I had breakfast at Cafe de Lipa in Market Market.
I got a Hot Mocha Latte and Adobo Patte Pandesal. Total cost 145.00
It was a quaint and quiet place. There were always people inside it in the morning. Not full. Usually a small group with one or two tables. I decided to try it. Why not? I'm in Market Market everyday anyways.
The Mocha Latte was alright. Sorry, Cafe de Lipa, it was nothing special. It's ok but not really great. The Adobo Patte Pandesal was good. One thumb up since 45 pesos for one small pandesal felt a little steep. It really was patte and it is a must-try.
The ambiance is good. It was serene and conveniently located. Even if the mall was still closed, you can dine in at 7am.
I like the concept of the cafe. A blend of Filipino and western cafe style. Their specialty is Cape Barako from Batangas, hence the name Cafe de Lipa. Food are mixtures of the expected chocolate cakes, a few quiches and of course, a menu of Pinoy snacks. The snacks are mostly pre-prepared pandesal items.
Overall, it's a good place to try. It a fine place to relax.
Prices are same in Figaro and Bo's.
