So I finally got to try Mary Grace's Dory & Saffron Cream Pasta. 127837 Shared this with my mom plus an additional order of the Fried Kesong Puti with Calamansi Vinaigrette Salad.

I don't usually order cream-based pasta dishes because they're too rich, creamy, and heavy. So I was surprised that the dish I ordered was a cream-based pasta. 128517 But, oh well. Good thing, the pasta was good. Mommy liked it, too. Though, I still like the sardines pasta but this is a good "alternative" when I want something new or different. I like that it is not that heavy/creamy plus the added citrus c/o the lemon made this dish so much better and refreshing. Hindi nakakaumay! But would be better if there were more dory added.

And the salad, ohmy! I am a fan of Mary Grace's Ceasar Salad, the fried chicken was good! But again, this can also be a good salas alternative. I loved the fried kesong puti balls! There were about 4 balls and I reserved 2 pcs so I can just eat them after hihi. 128518 And the dressing, so good and it paired well with the grilled tomato slices + the richness of the kesong puti balls. So light and refreshing! 128077🏼

Thanks, Mico C for the reco! 128513

For me, very little comes close to the grilled ensaymada and hot chocolate combo at Mary Grace 10084️ decided to have dessert here after dinner at Choobi Choobi. Service was great as usual and my ensaymada was grilled just right. I got the Mary Grace hot chocolate which was perfect for dipping and my friend got the white chocolate. A tad too sweet for me but she liked it nonetheless 128077🏼

We've been coming here for lunch for several times now because of the food and the ambience. The homey feel of Cafe Mary Grace makes me want to visit it from time to time. For those with kids, the restaurant has a playtime area while waiting for the food. They also have books and magazines which can ease your waiting time for your food to arrive.

I usually order oil based or tomato based pasta dishes and for a changed I tried a cream based pasta today. I ordered their Salmon and Cream Pasta which I liked because the pasta is al dente and the sauce is not overpowering although a bit watery. There is also a good amount of salmon mixed in the pasta sauce.

Their service however was a bit slow this afternoon especially when we were trying to pay our bill maybe because of the influx of people since it was the peak of lunch time.

Nevertheless, I still like this place and would keep on coming back for more pasta and pastries

Last Sunday after church, Mommy and I decided to have lunch here at Mary Grace. We used to eat here every Sunday and it feels good to be back after xx number of months. 128513

The place is still the same, same homey chill relaxing feels. But two things changed -- (1) menu - they added new items and increased their prices and (2) the service, still good but not as good as before. 128533

FOOD
Usually, we would just order salad and pasta, but mommy insisted we order pizza too, so we got one. For the pizza, you have to wait 15-20minutes.

Parma Ham & Arugula Pizza
- we usually get the Margherita but I decided to try this one for a change. We both liked this because the flavor was balanced. The parma ham was salty but since they didn't added that much, just enough to let you taste a small portion in every bite, it was yummy and all the flavors worked well together. We really enjoyed eating this. But kinda pricey for 500++.

Spanish Sardines Pasta
- our forever favorite pasta. Loved how the taste doesn't change!! Still as yummy and as goooooooood! Al dente pasta and overflowing with spanish sardines goodness! And serving size is good for sharing! 128077🏼

Local Greens Salad
- mixed greens with grilled tomatoes, fresh/raw onion rings and fried garlic. Instead of the chili daing dressing, I asked for the calamansi vinaigrette instead. 128513

SERVICE
- as mentioned, it was still good but not as good as before. New faces and felt like they're not as happy with what they're doing. But I manager was there and he helped in serving the customers, cleared and cleaned the tables, and everything else. Pang employee of the month haha 128514128518

Ordered their apple pie with a cup of muscovado cappuccino after some qt with mommy. The apples lack spices and sweetness while the crumble was a bit burnt. Not their best among the many options but still love Mary Grace and the homey vibe of this branch.

After n years, mommy and I are finally back here again! I missed Mary Grace -- the place, the decor and it's homey and comfortable feels! This will forever be a favorite restaurant!! 9786️ It's nice and nakakakilig that despite not being able to visit for a long time, they still remember us and we were happily greeted and welcomed when we entered. We were seated at our usual spot and was served by their overly friendly and nice staffs. 128522128077🏼

We've been here countless of times already but I still haven't tried most of the items in the menu because we usual get the same almost every time. I've been wanting to try the french toast but don't know if it's worth it . 128563128517

Ending is, we still ordered our favorites: Mary Grace Ceasar Salad for me, Spanish Sardines Pasta for mommy, and a slice of Mango Bene for dessert. 10084

Loved and enjoyed my salad. Generous serving of crunchy refreshing greens, parmesan cheese, bacon bits, and tasty breaded chicken fillet! If all salads are like this, everyone would probably be eating salad everyday (and loving it! 128525).

I also ate some pasta as the serving size is really big. Al dente noodles with bits of spicy Spanish sardines, olives/capers, mushrooms, and fresh tomatoes. Add more parmesan cheese and chili flakes and you're one happy human being! We've tried a lot of versions of this pasta dish, we even make this at home with the same ingredients, but nothing beats Mary Grace's pasta. Soo good!!! 128076🏼

And for dessert.. what happens when you add Mangoes and Cream together? Amazing and magical things happen!!! 1285639786️ They have a lot of cakes available but we'll end up getting the Mango Bene! Always! Thinking of it now makes me feel all kilig and happy!! Ahh, imagine sweet mangoes with a not so sweet and uber light cream!!! 128563 Can I please have one now pretty please? 128155

A bit pricey but when you consider the serving size, the taste and quality of the food, the ambiance and the service, it's really worth it. Plus they have free fast wifi connection! 128521128077🏼

You can never go wrong with Mary Grace because not only do you get to enjoy yummy comfort food that your tummy will thank and love you for but you also get treated very well here. Everything, every corner feels like home. Comfort restaurant perfect for everyone!! 128076🏼

Afternoon coffee session with grilled ensaymada and cheesecake. So good and worth it!

The coffee was not that strong. Bitterness was just right and it matched well with the grilled ensaymada and cheesecake.

We all know that the grilled ensaymada is their best seller so I'll skip that. 128516

The cheesecake was good on its own. It was, well, cheezy but also sweet which was just right for me. I also liked the jam (I think it's blueberry) they put around the plate. It added a distinct flavor that combined well with the cheesecake.

Went to SM to get my phone fixed from ADI and the technician was absent because my phone wasn't partly working as we had it taken in the day before.
Feeling in distraught we wanted to eat even if we had eaten a light dinner at Chef Restys we were still hungry. I suggested a snack place to eat that's decent but Sandra was feeling Salad so we were walking and saw Mary Grace.
I recall this place being like Contis but better with class and that warm feeling of good hearty food.
The place looks decent as we sat out since inside was full, she had salad and I ordered a sandwich.
Our appetizer was delicious as I recall the Crispy Cassava Chips with onion dip was always delicious, Sandra's Caesar Salad was great too but portion was kind of small.. My sandwich was the "Fili Beef with Tomatoes" which was real good but the bread was too hard and it felt like my teeth could break biting into it.. Also I had to put some dip sauce to make it taste better.
Overall this place is always good to go eat nice hearty food with class. It's quite pricey but if you have the money to spend, you're going to have a good time. I actually didn't get quite full but I enjoyed my meal. Wouldn't mind coming back here at all! By the way I love those lamp decour they always have at the center ceiling.

I've missed Mary Grace! Was also pleasantly surprised to see that they offer my 2 favorite things as a combo! They Mary Grace hot chocolate and a plain/grilled cheese ensaymada for php216. Lahvett! Hubby got a slice of mango bene and a grilled cheese roll.
Service was above and beyond as always.. Why can't all restos be like this?? All the servers were smiling and pleasant, they regularly refilled our water glasses, gave us our 'temporary' receipt so that we don't have to wait when we bill out later on and when we left the resto, it's like we were leaving a family reunion. Whuutttt??!
Food was comfortingly good was always. They even showed us the mango bene and asked if it's ok cos it looked malungkot (it was the end part). I said it doesn't look sad to me! My tummy will be happy!
Awesome, awesome service hands down!

Tried Mary Grace's new Vanilla bean chiffon cake and loved the simplicity of it. It has layers of vanilla chiffon with light caramel cream in between. It wasn't as sweet nor as heavy too which makes it easy to consume the entire slice. I can't say it tops my love for their Mango bene and Chocolate Truffle cake but nonetheless, a very strong competitor!

Sunday Lunch Date with Mommy. Today, we ate at her favorite restaurant because it's no chinese food today 128514 But to be different, we decided to try something new instead of our usual orders.

Mommy had Fried Bangus and a glass of Sangria. This was just okay. But I was super inggit with the sunny side up eggs because they were perfectly cooked!!! The sangria according to mom, was just okay. She still like the peach iced tea.

I had an order of the Grilled Chicken and Oranges with Black Olive dressing salad. This was good. I just don't really get the point of adding olives. Ano ba talaga ang main purpose nila? 128563 I didn't liked the olive dressing so I asked for a different dressing, instead. 128513 Serving size was very generous!! Pwede na for the price.

For dessert, we had a slice of Mango Bene and tsoknut chocolate. Instead of the Mary Grace Hot Chocolate, which btw is their "bestseller", I had this one and I liked it better. Hot chocolate infused with tsoknut? Sarap! 128521 And of course, the Mango Bene!! It's impossible for someone not to like this one!! Layers of meringue, custard cream, sponge cake, and slices of sweet sweet mangoes!!! Heaven in every bite!! 128525

If there's something Mary Grace can be proud of aside from their good food and desserts, that would be their service. You really feel at home when dining here. Homey place and service!! A place perfect for family lunch or dinner! Or anytime of the day! 128513

Sunday lunch is a mandatory thing for mommy and me. After church, we would normally eat somewhere. It doesn't have to be anything fancy or special just as long as we're together! Naks! 128521Since sweldo just happened, I was open to eat anywhere.128541128514 Mom, chose Mary Grace because she loves their Spanish Sardines pasta. So we ordered one pasta and a glass of peach iced tea for her and a simple salad for me. I've been eating a lot lately so I ordered something light and healthy. 128521

As always, service was excellent. Homey Comfy place + Warm service + Good good food = Mary Grace 10084

In trying to be healthy, I ordered the grilled veggie sandwich (215 pesos) with an additional order of side salad (65 pesos). I am trying really really hard in convincing myself that I made the right choice. It's bad. Sad. Frustrating. I like (LOVE!) veggies but this is just.. 128148 No one should ever feel sad when eating. 128557 I am crying invisible tears right now 128529

Annnnnnnd... Service wasn't that good anymore. 128530

We ate here a day after New Year and the place was packed! Our orders were: "Grilled" (but just toasted, really) Ensaymada, Chorizo pasta (so good!) and Truffle pizza (my fave).

No complaints about the food as they tasted excellent but i'm taking a star off because the service was slower than usual.

I've always loved Mary Grace' ensaymadas and hot chocolate but I've never tried their 'real' food. So one day at Southmall, we decided to give it a go.
My initial choice was the salmon pasta but it wasn't available so I got the 'spicy lemon scampi' instead. According to the description, it's an oil based pasta with fresh lemons and a hint of chili for a 'spicy kick'. Intriguing.
But dissapointing! Walang lasa as in.. Had to put a ton of parmesan to give it a semblance of taste. When I asked for chili flakes, 'pinapatuyo pa daw'. Kaya ba walang spice tong pasta? Ugh waste of php380.
Ordered hot chocolate nalang and ensaymadas to compensate lol.
3 stars for good service and ambience pero food is mediocre or less for me.

Craving for some carbonara and headed over here. I love its homey ambiance. Relaxing. Staffs were really friendly and very accomodating. Creamy and full of flavor pasta, serving was filling too. I had grilled ensaymada and hot chocolate for dessert and it was really good! Best pair! It was a great food and service.
