When was the last time you've been to Quezon? Come and join us on this amazing and filling "Discover-E"!
A product of hospitality and love for food, Koffee Klatch was established by Ms. Milada on the late '60s. Inspired by the European lifestyle that Ms. Milada had experienced, Koffee Klatch has been the cake haven in this small town for decades until it finally branched out to other towns of Quezon.
Ms. Milada, or "Mommy" as what she wants us to call her, shared to us that the reason why her bakeshop is still here after so many years is mainly because of one reason, she always make sure that the goodness of her baked goodies are affordable even to the poorest of the poorest.
We spent some more time talking to Mommy Milada, who fascinated us all throughout our stay there with her life stories. She told us that we were lucky because its been three years since her last Pahiyas, and we were lucky enough to meet her here for she mostly spend her time now with her family in the States. She also told us the heart-warming idea that if not all, most of her staff in all of her Koffee Klatch stores around Quezon are uneducated. Her father told her to get employees who weren't able to finish their studies because it was only them - small business owners - who would accept them and would give them livelihood.

Our last destination that day was our hotel in Lucena City, the capital of the province. Queen Margaret Hotel is said to be the most decent hotel in this part of the country. And though the periodic interior kinda crept me out a little, I'm excited to try their buffet breakfast, which I'm sure will fill me up good the following day!
So, guys, stay tune as I'm about to share more of Quezon's must-see foodie spots and must-taste delicacies on the day 2 of our Electrolux Discover-E!
