Madge Cafe at Diversion road, Iloilo City

 Madge cafe, the humble but famous coffee shop inside the public Market of La Paz now in its third generation of management by the Dela Cruz family has now opened its 2nd branch at Butlak Wellness Spa D'Salon at Diversion Rd., Mandurriao, Iloilo City. 

Seeing a photo online of the spa's opening, I happened to drop by last December 13 knowing that there's a coffee shop in the place. Located beside Moonleaf Diversion (or Benigno Aquino Jr. Avenue), Madge Cafe Diversion was just in its second day of operation. Sir John welcomed me to the coffee shop. He is the older brother of Tito Peter at the cafe's main branch where hospitality towards customers is never compromised. I felt the same treatment even in their 2nd branch.
 The famous coffee of Madge in La Paz Market really tastes good and is really affordable! That's the very reason why local coffee lovers patronize their coffee almost everyday and it's now the right time for the Ilonggos and their visitors to hang out and enjoy the coffee shop's 2nd branch in Diversion Road, Mandurriao, Iloilo City.
One can choose to order coffee with milk in Mild, Regular and Strong coffee blend in Media Tabang, Media Regular and Media Cafe respectively or savor the richness of coffee without milk by ordering Puro Regular, Puro Tabang and Media Puro for mild, medium and strong blends respectively. 
This is really how they serve their coffee in this mug, not so full. But it's all there. For me, I never leave Madge without a second cup, most especially when the conversation with friends go very well. 
But this time it was just a cup for me. Unlike when I'm with family or friends at Tinda Lapaz, the second cup is always a must to fully boost me throughout the day. Their Milk Tea or Nai Cha is also good and is only available in this branch, go hot on rainy days and get the iced tea when the sun is up.
 For years, they have utilized the turtle as part of their marketing design. This was started by their grandfather. And by the way, Madge came from their grandmother's name, Magdalena.
 They also serve desserts for your sweet tooth to enjoy.

Since day one at Diversion road last 12-12-12, people are now flocking at the coffee shop from 7AM-9PM to satisfy their personal need for caffeine. Tourists now have an option to try the coffee of Madge here in Diversion road if they don't really have much time to go to La Paz.

I'm definitely coming back and it's surely one of my most recommended coffee shop in Iloilo.
