When people ask me where I go to drink coffee, eat dessert or access WiFi, I often tell them I go to Kasagingan. Most of them think I’m kidding them because they have no idea what or where Kasagingan is. Well, it is a cafe, located at F. Torres Street. It is one of the best coffee places in town, not just because of their great food and coffee, but more so because of the great ambiance.

What sets Kasagingan apart is the great concept behind the place. The entire place has a banana theme, and they serve delicious banana-based drinks and desserts. They have Bananapuccino and refreshing Banana Boat Ice Blended Drink. Me and my friends go there for their Mmmaruya Supreme, Tworon, Banana Crumble, and Banana Luck. These are all classic Pinoy banana meriendas but with a twist. Another favorite is Banana Dream Pie.

Kasagingan also serves tummy-filling pasta and sandwiches. My personal favorites are Angel Spice which is angel hair pasta drenched in tomato sauce with spicy hungarian sausage, and Roast Beef Sandwich. They also serve Sossy Hungarian Sausage and Angel D’ Lite pasta.

Aside from banana-based desserts and drinks, they also serve the usual cafe favorites such as Hot Chocolate served with marshmallows, coffee drinks, ice blended drinks, hot and iced tea, cheesecakes, cookies and other pastries.

Another interesting feature of Kasagingan are their creative and witty posters and reminders which never fail to make me and my friends laugh.

    The plate looks real nice – ingenious banana leaf design! hehe. Hmmm, maruya. I love funnel cakes – they’re more or less the same thing, right? :p

    the place is nice. i just hope they would add more iced blended coffee variants & flavored milkshakes on their menu though.

    Check this coffee shop out. I saw this online and during my vacation from Kansas and i included it in my itinerary to drop by this coffee shop which i just saw on the internet. I liked the ambiance and the service was good too.
    The coffee was great. Especially the Macchiatto.
    It tasted really good, like the one i always have back home in Kansas. They deserve to be here in your site.

    It’s great to have nice coffee shops & restos in Davao! Some of them were created by a multi-awarded adman, Bai Manginsay: Kasagingan, Cups ‘n Lowercase. He redesigned Taps. I heard he redesigned logos of Harana, etc. He also created the Phoenix petroleum brand. I heard he’s coming up again with another creation, an italian resto on Torres St.??

    dito talaga ako tumatambay kasi malapit lang sa skul namin! lakas pa wifi… but then, the food that they serve is really worth it… kumbaga, sulit na sulit dito!

    i’ve been to kasagingan this weekend and i was surprised that the price of “maruya supreme” rose from P45 last august to P75 today.

    75 pesos for a maruya? wtf!

    i love the place & maruya supreme, yes. but please be reasonable on your prices… i understand we are ‘paying’ also for the place, and i do order a lot, but the price is really not reasonable since we (in davao) has a lot of saging, hence your place is called – kasagingan.
