A true cafe/coffeeshop with nice qualified working people. The location is great if you need to kill time while waiting for your flight. The wifi is great, even though is not provided by them but by the airport itself. They also have good electrical sockets for international travellers and even 4 usb socket-chargers on the walls on my table. I... More

Just about every meal on the menu is served with a bowl of rice. "A real teste of Pinoy" said a over friendly waitor. Great place while awaiting your outbound flight.

Food is good Service is standard and staff are friendly Price is within reason Overall, it's a convenient place to eat, and you might be serenaded by music of performers just outside the cafe who play for money.

P175 for a meager rice bowl - exactly like the dimsum steam rice which costs p65... What a farce. Your money is better spent on the steam rice inside the domestic departure terminal or ultimate burger also inside. I don't mind paying the price but this was too much.

I had some time before my flight so i had some lunch at this cafe. I wasn't expecting much because is was airport food but i was surprised. I have chicken/pork Adobo and my girlfriend had some chicken plate. I'll attach pictures below. The service was also pretty fast.

Our family usually eats here whenever we have early flights to Cebu. We always love their pochero, one of the best we have tasted! They serve it fast as well. No hassle!

Nobody heard me! 3) I went to the cashier and asked for the menu to get their attention. 4) waitresses wear more than 4 different outfit designs. Some Mach the color theme but with different fabrics!!! 5) the waitress was lazy, unfriendly... More

It's actually a good place to wait for checking in. A cup of coffee or the cocoa was okay. I did have a chance to have their breakfast menu and it was kinda tasty.

First off, it took more than 30 minutes for them to serve 2 iced coffees and 1 Americano for me, my partner and my dad. Iced blends tasted funny, it was too sweet and tasted something else (I don't know what). Then, we waited a couple more minutes for them to give us our bill. We paid and had to... More
