Coffee & Serendipity Photo Journal #2: Ryuma Coffee Shop, Davao City

One Saturday a few weeks ago, my sister and I decided to try the Korean restaurant which was nearer to our place. The food was good. Some were even better than those served in a go-to Korean place we’ve tried the previous week.

After finishing our meal, my sister insisted on checking out some stuff in a Japanese grocery store located a few meters away from the restaurant. It was then that we noticed a coffee place two or three shops down.

From the outside, there was nothing that suggested that Davao City‘s Ryuma Coffee Shop was any different from the many other cafes strewn around town. The only thing that really captured my attention was the signage saying it’s a Japanese coffee shop. Since I’m addicted to anything Japanese, it didn’t take long for my sister to convince me to check out the place.

Coffee wasn’t part of that Saturday’s plans, but I figured I could make room for a Japanese coffee shop experience.

The coffee shop’s second floor lounge ~ loved how it was quiet and cozy. A good place to spend some time alone or with family and friends.

Ebony and ivory ~ a reversal of roles
Seeing my sister’s Strawberry Ice Cream Shake almost made me regret why I didn’t order the chocolate. My Kilimanjaro coffee looked kind of sad next to her strawberry shake and pudding.
Tasted as good as they looked
Kilimanjaro coffee served with milk and brown sugar crystals on the side

There was something about Ryuma coffee shop that got me during that visit. Maybe it was the curious mix of richness and simplicity. Whatever else that’s brewing there, the delightful blend of coffee and serendipity was more than enough for me.
