As you savor fan-favorite comforts and exquisite pastries, you’ll feel right at home in our quaint yet elegant café at Bungalow Cafe Philippines.
The bungalow is a well-known oasis for brunch lovers and a monument to the traditional culinary principles of quality over quantity, premium ingredients, and from-scratch cooking.
The laid-back café, however, is pleasantly modern, fusing well-known comforts with their contemporary flair through food and décor.
Their other sweet, savory, and drinkable creations are also not to be missed, even though their pastries continue to sell out every day.

This is the full review of Bungalow Cafe Philippines:
1. The Place
Unbeknownst to many, Metro Manila’s South is unquestionably the most chill region. The South’s laid-back charm has always been a breath of fresh air for city dwellers, perhaps due to the open spaces and the relatively less intense traffic.
This perfect place to unwind in the South is Bungalow Café and Bakery. You are immediately taken from the hectic city to a stylish and rustic farmhouse with light and airy interiors that encourage you to take it all in.
Despite how instagrammable the café is already, the food is what will make it your new go-to brunch spot.
They serve a variety of savory and sweet dishes that taste just as good as they look, so their meals aren’t just a treat for your palate—they also feed goals for Instagram!
2. The Ambience
Bungalow Cafe & Bakery will likely be at the top of your South friends’ lists if you ask them for advice on cafes and restaurants.
You’ll want to take pictures of the restaurant for your Instagram feed because of its relaxed and cozy atmosphere. “An ode to our parents’ and grandparents’ original home.
“Our first residence was this eatery. Our passion evolved into wanting to share it with you”, some guests said in a Facebook post. Every nook is genuinely Instagram-worthy!
3. Signature Dishes
See the pre-order menu at Bungalow Cafe Philippines for some tasty items to take home.
Along with their in-demand pastries, they also provide decadent handcrafted ice creams in exotic flavors like pastillas and earl grey.
Here are some of their signature menus that you need to try:
- Doughnuts and croissants
- Berries and ricotta toast
- Sundried tomato pesto.
4. The Food
However, Bungalow Cafe Philippines’ menu will entice you to return more often than their appearance. The café offers a wide variety of dishes and beverages that will appeal to both experienced and novice diners.
If you’re curious about the most well-liked menu items at Bungalow Cafe Philippines, we’ve listed a few.
a. Potatoes & Gravy
Fans of potato poppers, mojos, and fries, rejoice! Another delicious option from Bungalow Café is this hybrid potato dish. Crispy potatoes, bacon-sausage gravy, and charred three cheeses are all included in potatoes & gravy.
Three different kinds of cheese, indeed! Ricotta cheese, house cheese blend, and parmigiano reggiano are among them. Are you already salivating?
b. Adobo Rice
The Bungalow adobo rice, which features pulled pig adobo topped with garlic-mushroom fried rice, mango salsa, and a fried egg, is one of the restaurant’s best-selling meals. This dish is the epitome of flavor fusion.
c. Maple Blueberry & Ricotta Pancakes
The Bungalow Café also offers breakfast options all day long. We advise choosing the maple blueberry and ricotta pancake from their all-breakfast menu.
The majority of people seem to like it! Eat all the homemade ricotta, granola, and maple-blueberry syrup you want.
d. Squid Ink Seafood Pasta
The ideal combination of your favorite seafood dishes on one plate!
The squid ink seafood pasta consists of squid ink spaghetti that has been topped with shrimp, clams, scallops, squid, pistachios, parsley, lemon sauce, and a garlicky tomato sauce.
Additionally, Bungalow Café offers a wide variety of croissants, including butter, chocolate, pistachio, cheese, fruit, truffle, and much more! There are many options available at the café, which serves both sweet and savory croissants.
Doughnuts have to be the one item that Bungalow is well known for. This might be the thing that brought the café’s fame to new heights.
Doughnut flavor options at Bungalow Café are plentiful. When we say something, we really do mean IT.
To give you an idea, these are some of their most popular doughnut flavors: Auro Glazed, Homer, Tres Leches, Strawberry Cream, Creme Brulee, Fruit Tart, Smores, Espresso Chocolate, and Vanilla Bean with Honey. Every week, new flavors are introduced as well as existing ones.
Vietnamese Coffee, Birthday Cake, Turon with Lanka, Earl Grey, and Champorado (with tuyo on top! ), among other unusual flavors, are some of their best-known offerings.
Just a heads-up: Their donuts sell out very quickly, so you might want to pre-order!
The Bungalow Cafe Philippines is renowned for its brunch, dinner, and cocktail menus.
Every day, all day long is happy hour! They offer a wide selection of mixed drinks, including Mimosa, Bungalow Sangria, Pink Sangria, Berry Gin & Tonic, Paloma, and Cucumber Gin.
The café’s milkshakes are combined with Bungalow’s homemade ice cream, and they are served in a unique way that entices customers to try all the flavors.
And the Belgian Mocha and Strawberry Frost are two of their best-selling beverages. Play “Milkshake” by Kelis through Alexa.
i. Eggs Benedict
Despite not looking like the typical American breakfast, Bungalow’s Eggs Benedict sure does look delicious!
Country ham, sous vide eggs, and hollandaise sauce are used to top a slice of sourdough in this breakfast dish.
To make the meal even more filling, this is served with a side salad and crispy potatoes.
j. Lux on Avo-Toast
Many Filipinos don’t like avocados on toast, but Bungalow’s Lux On Avo-Toast just could change your mind!
With this breakfast item, croissant toast is covered with gravlax (graveled salmon), avocado slices, ricotta-scrambled eggs, tartar sauce, dill oil, and chives. A crisp salad is also provided on the side.
