Tymad's has been around in Cebu city for quite a long while now, but patrons never tire of the place! Chef Philippe never runs out of new innovations when it comes to his desserts! The Apple tart tatin is forever a crowd favorite and now comes his RUBIS " THE HEART CAKE" white swiss chocolate mousse with red fruit coulis... More

Honestly, I just drink earl grey hot chocolate here because serving is big. They use big size mug. It cost 150 pesos. I'd rather drink this than coffee. They have free filtered water. Hehe. They have newspaper and magazine for you to read. Cakes are also good like my all time fave Black Forest. They close every Monday only, whole... More

The croissant is amazing, crunchy, light, fluffy, buttery and tasty all at once! I ordered the omelets those were good, but i think their scrambled eggs are heavenly.

Really good to get a 'real' French croissant and hot home made French bread. Breakfasts really recommended especially in an area where a good breakfast is hard to come by. We boycotted breakfast in the nearby hotel to eat here every morning.

The Pistachio cake and the chocolate mousse were great, highly textured with fine ingredients...the kind that speaks about getting what you ordered for. As a chocolate monster myself, these two completed my dinner experience together with a green tea.

I love the crepes. Savory or sweet, both are good. The savory food are fine. But deserts is a must! The place gets full every night time on weekends. I think reserving a table would help out.

I discovered a notable French Bistro which maintains the high standards of all your favorite dishes of French cuisine in a relaxed Bistro ambience I highly recommend the salade chèvre chaud, onglet steak which is most economical at just 790, and clearly the Chef's passion are all the fish dishes. It's amazing that they are actually a "bakery" with a... More

The desserts are great! The Trianon is a must try! The price is also reasonable. The location is a bit hidden but Streetscape is nearby.

Would have have not discovered this lovely cafe without my lovely friend Nikky who I have not seen in years! Great coffee and Choco drinks. My ceasar salad was ok as there was too little greens and too much of bacon. Was very passable though! Wimmo n Nikky both chose Lorraine quiche and both said it could be a bit... More

I lived in Cebu for 2 years and this was in my top 3 places to eat. Everything on the menu is great but the cakes & pastries are without doubt the best in Cebu. The service is excellent, friendly staff, regular top ups of service water, efficient and quick with orders and short waiting times. The place isn't cheap... More
