spread set in such a Pinterest-worthy manner, you won’t regret having cut your shuteye short.
Go beyond the kitchen area: drop in on the FlotJet life to see why love is in the island details.
