5 Alternative Coffices in Manila

Gone are the days of sitting at a dull office day in and day out. As paperless workers, we are no longer tied down to our desks. You can grab your phone, tablet and/or laptop and do your work wherever you please. So to ride with the global trend of “coffice-ing” or working in a coffee-shop office, we’ve compiled a list of alternative coffices that don’t only serve coffee and a space to work, but more.
