Last July 20, we planned to have a small meeting with some members of the Negros Online Workers community. Since many opt to have a live coaching session plus an opportunity to get out of the house, we decided to meet over coffee and snacks.
Usually, we just meet at coffee shops. However, it was a Saturday and it may not be a good idea since these places are usually crowded. It is also rude to stay for a long period while ordering a single cup of coffee only while there are a lot of customers waiting to be seated.
Thus, we are so happy to discover the best venue for small meetings in Bacolod and Iloilo. Here are the top 5 reasons why we think you should hold your afternoon meetings at Seda. (By the way, this is not a sponsored post.)
1. Perfect Ambiance
Seda Misto provides the perfect ambiance for meetings. The place is well-lighted, has comfortable chairs and tables and it is usually not crowded. The tables are spaced adequately that you don't disturb the people on the other table.
2. Value for Money
Seda Misto offers Saboroso merienda buffet. It includes an indulgent selection of sandwiches, savory and sweet treats, and an assortment of afternoon coffee and tea.
During our visit, we were able to enjoy tuna canape, salmon canape, ham and cheese canape, chicken canape, puto and dinuguan, chicken nuggets, macaroni salad, fruit salad, mango pannacotta, and assorted pastries. They also alternate serving batchoy and lomi every other day.
Rates are at Php 350 per head for Bacolod and Php 250 per head for Iloilo. I believe this is quite reasonable compared if we go to a coffeeshop. Drinks usually costs Php 150- 180 and cakes around Php 150 so that's pretty much around Php 300 - 330 which is almost just the same. The only difference is that you have more choices with unlimited food and drinks.
3. Delicious Chocolate Drink
Yes, you read it right. If you're not a fan of hot drinks like me, you can ask for a chocolate milk drink from the attendants. It's also unlimited. :)
4. Free Wifi
Though the internet connection may not be as fast as the ones in coworking spaces, they do have a pretty decent wifi connection that you can use to check your emails, browse the internet and check your social media accounts. Just ask the attendants for an access code.
5. Additional Discounts
If you are a SEDA Edge member, you are eligible for a 10% discount (Classic) and 15% (Premier) on your total bill. I believe ARC members also get the same privilege.
So, if you are looking for the best venue for small meetings in Bacolod and Iloilo, then you should definitely consider Seda Misto.
