Fruity French Toast for Breakfast or Brunch
Food is a bit pricy comparing to the others in the same area. However, the portion was big; the quality was great and totally perfect as a large breakfast or brunch. This restaurant is located in the business district and wasn't really busy before lunch time. It made us feel completely comfy and homey. We believe that we'd come back for more for sure.

Fast Food French Cuisine in a Cafe
We found the food they offered here was quite disappointing. There were not many food and drink options. It feels like more of a fast food chained restaurant with limited food options in their set menu. The place was lovely for picture and stunning with loads of beautiful decors and furnitures. But we certainly didn't think we got what we paid for.

Choose Your Favourite Fresh Seafood at the Till
This restaurant was definitely under rated by most. You get to choose your favourite seafood at the till, and you know what, most of them are still alive and fresh in the serving plate. You also get to choose the style of cooking, from baking and stir-frying to steaming and deep-frying. How can you not love it? It'd be better if it's less expensive though.

Various Options of Bubble Milk Tea for Afternoon Tea
This place will definitely save your life after a long shopping day in the mall. You can order your bubble milk tea either takeaway or dine-in with options of the base and the topping. The bubble tea was not-so-great-yet-not-so-bad. We enjoyed the time here since this cafe is totally made for camera. It is absolutely fantastic to have fun in their indoor ball pool.
Double Ma tea | Seaside Ave, Cebu City, Cebu, Philippines ★★★☆☆
Pricy Filipino-styled Japanese Sushi
Try this restaurant only when you are running out of ideas of what to eat. This Japanese restaurant is pricy; and it's not that authentic in their Japanese speciality. The sushi we ordered was okay and somehow in Filipino style. It's still a great place for a quick lunch if you are in a hurry.
Nonki Japanese Restaurant | Sergio Osmeña Jr Boulevard Mabolo, SM City Cebu, Cebu City, 6000, Philippines ★★★☆☆
Filipino Home-cooked Seafood Platter
Their seafood platter was overwhelmingly high rated on the Internet but it turned out to be something that we disliked most. The restaurant's setting is cute in a Filipino home style. However, the food quality was quite bad. Most seafood in the platter was overcooked or over-baked. The fish became chewy and very unappealing. We feel sorry to be their first customer in the day.
