If you want real coffee, this place is for you. Amazing breakfast, coffee drinks and cakes, baked by the owner himself. It's not cheap, but tasty!

The breakfast here was the best in the area, as was the wifi which is a rarity in the Philippines! Staff were also very friendly.

Had a delicious omelette early in the morning. Took us almost 45 minutes to get the food. Coffee is nothing special. WiFi is ok but slow. Very nice French guy who runs the place. Good servicemind. Prices a bit high.

One of the few places opening early (about 7am). Good breakfast with unlimited brewed coffee, fresh juice and homemade bread. Long serving times. They offer an airport taxi for 2.000 Php. We used it and can only recommend: punctual, not too fast driving and friendly.
