I previously read reviews regarding the restaurant before going there since I was planning to take my girlfriend on a date for our anniversary. There were several comments about how the parking space was bad, and upon reaching the area, it was indeed a fact...since the road was too narrow and could only accommodate one car at a time. The security guards were not very welcoming. They immediately asked if I had a reservation, but unfortunately, I had no time to call in advance since we just decided last minute to go there and hope that we could "walk-in" inside the restaurant. They had a rude attitude and looked inside our car as if we were doing something bad. I immediately felt pissed off. Upon reaching inside the restaurant, the place was unexpectedly nice. I like the outdoor look and cozy feel of the scenery. The food however was not good. The pancakes were a bit too soft, and the other food that we ordered were average in taste. For the the price, it was reasonable and affordable. Overall, we were disappointed with our experience. I expected something good based from the other reviews but it turned out differently for us.More

Had their spinach artichoke, Filipino platter and we added corned beef and longganisa 😋 Plus buttermilk pancake The spinach artichoke is yummy. The breakfast food is good. The pancake is so-so Will be back to try other stuff next time. Parking is a bit challenging...specially if you are bringing a big car. Good thing I just brought my sedan.More

Went in to eat today with friends. Had a hard time parking and when finally got a seat, its time to move our vehicle because the other car needs to move. The other table had a Vido Shoot and RUDELY asked us to keep quiet....We were in a jolly mood of creative meeting and we were offended. It is a commercial space and they did not rent the entire resto. Hello? feeling Entitled much? We asked to see the manger in charge of the resto to complain as paying customers. GUESS WHAT? No manager-in-charge. Like duh? BTW, food was unsatisfactory. Will not go back again.More

Disclaimer: This review is for my opinion only. No hatred. So ayun nga we went here with my friends to experience a rustic morning. First last Dec.21 then, Dec.26 The ambience: The place is nice. Para kang nagbreakfast sa labas ng bahay mong may garden....Pero mind you dapat maaga pa lang andun ka na kasi mainit na around 10am onwards. Kung sa loob kayo kakain ume-echo naman mga boses nyo so rinig nyo usapan sa kabilang table. The food is a little bland not just for me. I’m talking about the omelet here (Baka nakalimutan lagyan ng salt). Then, yung waffle nila kapag tumagal na sa plate ang tigas na. Yung pancake nila malaki lang hindi ako nasarapan. Masarap pa yung tinimpla mo sa bahay mo(gets?) No problem with the serving size except for the platter (All filipino Platter). Yung rice nila is good for 2persons only or 1 for big appetite. Again, with the servings of their waffle and pancake no problem, malaki pero yung taste for me kulang sa sarap.More

To welcome 2020 us soon to be oldies decided to have brunch. After all the evening festivities during Christmas this is a welcome change. The place looked like it used to be a house turned restaurant but it was converted warmly. Parking was an issue...but you can park at the church across the street so you dont have to get up and move your car if youre double parked. Parking is a problem during peak hours and trust me you dont wanna get bothered when you have to move your car. Food was amazing and very very well priced. Everything was good and the servings are big. Obviously they didnt cheat on the servings to make up for rent. Loved the homey feel from the interiors to the servers. It looked like Sonia’s Garden without the limited food options and long drive. Get whatever you want on the menu and you will be satisfied. I do not drink coffee but apparently all my friends love their coffee. This is a perfect place for brunch and the ambiance is very cozy and welcoming.More

This is probably the best breakfast i have had in years. Their sumptuous meals just makes driving from QC to marikina all worth it. I fell in love with their salad - the dressing is simply the best i have tasted (yet). For those who...are on diet though, do not indulge alone in their meals because their serving is quite big - i would consider it too much actually for the price you paid :)More

We had a good time. Venue is great. It was very cozy and relaxing. Food is great as well. They have big servings which you can share with friends. You have to come early. parking can be challenging as many people eat there.

It’s not easy to find. You have to pass a narrow alley to reach it. You usually have to wait 15-20 minutes to get a table. A big portion of its dining area is located outdoors. Al fresco. No air-conditioning. And yet, people from everywhere...brave the traffic and flock to this unmistakably rustic restaurant. It is surrounded by dense greenery which provides natural cooling. Prices are reasonable and servings are more than ample. The setting, the general atmosphere, the refreshing feeling that you are away from Metro Manila’s noise and grime . . . all these and more contribute to the immense popularity of Rustic Mornings, truly a welcome sanctuary.More

Went here with my family to start my daughter's birthday celebration. Thank God at that time there were still some tables outside that are available. The place was pretty cozy and the staff were very courteous. The food was great, though pricey but the servings...were pretty large so it's worth it. The waffle churros was a surprise as it was indeed crunchy like churros. The meals were all tasty and each meal was actually quite big for 1 person. Parking area may be good enough for 5 or 6 vehicles only. Place is ideal for a relaxing meal away from the hustle and bustle of a mall. It actually gave us the same feeling of eating a hearty breakfast in Tagaytay, only that this place is just less than 2 kms away from our residence. Will definitely be back.More

Place is nice and cozy. Food is okay, though we just ordered breakfast set meals. Pancake is so so. French toast tastes better. Mushroom soup is good. Parking is a bit small to accommodate a lot of customers. But i will still come back to...taste their pasta and pizza.More

Rustic Mornings serves all-day breakfast but their menu also includes lunch dishes like pasta. I don’t think they have a separate menu for lunch.
