Have enjoyed the vegan food here since last year. Decided to do take-out of kare-kare for 10 and 5 servings plus extra faux bagoong servings. Delicious!

Nice place for a vegetarian light meal. Good for a business lunch! The fried zucchini was really good, as well as the quinoa salad.

They have wide food selection. I ordered the North African Vegetable Stew, it was great. The Sicilian Tomato Soup is wonderful! I would love to have more. However, the area of the restaurant is small. You can hear the discussion from the other table. We can't concentrate on our own group discussion It was kinda noisy especially when they are... More

HI there! Apologies for the late food! Will check what happened there (sorry just saw this!) but very happy to hear you enjoyed the food! Yes, the place is small so sometimes when there is a loud group, everyone starts to talk louder (and yes, the loud blender is a problem). Happy to know you will come back! :-) More

Incredible little vegetarian cafe in metro Manila. Wonderful food, amazing selection and a great way to try some traditional Filipino dishes reinvented without the meat. Highly recommended

The food is highly satisfactory, and the Café feels so cozy; it's also great that they classify their food if they're for Vegans, Vegetarians (those who might still be consuming cheese, dairy and eggs in their meals) and if the food is gluten-free.

Being a vegetarian is one of the hardest things to do in the Philippines, sadly there is just no concept of vegetarian here...basically a bowl of salad seems to be the local understanding of a vegetarian diet here! Corner tree therefore truly is a welcome change/concept here in Manila..happy to see that menu is really spread out among several cuisines... More

Hi there, thanks a lot for your review! Too bad you were disappointed with some of the food. What about the cauli fritters did you hate? (If you don't mind my asking) .. was it the flavour ? (it was an Indian thing) or were they not cooked well? And apologies for the slow and not great service. Will discuss... More

Super-excellent! It's hard to find healthy food in Manila that isn't over-processed, over-sugared, and over-priced. I love this cafe so much I could live here. :)

Visit Manila once and twice to this restaurant in 2 consecutive days. It's how good the taste of the food in this restaurant. We ordered many dishes and all were satisfied. If you come to Manila try this restaurant. Even non vegan will like the taste. For sure.

I haven't been to Corner Tree Café for a really long time and couldn't quite remember what the food was like. I was very happy that the menu did not disappoint. We had the garden salad and the quinoa salad for starter. The latter was excellent. The solo portion for 190 pesos is ideal for a starter. It is served... More

Description
Corner Tree Cafe is a Vegetarian / Vegan Cafe. We serve food from Asia to Africa, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas in a cosy intimate setting. We also offer good wines, local beers and some house cocktails. You don't have to be a vegetarian to enjoy our delicious food. In fact most of our customers are omnivores, but vegetarians will feel right at home here (we also serve some gluten-free dishes). To add to our regular menu, we have weekly specials sometimes inspired by current events or international days. Booking is advisable. Children welcome.
