It was a lovely Saturday morning (November 30) when Bon Appetea Milagrosa Katipunan branch was officially opened and blessed by a priest. The owner’s family and friends were there to celebrate as Katipunan gains a new tea place slash hangout.
Right where schools and residential properties are located, Bon Appetea’s first pet-friendly branch is now serving their delectable and affordable dishes and drinks. In an intimate interview with the young mom-entrepreneur Tia de Guzman, we discovered how the business is close to her heart.
After putting up her Audiophile business (supplies professional audio equipment to individuals and companies), Tia thought of pursuing a business project that reflects her passions and advocacies. She was inspired by her Davao-based bestfriend who opened a successful Bon Appetea franchise in the province. With a nice location her family owns, Tia immediately put the plan into action with the help of her family. Her 18-year old son Ethan and 12-year old daughter Yaz are part of her core team. Ethan handles the branch’s social media accounts while Yaz did the calligraphy on the logo. Four members of the team are scholars from Gawad Kalinga Community Development Foundation.❤️
One thing the owners take pride in is the lineup of menu items. Bon Appetea’s products from milk teas, fruit teas, ice blended frappes, sinkers, omelets, pasta, rice bowls, waffles, and waffle sandwiches appealed to Tia and her kids. Not only do the products taste great (We got to try them!) but they are reasonably priced. The prices are definitely budget-friendly, perfect for students and young professionals who live nearby.
“We put our hearts into everything in this place. We hope you see, feel, and taste it in our products,” Tia said.
Bon Appetea Milagrosa Katipunan serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner from 7AM to 1AM and can seat up to 70 persons. FREE parking and a pet lounge are available (The owners have five dogs as part of their family!). Organic free-range eggs are also used in the dishes and sourced from Animal Kingdom Foundation, an animal rescue center.
Bon Appetea Milagrosa Katipunan is located at the ground floor of YDG Building, 219 Katipunan Avenue Extension, Brgy. Milagrosa, Quezon City.
