Weekend lunch at Mary Grace and had the usual: seafood pasta (divided into two plates) and the mango shrimp salad. Still good though the serving in this branch takes longer than usual.

The food are delicious 1002410024100241002410024
I had Dory Cream Based Pasta and it so good. @380php it is reasonable for the price.

The Mango Bene 10024100241002410024 the slice of this cake was so generous and big!! It was like I was eating silvanas but on a form of a cake 128513

The service a little bit slow. Specifically when we billed out. And waiting for our change was like waiting for your orders to be served.

We've been lucky to get seats at a busy afternoon one Saturday at SM North branch. Restaurant crew are friendly and alert. We liked the fact that their toilet is well-maintained and interior is dainty and modern. They definitely know how Filipino culture should be like that is why they are popular and growing.

What we ordered:
Vigan longganisa w/ kesong puti sandwich
Smoked Salmon in cream pasta

My Mom and I happily shared our meal. It is exactly what we needed for bonding and spending quality time. You guys should try it!

This cafe always gives the home-y feel - the interiors, the brick walls and the Spanish looking outdoor seats 9786

It was just after the holidays that I accompanied a friends and spent some good coffee time with them. 9786

I got their regular cappuccino, it tasted pretty good actually.

Place was not really full but there wasn't enough indoor seating for us, so we opted to seat at the outdoor seating. It's a nice place to do people watching 128517 but it's a bad seat to get the servers attention (ordering, getting the bill, etc) 128533

The place is really nice, however here's some precaution about the food (or at least dessert) when you order.

128204 limone santi cheesecake @130PhP
Here's my favorite but did not really enjoy. This one is more enjoyable when frozen. Its sweetness somehow dominated because it was served a little too room temperature. The two layers were well distinguished which i did not like. I like it frozen, less sweet and tangy after the chill. Next time ask for a frozen one.

128204 iced peppermint mocha @178PhP
Pweh.
That was my first time and most probably the last. Star bucks' version is a looot waaay better. This one got "italian coffee" pero nope. I am not buying it. The coffee mix tastes watery with the touch of mint at the end. How i wish i had their sangria instead!! 128557

As always, the interior is nice, the service was great (dont you notice almost all lalaki server nila?) anyway, the experience was just okay because of the food served to me.

I have been wanting to try Mary Grace's pasta meals since forever and I'd say the anticipation was worth it. I ordered the Tomato and Herb one (oil-based and cooked with fresh tomatoes, mushrooms, olives, basil, and other herbs) while my friend tried their famous Classic Carbonara. Pasta was cooked al dente, the serving size was adequate and filling (can even be good enough for two), and the overall flavors were spot on. Ingredients were fresh and generous, and nothing was too oily or greasy, which is always a deal breaker. I absolutely loved my order, which I doused with chili flakes, and even the carbonara, which I am not always a fan of because of the "umay" factor, but I was told that this had none.

Though the meals are quite pricy, you get your money's worth with quality food, an inviting ambiance, and kind and attentive staff. I definitely recommend this place and I will surely come back.

I'm home.....that's how I feel whenever I'm in Mary Grace. Good food, relaxing ambiance and comfortable place to dine and talk with friends plus to that is a superb service you always get in any of their branches. The creaminess & fullness of ingredients of seafood chowder is a gooooooood way to start our meal. Daughter fell in love with the shrimp salad that she ate all of it , no sharing! She said the burst of flavors and freshness is undescribable. For me as always the breakfast bangus, can't go wrong with this one:-)

Mary Grace will have to be one of my favorite locally-grown Filipino restaurants that really started small and you see how amazingly big they are now in terms of coverage in the whole Philippines. 128077🏻

It's amazing how I have some idea on how they started as shared by Bro. Bo Sanchez, since he's friends with the owner. They started really small and initially just banked on their ensaymadas by attending local and small weekend markets. Little by little, improving and correcting her recipe, Mary Grace took small steps to achieving her highly regarded, good quality, ensaymadas. From there, her business grew until how they are now. She really values customer feedback and I know of a secret between her and Bo on how she improved her pastas and other dishes more. I think it's not good idea divulging the info here. 128514128521

Again, customer feedback is really important for Mary Grace, thus the superb service in all (or most) of her cafes!

During this visit, since I was a bit early on a Monday morning, there were only two to three servers and a manager available to serve the almost half full cafe. This made service a bit slow but i didn't mind since they were still all smiles and polite with my queries. There was even this challenging lady seating next to my table and I commend for they handled her well. 128077🏻

Advanced receipts given to the customers right after taking the order, i think, I only got to experience in Mary Grace. That's really a good move to avoid lacking or incorrect placement of orders. Great job! 128079🏻128079🏻 I think they got it from dimsum places such as those in HK (or Tim Ho Wan) where they print them out and cross out the ones they've served already.

For this visit, I just got the usual pasta-soup-cake tandem.

CLASSIC CARBONARA - 511088
An easy 5 stars. Always a pleaser. Pasta noodles cooked al dente in enough creaminess with their mushroom cream base, topped with bacon bits and cheese, and served with garlic bread.

SEAFOOD CHOWDER - 4.511088
They serve this on a wide and shallow bowl so you better finish this first. The bowl may cause it to cool down faster. I am quite particular with my soups served and enjoyed hot. I can't help but compare this to clam chowder i've tried before. Their version is more watery and with not so heavy cream base. Pretty good all in all with seafood - cream dory (i think), shell, etc.

BLACK VELVET CAKE - 511088
I love this cake and it has always been my favorite! 128516

This branch is better than Trinoma's. The latter is too cramped due to small space.

It's the famous and glorious (if I may say) Mary Grace's Carbonara. 128522

It was served freshly cooked, and boy, it smelled good! 128522

The serving is enough to fill your hungry tummy and pasta craving. 128077 Generous slices of bacon, too! The bread was also divine. 9786

The staff were also accommodating and attentive. 128077 No wonder they're always packed at this branch and the one in Trinoma. I hope it's gonna be consistent!

I'll always go back here. 128522

I love their cheesecake! I'm always on the look out for the most delicious cheesecakes and I think my cheesecake heart now belongs to Mary Grace.

I ordered their mushroom soup and it was really good! I love how it's really creamy. Did I mention that I love their bread? It's amazing! I hope I can buy a loaf 128514 Then I ordered their salmon and cream pasta... this, I'm not really satisfied with because it lacked a kick when it comes to taste. I guess I just picked the wrong pasta dish! Any suggestions with which I should order next?

Overall, my first time experience with Mary Grace is very good. I can see why my Tita loves this place. Great servers, great ambience, awesome food.

I'm not sure how much calories there is in this! BUT I DONT CARE! (Like I care even before, LOL!)128514

I LOVE the cassava chips whats surprising is I love the onion dip as well! Theres just a one thing though128527 the cassava chips are way too thin formy liking128527 I WANT MORE!!!!128534128534128534

The price is 179php a platter usually they say its good for two, but nah!!! It's good just for me!128522

With the price, its kinda pricey for 179php, I think (personally) it's gonna be good for 150php a platter, so I can order 2 platter just for 300php!1280771285269786128534

That's it for now! 127800

Ordered Mary Grace's chicken Ceasar Salad as I was really starving! And the Limoncello cheesecake (I hope I got it right!)

Ceasar salad verdict: 127775127775

The chicken was deep fried with breading! while I do understand that they might want to achieve that "different texture" on a meal thing... Deep fried chicken breast with breading on top of my ceasar salad is just not for me128530 theres something about green salads that exudes freshness but with this one it was an epic fail. Well at least for me! 128078128078

Limoncello Cheesecake (I really hope I got the name right!) ...was perfect! I can taste the zing from the lemon or lime, and I think there's consensed milk somewhere there! LOL!128514128523128077

Staff: 127775127775127775

The staff as usual was courteous unfortunately the one who took my order seems to have lack of knowledge about their pastry, I was asking whichnof their cakes have dark chocolate on it and she doesnt have any idea, oh well, yes! I am too demanding and hard to please when I am actually starving! LOL!128514128514128514128526
