“Good food, great service”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

We walked from Station 1 to this cafe to have lunch, I think it was a 2.5km walk, took us 30 minutes to get there, and it was worth it. We had their carbonara and angus burger. The carbonara was fine, but the angus burger was really yummy. Food was a bit pricey, but it was worth it. All the waitresses were very nice and accommodating.

“Delicious and original flavored pancakes!”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

The pancakes are huge and they come in so many different flavors with original toppings!
Really good for sharing. The hot chocolate was really good but so creamy and thick, I had to ask for extra milk to thin it down.

“All Around Amazing”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

Stayed in Boracay for one week and had 3 lunches at Sunnyside. The menu is awesome, the food is fresh and great quality, and the staff are really great. The bacon mango grilled cheese and corned beef sandwich are both fantastic. Easily the best lunch spot around the island!

“The best lunch place in Boracay”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

During our stay at Boracay we went there 4-5 times and it didn't let us down once. Even though they got some strange food combinations (ex. grilled cheese w. bacon and mango jam) it taste lovely. If you're in the mood for pancakes this is also the place to go! They serve really good and really big pancakes with all kind of toppings. The pancakes aren't ones you can handle alone so I recommend to share an order.
All in all one of our favourite places in Boracay.

“Very clean food, tasty.”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

Between station 2 and 3, it's brightly lit, open late, well air-conditioned and serves very fresh, very clean and tasty food using fresh ingredients. The kitchen is open to the restaurant encouraging cleanliness. Soups were excellent!

Their unusual herb garden resides at the front door (see photo)

We ate there several times during our 10 day stay.
