I tried their american breakfast which is also good and reasonable with its price. Their must try home-made butter & chocolate croisant perfectly blend with their coffee.

Their espresso isn't really great, the sand on the floor a bit outdated as an idea. The Wifi hardly works, but to hang out once in a while, chill a bit after diving the beautiful waters of Panagsama Beach not a bad place at all.

Having had breakfast and lunch here a handful of times, I'm pleased to say I've enjoyed having coffee and food here each and every time. The service is good, the food is nice and the prices are pretty reasonable. I will be back here time and time again :D

A cute and airy french cafe that has the BEST chocolate croissants ever. I didn't even know that i liked chocolate croissants until I fought my friend for the last bite.THEY ARE THAT GOOD. The owner Sebastian is incredibly friendly and just so nice. I love the sand floor inside the cafe- gives it the really "beachy" atmosphere! I think... More

I have eaten Breakfast, Baguette with Camenbert and farmer's Ham. A nice surprise for a small village.

Nice little spot to stop for a croissant (baked on site) and a coffee. The owner Sebastian is particularly friendly and informative. Recommend

A lot of reviews say that this place is overpriced, and it is expensive; however, given how difficult it is to get some ingredients to a beach on a small Philippine island, the price is understandable. Friendly staff and great crepes and pastries. Very relaxed atmosphere... I felt comfortable just getting a cup of coffee and sitting with a book... More

Visited the cafe as I need a caffine fix, totally disappointed with the coffee. I went to the 7-11 and get better coffee than here.

Ordering poached eggs and getting broken eggs with no yolk, reeking of vinegar and soggy bread meant we didn't go back - went to pleasure principle instead.
