This post is long overdue.
Housed in the romantic Velada Estate in Antipolo City (which is, by the way, a great venue for Christian weddings), the Eggs for Breakfast Cafe serves a decent selection of breakfast and brunch offerings. From brekky staples like pancakes and Eggs Benedict to hearty sandwiches and delectable desserts, the restaurant’s menu caters to a variety of tastes.
It was Valentine’s Day when my best friend and I visited this charming cafe and as expected, we had to wait in line to be seated. We didn’t mind because it gave us ample time to take in the verdant landscape surrounding the cafe.
After waiting several minutes, a pleasant attendant led us to a table in the patio area. It’s a shame that it was full indoors because I didn’t get to see their Instagram-worthy interior, but the weather that day was great so we had a lovely time al fresco.
Burger for breakfast? Why not! A specialty of the house, the Breakfast Burger with Fries (390 PHP) is not your run of the mill burger. For starters, you don’t get a bun – you get toasted bagels. Its layers of goodness include: sunny side up egg, chunky strip of honey-cured bacon, Gouda cheese, juicy and cooked just right home-made beef patty, tomatoes, onions, and spinach. The top bagel had a buttery mustard spread while the bottom bagel, I think, had a thin spread of jam. The result? It was sweet and flavorful.
My friend ordered the White Truffle Carbonara (250 PHP). According to the menu it is: “Fettuccine pasta tossed in white truffle oil infused cream with Parmesan cheese topped with crispy bacon bits and shiitake mushrooms.” My friend said it was a bit bland, but nothing a dash of salt can’t fix.
Would I go back? Absolutely – can’t consume all those calories in just one sitting! I got my eyes/taste buds set on the One Pan Breakfast (470 PHP) and Peach Ravioli (180 PHP).
