Coming off the long drive from Manila, we visited Paoay Chuch first, then looked around for some place to have breakfast around 8:30 AM. Herencia was still closed as the others on that road so we were glad to see this restaurant ready to serve food.

They have 2 single toilets for male & female and a wash up area on the side. Not sure if they also have toilets indoors.

I found the food pricy for the quality/taste. I ordered a rice meal with longganisa and egg. The longganisa was dry and almost flavorless.

There were just 2 people to attend to the 10 of us during that time so it took a while before all the orders were served.

Fortunately, we arrived at around 11:15 am when only 1 other table was occupied. We were a group of two families 10 in all. 6 looong tables in the alfresco area. 3 tables indoor. Come here if you are willing to wait about 45 minutes for your food to arrive.

They have no efficient system for taking orders and serving. Totally a mom and pop operation without the owners present. They told us the owners were in the US.

No manager and just Ill trained staff trying to make the best of a bad situation.

Food was decent enough. Except their menu showed roast chicken as a thigh and a leg. We had 3 orders and they all came as the backbone used for soup stock. I looked for a manager and not finding one went to their back area kitchen. The cook admitted that they ran out of leg and thighs so just substituted the backbone. Roast chicken came as fried backbone chicken.

Front Staff: 1 person handling the coffee bar
