Affectionately referred to as Abacá’s little sister, A Café which opened in early 2011, is a relaxed dining space located in the center of metropolitan Cebu City. While A Café shares some similarities with its more well-known big sister, it has a unique identity of its own. It is a more laidback venue, ideal for small business lunches or brunch with friends with a menu that is as no fuss as the space itself.
A Café serves breakfast all-day to cater to breakfast lovers who may want some buttermilk pancakes or eggs Benedict for lunch and dinner. There are lighter options such as fresh salads, soups, and sandwiches as well as hearty dishes like A Café’s skillets and Angus Burger.

In the vein of a traditional Italian Trattoria – a casual, local gathering place for food, friends and wine – our menu reflects the purity of tradition by relying on the classical & effortless approach. The simple purity of our inspiration comes from the superior ingredients and technique of the Trattoria.
Everything on the menu at Tavolata is handcrafted, using only the finest local and imported ingredients. Our pasta is made fresh daily from 100% semolina from Italy using our bronze die extruder.

Marco Polo Plaza Hotel once called Cebu Plaza is a very famous hotel at Cebu. Situated on top of a hill and very visible especially from your plane seat, this hotel has one of the best international buffets in town. They serve it at their very own Cafe Marco. They have a very good station which serves good Dim sum / Wok Food or Chinese Food. At this station you can also find, Peking Ducks or the native Lechon Cebu is made famous for. Another station has breads, a bit of Japanese thus sushi, salamis, cheeses and cold appetizers. A grilling station and Tempura station you can also find at one corner and of course my favorite the Pastry Section which has its famous Crepe Station.
Antica Osteria -Wines & Deli shop!
Antica Osteria located @ STC Building, #1 Paseo Satrunino, Ma. Luisa Road, Banilad Cebu City has finally opened to cater the retail market, it is the sole distributor of the products imported directly from Italy and France by IL DUCATO TRADING, INC. in Banilad, Mandaue City.
It has been my dream to open a shop, where when you get in, you can feel the ambiance like in Italy, but when Il Ducato started to import other products beyond Italian, we have decided to have the theme of the shop, be European, a mix of Italy, France and even a hint of English or British style.... I would have to say that we were never wrong about it, because when people come in, some will say, it seems that they are inside an italian deli shop "trattoria", "osteria" or in a bar...some say, its got a European feel when they get in...so with this mix of hints and style, we can attract people of different descent...and that was satisfying!
THE LAST ONE IS MY REGULAR HAUNT, LOVE IT, GREAT FOOD, GREAT PLACE, GREAT PRICE!!! = FANTASTIC IMO!
