Madge Cafe is located in the Lapaz Market. They serve very good coffee and is popular among travellers. You need the park your vehicle at the entrance of the market and walk through the stalls to reach Madge.

Still the best place to meet up with friends and enjoy local native brew. Recently tried their ibos and it was delicious. I always order the media cafe. Also love the ambience.

This café was recommended by our Airbnb host in Iloilo city for drinks and pastries. She even gave us someone to look for to take care of us in her absence. (We really love how Ilonggos are very thoughtful and caring!) We enjoyed our drinks...More

For people like me who love the smell of coffee but can't stomach it, there are alternatives. Their fruit shakes and concoctions are varied and pretty good. Their cakes are also delicious. I see people ordering hot fares like noodles and soups so that would...More
