Chowdown Cebu: Cafe de France

My friend and I were supposed to fly back to Manila during that afternoon, but after for some reason (maybe bad weather), our flight was delayed. So instead of waiting at the airport, we decided to kill time at Mactan Marina Mall. Yes, this is the same mall where the following restaurants are located:

Da Vinci's Pizza 

Zubuchon (across the street)

We had a quick massage at Nuat Thai first, then decided to have an early dinner before we return to the airport. Since we really need to relax, we chose Cafe de France for its homey ambiance.

Cafe de France is a French-Italian restaurant that originated in Cebu. It has several branches around Metro Cebu, with the Mactan Marina Mall as its main branch. They offer savory dishes, sandwiches, soup, pasta, drinks, and all-day breakfast. They also sell cold cuts and freshly baked bread. Since we just had a heavy lunch at Harbour City, we decided to go with something comforting: breakfast. :)

My friend ordered a Classic Waffle (Php 120). You can also have Classic Pancakes for the same price.

Classic Waffles

It has 2 pcs of waffle, butter, and maple syrup. It was well cooked and really good.

I had a Classic American Breakfast (Php 160). It also includes a cup of brewed coffee or tea.

The Classic American has bacon (or ham), 2 eggs, and toast. But instead of toast, I requested to have garlic rice, and they did (yey). It's just what I needed since we were having a bad time. The relaxing ambiance helps a lot too.

Other breakfast meals include Filipino breakfasts, Eggs & Omelet.

I'd definitely go back to try the savory dishes next time I visit Cebu.

Here's the menu:

  5. Nice ambiance, I love the wine racks.

    I also love waffles (though I prefer pancakes). I noticed though that the classic american breakfast is of small serving. Hindi rin maganda pagkaluto sa egg :| But oh well, if tastes good, ok na din siguro.

    1. I actually requested the eggs to be well done. :)

  6. Brown Cup Cafe is one of the places you can get really affordable and decent all day-breakfasts too! :)
