Maximus Athlete's Shop Cafe
Maximus Athlete's Shop Cafe, a perfect place for athlete and foodies. Inspired by western cycling cafes, Andy Leuterio and his wife Sheryll came up with bringing this store concept in their 280 sqm. shop in Sparta . Andy Leuterio or better known to many as "Coach Andy", is a triathlon coach, a columnist from Top Gear Philippines, a sports marketing consultant and President of Maximus Athlete Shop Cafe.The restaurant was named after one of Coach Andy's son.
Offering quality bikes, swimming and running gears and specialty coffee, Maximus Athlete's Shop Cafe also offers complete bike check up, tune up and repairs too. The multi-sport shop have brands like Lynskey, State Bicycles, Knight Composites, Newton Running, TYR, FuelBelt, Gu, Spenco, SUUNTO, Oakley, GoPro, Muc-Off, Skullcandy, Swiftwick, Vamos, Stages Cycling, Turbuds and Garmin.
The cafe menu offers specialty coffee from YKW Handcrafted Coffee Roasters of the EDSA BDG. They have hot and cold beverages, pasta, toast, grilled sandwiches and desserts.
If you're a bit hungry, try out their Pasta Aligue. It's actually a new addition in their menu. Very lightly seasoned with just the right amount of Aligue to taste. You could actually try to squeeze the lemon for added flavor. Masarap without reservations. Try to ask them if this is available on your visit.
Their Blueberry Cheesecake is not too heavy nor too sweet with just the right creaminess. The moist Chocolate Cake is chocolatey though I am looking for a bit more moist texture. The Red Velvet Cake is buttery and milky which is good with their hot Cappuccino.
Cappuccino (P130.00) , perfectly crafted with strong coffee and milky taste. If you wanted to try out their cakes, you definitely must get one of this. Masarap without reservations.
If you're not into pasta, you might want to try out their Grilled Sandwiches (P200.00). We had their spanish chorizo with feta, cream cheese and mozarella. The combination was awesome, masarap without reservations. If you liked something more healthier, you can try out their spanish sardine sandwich. It has the same three cheeses, fresh white onions and lettuce. Undeniably masarap without reservations too.
Me and my friends were able to try their Pour Over Ethiopia Coffee. Freshly ground coffee that has this fruity and floral flavor that will definitely give you a boost. They have 6 blends that you can choose and I suggest that you ask the friendly barista for insights on the coffee flavors. Masarap without reservations.
If you're wanting something cold, you must try their Dark Matter Strawberry Blast (I really love to say that). Their strawberry flavored signature drink that is very refreshing, fruity and smooth. It's like drinking baileys. Masarap and a must try without reservations.
My personal rating for the restaurant:
Food: 4.0 (including their coffee)
This is truly a one of a kind athlete shop / coffee shop. A place that offers "comfort food for athletes". Big thanks to Coach Andy and his staff.
