Maginhawa Food Trip: The Breakfast Table + Crepeman Cafe | Restaurant Review

My family is quite adventurous when it comes to food. I remember DH used to search online and he would drive us as far as Pampanga just to experience Chef Claude Tayag's Bale Dutung menu.

Nowadays, we need not travel far because more and more restaurants are cropping up especially in Maginhawa Street, Sikatuna Village in Quezon City. We tried two restaurants one fine Saturday- The Breakfast Table & Crepeman Cafe.

The Breakfast Table

Adobo Omurice Php 175

 2 Eggs | Toasted Adobo Chunks | Adobo Rice | Petite Salad

The restaurant clearly needs a makeover or an upgrade (?) especially the couch. Initially, we were eying for the couch but it was positioned so low, I doubt any person could eat there comfortably. We transferred to a regular table instead.

When it was time to order, the restaurant's specialties were out of stock. We were left with no choice but to order the following items on the menu- Adobo Omurice, Steak and Eggs & TBT Spanish Bacon.

Adobo Omurice sounds fancy but it's really nothing like that. It consists of pieces of  toasted adobo chunks in adobo rice wrapped in 2 scrambled eggs. A petite salad (slices of tomato & cucumber on greens) is served on the side. Nothing fancy, nothing special.

Steak and Eggs Php 315

 Australian Rib-Eye | Chimichurri Sauce | 2 fried eggs | Tomato Confit | Roasted Potatoes

I always order a steak whenever I see one on the menu. More often than not, it is a bad decision. If it is not a steak house., don't bother. But honestly, I never learn... tsk!

TBT Spanish Bacon Php 215

Spanish Bacon aka Tocino | 2 Eggs | Choice of Plain, Sardine, Garlic or Coffee Rice | Atchara or Ginisang Kamatis

TBT Spanish Bacon was the only dish that we enjoyed. There were only a few strips of pork on the plate though which was sad ; (

The Breakfast Table is located at 189 Maginhawa St. cor. Makadios St., Sikatuna Village, Quezon City 433 3597.

Crepeman Cafe

Mango Peach Sweet Crepe

Mango | Peach | Whipped Cream | Kisses | Ice Cream

After a disappointing lunch, we went to find The Nook Cafe, a Harry Potter-inspired cafe. We were there at around the time it opened (1PM). We were shocked to find the dimly-lit place packed with families, even the space on the second level was full. I guess I have to schedule another visit to taste the widely popular, Butterbeer.

Luckily, I spotted Crepeman Cafe a few doors away from The Nook Cafe where we had the yummiest crepe that I have ever tasted. The price isn't bad at. I think one order of Sweet Crepe costs a little over a hundred pesos with ice cream on top.

Mocha Frappe Php 105 (not in photo); Cappuccino Php 80

Well, I can say that our trip to Maginhawa was not a waste after all. We found an affordable and yummy dessert place in Crepeman Cafe.

Crepeman Cafe is located at 168 Maginhawa cor. Mapagkumbaba St, Sikatuna Village, Quezon City 435 6191
