Corner Tree Cafe provides a lot of vegan options on their vegetarian menu, if some of those aren’t vegan by default. We ordered the dumplings (Super delicious!! And should’ve ordered more), Lumpia’s (very good!) and for main we ordered Kare Kareng Gulay. A pinoy dish...of which my girlfriend (not vegan) said she really liked it! Definitely go check out this place.More

This restaurant generally serves good foods. Staff were also friendly but their services are not efficient and we had to ask (and remind) them to do something what we have asked for. For instance, we asked (and remind) them to use less syrup for the...shake we ordered but it was not followed. We suggest to have one more waiter during busy lunch/dinner time. Otherwise everything is reasonably goodMore

Apologies for that! And thank you very much for your feedback. I really appreciate it and helps keep our staff on their toes. Did you go to the Rockwell branch? Will discuss this with them and and stress that they need to be more attentive.!...More

A grilled cheese sandwich took them over an hour to make. Placemats were stained in every available table. The grilled cheese was tasteless and the "salad" was just lettuce with vinegar. It's expensive for what it is and since it fails to deliver such a...simple dish well, I fear what else they have to offer.More

Hi Nicole, Very sorry to hear about your experience. They should definitely not have taken that long and noted on the placemats. Will check on that asap. Our salad though is made with dijon mustard, lemon and olive oil (we don't use vinegar for our...More

After PETA’s vegan dessert contest held in Makati Ave., we were so hungry and visited Corner Tree Cafe, located in the heart of Makati Ave, for dinner. At the onset, we were greeted by the amosphere of the cafe which was cozy though a bit...dark from average lighting. Waiter took our orders, but took them about 35 mins to serve them. The vegetarian foods serve in this cafe were acceptable though a bit pricey for their taste. If there was any redeeming factor, that should be their arroz ala cubana. It tasted good and justified its high price. My daughter wasn’t so happy with their spaghetti. You can see it from her smile while eating it, in the pics attached. She finds it dry. CR was located outside the cafe. Not so convenient. Staff took 15 mins to give us the bill, even though there wasn’t so much people around that time. Couldnt say the cafe was bad nor good. Am just neutral about it.More

This was my second visit to the restaurant. Unfortunately, it was pretty much the same as the first. The menu is large with many choices. However, the food is just average and the portions tend to be on the smaller size. The prices are above...average though and adding another 20% to the bill makes the meal even less worthwhile. I have learned my lesson and will not return for a third time.More

You’ll come here wanting to order most things on the menu. This place is a great choice for the veggie traveller. No it’s not the cheapest place to eat but I believe the quality of food makes up for it. Also it’s okay to treat...yourself, trust me it does not break the bank. The lentil soup is gorgeous, really fragrant and yummy. I had spaghetti with broccoli and pine nuts (super boring I know) but it was done beautifully and it was what I was craving! My partner had the Sunday lunch and his Nut Loaf was really interesting. The only downside to this place is that I felt we were rushed out. I was considering ordering a desert because they looked so tempting. But next minute the lady comes over with the bill that nobody asked for...More

We had Sunday lunch at Corner Tree and found it to be just okay, not special. The food lacked taste or even good seasoning and the service was not very good - things kept being forgotten and we often had to ask for things more...than twice. I would say the restaurant is okay if you want vegetarian food but otherwise, not really worth going out of one’s way for dining.More
