About
Corner Tree Cafe is a Vegetarian / Vegan Cafe. We serve food from Asia to Africa, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas in a cosy intimate setting. We also offer good wines, local beers and some house cocktails. You don't have to be a vegetarian to enjoy our delicious food. In fact most of our customers are omnivores, but vegetarians will feel right at home here (we also serve some gluten-free dishes). To add to our regular menu, we have weekly specials sometimes inspired by current events or international days. Booking is advisable. Children welcome.

My daughter is a vegan and insisted we visited this restaurant while holidaying in the Philippines. I am glad she did. The food was delicious and well presented. Staff are very friendly and the restaurant has a great atmosphere. I’m definitely going to start eating...More

This location is frequented my 99% foreign western tourists. I love vegan and vegetarian foods! But this place scores poorly overall. First of all I visited this place two times. First time I ordered several appetizers as my only meal- and they tasted good! Second...More

Very sorry to hear about your disappointing experience. If it's ok, may I ask which dishes in particular were salty? So I can check today and make adjustments? I eat there almost daily and once in a while I'll feel something was over salted but...More

Found this place by pure coincidence! Cozy, clean, and all vegetarian. I had a dumpling with Harissa along with a glass of white wine and it was delicious.

Tucked away along a busy street and under large beautiful trees, the Corner Tree Cafe is the perfect hideaway in the heart of Makati in Manila. My visit was at the peak of Manila’s treacherous summer season, and this was just the place to cool...More

Finding a completely vegan/vegetarian place in the Philippines is a chore. And even if they "say" they're vegetarian/vegan, you can't be 100% sure that you're not getting a beef or chicken stock based soup. It's happened several times that we ordered a vegetarian salad, and...More
