Everytime we spend the weekend in Moalboal to dive - the coffee shop is always the best place to have breakfast before we go off for our first dive - food is great and the staff are very nice.

This place is nice and beautifully decorated. The feel and ambiance is really relaxing. Love the sandwiches and their coffee is the best I could say among other restaurants in the area. Great staff, very friendly and the owner is very accommodating. A bit pricey for me compared to other restaurants in the area. There is wifi but didn't work for me. Worth a visit for some ice cream.

well to be honest, there's nothing special about this place other than the floor was laid with sand (which is cool). its just a place to get regular breakfast/food. loved the scrambled eggs though.

pleasant staff and owner

While casually exploring the streets of Panagsama, we saw this little cafe and decided to step inside and have a cold drink. We instantly fell in love with the decor and atmosphere, and decided we would return the next morning for breakfast. And I'm glad we did! We had the native breakfast, which was very satisfying and cooked to perfection. I would have loved to have tried the baguette or some of the other foods, but since I am gluten intolerant, I was restricted. We very much enjoyed sitting there drinking our tea/coffee while listening to the music.

I've never been to France, and my experience with french restaurants/cafes is limited, but this place has the charm which makes one want to visit France. The owner seems like a very nice guy too when we briefly conversed. I congratuate him for this lovely cafe which mimics the nice relaxing atmosphere of the place in which it is located.
