Welcome to a Harry Potter World in Maginhawa, Philippines!
“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good”
As a Potterhead, I was ecstatic when I heard of this The Nook Cafe: a Harry Potter themed café. So, I wander aaaaaaall the way just to experience this café.
This is it! This is the place! Bloody hell! it is whaaatt? It is cloooosed! I am sooo disappointed! but when we try to open the door knob… tadaaa! I was so happy that time! It’s just that their signage was not properly placed or maybe I should blame the wind.
and Harry Potter world in 3, 2, 1!
I want this set too ♥
What’s inside the Harry Potter world?
As we enter the Diagon Alley I mean The Nook Cafe I already smell the “Butterbeer”, I saw Harry Potter‘s broomstick (prolly a Nimbus 2000), Hedwig, Hogwarts, robes/uniforms(Gryffindor, Slytherin, nd Hufflepuff), and many more. Although they’re just a replica and a mural I still feel that I’m inside the Harry Potter world and ready to enter the platform 9 ¾ to go to Hogwarts were everything was magical!
The room is small and good for a few people and that’s a good thing, our inner introvert were very happy because we can peacefully enjoy the place more.
We prefer to go on weekdays rather than weekends, because on latter some people waited for almost 2 hours before they may enter the café. We’ve made a good decision!
No, I don’t like the butterbeer! I LOVE IT! ♥
I’m madly deeply in love with their non-alcoholic butterbeer but I’m a bit disappointed because their Hagrid’s (Upsize) Butterbeer is not enough for me. Actually, I’m still dreaming of this now while writing this post. I must thank the one who discover the The Butterbeer. Brilliant, he/she was. How I wish that my mug has a spell that it can refill itself.
I ordered the bacon wrapped chicken and it is really good! I also like their cake, it is appetizing but not too sweet all in all it was great! Next time I’ll try another from their menu.
I’m on my Hufflepuff robe using Gryffindor’s necktie
eating has never ever ever been this cool! Wearing our Gryffindor uniform and it’s like Harry Potter and friends but no Harry Potter.
Honestly, I thiiink we look like a volturi here!
for this reason I remember when Hermoine and Harry Potter used the time turner in the Prisoner of Azkaban to save Sirius Black and Buckbeak.
and I did some doodles so we have something to post on the board inside the Nook Cafe: A Harry Potter themed cafe.
Harry Potter experience
My friend really enjoyed our Harry Potter experience, okay! Of course I was the one who enjoyed the most, although we forgot to ask for the golden snitch and the wand for photo ops and of course the visit wouldn’t be complete without the wizard’s wand. Of course I’ll come back for those important things! and Oh! I think I missed Dobby! 🙁 (He has no master! Dobby is a free elf!)
By the way, the kuyas/waiters are very nice and accommodating. 🙂
Also if you like the Harry Potter experience too, here are the details that might help you. Enjoy!
