“Just ok”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

I was expecting more based on the previous reviews. I ordered a salmon and shrimp pasta (spaghetti) for 390 pesos and a lemon cheesecake for 150 pesos. The spaghetti was quite a small serving. They had run out of salmon and the pasta was a little dry. It tasted pleasant though. The cheesecake was bland and I could not taste the lemon at all. It was as pretty as a picture though. All in all it was just ok and sadly nothing to rave about.

“Expensive!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Lemon is the place to go if you are in the central mall in Boracay – and not on a budget. Lemon is mostly a sandwiches place for light meals. Its food is very good, not the reason for my relatively low rating. The low rating comes from the price of the food: HIGH. We had four sandwiches and four drinks: pesos 1,800 including a modest tip. Given its location, howdver, Lemon does a roaring business. So there must be other people besides out family who do not mind paying a fortune for four simple meals. At least, however, the food is good so you don’t feel completely ripped off – and no one is forcing you to eat there after taking a look at the menu and its prices.

“Cakes and Desserts Galore!”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

The cafe is splendid if you want to take a dish on sweets. Even if you do not have a sweet tooth (like me), I loved their Blueberry Cheesecake. It's texture and taste is not over powering.

Service is standard.

“Good food, great desserts”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Everything we ordered was fantastic. Big servings too. But I really fell in love with their blueberry cheese cake. It is one of the best I've tasted so far. Service is great and staff are very friendly. I just hope they can find a bigger place. :)

“Airy and comfortable place..decadent desserts”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Was there yesterday ...tried the chocolate truffle with iced coffee to go along with it :) ambience was nice and clean/ spacious . Chocolate truffle was rich and a real taste of that dark chocolate not laced with too much sweetness. The iced coffee was made from brewed coffee and iced..with that strong coffee flavour( I'm a coffee lover incidentally) the presentation of the dessert- well plated and the iced coffee with side side container of syrup and cream for the guest to mix. Overall I'm impressed ! The place and dessert is addictive aside from it as a relaxing place to hang out...needs another visit !!
