Having been to shaka manila with their cakes, burgers etc it was so good. Made an effort to find this place and the decor is different and just smoothie bowls.

Beautiful smoothie bowls and oat milk for all drinks. They use rice paper/roll straws! The granola has walnuts and is not sweet.

Expensive to say the least, especially for locals. Smoothie bowls are in the 300s and I think they cater mostly to foreigners. They have many branches in PH and are owned by an Australian, so not locally owned from what I was told. Beware the gentrification creeping in. Maybe consider special, local prices or something to not exclude our local community. Support local businesses, but this is okay every now and then.

Thanks. I would love for more opportunities to arise for people in the
Philippines. My family tells me all the time there aren’t many jobs and the amount of homeless people I saw in Cebu city- ugh. So many hungry kids on those streets. Yes to tourism, but no to becoming the next Thailand or Bali. No to modern colonization.

Great for breakfast!

Best vegan breakfast in the last few days. I had the 'Flu fighter' juice & the 'Bom Dia' (berry & banana) bowl with homemade granola & fresh mango. They use oat milk instead of dairy. Omg!! So good! Omnivore partner had the Matcha Latte & the 'berry good nice' smoothie. Sooo good! Very clean kitchen/food prep area. Highly recommend.

Good coffee nice breakfast

We went here twice and really liked the coffee. We had the ube smoothie bowl and the mango sticky rice bliss bowl. The portions are quite bit so better for sharing, there were quite a lot of people that did not finish their plates. The staff is really friendly. The menu is very limited to smoothie bowls

Pros: Nice cofee, Good fruity optilns

Cons: Limited options

Delicious and fresh

Delicious and fresh smoothie bowls. Presentation is beautiful. Not cheap but well worth it. Busy little place but people don't seem to mind sharing tables.

Delicious smoothie bowls and fab flat white

We loved Shaka! The coffee was the best so far in the Philippines and both smoothie bowls were excellent. The granola on top of both was particularly good. It's only 5 minutes walk from the sardine run, so very conveniently located.

Pros: All vegan!, Relaxed atmosphere

Cons: Not many savoury options

The only fully vegan cafe in Panagsama!

As the only fully vegan cafe and offering smoothie bowls these guys have a monopoly and the prices to reflect. The Bom Dia bowl was nice but I felt had too much banana. The green power bowl however was delish! We really enjoyed the falafel wrap. But beware, it’s very garlicky!

Pros: 100% vegan, Good location close to the beach

Cons: Expensive , Need more menu options

Loved the smoothie bowls. Wish they served more savoury dishes like the other Shaka cafes and would have eaten here more often.

The veggie sandwich and falafel wraps were delicious.

Amazing smoothie bowls

Had the peanut butter and chocolate smoothie bowl, could hardly finish it. With a coffee it was 380 pesos which was a little expensive but worth it

Great smoothie bowls and good coffee

First off the staff are so friendly and polite, the smoothie bowls are so yummy and refreshing even on a rainy day, the coffee is made with oat milk and bowls are made from coconut and oat milk. Definitely recommend.

They have a smoothie bowl combo with iced oat latte for 380 (saving 80 pesos). Bowls are refreshing and it’s the best latte we’ve had in Philippines. They don’t have any cows milk and just automatically use oat milk in coffees so I believe the whole menu is vegan now but I could be wrong!

Pros: Great coffee, Automatically uses oat milk

Chocolate smoothie bowl is good!

Tried a bunch of different dishes here and found most of them quite tasteless. The chocolate smoothie bowl on the other hand - YUM!

Hit or miss, but very nice place to have!

Some of the things here were rather flavorless (açai bowl, ube dessert) but the chocolate smoothie bowl was just amazing! Think it’s a bit hit or miss but generally a nice place to get your smoothie bowl and chia pudding fix😋

Fav spot in Moalboal!

We came to Shaka every day in Moalboal! They have delicious oat milk lattes and their coco latte, made with coconut milk, was absolutely fantastic. Their smoothies and smoothie bowls were delicious - I got the peanut butter and banana one twice during our three day stay. They also have a yummy falafel wrap and oat protein balls. Staff is also so friendly!

Pros: Nondairy milks!!!, Yummy healthy smoothies and bowls

Cons: A little expensive for the area but worth it

Love the smoothie bowls and vibe

I went here a couple of times and was impressed by the smoothie bowls as they are like a work of art in addition to tasting nice. I also had a juice that was good. It's a great place to relax and cool off for a bit.

Amazing Smoothie Bowls

Smoothie bowls here are delicious but would be great if you could get something else too. The Shaka in El Nido had savoury food too like burgers, taco’s and pad Thai but this one is only smoothie bowls, coffee or juice.

Pros: Delicious smoothie bowls

Cons: Only smoothie bowls

They have a surprising variety of power bowls and shakes. The price is too high in my opinion, the shakes there cost as much as a meal and the power bowls even more. The quality is great, though, and very refreshing

Pros: Fresh and good variety

Cons: Expensive
