There was no slacking off at Cafe Fleur—this spot is just simply majestic. From the design up to their menu is carefully crafted. It can be found at 5893 Enriquez Street, Poblacion, Makati, Philippines.  It also has a cozy, homey vibe that makes you feel like you're eating at your own house. Now, let’s move on to their menu. There are many choices, but I've settled on penne with tuyo capers and roasted cherry tomatoes because they pique my interest in local cuisine and customs. Duck leg confit with lemongrass, pumpkin, and spinach is another menu highlight, along with the orange-rosemary Beurre Blanc steak, the wagyu striploin from the United States (250 g) prepared bistek style or chimichurri. So, do yourself a favor and stop by if you don't want to miss out on these treats!

Together, Portia Baluyut Magsino's love of cooking and her mother Stephanie Dee Baluyut love of art, collecting various trinkets and whatnots inspired the creation of Rustic Mornings, a restaurant with a one-of-a-kind rustic charm. That's why it shouldn't come as a surprise that these restaurants serve the best food in Manila—specifically at 11 Isabelo Mendoza St., San Roque, Marikina. You can get anything from American waffles and pancakes to classic Filipino breakfast fare like itlog and tapa at this garden café in Marikina. They certainly got everything covered! The french toast tower with grilled peaches, the half plain half churro waffle for the best 2-in-1 combo, and the chocolate cake with a warm, molten center, topped with vanilla ice cream and strawberry syrup are all A-list items as well.

The Guilt Cafe has seen a meteoric rise in popularity, particularly among members of Generation Z, due to its delicious food and an atmosphere that is instagram worthy! They can be found at 35 Scout Castor corner Scout Reyes, Quezon City, 1103 Quezon City, Philippines. Despite the interior's tendency toward minimalism, it nevertheless manages to feel warm and inviting thanks to the wicker and Solihya furniture; this is my definition of the perfect food stop coming into reality! Also, they offer a large assortment of delicious foods. They serve a hearty brunch menu that is suitable for lunch, after lunch, or any time of day—they’ve got everything well taken care of. And just to give you an idea of what else is on the menu, they have pizza, chicken, and blueberry cheesecake that sound absolutely divine.
