Davao’s first! Into the unique café vibe of ComiCa

ComiCa is a small-scale café established in August 2021. Since then, it has become a hangout haven for almost every otaku within Davao.

Located at Unit 2, Cope Building, C. M. Recto, Davao City, the place remains in the vicinity of Ateneo de Davao University and Roxas Night Market. Set on the first floor, Japanese anime music will greet you as it plays from their speaker. Then, the staff greets, “Irasshaimase! (Welcome to the store!),” upon your entry. The place is small yet clean, even in their comfort room with a working bidet. The place also has free Wi-Fi which the staff would give the password for when asked kindly.

Currently, ComiCa is one of two otaku-themed cafés in Mindanao. They offer food and drinks just like a regular café would. However, it is with a variety that does not focus mainly on Japanese cuisine with menu items costing less than PHP 200. From Japanese rice meal staples, they also have Filipino silog meals, pasta, and snacks on their menu.

For drinks, they offer both caffeinated and non-caffeinated options as well as a variety of specials. A personal recommendation is the iced Comica Signature Chocolate, perfect for a sweet tooth on a hot day.

They provide board games to play and manga to read for their patrons. If you love collecting figurines and plushies, those they have displayed are purchasable within the café.

In just a short time, ComiCa is the host of some otaku events within Davao City. In December 2021, they held a Cosplay café special event with Ambox. The waitresses dressed in cosplay greeted, served, and played with the customers. Ming Miho, a popular Filipino cosplayer based in Davao, even had a meet-and-greet held in the café in March 2022. They also host small-scale Yu-Gi-Oh! tournaments that last for hours every Saturday.

You do not have to be an otaku to enjoy what they have to offer, although it does help. If you are lucky enough, you might meet patrons in full cosplay and get to request a picture with them! ComiCa is open every Monday to Friday from 3 PM to 11 PM, and Saturday to Sunday from 1 PM to 11 PM.

If you enjoy the experience, feel free to post something on their freedom wall before leaving! Follow ComiCa’s Facebook page and Instagram @comicadvo for more details and updates.
