We were searching for a good breakfast place the morning after what has been a very tiring trip to Bora, so major props to Looloo for this awesome recommendation! Of all our orders I would recommend you get the Angus Beef Tapa. It's Php 390 but I promise you won't regret it (unless you have peculiar taste). It was sooooo good and bursting with meaty flavors. I love their huge serving of giant pancakes too. It was too thick for our liking and the muscovado syrup didn't go so well that I wish they used maple syrup instead. But everything else was good. Try sesame milk for your drink. It's odd in a good way. 128077🏼

Nice to be back in Boracay. Vacation with my best buddies since I wasn't able to go here with them 2 years.ago.

Our flight from Manila was at 6am and we arrived in the island by 8am. The earliset time to check in to our hotel was at 10 am so we decided to have our breakfast first since we haven't had any before our flight.

I suggested to have our breakfast here and everyone agreed to it. Our hotel was located beside Hennan Resort so we walked a bit going here.

The cafe is located at Station 3 beside Astoria. It's very easy to locate with it's catchy yellow exteriors. The place was small but I like the interiors. It's bright and modern. It's a hidden gem here in Station 3. We opted to sit inside due to the windy weather that day even the sun was up. Staff were accomodating and they know the dishes well when asked about it.

A friend recommended this cafe the last time we went here last July 2016. We planned going here but we weren't able to due to tight schedule. Thanks to loolooo, by reading the reviews, I was encouraged to try it no matter what.

We ordered the following:

Flat white

I like it. Not too strong nor too bitter without sugar. My friend added sugar on it after having it by half and it tasted different. I really don't put sugar on my coffee unless it's brewed. Anyway it's still good but I prefer no sugar on it. Haha

Angus Tapa

It's good. Not your usual tapa. It's not dry, the meat was tender and was served with two sunnyside up eggs and fried rice. You can request to have your egg to be scrambled as well.

Bacon and Eggs

It was ok. My friends ordered it. I like the usual bacon better or the Bacon Slab in Poco deli or the bacon in Cafe by the Ruins. 128523 The cut was a bit thick.

Apple Pie Pancake

We had it half but the serving was still big. The pancake was thick but It was good. It's fluffy and moist. It have a apple pie filling on top and crumbles. We were able to finished it despite the big servings of the food.

Overall our dining experience was great. Definitely would go back here on my next vacation in the island and would highly recommend this to my friends and to you guys.

*Our flight was delayed and I'm here now trying to write reviews on the hotels and restaurants I've been to during my 5 days stay here.

Bacon and Mango Grilled Cheese + All the Way

The sandwich is to die for! 128522 It has bacon, their own mango jam and mozzarella cheese in it. It uses soft brioche which is prepared from their bakery. It comes with sweet potato hay or your choice of side salad and tomato soup. I highly recommend this sandwich. All flavors are complimentary and sumptuous!

I also tried their signature drink: All The Way. It had pineapple, lychee, calamansi and smashed mint in it. It really is a refreshing drink!

There aren't that much people dining in this place since it's located in station 3 and it kinda closes early. If you are a breakfast person i suggest you get your breakfast in this place. I heard they have yummy pancakes as well which is good for 2. If you stay all the way in station 1, this is worth walking the beach front for. This is located beside Sands. Try this place out and you'd want to keep coming back. 128522

Sunny Side Café is located in Boracay’s Station 3 is a bright little breakfast haven at the Ground Floor of Sands Hotel. It serves all-day breakfast dishes to those who are looking for a hearty and satisfying meal. The staff warned us that their dishes are quiet big in size so to avoid food waste, consider food sharing or order in half portions. I tried their Angus Beef Tapa, Malagos Chocolate Pancake, Peanut Butter and Jelly Pancake and their limited edition TWG Earl Grey Cream Pancake.

This time for breakfast we travel all the way to Station 3 to try this Sunny Side Cafe that my other friends have been raving about. We took a trike since its a long walk. The place when we arrive was very sunny color haha. The bright yellow and white color was so inviting. This little coffee shop is just beside Sands Hotel.
While waiting for a table inside we were seeing some foreigner leaving with still a big chunk of pancake on their plate. So we were worried that it might not taste good. But we were able to overheard the waiter asking the foreigner if hows the food. The guest replied that it was good it was just too big.

So we proceeded ordering 3 different kind of Pancakes on a half size since the full size is said to be so big. My order was the Malagos Dark Chocolate Pancake. It was delicious and the bitterness was soo good! The other pancake was the TWG Earl Grey Pancake. This one has the relaxing flavor and the fruits was a good topping for the pancake. The last one was peanut butter and jelly. This was good but it was the most umay! All pancakes were delicious but even with just half size it was still big. We were unable to finish the one inch thick around 8inch round pancake. Umay was what we felt after. Hope they could have a much smaller size to lessen the food waste.

Overall great breakfast place in boracay. Price of pancakes was very cheap for its size. But again hoping for a smaller size. :)

Sunny side cafe is like a breath of fresh air amongst the typical buffet, seafood restaurants or reggae-inspired dining establishments within the island. They have a wide selection of food mostly I guess are good as breakfast. Their pancakes are a must try! But take note- an order is equivalent to two large and thick pancakes! So if you're not that hungry, opt to have a half order. It's location is also a plus- beachfront! Either you dine inside and chill with the cool ambience or enjoy your food outside and relax with a view of the sea. The service is fast and always with a smile (at least during our visit hehe). We'd love to be back..

Chocolate pancake was good but could use a little more sweetness

Red velvet pancake was also good.

Hubby was impressed with the chori burger. It was spicy.

Mac and cheese was super delicious!

** pancakes are huge! One order has 2 big pancakes which are equivalent to 6 regular sized pancakes (theirs are kinda dense) so it was good that the waitress suggested we get half an order of each only. We weren't able to finish.

We would definitely go back. Great restaurant for all day breakfast. Excellent service too.

Chorizo Mac & Cheese x Red Velvet Pancakes

Pancakes were as big (or even bigger) than my face. Lol. I'm not really a fan of red velvets but they were okay for me.
The mac&cheese tasted good too.

They have a lot to offer. And I think I'll go back to try their toast and grilled cheese 128539

You should go here when you're not //that// hungry as serving time takes 20-30 minutes.

Loving the ambiance here at Sunny Side Café. Their food was a bit pricey but it is well enticing. The food was good and it matches the beachfront view.

Super loved this cup of affogato! It was vanilla ice cream but i tasted a bit of caramel sauce too, the coffee was strong but didn't need a lot of syrup. I finished it before out food came and wanted more! Yeah serving was small and costs P170 but it's Boracay haha

I super love this Salmon Omelette that I ordered!

The milkyness of the omelette paired with the capers and huge slices of salmon were addicting! The baguette slices with powdered sugar were perfect too!

Will definitely try other items once I get back!

I liked the ambiance and location of the place.
Very chic and fresh. Even the presentation of their food was great.
Though I found their food a bit bland.
Others were too sweet for my taste.
But nonetheless still good.
