Where to Eat in Davao : Batu Cafe

image

Food lovers alert! There’s this Batu Cafe, the perfect place to be along Loyola Street Obrero, Davao City. It is located specifically at the Ground floor of Las Casitas Inn 2. They are open every Monday to Sunday from 6:00am to 12:00am and serves snacks and all day meals.

So how did I learn about this place? Well, big thanks to my Davao Bloggers Family and to the owners of Batu Cafe for the invite. We had our food tasting event last March 5, 2016 and I would say it was one of those Superb event I have attended so far. Surely my co bloggers felt the generosity of the owners.

Before I talk about the food, I’d like to share my impression with the place and it’s ambiance.

So far, it is one of those artsy cafe here in Davao which I can really say as #Achieved (OTWOL fan here haha!) I mean it shows like a DIY decoration of bohemian feels but the choice of colors and designs are really perfect for me. I even said to my co blogger that it’s as if I am somewhere outside Davao and I can just imagine a beach outside then it would be perfect. But even without that imaginary beach of mine, the ambiance is really a win for me.

Now let’s talk about the food. Their breads are all freshly home-made and their desserts and pastries are made by Margies Bakeshop- a home-grown bakeshop in Butuan, Agusan del Norte. They also serve home-made ice creams, pastas, rice meal and many others. They actually have a wide selection of international comfort food at a very reasonable prices. Their servings big (good for 2-3) and will surely satisfy you.

Wondering what I have tried during the food tasting event? Check out the following.

Overall, I will give Batu Cafe a 4.9 out 5 stars. They are an all in one place because of the variety of food you can choose. This will be added in my must try place to eat and hangout in the city (been sharing this as well to my officemates and they are excited to dine here). I hope to bring my family here soon. Burp!
