I wasn't able to try other food from their menu, but the one dish that I was able to try was really good. This was a spicy tuyo (salted fish) with a cheesy tomato omelette and ginger vinegar. This is a classic Filipino breakfast that is a favorite among locals. There are also other kinds of cuisine to choose from if you're not very fond of Asian breakfast.

They also have a cafe that serves different kinds of cakes and desserts. They have a wide variety of coffee to choose from, as well.

Favorite part:

The Doll house

The different kinds of interesting art pieces around the restaurant made me fall in love with the cafe.

I was especially enthralled by the doll house that they hung in the dessert nook in the cafe:

They were perched on the side of the dollhouse, like they were having a little tea party.

The Paintings

I'm not really sure if mermaids have a special connection to mermaids because a lot of pictures of them were used to decorate the place. Not that I was complaining since I am a huge fan of these mythical creatures as well. This beautiful drawing hung on their wall was my favorite.

 

Puerto Princesa city is a myriad of different destinations for both foreign and local tourists. This cafe is one of my top recommendations for those who would want good food, interesting ambiance, and a good experience!
