According to Auro Chocolate, this grab and go café and physical store at IKEA Philippines is proudly Filipino. Apart from the locally sourced cocoa and chocolate products, the café also supports the country’s local craft industry. Its interior decorations are weaved by Boholano weavers, lights handmade by local craftsmen, and even the staff’s uniforms are made by local sewing communities!
Items on the menu will include signature Auro chocolate products, as well as new treats made from their chocolate–both sweet and savory. Local coffee and chocolate-y drinks will also be available for customers to purchase. And if you’re looking for a treat after a day of shopping at IKEA, Auro has got you! They will be serving a dark chocolate soft serve ice cream in their signature lengua de gato cone! (Read: LOOK: These Vegan Chocolates Might Just Be the Next Big Thing)
