Brunch Buffet at Monsees Bakery & Cafe

Last May 13, Monsees Cafe celebrated Mother’s Day with a brunch / dinner buffet for only P399. It also came with a lize jazz band and flowers for moms. The place was jampacked and we got lots of inquiries as to when the next buffet’s gonna be. What I can suggest for now is that you follow Monsees Cafe in Facebook and Twitter so that you can receive promo updates. We’re also launching our new and improved menu this June so it’s going to be really exciting at the shop.

In the meantime, let me share with you some photos taken during the buffet and hope that you drop by Monsees Cafe one of these days 🙂


Menu consisted of fresh fruits, cereals, assorted breads with butter and Monsees fruit jams, toasts and maple syrup, fresh fruit salad, congee, champorado, plain rice, garlic rice, eggs cooked on the spot (omelet, scrambled, sunny side up), Monsees homemade ham (carving station), lamaiyo (fish), bacon, corned beef, and sausages.

    Hi Jan. I was home recently and saw this place while in a traffic queue. I would have jumped out had I known what was inside. I would head straight to the fish. Beautiful food and setting.
