If Samson and Delilah are still kicking and alive, they would probably be traveling and dating, sauntering beautiful spots to savor romantic moments. But their love story has ended too soon. Happily, not for you and your precious one!
In our modern day, dating means promenading on parks, munching at fast foods, and expression of love through digital stickers and emojis. But in the old days (technically not a long time ago), dating was about sipping warm coffee, the share of laughter, an outburst of corny jokes, and exchange of confessions. Well, you can still do that and be an old-school romantic. Where? In the heart of Davao reside a number of cafes and resto that serve good food and good cups for lovely couples. Here are 10 of the famed (…and revealed) cafes in Davao for couples.
