San Juan, La Union is known to be the surfing capital of the North. Before, there were only few resorts in town. But due to its increasing popularity, more and more food stalls opened.
In 2014, El Union Coffee humbly opened as a small coffee shop along the highway of San Juan but now they moved to a larger space. The baristas are very accommodating. I like the artsy interior design and the groovy music they play. I really don’t know why but every time I go here, it makes me feel so hipster LOL.
What I love the most, is their fresh roasted coffee. The coffee tastes really good. There is something real about it. The coffee is made out of brewed local coffee beans. I always order their Iced Mocha but today I tried the Dirty White.

Aside from the coffee, they also serve skillet cookies, smores, buttermilk pancakes with bacon jam ( I haven’t tried this one yet), and grilled cheese sandwiches.
As my favorite coffee quote goes, “Life is too short for crappy coffee.” So if you are planning to go North, try El Union Coffee. Meet new people, enjoy the music, refresh your minds, breathe fresh air, and feel the rustic countryside.
