Tazza Cafe & Patisserie

This upscale small restaurant cafe imbibes a sophisticated look and hip modern vibe serving light meals, refreshments and pastries that are inexpensive. 

Literally the cafe is adorned with upside down "tazzas" or cups & saucers hence the name. 

This is a great place to talk to your friends and have your usual dessert fix to go with the chitchats. Though it wouldn't hurt too if you order a cup of tea or coffee. 

The Cheese Steak sandwich for me was really flavorful. The steak slices were succulent with a hint of sweetness to it and the melted cheese was mildly tangy and gooey. It was served on a crunchy bun with lettuce and fried onions.

The Beef Stroganoff Pasta was a creamy pasta dish. It was saucy and the pasta noodle was just cooked right plus the meat chunks were soft and tender. 

And to satisfy our sweet tooth cravings, we ordered one of the best sellers in the house which is the warm brownie ala mode. We tried the mint brownie as well. Both are really delish I must say. 

I do have one regret here though, I should have gotten the large cucumber mint iced tea instead of the regular size.

Camia St. Cafe & Resto

This cafe is a pleasant place to stay with no loud music and reasonable noise level.  It has an average menu except for the Ostrich meals that I find really interesting.  

They have almost all the pastries that I like from cakes to cookies down to cupcakes. There are available power outlets as well for laptops to use for more than a short period of time which is for me a must for students, professionals and writers like me who are among the list of people who frequent cafes.

I sampled their Ostrich Salpicao with garlic. The meat was cooked well, tender and delicious because it was bathed in generous amount of gravy topped with crunchy garlic.

The baked macaroni which for me is a comfort food was hearty. It's great for sharing though it would have been better if it was paired with garlic bread instead of ordinary bread toasted. 

Their red velvet cake is by far one of the best I've ever eaten. It was rich with decadent frosting, appeared to be moist and quite tasty.

They are open 24 hrs.
