With The Hubby and I's schedule at work (painfully opposite as I work during the day and he takes the night), breakfast together has become a welcome leisure for both of us. It's a time when we can quietly discuss (because the kids are either asleep or in school) our daily activities and just catch up.
And so one early morning after driving an aunt to the airport, we decided to try this quaint café along C5 road in Pasig. We've often passed by this café and I've always wondered what sort of food they serve but never got the chance to dine there. Anyway, I am glad we finally did on this lovely Sunday morning.
The café-restaurant had just opened when we arrived at 7:05 in the morning. The place was still empty and we were the first customers.
I love it when we get to place and it's just us there! I had the place to myself to admire the beautiful, well-chosen interiors. It's so elegant yet homey. The couches look gorgeous and inviting and they smell great too (not like other restaurants where the it smells like food everywhere).
I love the chandeliers and the country look and feel of the restaurant.
And the table centerpiece that I want to take home :) Simple yet lovely.
Going to a restaurant for the first time means taking a risk on what to order. Normally before heading to dining place, I would check food blogs for reviews and recommendations. I didn't have the chance to do that this time so instead of ordering from the breakfast menu, I decided to try their Meat Lasagna and I am glad I did. The lasagna sauce is bursting with a flavor of melted cheese and cream that I almost forgot it's a pasta dish.
The garlic bread that comes with the dish perfectly complements the lasagna that I actually ordered additional breads. I used the lasagna sauce as bread butter. Super sarap, without exaggeration!

The Hubby decided to stick with a breakfast fare and ordered Waffles Pancakes with Vienna Sausage. The waffles are soft like fluffy pancakes just the way they promised.

No matter how early in the morning, my coffee must always be iced just the way I like it. Thankfully, Mom & Tina's have Iced Coffee on their beverage list and you can even go for decaf!

We didn't get to try any of their cakes and cupcakes but they all look gorgeous from display. At a price range of Php45 to Php55 per cupcake, I am definitely going to give it a try on my next visit. (Me thinking of future parties where cupcakes are a staple!)
The only downside comment I would share at this post is that the serving is quite small for the price of the dish. Good thing the food taste good otherwise I would even call it expensive.
Well, we all have to pay for quality and the food here at Mom & Tina's is nothing but that. I am raring to go back!
