Bakedhoven Reviews: Kat’s Cafe

Bakedhoven Reviews: Kat’s Cafe

 

Metro Manila was under signal number 1 on Saturday because of Typhoon Lando, but even strong winds, heavy rains and terrible traffic couldn’t stop the Blogger’s Food Trip from happening at Robinson’s Place in Las Pinas. Around 12-15 bloggers attended the event, mostly were from food, lifestyle, and travel niches.

The catch is to try 2 homegrown southern Manila restaurants chartered at Robinson’s Place Las PinasWe were given a list of restaurants prior to the event and I picked Kat’s Cafe and Icings Cafe and Bakery for obvious reasons. I’m writing this post in 2 parts as I want to give a detailed account of my food trip experience from these restaurants I’ve just visited.

So first off, Kat’s Cafe!

Kats Cafe14

I was accomodated by the warm and friendly owner of Kat’s Cafe – Katrece or Kat Gramo. She’s a graduate of Culinary Studies (but she humbly refused to my attempt of calling her “Chef”) and beautiful mommy to twins. Just a fun fact, did you know that her twins were the reason behind the 2 cherries hanging above her cafe’s logo? 🙂

Kat’s Cafe started out as a small neighborhood cafe in BF Resort at Las Pinas, but because of the growing number of its patronizers, Kat with the help of a friend, who happens to be an expert Barista, heeded their call and ventured into a much bigger venue – at Rob Place Las Pinas.

Cleanliness inside the restaurant is impressive. Floors are clean and everything is neat. I love the scent of fresh coffee! It stimulated my senses and brightened up my mood even before I had a dose of it. The cafe offers wi-fi and reading pleasure, check out the mini library at the corner!

The homey and peaceful ambiance of Kat’s Cafe will taunt you to grab a book from their shelf while enjoying their interesting menu. Those shelves by the way also serve as a door to the cafe’s comfort room.

The surprisingly harmonious fusion of masculine and feminine elements is noticeable as showcased through its interiors. The fashionable blend of bricks, warm shades, and rustic displays accentuated every space in the room, making it cozier and well, instagrammable! 🙂

Their menu offerings are not centered to sweet-toothed customers only, as they also serve different pasta dishes and sandwiches! I got for myself Kat’s Aglio Oglio (only Php170) and Miss Piggy Bacon Shake for refreshment.

Kats Cafe1

Kat’s Aglio Olio was served with a generous amount of tasty Spanish sardines, fresh tomatoes, kesong puti and a wedge of lemon on top! At first, I thought the sardines + kesong puti combo won’t come along well, but, it actually worked! Pasta was not overcooked but the slices of garlic bread were a little dry for me though.

Miss Piggy’s Bacon Milkshake is a breath of fresh air! I never imagined that bacons can be a major component in drinks too! Interesting flavor + gigantic serving = Food coma 🙂

They say, “A recipe has no soul, as a cook, you must bring soul to the recipe.” Upon learning from Kat, it took her several attempts before she finally perfected the recipes on her menu. Well, her hardships paid off! It’s just amazing how she turned odd combinations into a masterpiece!

Kats Cafe19

Huge servings are also a plus point for Kat’s Cafe. Bravo for Kat and her staff for providing the best for their customers! It’s not all the time you came across a restaurant that offers affordable and delicious food, fresh recipes, and big servings all at the same time!

Kat’s Cafe also accepts made-to-order cakes and cupcakes! Kat is very creative and her concepts are out of the box! Visit Kat’s Cafe to check out her creations and wonderful food!

    Very nice atmosphere for this cafe, reminds me of a local cafe we have here in Leyte. Having someplace that is nice like that to go and work while enjoying a nice coffee is so needed in the Freelancer/IT world.
