Amo Yamie Crib

Amo Yamie Crib is this cute two-storey café/movie house that most people probably wouldn't notice unless they were really looking for it. I know this because we couldn't spot it the first time around. It is filled with post-its from customers, tasteful décor in different colours, and lots of other personal touches from the customers themselves. It gives the whole place a cozy/homey vibe that I instantly fell in love with upon walking inside.
Customers are supplied with a bunch of post-its, pens, and other colouring materials if they wish to leave a note or a message to be stuck on the wall or under glass tables. There are also mini chalkboards, which I wrote my blog url on. Similar to the Lover's bridge (by the River Seine in France), you can also lock padlocks onto a wall covered with chain links. I wasn't able to do it on my first trip, but I plan to do so the next time I go with my closest friends. While I'm not exactly big on sandwiches, I tried their clubhouse sandwich, which my niece unfortunately and accidentally kicked from my hands as we were heading up the stairs. It was such a waste of food that I couldn't help but feel disheartened... Because, y'know... I'm obsessed with food. Hahaha. You can also rent rooms upstairs to watch movies with your friends, and the price was reasonable enough. It didn't cost over a thousand pesos, so I thought it would be the perfect hang out spot for a group of friends. A couple of girls were particularly noisy and rowdy to the extent that it got on my best friend, my niece, and I's nerves. We were one step away from asking them to tone it down a bit as they were being rude, acting as if they were at just at home, and showed no signs of having manners whatsoever. Thankfully, the driver had arrived to pick us up by then. Saved. To my readers from Pampanga, Amo Yamie Crib is located right next to Holy Family Clinic. Maybe I'll see you guys there some time. :)


  1. I saw a feature about this coffee shop in Cheska Balingit's blog, and I'm glad that you have blogged about your experience there too. I seriously need to move to Pampanga!


  2. If you go to Manila, this is somewhat similar to Noriter. :)

  3. I have a friend who's from Pampanga and we went to her place once. Might try and visit this place the next time we're there! Thank you for sharing! :)

    Definitely thinking of going here with mine.
    I haven't known 'Amo Yamie Crib' before this so thanks for sharing!


  5. Where exactly in Pampanga is this located? Bataan's near Pampanga so I'm thinking maybe I can go there some time. :)) Not that familiar with Pampanga, though. :/
