Dropped by for a quick snack before going home from school! Apparently, it's named Cafe 205 because it stands on... 205 Katipunan Avenue. HAHAHA OK.

As we were the only customers at that time, the server (I did not get his name) was very eager and accommodating, but not to the point of being annoying. Good.

The place reminded me of a countryside cafe with the style of the tables and chairs. A little Christmas tree on each table was a nice touch to the interiors.

Ordered the 205 Croque Monsieur (since anything with the place's name should be good, right..?) and a slice of Sansrival.

Serving time was... Long. I mean, how long can making a sandwich take? D: when the sandwich was finally served, i was... Disappointed. It was just two pieces of bread, with a slice of ham and square cheese inside, cut diagonally into two. It was covered on one side by a layer of soft, melted mozzarella cheese. Fries were served along with it.

First, I felt like the ham was just something you could buy anywhere, and the same with the cheese square. The mozzarella lacked the characteristic stringy texture... It was more creamy than stringy. Well maybe that's just my preference. The fries... Were those pre-packed fries... I could cook those at home. D:

For a hundred-plus peso sandwich, I didn't feel like it was worth it. I could make one at home :(

The sansrival was nothing to rave about as well, but at least it tasted and felt like sansrival. The cream wasn't too heavy.

A so-so merienda it was for me. At least the place has parking though, and that is gold in a Katipunan establishment!

After devouring my miso ramen from next door, and since I have low EQ and could not wait for my friends to finish their food, I decided to check out the next door neighbor, Cafe 205.

Upon entering, the place gave a feel of a high end caf. I like the wooden chairs and the white walls with mirrors 128076

I remember a friend recommending their Bread Pudding so that's what I ordered. While waiting for my desert take out, I browsed through their menu. They have all-day breakfast!!! 128131 happy dance. And their other food seems to hold much promise! And it's not expensive. Woohoo!

I finally got my Pudding after waiting for it for what seemed like forever! (They toasted/heated it up and topped it with ice cream) so hurriedly I brought it to my friends. No surprise here, when I opened it, the ice cream was melting fast. So we began devouring it.

Toasted on the sides and a little soft on the inside with raisins every now and then. All in all, it was just okay. It would've been better if either the pudding was thicker and more moist and soft or if it were a little bit cheaper. It doesn't look and taste like a Php150 dessert for me 128513

But!!! I gladly will go back and try their other stuff in the menu.

The place was new-doubt if it was own last week; the new chairs still had that fresh woody scent, while guitar music was playing. Desserts were interesting but not many in selection, but I was pleasantly surprised that they had breakfast all day and other savoury meals. What stood out was the Sticky Toffee Pudding in a Jar, which they serve in-store à la mode or sell for takeaway! It had the right toffee flavour at the bottom and the right amount of sweetness, while the Choco Lava Cake (also à la mode), was rich with a thick chocolate sauce. My friend had espresso and I hot lemon tea, which was unfortunately the bagged sort and was the only flavour available at the time. We met the charming owner, who apparently once ran a baking business that included her Toffee Pudding.
