Breakfast is always a hearty one here in K&L. Log Cabin Breakfast is one of my favorite dishes to share with my mom! We just had this to start our food-filled day yesterday.

It's a mix of savory and sweet flavors. Savory from the corned beef hash and nicely cooked scrambled eggs. And sweet from the toast that you can smother with butter and strawberry jam. Not so sure what kind of bread they have, but it's soooo good! It also comes with some lengua de gato on the side most of the time. 128076

From 7am-11am each order also comes with a free cup of brewed coffee. It was bad ass (in a good way hahaha) I would've gotten another one, so my mom and I could have one each, but we ended up content with just one to share.

Now that's a busog lusog breakkie!

I used my buy 1
Take one pasta
And ordered the buffalo wings with blue cheese dressing. I had the tomato, capers and olives pasta ( i opted to omit the feta) and the
Bagnet pasta... They were all quite good. I gave them a 5 for the overall experience. It"s my second time here and so far service had been very good (despite no service charge), food was good, and prices
For food are down to earth.

The unhealthy but happy choice! K&L's Ilocos Bagnet is one of the best out there! It's a combination of crisp and juicy, which I think is how bagnet should be. Medyo melt in your mouth pa yung taba! Plus the tomato salsa is a refreshing and flavorful side. 128076

Hayy I have so many backlogs for this place and their food, I would probably reach 30 reviews! Hahaha I can't believe K&L has been in business for more than a year now. The place still looks new and I'm always still excited whenever I choose to dine here! Sana forever na ito! 1008410084️ hihihi

Just when I thought there is an overload of all day breakfast restos, here is k&l giving me a hint that I should come back again and again. With exemplar service and good comfort food why not. Coffee was free they said I dunno if it was for first timers only (they know who their regular customers are 128517). I liked that their Vigan /Baguio Longanisas taste authentic. I should come back for the bagnet looks hefty in serving size and crunchy. Ambiance is laid back and relaxed with little trinkets to remind you of Baguio.

Their maple iced latte was great! Better if it were cooler, and with more ice. 128513

Tasted their tapa and longanisa from my mom and Tita's order; and it was good too. :-)

I'd just finished another work day at Cubao when I decided to embark on another foodventure on my own. This was how I stumbled upon this place along Katipunan.

I entered and was greeted by cheerful staff. The establishment has two floors and is made up of both modern and rustic feels. When I swung by last week, there were Halloween decorations including cobwebs, etc. hanging on the walls and such haha.

Apparently the K and L stand for Karen and Loren who are sisters and hail from Baguio. This is why the menu and the stuff they sell within the restaurant (including strawberry wine, jams, etc.) is very Baguio.

They serve rice meals, pastas, pizzas, drinks as well as cupcakes from Blushing Cupcakes (also theirs). I decided on Daddy's Bourbon American Ribs at 295 pesos and their strawberry calamansi drink (95 pesos). I also got a red velvet cupcake for dessert. The ribs was a big slab of meat smothered in barbecue sauce, served with red mountain rice and corn and carrots. Super tender and melted perfectly in my mouth. I also loved the flavor! Unfortunately, it was also oily and fatty, I began getting torn between finishing it because it tasted so good or stopping since the oil was getting too much to bear. I'm really glad I had the strawberry calamansi drink, though. The flavors blended nicely and produced a zesty-sweet refreshing drink. Finally, the cupcake was great! Moist and not overly sweet. A perfect ending to any meal.

This place was great and I'd love to come back soon to try their other food offerings. 128515

I left the reception at Bettys' past 1pm to meet with my best buds at SPi Mandaluyong. I felt guilty for making them wait for hours so I decided to pay for their lunch. Tuwa ng mga bruha!128513

I wanted them to try Eat Fresh Famous Hong Kong Street Food kaso sarado. Hashtag Sunday and Intsik. We drove to Katipunan from San Juan to try Old Oven Art Café. Sarado din! Hashtag Natakot kay Lando naman.

|ooloo to the rescue! K&L Cafe by blushing cupcakes is a few walks away from Old Oven. Reviews are good so I told them to fill their tummies here.

I followed Theresa L'a review and ordered Chicken Cordon Bleu and Daddy's bourbon american ribs. I was still full from all the food that I ate from Betty's so I only tried a small piece from their dishes.

Both were served with mountain rice. The chicken cordon bleu was yummy! The creamy sauce hits the spot and I liked that it's topped with crunchy bacon.

Daddy's bourbon american ribs is a clear favorite.The first thing I loved about the dish? walang lasang bumbay! Hooray!128582🏻 The meat was amazingly tender, well seasoned and the sauce was sweet and finely tuned. Not to mention the size! It was so worth it for almost 300 pesos.

I'm rating five stars for saving my friends from hunger and for the delish and affordable food. K&L Café definitely deserves a second visit!

Because my husband saw K&L featured on TV recently, he dragged me all the way from Parañaque to White Plains to visit and after being stuck in horrendous traffic for 2 hours, I was really looking forward to sampling their grub.

We had their tapa, chicken and mushroom, salad with strawberry wine vinaigrette and a slice of red velvet cake for dessert. Was it worth the butt-numbing journey? Sadly, no. While the food was reasonably-priced, beautifully presented and the portions generous, they were all ordinary fare. Taste-wise, I couldn't really find anything that stood out or made the dishes uniquely delicious - not even the peanut brittle in the salad.

But, I must say, they are right on the mark when it came to providing a "place where you can step back for a while". The wooden interiors and quirky decor gave the restaurant a very relaxed and homey vibe. I haven't been to Baguio in over 20 years but this place really did make me feel like I was back in the city of pines.

Service was chaotic though. The wait staff, while courteous and welcoming, seemed confused with what they were doing. More than once did the same server ask us if our orders were complete. After answering her twice on what was missing, my husband whipped out the receipt in case we get asked again what else was left to be served. To think there were less than 10 people in the restaurant at the time.

We would like to go back to try the red velvet pancakes and some of the other items on the menu - but only if we're in the area.

I've visited this place so many times, that's how much i love their food :) on my most recent trip, i ordered the longganisa up north for bfast :) the longganisas were cooked to perfection and the suka matched perfectly with the garlicky longganisa! :) the mountain red rice a winner for me too!

Also ordered their iced vanilla milk, which is a personal favorite. For dessert, i had the red velvet cupcake. The quality of the cupcake was excellent given the affordable price :) also a must try is the pastillas cupcake which i bravely say is better than Slice's. Sagada coffe was a thumbs up too.
before leaving, i got cinnamon roll (P30) and ensaymadas (P50 for 2) to go. They didn't last long at home, masarap! Connamon roll was not sweet and ensaymda was buttery and cheesy.

The owners are very warm and kind. Knowing that we were regulars, they gave us free cupcakes :)

Tip: they give free sagada coffee when you dine in from 7-10am :)

Can't wait to go back here soon! :)

It's official. I'm an addict for K&L 100841008410084

I've been working out everyday since last week and I decided that today should be my rest day (unless I change my mind later wahaha) and "reward day" rather than cheat day.

I started with bacon for breakfast and now I'm having a slice of mocha cake in the office. K&L does it again. Always wins my heart every single time. Their cupcakes and cakes aren't so sweet but flavorful && full! They're not airy but not too heavy either. For a cake you're sure is freshly baked and iced the price is just right, even cheaper compared to cafes like Starbucks and Coffeebean that get their cakes from external suppliers. 128077

Maybe I'll be back tomorrow for Treat yourself Thursday! 10084

Hihi it pays to be a loyal customer! Lol! I won gcs for being fan of the week! Hehe Yayyy! Free brunch!

I was just here last Thursday for treat yourself Thursday! 20% for your order for each employee with an employee ID. That was the second unexpected week I availed the discount and I have a feeling it'll become a regular Thursday thing now.

I had their Bagnet with Tomato Salsa and Mountain Rice! Gahh! I usually have my bagnet with sarsa like Mang Tomas but this was good without it. (I'm not a fan of vinegar, nope!) but yeah the bagnet was good, crisp and tender at the same time. The Tomato Salsa was good too, I loved how it was generously seasoned with salt and pepper! I thought at first the serving was small but I even ended up sharing it pa. Hehe

So far, I'm loving the mix of dishes. I try to order something new everytime.

Summer is here and the intense heat is driving me crazy. I want to walk around especially during food trips but the sun wants to fry an egg on my head. So when J and I went on a White Plains food trip, we try to escape the heat by having saba con yelo (hielo) at Pan de Amerikana (and brewed coffee and pandesal for a sasaw sa kape afternoon treat). And after a bit of cooling down, we were game to visit our last stop… K&L Café.

Hello again, K&L Café.

It has been quite a while since I last visited the adorable K&L Café.

They were busy setting up for a mini gathering when we arrived so we were requested to dine at the second floor.

The second floor is pretty cute too. The wall ornaments and the frosted window with the logo of the shop made the place homey.

After checking the menu, we went with the following: Longganisa Locale (PHP219), Mozz-Ham-rella Sticks (PHP195), and Ultimate Red Velvet Pancakes (PHP295). We also got Strawberry Calamansi (PHP95) and one of their new drinks that I forgot to take note of.

First served were our drinks. I loved J’s drink as it was sweet yet citrusy. Mine, on the other hand, was a bit too sweet and wasn’t much of a thirst quencher.

The mozzarella (with ham) sticks were served next. Served warm, the stretchy mozzarella with bits of ham was a great appetizer. I’m sure cheese-loving kids would love this dish.

I also loved the pasta. The bits of longganisa had a bit of crunch and were flavorful but not overpowering. It was quite oily though but it was too yummy to resist!

J liked the Red Velvet Pancakes though he could be a bit biased as he loves red velvet. As always, this plate of pancakes fills the tummy fast. We hardly get to eat half of it. >.<

It has been another delightful meal, K&L Café. I’ll see you again soon!

Had brunch here at K&L Cafe and it was great. The cafe itself was quaint and had a comfy feel. We ordered all their recommended dishes like Bourbon Ribs, Salad, Longanissa Up North, Red Velvet Pancakes and Strawberry calamansi juice. Service was quite slowa and our pancakes took so long to come. But thewait was worth it because it wasvery nice.

One chillax Sunday afternoon last March, hubby and i decided to bring the kids with us at K&L Cafe by Blushing cupcakes at Whiteplains. We love this place.Good food, relaxing ambiance.

It looks like it will give you a quick trip to Baguio. Bringing Baguio closer to you. Hubby had the special chicken pesto pasta for 189 pesos then mine was longanisa locale pasta for 219 pesos. You'll like this pasta very unique served with bread on the side. French toast for my daughter Adelheid L then Latrell Joshua L my son has the generous serving of their ultimate red velvet pancake. You'll surely fall in love with the taste and presentation.

Our meal wont be complete without their yummy cupcakes. Good thing they have a lot of promos.Example if you post their food on social networking sites and tag them you'll get free cupcakes
