I categorize usual breakfast fare as good or bad. This one is good. I mean how good or bad can eggs or fried sausages etc be? The coffee was good and hot. over all very good value.

Hi Joy Thanks for your review. Much appreciated. It's refreshing to receive an intelligent review like yours. I mean - some customers order an ordinary breakfast of say bacon and eggs and then complain on Tripadvisor that the breakfast is ordinary or average. I mean how are we supposed to serve bacon and eggs - it's bacon and eggs as... More

First of all, this place has the best Wifi in town, hands-down. Second of all, they have real brewed coffee and really delicious salads and sandwiches. Third of all, very affordable strawberry Vodka shots! Fourth - the owner is a friendly and gentle Brit with a lifetime of travel tales.

We stopped here looking for a good simple breakfast and it didn't disappoint. Coffee was excellent and ingredients were top notch. Price was very reasonable especially compared to other Alona restaurants. The staff were great and David helped us with questions we had about Panglao. So good we went back twice.

We went after reading the good reviews. The small breakfast for 2 people with drinks was 550pesos (expensive considering the juice was artificial and very diluted, you only get 1 slice of toast per person). For this price at Panglao 2 people can have a nice dinner with grilled seafood at a table overlooking the sea .. maybe this is... More

Hi there Given your malicious and false allegation that we serve artificial juice, I am not going to waste my time replying to people like you who tell lies in an attempt to defame our business and livelihood. Your accusation quite frankly disgusts me and you should be ashamed of yourself. Instead, I shall direct my reply to TripAdvisor Readers.... More

Excellent breakfast. The owner was so kind to prepare breakfast for us even though he only opened half an hour later. The coffee is the best coffee I have had in the Philippines.

We have had breakfast in Nikitas. My girlfriend chose a vegetarian breakfast (toast with curried beans, eggs and cheese). I took the breakfast menu (toast with butter and jam, eggs and bacon, ananas juice) with a cappuccino instead of a coffee. Both of them were delicious.
