We were told that all good things must come to an end. This is exactly what we feared about the Magnum Cafe.
Can you still remember that year when most kids would Instagram their Magnum rappers just because? Blame it on hype, blame it on extreme commercialism…but hey…one cannot deny the fact that the Magnum Bar tastes absolutely incredible!
Thus, the birth of the Magnum Cafe at the 5th Flr. SM Aura Premier, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City. It was Father’s Day when we came to check the place out and as expected, there was a long queue for dessert.
When we were finally seated and provided the menu, another challenge befell us. Everything is absolutely a feast for the eyes, and I’m guessing, to the stomach too! It was a tough choice but we managed to agree that no one should get the same offer to be able to take advantage of different flavors! Smart eating, I know!
My sister ordered the Pink Friday since she is madly in love with anything strawberry. It was a combination of strawberry cheesecake, the actual fruit, Magnum, and strawberry Nerds–the candy! Cool!
Our youngest ordered Red Velvet wherein the Magnum is served with a moist red velvet cake, dark chocolate sauce, and cream cheese. My regrets that I wasn’t the one who ordered it…
Since I adore apples, I chose Apple Pie and wolfed on the contrasting, yet interestingly yummy, hot apple pie topped with Magnum and warm caramel sauce. I remembered how mouthwatering the dish is just reading it right off the menu!
Our parents decided that they would go for Fondue for Two which is a very good choice since they get to have fruits, cakes, brownies, pistachios, plus 2 Magnums. It was well worth the price paid!
What we sincerely appreciated during our visit was their special treat for the dads. They gave a cup of ice cream with a note etched on chocolate which says “Happy Dad’s Day!” It was very cute and you can tell that even if it was a very busy day for the staff, they took their time and ensured every dad got his treat.
Unfortunately, the Magnum Cafe in SM Aura already closed. There’s no forever when we’re talking about beautiful things…However, in every ending is a new beginning. I was thrilled to find out that Magnum Cafe is now on SM Mall of Asia!!!
Located at the 2nd Flr. Main Wing Mall of Asia, right across Uniqlo, the new Magnum Cafe promises to continue the legend…
I honestly can’t wait to visit!!!
