La Union used to be a little-known, sleepy surf town. As more people discover it and head there to surf, more dining options have also been cropping up. On my last visit in January, 2016 I was delightedly surprised to find this great coffee shop!
Its backyard would have direct access to the beach but it was blocked with a fence and wild grass. I think they were planning to open it up and invite other shops to set up so guests can enjoy the beach. I'm looking forward to visiting again and seeing how the unused spaced has evolved.
