Food lover? You bet I am. I love to eat but I refuse if it’s too expensive for my pocket. I would rather make my own than enjoy the food and starve for the rest of the week. Yep, practicality. Finding this little cafe just near Lola’s home was a gem. It was a place that was made for me and all the others who love good food but can’t afford in an expensive restaurant.
Sweet Street Cafe is located in the old PUJ Terminal in Barangay Pajo, Lapu-Lapu City, just across GMC Arcade. The cafe has been a hit with the locals of Mactan Island because they offer delicious food and drinks at a very affordable price. They have different dishes from salads to pasta and as a pasta lover, this has been my favorite hang out every time I crave for one. The cafe usually opens at 8:00 AM and closes at 8:00 PM from Monday to Saturday. Unfortunately, they are close on Sundays.
I have been visiting the cafe for how many times now and their Aglio Olio paired with fresh Mango Shake is my favorite on the menu. Everything on the menu is Php 50.00. Yes, you read it right. Everything is Php 50.00. Imagine? For Php 50.00 you get to enjoy an order of pasta and your favorite shake. Affordable, isn’t it? Not just that, what I also love about the cafe aside from the affordable food is the free wifi, good ambiance, and excellent customer service. In fact, I have almost tried everything that is written on the menu except the salads, I am not much of a fan of green leafy things :D. Their only downside is the space because it is limited and small but aside from that, I would give this cafe a 9 out of 10.
How to go there?
If you are from Cebu City, ride a jeepney to Mandaue/Parkmall. From Parkmall, you can ride a jeepney with the Opon Mercado Route. Your landmark should be the GMC Arcade and the Super Metro. The cafe is just across.
