DEFENSIVE FOODIE My family and I love to eat veggies, fruits and drink liters of water a day (especially me, I always think I’m an marine creature on my past life if there is such, for my great love for fluid intake). We try to balance our meals AT HOME but whenever we go out on a simple family bonding, say inside a mall or in a stone-throw away fastfood or convenient store, can’t resist when our cravings go haywire sometimes most of the time, LOL. Resistance as the say is futile… I say particularly when food is notably delicious!
I always wanted to try CAFE BRETON but only had a chance last weekend (yes, just before we had our panic buying preparedness-grocery shopping in Landmark, TriNoma, in Quezon City).
The comment posted by one of my blog buddies, Ingrid of Urban Mudra in my earlier entry about desserts to try this quaint food place was really compelling! I brought my wife, Tina and our son, Gabby to have our glucose fix which was perfect before we hit the grocery shelves.
I was surprised that Cafe Breton’s menu is so reasonably priced and that we only spent less than PhP500 for everything we’ve tried. Times like these, families have to be extra conscious of domestic budget and luckily, this homey Mediterranean-Grecian inspired resto will not make you spend too much on dining, at the same time, there’s no compromise with the quality of food they serve.
Gabby was so delighted that he had a handful of yummies…
He and his mom shared on those tall glasses of sweet refreshments.
STRAWBERRY COBBLER, PhP 107.14 + It has generous servings of plump soft-chewy strawberries and whipped cream. Gabby, who loves strawberry-flavored anything other than chocolates, unsurprisingly liked this!
He also tried the smoothy mango shake, although I like it more than he did. In case you don’t know yet, I’m a sucker for mangoes.
MANGO SHAKE, PhP 84.82+. It’s near velvety consistency and taste of real ripe mangoes makes it different to other commercial shakes and smoothies.
I now believe that a visit to Cafe Breton isn’t complete without trying a plate of their heavenly crepes!
LA PINAY, PhP 142.86+ This perfectly thin crepe was filled with ample volume of riped mango slices, topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate drizzle. I swear, this has been the most delicious crepe I’ve ever tasted. Can’t wait to revisit Cafe Breton for another plate!
While my son and wifey were enjoying their sweet moment together with their orders, I felt satiated after finishing my plate and sipping a cup of coffee…
CAPPUCCINO, PhP 75.89+. Foam’s just right…a nice way to end a sweet treat.
We like it here. Definitely.
