Brekkie Times Three

   Being a morning person. breakfast is always the highlight of my day. So one of the things I enjoy most is discovering new breakfast places. In the past months, I have found three gems that I would love to go back to again and again. Basically I have not been able to have the energy anymore for a night out so these places are my way of being part of the resto scene. 

     I'd like to share them with you. Here they are:

The Breakfast Table

     You might miss this cozy place on Miginhawa cor Makadios in Teacher's Village Quezon City. Just look for the blue door and it is near a katsu place. The off-shoot of the breakfast foods store, The Breakfast Store, the Breakfast Table offers all things breakfast with a subtle twist.

     The blue and white, shabby chic interiors is a welcome touch though it reminds me of another breakfast place Rustic Mornings. The Breakfast Table interiors are made of recycled and repurposed items which is truly admirable AND economical.

Recycled jeans as placemats
Old tins as lighting fixtures and salvaged mix- matched chairs
Old wood scraps for this toilet paper holder. 

     We made the mistake of ordering this dish, wrapped omelet style which was interesting but left us bereft as far as viand was concerned. Basically it seemed like just a rice dish. Order this and order extra viand.

     I would love to visit The Breakfast Table again. I heard they have a weekend buffet. Hmmm...

189 Maginhawa St. cor. Makadios St., Sikatu

Next stop

The CBTL Bistro

     H and I have been wanting to try this place. I was first attracted to their wood and wrought iron chairs. haha! They so remind me of my childhood from a picture I saw in a blog. 

     Brekkie mondate this week was spent here and I love the place. The decor stayed away from the now turning 'cultish' New York style/ rustic interiors. The place used just a tad of that but more of warm, classy interiors with a touch of tropical. 
Love this sun-drenched space.
Gasp! Machukka tiles!

     The food played with the whole experience. It was not superior but great nonetheless. It is what you are looking for in a breakfast place. familiar, comfort fare. Mmmm!

H said the chicken longganisa was very good.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf 26th St Bistro
G/F Net Lima Building, 5th Avenue corner 26th Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig (It’s across the Mini Cooper showroom and is in the same building as Wildflour).
From 7-10am, a free 12-ounce cup of coffee comes with all brekkie items.

Ally's All-Day Breakfast Place

     Ally's All- Day Breakfast Place has caused a stir in the Maginhawa Street resto row. We tried it and understood exactly why. They boast of having good pancakes and they have every right to do so. Their pancakes are one of the best in town, fluffy and delicious.

     The place is not at all fancy more of your basic neighborhood coffee shop with a bit of cute details thrown in. You can subtly smell the cooking from the seating area. Who does not want to smell garlic rice and pancakes cooking anyway? Prices are not steep for the quality of food they serve in terms of taste and killer pancakes. YUM!!!!

They have omelets and our beloved Pinoy silog meals.

There are so many pancakes to choose from and you can even make your own concoction.
