#Philippines, Boracay Island

SUNNY SIDE CAFÉ BORACAY: Best All-Day Breakfast on the Island?!

Sunny Side Café is located along the white beach of Station 3 Boracay. Famous for their all-day breakfast menu, they specialize in comfort food and contemporary breakfast dishes that are never boring!

We love their concept of twisting classic breakfast favorites such as their Ube & Cereal Milk Pancakes, Bacon and Mango Grilled Cheese, and Sunny Side Café Champorado (made with Malagos Chocolate and topped with caramel ice cream, mango, and candied bacon).

They are the only restaurant on the island serving specialty coffee. The dishes are all made from scratch–from their bacon, chorizo, and soups, to their bread and pastries that are freshly-baked in-house, every day!

Here’s what to expect at Sunny Side Café…

FIGARO: Reinventing the Coffee Shop to a Filipino Café Concept?

oap 25

Figaro Coffee is a proudly Filipino coffee chain and is one of the most successful to grow on a global scale. Their vision has always been to support our farmers and promote high-quality, local coffee beans.  

The coffee shop has been around since 1993 and is the brainchild of a group of coffee enthusiasts who dreamt of a café where they could entertain people while enjoying a great cup of coffee and delicious pastries. Its name comes from the male lead in the opera "The Barber of Seville" and encompasses the whole Italian and European concept they were going for. 

Recently, Figaro decided to launch its new menu and Figaro Café store to cater to the evolving market while still staying passionately committed to boosting the local coffee industry. 

Here's what to expect from the new and improved Figaro Coffee…

CAFÉ BY THE RUINS DUA: Best Breakfast in Baguio 2016!

Untitled

CAFÉ BY THE RUINS DUA on Upper Session Road is the newest extension of the original establishment in front of the Baguio City Hall. While it still keeps many of the old favorites from the first branch, Dua’s menu is more dynamic and seasonal.

The restaurant’s reputation for great breakfasts is unintentional, says Feliz Perez, 2nd generation owner of Café by the Ruins Dua. She insists, however, their early operation hours and hearty servings may have contributed to this.

Let's look at how to “Ruin” your breakfast…

Happy 4th Birthday, Aidan!

OAP is as old as Aidan. 🙂 If some people like to create scrapbooks or a family photo album, we created the OAP Blog to document Aidan and Joshua’s childhood adventures. 

Aidan was born on January 19, 2005. Time really goes by so fast, and my thanks go out to the OAP readers who have watched Aidan grow throughout these years.

To make his birthday special, we visited a number of places, including Manila’s latest destination for frozen yogurt: Red Mango.
