The week just started, but a beloved cafe in UP Diliman is coming to a close. The Chocolate Kiss Cafe posted an official announcement that it will permanently stop its operations after 23 years.
Also referred to as “ChoKiss” by regular goers from UP Diliman, the cafe took to Facebook their explanation on why it had to say goodbye, ‘The past year of navigating through the lockdowns was quite exciting, but sadly, not sustainable, which has prompted us to wind things down.’
Owner Ina Flores Pahati posted her parting letter, playfully titled “Goodbye Kiss.” She recalled that the cafe opened in 1997 until it became an iconic hangout and date location at the university’s campus. Over time, they got to serve UP’s popular personalities, government officials, and other public figures.
ChoKiss shared in the FB post that people can still grab their all-time faves until June 22. They also mentioned that they might include a few limited edition goodies on the menu to finish their remaining ingredients.
People can place their orders via thechocolatekiss.com, with two days lead notice. Another option is to check the “Buy Today” section of the site to check what’s available for the day.
‘In behalf of everyone who was part of The Chocolate Kiss family, we thank you for making us part of your celebrations, and your lives,’ ChoKiss said in the post. ‘We’ve built so many good memories over the years, and we only want to leave you with happy thought.
