Side by Side Hangout: Your Local and Yardstick Coffee
There's a new place to be in Legazpi Village and it's nowhere near any of the malls. Your Local and Yardstick Coffee are located right next to each other along Esteban Street.
We preferred to have a proper meal at Your Local before moving next door. We had a taste of the famous Chorizo Sandwich, the one with black buns, and their Chicken Rice. They were okay but we think that their specialty is Rendang and that's because the Beef Rendang Buns and the Lamb Rendang were equally good.
For a weekend nightcap, we moved to Yardstick Coffee. The place was well lit and the ambiance suitable for all sorts of coffee breaks however we didn't find the coffee extraordinary enough to come back and the service was not as friendly as what you would expect from a coffee place. The pastries were quite good though.
