Tried shakshouka and coffee. Great place for all day breakfast in boracay. Rightly rated highly. 100% agree on the choice

We came here 3 time during our stay in Boracay - 2 for lunch and 1 for dinner. I’m vegan and my boyfriend is a meat eater and we were both very impressed. I highly recommend the ‘cheese’ and onion toastie - such a feel...good snack and one of the many reasons I would return to Borocay!More

Really good coffee! Visited twice on my recent visit on the island. I would always get two coffee each time! Flat White and Vietnamese Coffee for to-go. Tapa was not the best and pancake took so long to serve.

I would have rated a 4 as the food was really good! Pancakes, tuna salpicao, beef tapa, coffee, etc. But a friend had a bum stomach after drinking a sip of spoiled watermelon juice. It’s supposedly freshly made juice. It spoiled my friend’s whole day....The management should make sure all juices are freshly made.More

The food here was excellent, even if the service was lacking. At one point I told the server to hold my order until I went to retrieve something I'd forgotten from my hotel. When I came back, the food was on the table. Apparently he...didn't know what "hold the order" meant or else he didn't pass the message along to the kitchen. I went back to eat there again another day despite that, and the same server got my side dish wrong. However despite that, the food was good enough to keep me coming back and I ate there three total times, twice for breakfast and once for lunch. Their pancakes are crazy. They're so thick and wide around (practically the size of the large plate they're served on) that I don't even think it's fair to call them pancakes. They're more like really flat cupcakes, and like cupcakes they come served with icing and other yummy toppings. The servers will warn you to get a half order if you're eating solo. I didn't finish my half order or my full order with the two different dishes I tried. Great drink selection as well. I recommend the banana milk latte and the calamansi juice. And best of all, unlike most of the restaurants in the area, they accept credit card! The other things they could adjust would be changing their seating since only one chair in the whole place allows you to see the beach while you eat without turning your head 90 degrees, and actually providing air conditioning. It was rather hot inside.More

I usually dine here prepandemic and was a fan of the all day breakfast theme However, fast forward to today and food tasted normal - nothing special Price is not too expensive though But all in all experience was disappointing

A great place to eat and chill, its right by the beach and had a good view of it. Food is great but not for people with a tight budget, but its worth the price. Hot chocloate is sinfuly delicious, very rich. we tried to...make one cup into ice chocolate and it still worked.😆 bacon and mango grilled cheese was delicious. The hotcakes are fluffy and huge! Champorado is also really good. Great place for good view and breakfast❤More

Innovative takes on what I consider to be comfort food. Everything with chorizo on the menu is a must-try, especially the chorizo mac and cheese and the choriburger. The rest of the burgers are sure to be hits for teens and kids.

By far the best breakfast in Borocay and one of the best anywhere. Outdoor and indoor seating, in a beautiful atmosphere, so far we have tried the smoothly fruits bowl, bacon and eggs, egg and bacon sandwich, pancake and the chorizo with rice and eggs....All standout, but the chorizo was the best, going to try the tuna next.More

We spent around 45 mins walking around the beach but we cannot find good food. Our feet was so tired that we were just left with no choice but to eat inside the hotel we're staying. BUT-- We stumbled upon this cute, small, but simple...looking cafe/restaurant. It wasn't that noticeable for me because this place was surrounded by other restaurants as well. They're menu which was displaying outside the restaurant caught our attention and we thought, we should give it a shot. So we entered inside and we're the only people eating there. The staff were very accommodating to us. And don't get me started with their pizza. It was the BEST. We tried their honey bacon pizza and we were really satisfied. It's also good to mention that their chicken Alfredo pasta was superb! The pasta was al dente, and the sauce was just so creamy! Definitely a hidden gem in boracay and I would never get tired of recommending this to anyone I know. 💗More

Loved the food, ambiance, and staff. I really looked for The Sunny Side Cafe as soon as I came to Boracay because of the features I've been seeing on the internet and now I can agree to what they say.

We ate at their restaurant a few times during our stay and everything was really good, even our picky 8-year-olds loved them. This is a very popular restaurant. All throughout the day, there will be a long wait for a table. So while food is...unquestionably good, it is frustrating why they don't expand with a few more tables to reduce wait time and so more people can enjoy their great food.More
