Before or after a day of diving in Malapascua you have to eat here! Bread is home made and the portioning are large! The taste of the food really hits the spot! Loved their Breakfast and Baked Macaroni!

Cosy atmosphere, fast and motivated waitresses and free wifi. The crêpe with banana and nutella tasted SO good. We also liked the vegetarian burger and the falafel wrap. Would definitely recommend.
