A good place to work or study since it's quiet.
However, there's only one socket available. Better be there early to secure that spot. If you ever get that spot, downside is the table is too low. Will make your neck hurt looking at your laptop.

I suggest they add more sockets especially that a huge number of their customers are students who find their place suitable for studying. Doesn't have to be in every table. At least two in every area.

With regards to food, I always get tomato & herb. Never fails. Consistent taste across all branches I went to 128077🏻

Had the Eggs Sammy (salmon instead of bacon), my bfast choice oftentimes. It was delicious except that the egg was already closed to being hard boiled. No egg yolk flowed.

We also tried the bacon omelette which I found to be rather oily. It could've better also if they had the bacon bits toasted to add texture to the usual omelette.

Lastly, the mixed berry pancake was what I loved being a person who is watching her sugar level. It wasn't sweet--not the pancake mix nor the berries.

Falls off the bones 128523
Their coleslaw is perfect to pair with it. Compliments the somehow sweet sauce of the ribs.

Their Black Velvet is one of the few cakes that I like. Not too sweet. Also, it doesn't make use of whipped cream but cream cheese. 128523

We came her at 8pm already but still packed with customers. The waiters took quite a long time to refill our glasses of water. Could have been better if they just provide each table with a pitcher

A good place to chill since there's no other dine-in customer. They usually cater to delivery orders. Its location is good since it's quite secluded so it'll really make you focus on whatever you are working on.

Today, we had 18" Dear Darla for Php685. I prefer this since it isn't oily & not much meat. Makes me enjoy pizza less the guilt 128514

I just hope though they work on the debit/credit card terminal connectivity issue.

It was my first time dining in here last Friday.
Had their Eggs Florentine which had sauteed spinash and onion instead of meat.
It was delicious except that I found the spinach a bit salty that's why I wasn't able to consume it all.
I'll be back to try their other offerings.

And oh, the waitress was really smiling the whole time. She was also very attentive 128077🏻

Had brunch here earlier today.

I ordered Vigan Longganisa which I found to be less garlicky than expected.
Regarding the fried rice that came with it, I expected it to be less sticky. However, it was. It seemed like just some steamed rice that they placed into the pan & put some garlic. Voila! Fried rice 128514

Miggy wanted to really order Carbonara but with my recent experience of a rather salty carbonara, I urged him to order something else. Glad he took my advice. He got Salisbury Steak instead. According to him, the meat was rather bland but was compensated with the sauce. Nothing really special though. Also, he didn't like the rice. It seemed like it was undercooked.

Customer service-wise, they gave me a bottle of vinegar but no saucer came with it. When I requested from one of their waiters, he pointed me to the kitchen staff. I was puzzled as to why. Good thing another waitress overheard and gave me the saucer I needed. However, the saucer was still wet. I wouldn't mind wiping it off but if they stack their saucers like that, it just doesn't seem unhygienic.
When we asked for our bill, same waiter whom I asked saucer from pointed to the cash register. I didn't get what he was trying to say again 128514 So I requested for it from another waiter. Yes, he gave us our bill but didn't seem glad to be of service though. Most of their crews today just seemed disinterested in flashing a smile at 11am.

Was craving for some maki awhile ago. Good thing I remembered seeing this place at The Rock.

Miggy ordered Chicken Teriyaki which he found to be delicious. It wasn't salty like those he have tasted in other restos.

I had California Gunkan. I liked it better than usual California Maki as it contained lesser rice & more seaweed. I just didn't like dipping it in the soysauce as I found it to be so salty.

For these 2 orders, we only spent a little less than 400. Worth it! 128077🏻

Another aspect I liked in this place is that their placemats have crossword puzzle, word search, suduko & a beginner's guide to Japanese. These kept us preoccupied while waiting for our food which arrived in approximately 10minutes.
