Batu Cafe is one of those nearby cafes, from my place, that I have always wanted to try. Some of my friends have also been sharing photos of the cafe and its food on their Facebook or Instagram. The photos piqued my interest and I started planning as to when I can eat here.
Around two weeks ago I finally found the time to try this cafe.
Batu Cafe features a vintage-esque, Filipino-esque interior. I find the place to be colorful.
There are a good number of tables and chairs in the cafe. However, I find the place to be quite tight especially when all seats are filled.
For my breakfast I ordered the Crispy Adobo Flakes (P129) and the Nutella French Toast with Bacon Bits (P129 + P15).
The Crispy Adobo Flakes was delicious. However, I was expecting it to be crispier though but that does not matter since it tasted really good. Difinitely added to my list of favorite food.
I also enjoyed the Nutella French Toast with Bacon Bits. Batu Cafe’s homemade bacon tasted really good. I also find that the Nutella and bacon bits worked well together.
I also love how big the serving is. What most cafes do when they serve French toast is a piece of large sliced loaf breaf sliced in half diagonally.
Batu Cafe offers a good variety of Filipino and foreign dishes like the classic Silog meals or pasta. Based on the description of the other dishes on the menu, it seems like everything taste delicious.
Personally, I love their breakfast menu and would like to try it out in the coming weeks.
The price of the food is also reasonable. Most of the dishes are somewhere between P100 to P200. I also remember seeing some dishes less than P100 and above P200.
The service I experienced was good. My food was served in less than 10 minutes. Water was served immediately after they took my order and it was refilled when the glass was half empty.
The waitress taking my order also knew their product well and was able to describe it properly.
Batu Cafe has an okay WiFi connection. I was able to check on my social media on the phone. However, I do not find it to be very fast as compared to the other coffee shops I have been to.
I would recommend Batu Cafe as one of the places to eat here in Davao City.
I think the food here is great at the same time reasonably priced.
I do plan to come back here again and try something else from their menu.
