Sunday Chilling - Monte Cafe

Even before the typhoon (Glenda), its been probably months since we had a decent cafe-made coffee.  So that after things have normalized and we have already tidied up in the wake that the storm left behind, a barista-concocted drink sounds about right.

We headed to Monte Cafe, the newest addition to Antipolo's cafe scene (open for business since last year) and basically just settled ourselves in its industrial but homey atmosphere.  We were the first ones there (which is always a delight), and got myself a cappuccino while my daughter had a chocolate milkshake, and my husband a double espresso.  


Monte Cafe has a good selection of appetizers, sandwiches, pasta and rice meals, and from the ones we chose, they are all quite competently made. Good enough for brunch, if you ask me.  For one, we enjoyed the Cheese Pockets


Then the Fish and Chips had a rich-tasting beer batter and served with their own brand of tartar sauce.  The potato chips were home-made as well.


The Lengua was served estofado style (even though the menu labeled it as Pastel de Lengua - but no crust in sight) and slow-cooked towards savory and tender.


All in all, quite a great place to spend a lazy Sunday in.
