Nice cozy cafe. My wife and I enjoyed a brunch with coffee. The blueberry pancakes were great! Lot of coffee varieties to choose from to suit many tastes. Good wifi and there is outside and inside dining. Deserts are enjoyable. Staff are warm and friendly.

We were travelling about a month around Philippines and this is the first time that we drink tasty coffee. The food is amazing. But the most important is the very helpful and polite staff. A must try.

This is a very lovely cafe with restaurant standard menu and food, very nice. Great attentive, friendly staff promptly take your order and are always on hand to fill up your water glass and ask how your food and drinks are. Tuna steak, rockafella pasta,...chicken teriyaki, iced coffee, speciality coffee and fresh orange juice (made to order) were all very nice in our opinions 😊More

Asked for a recommendation and 'eventually' got the hangover toast. This was completely fine, well cooked and tasty. Ordered orange juice , they had run out. Got apple juice. A dark brown concoction arrived we drank it, it was fine. My girlfriend ordered a spam...bowl - don't ask, she's Filipina and had a dodgy tummy. My girlfriend got her food and even though she ordered well after me as I thought I was getting the recommendation my food never came. Had to reorder! My girlfriend had nearly finished her food before I got mine. The poor girl doing the service was either half sleep or just not interested, it wasn't even busy.More

I have already been waiting 5 minutes, and nobody has taken my order yet. When I approached the counter to finally place my order, the gay waiter (i have LGBT friends) literally told me "i'm busy", and he was just behind the counter doing something...that can wait. Are you serious?! Too busy to accommodate a customer?! When the food arrived, I had to get up multiple times just to have my glass of water refilled. But the gay waiter was very attentive to other foreign customers. The food is ok but it's not going to win any award.More

Would definitely recommend, stopped by by accident looking for somewhere to eat lunch. All staff super friendly and attentive, great chilled music/vibes. Food great as well! I had a beef burger (craving home food after being away for a month), homemade pattie and delicious bun....Definitely worth stopping by if in the area 🙌🏼💯More

This place was a great find. The service was amazing, the two waiters were accommodating with food preferences and allergies. The coffee was the best I’ve had since arriving (plus came out with cute art) and my pancakes were great. All in all a god...barely option.More
