Margie’s is very popular in Butuan for their chocolate cake, the cookie monster.. it comes in different cake sizes. When you dine in Margies, try their pomelo salad & my favorite mango shake with full of real mango bits when you drink. Price is reasonable....More

Love their food especially their desserts but their space is tight for me and I'm not even a big person, or maybe I'm just not used to it. They do have great tasting food but man does it take awhile to get cooked. We asked...More
