• The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® was born in Southern California in 1963, and was built on two foundational principles, PASSION and PURPOSE. The company has been rooted in a culture of SHARING and COMMUNITY for nearly two decades in the Philippines, underlined by delivery and DISCOVERY of premium flavors & great tastes.

    When we discovered how rich and complex a good cup of coffee could be, we became driven to share that moment with our community.

    Along the way, the power of ‘good’ expanded to become a pillar of what makes 
    The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® unique. 

    Every day, our customers experience the layers of goodness that build from farm to froth. We craft every cup to celebrate that goodness, and through every action that we take, we share our goodness with our world.

    Through our sourcing, products, people, stores and contributions, we tirelessly serve the people, communities and the world at large. 

    Crafting goodness is our way of being in the world and every moment is another chance to create greater goodness.

  • “If you want to experience a fusion of Filipino, American, and continental recipes, elevated from regular comfort food to extraordinary, try Nono’s– a gastronomic journey to Chef Baba’s memorable childhood and family life.” - Philippine Primer

    “Nono’s is a personal journey into my childhood and home. As I began to dream of a restaurant and what type of food I would want to create, I was deeply drawn to, and inspired by my favorite home-cooked childhood meals and snacks.

    Comfort food is simple. It is heartwarming. It is nourishing. It is home. It is full of happy memories with loved ones. It is food we come back to again and again.

    Welcome to Nono's! I hope you enjoy the journey.” —Baba Benedicto

  • “Made to his specifications and cooked in the tempering heat of a wood fire, his crust emerges from the oven as a Neapolitan fantasy of crispness that is also pillowy and soft, sweet but not sugared, tangy without too much salt.”- The New York Times

    “When the original Motorino opened in then still up-and-coming Brooklyn, it was rated the No. 1 Best New Generation Pizza by The New York Times and immediately spawned a following so loyal that the eatery became a chain with three Big Apple locations and half a dozen satellites across the Pacific Rim. There has always been a lot of great pizza in New York, likely more than in any city in the world, yet upstart Motorino was the first to become beloved so quickly so far from home. Why? Well it is delicious, but it is also consistent, and perhaps most importantly, the company lives up to its credo of being “a neighborhood pizzeria, whether in New York or Hong Kong.” Unlike many brands we have seen turn into chains, there are no food court locations, and each Motorino in its own way feels like the only one.”- USA Today
