I’ve been into breakfast dates a lot lately so I’m in the hunt for a breakfast place with a homey and relaxing ambiance. I stumbled upon Rustic Mornings by Isabelo Garden in Marikina. I read promising reviews about this place which entices me to pay a visit.
Entering the place, you are welcomed by the beautiful garden area. The tables are divided into different areas of the garden and each table has a “unique” feel to it. The dining proper are well divided, giving you and the other guests a more intimate feel with your certain someone. We opted to be seated in the garden area, but they also have an indoor room if you prefer air conditioning. I am also surprised by the different decorations around the garden area. Interestingly, the area is decorated with recycled materials such as seashells, seasoning containers, and wine bottles.
Rustic Mornings serve breakfast theme platters, Filipino, American and Italian breakfast. They are specially famous for their Filipino food items and their buttermilk pancakes.
Our food arrived after almost 20 minutes, but we didn’t feel like we waited for that long. The ambiance was relaxing and we were just chatting the whole time. That’s how I like the feel of this place. You won’t be anxious even though you waited to be served that long.
We bought some of their coffee grounds and pancake mix available in the cashier area. The only downside of the ground coffee according to my boyfriend is that the packaging is not resealable.
Overall, I’m really in love with this kind of place. Chill and cozy ambiance with a homey feeling. I recommend it if you’re looking for a unique breakfast place for your next date. 🙂
Rustic Mornings is located at #11 Isabelo Mendoza Street, San Roque, Marikina City.
