New Filipino coffee shop opens in Huntsville – And locals are loving it

December 20, 2023 by No Comments

Huntsville’s coffee scene just got a new hidden gem, and it’s brewing with Filipino, Thai, and Vietnamese flavors. Meet Kape Tayo, a charming little coffee shop tucked away on the second floor of University Pickers. The name itself is an invitation – ‘Kape Tayo’ means ‘let’s have coffee’ in Tagalog, and the menu is brimming with tempting ways to answer that call.

Opened a few weeks ago, Kape Tayo celebrated its grand opening on December 14th, and the buzz has been brewing ever since. Their specialty drinks are a must-try, especially the Iced Ube Kape, their top seller. This vibrant purple concoction blends Italian espresso, whole milk, half-and-half, and ube, a sweet purple yam native to the Philippines. The ube lends a nutty, vanilla twist that’s simply delightful.

Since opening, the coffee shop has enjoyed positive reviews from locals, and currently has 5.0/5.0 ratings on Google. This is a far cry from a generic coffee shop which should be celebrated for giving Huntsville something different when it comes to coffee and similar drinks.

Their menu boasts a diverse selection of Filipino, Thai, and Vietnamese coffees, each with its own unique twist. Whether you’re a latte lover, a cold brew connoisseur, or a curious adventurer, Kape Tayo has something to tantalize your taste buds.
