Spending Time Alone At Buon Gelato

I’ve been spending more time just by myself these days. At first I thought it wasn’t fun going to places alone but then it’s not that bad at all. In fact, I like it.

Classes were over and it was lunch time. My friends didn’t go to class that day so I had my lunch alone. You know how restaurants get crowded during meal time? I hated crowds and I’m glad I saw this nice looking coffee and gelato shop at the mall. It’s called Buon Gelato. At first I was reluctant to go inside because I wanted a real lunch. Not coffee, cake or anything sweet. But then, whatever. I can eat anything I want and I’m glad I found this place.

This place is heavenly. There’s gelatos with so many flavors to choose from, different kinds of coffee, other kinds of ice cream and other desserts.

I went for the strawberry gelato and chocolate fondant. They’re both so yummy! I was in that place for an hour scribbling on my journal and enjoying my sweet lunch. With an amazing place like this with good food, I don’t feel so lonely at all. This is just only one thing I like to do when I’m by myself.

How about you? Where do you go when you’re alone?

    It took me a long time to realize that it was fine, and even nice, to go places by myself sometimes.

    Alone time is underrated, honestly. People seem to be so afraid of being alone nowadays, I actually quite like it, too! Especially in a coffee shop where you have your blogs to catch up on, Youtube and a blogpost you want to work on. So I get you! What do you use to take pictures with? I would like to do these kinds of posts where I just write but i always end up needing to edit all my photos and I find it daunting sometimes.

    I like spending time alone. I am more of an extrovert but I prefer having tea/coffee in a peaceful atmosphere, all alone. This place reminds me of Gloria Jeans but it’s way crowded whenever I am there.

    Spending time alone can be very valuable ‘me’ time! Especially when you get to fully enjoy your gelato~

    I love spending time alone! I usually go to the movies alone, or reading at Barnes and Noble. You really have to be comfortable with yourself to go out on your own. Great job!

      I like going to the movies alone too. At first I thought it would be sad but I can connect more to what I’m watching.

    I don’t really like going out alone so there were only a few times I’ve eaten or hung out without any company. I feel so loner and sad when I’m alone, that’s why. However, when I need to run for little errands, I can manage myself. It just feels different to be in a crowded place all alone by myself.

    Anyway, I think it is because I’ve always been alone. I’ve been living for more than 8 years away from my family, alone in the dorm. Well, I have dorm mates but still, it’s different. Most of the time I eat alone, sleep alone, go to school/work alone. So if I were to go out, I don’t want to be alone anymore.

    Moving back to these gelatos, I’ve only tried the one from Gelatissimo, but I didn’t quite like it. It easily melts. I kinda like Coldstone’s more. Are there any branch of Buon Gelato in Manila? I hope there is so I could try them too. The chocolate fondant looks really yummy! 🙂

      Yeah, it gets lonely when you’re always alone right? I know the feeling. I’m not sure if they have one there. Maybe it’s just here and yeah, it does melts easily but it taste really yummy. I love coldstone as well! 🙂

    Before college I never really went that many places alone other than a few stores to shop. And I loved it! I loved shopping alone because I can do whatever I wanted and I loved the freedom. Now I eat by myself a lot at school and I really don’t mind it!

      Yeah..it’s such a nice feeling when you don’t have to rely to someone to not be lonely. Shopping is easier cos sometimes they drag you along to places they want and sometimes they want to go home already.

    When you spend time alone in a cafe, it is the best time to finish writing some blogs or create lists 🙂

    When I am alone I don’t really go to cafes or coffee shops all by myself. It makes me lonely even more. Instead, I just go window shopping until my feet get tired or sometimes shop impulsively. That’s how I am when I am alone and it’s dangerous if I often go with the latter option! Hahaha

    Being alone or eating alone is not totally bad, for me that time is my relaxtion time and my day off time. That ice cream looks delicious and the coffee is look good.

    This is such a wonderful place to be! Sad that it’s in Iloilo 🙁 Anyway, I’m mostly alone. Some friends call me loner. Haha! I love to watch movies on my own or just hang out. Whenever I’m in Cavite, I spend my time alone in Cobo (milk tea) but when I’m in other places, as much as possible, I try the restaurants or cafe’s around the area. 🙂
