One of the best tuna melts I’ve had! The crepes were also amazing 😋 it’s also a great location, and a nice atmosphere. Definitely recommend this place

My boyfriend and I passed by this café and heard a live-band playing, so we went inside to check it out… We decided to choose a dish and drink for each other: he chose a piña colada for me, to go with the vegan burger...of plantain patty marinated in adobo sauce, I ordered him grilled pork belly with rice, a lychee mojito. Both drinks were really good and strong, and my boyfriend really loved my choice for him. It was tasty and savoury, and the rice just cooked the way he likes his rice. As for me, the first few bites were utter heaven. There is not a lot of good vegan places in Moalboal, but this dish is definitely a good solid try. They are not there yet as the taste started to get a bit too salty. Maybe they can counter that with less salt and a bit of sweetness? The staff were very friendly and open, always genuinely smiling. Especially the ‘mama’ of the young staff, who quickly stole my heart with her story and warm smile. In the mean time there was a live band playing and, as we were sitting more in the front of the place, we could still hear it, but it didn’t dominate so we couldn’t converse anymore. We went back to Smooth Café with some friends we’ve made, and had a harder time talking over the music. The quality of the live bands changes constantly, but don’t let that deter you from trying out the menu at this cozy café!More

Unfortunately the service was non-existent for us, and by the end I didn’t even have the patience to explain it at the time. There are a lot of positive reviews for this place and I have no doubt that they have delivered for most of...the patrons (reviewers) but sadly for us, our experience fell through the cracks. When we entered there was a great atmosphere, lots of friendly staff about. There was also a band on keeping people entertained. We were sat to the right of the stage, slightly out of sight of either bar/service area. Ordering was not an issue. Both of us had Gin Fizz cocktails which were fine. We also both had the ribs which were described as a house special and fall off the bone. The ribs were dry and tough. They were seasoned/glazed but nothing that could really save the meat. After eating about half of ribs I just gave up. The accompanying sides were ok, although my wife didn’t eat the vegetables as they were quite firm - I personally didn’t mind that, although somewhere in the middle is not doubt a happy medium for most people. The issue for us was that no one came to check on us during our approx 2hr stay, and whilst the food was a bit of a disappointment we were quite happy to just put that aside and have another drink whilst the band was on. But no one came and it wasn’t easy to catch the eye of anyone. So I eventually went up and asked to pay. The bill was brought over swiftly, no one asked about our experience, and at this point I was keen to just leave. As I say, I am sure our situation is probably a one off occurrence. But, from our experience I cannot recommend the ribs.More

And this is a all in one a coffee shop with resto bar.Kudos to their bar tender who recommended to us their must try food and drinks.More

All the reviews mention the amazing coffee, the chill vibes and good food which it certainly has. However, another highlight for us has to be the staff who are so attentive and so welcoming. Keep an eye out for a waitress called Gigi who is...usually behind the till. An absolutely amazing person with an infectious smile and great personality. Food wise, the pork Kare Kare is amazing and I recommend a cappuccino with a slice of their calamansi cheesecake. Heaven 👌More

Good food. Nice selection of vegetarian and even vegan options. Very nice watermelon juice. Live music is nice but could be a little too loud for talking.

We have ate here everyday and we simply love it. Great for breakfast lunch or dinner. The pork kare kare is gluten free which is great as my wife has celiac. I’ve sampled the menu and haven’t had a bad meal yet. There are other...really good options close but this has to be in the rotation.More
