According to their website, Elephant Grounds started as in 2013 with two entrepreneurs in pursuit of the perfect cup of coffee and a simple purpose of giving everyone the best cup of coffee with a smile. Recently, they also opened their newest branch in BGC, which is also their first branch outside of Hong Kong.


The interior of the place is spectacular. Focusing on wood furniture and decors with plenty of spaces. There are certain areas to the place where you can talk with friends/colleagues or about business and there are also areas where you can stay by yourself, have "introvert time", not really quiet time since the place can be noisy when there are lots of people. The counter is very modern and we just love the letterboard showing the menu, simple yet sophisticated.
Their menu was also very simple. From the core of the original Elephant Grounds, which offers bread, other breakfast items, and ice cream sandwiches, the BGC branch adds a FIlipino touch to the menu. For their drinks their specialty is coffee but you can also order tea or even beer.

For us, we ordered Iced French Vanilla (Php185.00) and EG Breakfast Rice Bowl (Php390.00).

Although a cafe with foreign roots, their take on the rice bowl is spot on and very similar to our very own Tocino. The EG Breakfast Rice Bowl has bacon steak which is slightly sweet and salty, complimented well by the roasted eggplnt. The fried rice is magnificent with blend of strong but wonderful flavors. Topping it with scrambled egg makes this dish perfect (for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even meryenda).

The coffee is wonderful as well, not too sweet and the milkininess is just right. However, I should've have chosen to order the hot coffee instead since I believe it could have complimented my food better. 

All in all, We just can't wait to go back here with my friends to taste the other dishes, which know will be spectacular as well.
