This restaurant has been here in Lilac St long before the street became popular to foodies and funny is, this is my 1st time to visit it. Why? Their old space is too small? or lagi kasing puno so I find it masikip, parking is also limited.

This day I didn't intend to eat out, I'm not hungry. We went to Mercury Drug along Lilac St to buy some medicines and since I will be taking antibiotics, I need to eat breakfast. Most of the restaurants along Lilac St were still closed at 8am, gladly Forget Me Not is open for breakfast.

Got waffle with fruits Php95, hot chocolate Php95, tapa meal Php165 and coffee Php50, all drinks are unlimited refills.

The waffle is so chewy na parang sobrang kunat na, which I don't like, the Tapa is also makunat.

The place is great with friendly staffs but I really didn't enjoy the food. I hope they could improve on their breakfast menu offerings for me to come back.

Ordered the lasagna! Small serving but just enough. A bit pricey, though.

For dessert, i had the nutella cheesecake which was VERY SWEET, i couldn't finish.

so we came in around 10PM... they close by 11PM.

Food took awhile to serve. Didn't taste bad - but nothing great sadly 128529

Worst part was by 10:30 PM they already turned off the aircon, mopped floors and turned chairs upside down. Then they served the cake halfway through our meal. 5 mins after they "served" the bill without any explanation why they were giving it. Didn't call for last orders either.

Halfway through our cake comes the manager asking us to pay the bill already so they can close the register. She did it politely but that was just really rude & bad bad customer service. It's not good to 1- turn off the aircon while there are still customers. 2- nobody asked for last orders 3- nobody explained that they needed to get the payment that's why they have to give the bill already. The staff seemed to all be very eager to close - the guard even was already in "pangbahay attire - sando, shorts, slippers with backpack". They tuned off the lights too.

We left the restaurant feeling hot & treated badly. Unless they change the way they treat customers - i don't think we'd come back.

Indeed, you won't be able to forget the dishes that Forget Me Not Cafe has in store.

We ordered two different kinds of pasta - Pesto with Tuna Flakes and Creamy Lasagna, paired with Roast Beef Sandwich and their Fresh Cucumber Shake.

The Pesto was so flavorful. The strength of the basil leaves were tamed by the taste that the tuna flakes had. There was balance in flavor once you've mixed them together, paired with lots of parmesan cheese!

The Lasagna was really creamy. The tomato sauce blended really well with the milk and cheese combined altogether.

Both pastas were served with two slices of garlic and butter filled bread that tasted really nice with both pasta dishes.

I loved the combination of the sandwich and the shake. The roast beef was cooked to its perfection, really juicy and tender with every bite that you take! I loved how it was filled with the sandwich buns, really yum! The French Fries on the side were a big bonus too!

The shake tasted really fresh and refreshing as paired with it! 128075šŸ¼

We decided to have our dessert here to try their cakes. We ordered their lava cake, rainbow cake and dome cake. Lava cake was fine, not too sweet just fine but maybe I was looking for something else. Lava cake was topped with vanilla ice cream. I like the dome cake because it was like marshmallow cake but it was too sweet for me. I didn't like their rainbow cake because of its filing which was I think lemon based cream. I like the ambiance of the place, so cozy. There were a lot of people, thinking it was a weekday. Staffs were kind but not so attentive. It's just a little pricey for the main entreƩs and drinks when I checked the menu. Will be back to try their main entreƩs.

Forget Me Not Cafe transferred a few blocks down to a bigger venue that has a second floor. There was a private event then so i wasn't able to take a peek.

We had high hopes for this place based on a yummy Sansrival cake we bought for a party. We went here during merienda and ordered sandwiches, pasta and a few slices of cakes.

Everything was good but not great. Sadly, nothing stood out. And you need to add a certain amount for the fries and salad. I opted for just a sandwich because i was leaving room for dessert.

The place is decorated nicely. There is a homey feel and a small outdoor smoking area.

I was driving through Lilac the other week and heart stopped when I saw that Forget Me Not was already closed. I breathed a sigh of relief when I saw that they just moved to a new and better location.

Decided to have brunch here today. Indeed the interiors greatly improved. Menu is still the same but was surprised (and disappointed) by the price increase. My kids and I frequent the old Forget Me Not because they love the Cheese Fries and food was a bit on the affordable side considering the serving size. May have to think twice now as there are other affordable places in Lilac that serve great food minus the charge for "ambiance".

Cool concept of having the menu inside this thick chopping board style wood. Haha.

I had hot tea which costs freaking 65 pesos. We also had a slice of the chocolate marshmallow cake. Can't judge the cake if it's good or so so since di naman ako fan ng cakes lol but the place was nice they serve other meals too 128522

Salisbury steak is good but overpriced at 230 pesos. Cakes are your standard, nothing special. Coffee is good. They close at 10 thought but they won't warn you if you're coming in at 9. As such they will be so rude as to turn off the lights and aircon on you.

Finally visited Forget Me Not in its new home! Loved the cozy feel of the place and their revamped menu.

Also, prices have increased. Maybe because of their new location which I think costs more.

Boyfie and I opted for entrees since it's already dinner time. We're both hungry so no pictures this time.

I ordered Salisbury Steak (Php235) and was expecting that it's still the same Salisbury Steak I knew. The meat tasted like longganisa and wasn't juicy enough.

Boyfie got Roast Beef (Php285) which was not too appetizing. Beef was not tender and gravy was too creamy that it tasted like milk.

We chose not to have our desserts since the last time I ate here, I was not happy with their Red Velvet which tastes like medicine for me.

We're definitely not going back to Forget Me Not soon. I was disappointed that they weren't able to retain the old flavors I used to love. (My family has been a fan of Forget Me Not for years. I've been eating here since 2012 and yes, I live 5mins away from Lilac St.)

Giving 3 stars for the ambiance and the fast service.

Masyado akong natuwa dahil pwede na gumawa ng review ang mga Android users. 128513 Kumain kami ng aking dating katrabaho dito noong Araw ng mga Puso 128150. Wala kasi akong ka-date kaya napagpasyahan naming mag-girl bonding na lang. Kahit Heart's Day nung araw na yan, hindi pa puno ang resto nila. Pero may mga ilan na magkakasintahang nilalanggam sa kasweetan sa kanilang mga lamesa. Umorder kami ng Chicken Fingers and Fries, Grilled Porkchop, Crunchy chicken salad at Milkshake. Dahil ginusto ko pa magdessert, umoder din ako ng rainbow cake. Okay yung iba naming order, masyado lang akong natamisan sa cake. May umay factor, eh. Okay yung serbisyo nila, naging kaklase kasi ng kasama ko yung isang crew kaya medyo usap usap sila about sa buhay buhay nila. Umuwi akong busog at inggit na inggit sa mga lovers na nakakasalubong ko sa daan. 128513
