Description: Milky Way Café, opened in December 2002, is a creation from Chef J. Gamboa of Cirkulo Restaurant. Going back to his roots, Chef J. Gamboa wanted to create a dining and meeting space with nostalgic highlights, incorporating details from Milky Way's 40 year history. The result is a bright and airy space designed by Arch. Gary Coscolluela. Narra walls, granite counters, molded ceilings, soliha chairs, black and ivory flooring define the restaurant's old world charm. Shelves are filled with special home-made products from Milky Way's line of preserves and native delicacies.The Milky Way Café offers an international menu typical of hotel coffee shops, without the 5-star prices. There is a wide selection of Filipino dishes that Milky Way is famous for, prepared by the original cooks from the 1960s. Favorites include Crispy Hito with Bagoong and Mustasa, Baby Crispy Pata, the Award Winning Milky Way Kare Kare, US Bistek Tagalog, Tokwa't Baboy, Pancit Luglug, Dinuguan at Puto and not to be missed are the Milky Way Halo Halo and Homemade Ice Creams.The Café is open Mondays to Saturdays from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm. Its intimate setting is ideal for lunch, merienda, and dinner with the family or for business. Function rooms for 10 to 200 Persons, free basement parking and elevator access are available.

“It's like eating in a 5-star hotel without the expensive bill”
Reviewed September 8, 2011

I went there with my whole family last weekend and it was actually our first time to eat there. The food are really great! We ordered typical Filipino foods like Kare-Kare, Lechon Kawali, salad, lumpiang ubod and Halo-Halo for dessert. The staffs are very approachable too :) It was indeed a great first experience at MilkyWay Cafe!

The price is really worth it. It's like eating in a 5-star hotel but without the expensive bill. My parents promised me that we'll go back again next month. Looking forward to meet Chef Gamboa on my next visit!
