We’ve stumbled upon this very cool place one evening when our group was looking out for a place to have dinner and to chill out at the same time. After scouring Katipunan for a few minutes, driving along Katipunan area – it’s fun to drive around when you’re with a group of friends who share the same appetite for food and fun (the Toyota Avanza  is a perfect roadtrip ride  where 7 people can fit in to this very spacious MPV), we finally reach The Lib along Esteban Abad Street at the back of Katipunan Avenue and a few minute distance from the corner of Aurora Boulevard in Quezon City. The Lib is a hole in a wall that not many people knew about.

When we finally sat on the dining table, and as the food arrived, we can’t help but kept on taking photos of it and savor the aroma of each food on the plates that were  served to us. We knew that they do not only look good in photos, they taste delicious as well IRL!

Co-working spaces, cafes, and events/ meeting places are booming these days in the metro. Filipinos either students or professionals are always on the lookout for places and establishments where they can study, work, eat, hang out, and relax all at the same time without hassle from the busy and fast-paced world. To meet this kind of demand, The Cravings Group developed a space that highlights coziness and provides a homey vibe for students and professionals.

A Refreshing Space to WORK, LEARN, and MEET

What used to be The Center for Culinary Arts (CCA, Manila) library, The Lib is now a community hub located along Esteban Abada Street (at the back of Katipunan Avenue) that provides a space for members of the community to be productive, creative, and to collaborate with other communities as well.
