We eat here because this is the only restaurant I saw before checking-in in the airport. 1.) The service is very slow.. Need to standup and get the menu in the counter. 2.) Wait almost an hour for palabok 3.) Price is expensive for the quality 4.) There are many service crew but no matter how many they are, they... More

Bad service. Hot chocolate taken away due to burnt taste (yuk) and not replaced and expected to be paid for. Cup of coffee was ok but still not very good. Not recommended to visit here, I definitely won't again. Better to go else Waiter was Mark in pictures below.

Location. Located at Mactan's domestic departure entrance, very accessible for everyone with empty stomach. Price. A bit pricey for a local service yet decent on dish servings. Taste. Ordered breakfast with hot choco, say taste is average at 6/10. Atmosphere. Expected busy as its along side airport and on A/C Turn off: Some flies flying around while enjoying breakfast

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!
