Café Laguna began as a labor of love for the Urbina Family. Coming from a long line of fine cooks, Lita Urbina decided to share her culinary talents with everyone. With the help and encouragement of her family, she started Café Laguna and served Filipino food with distinctive taste incomparable to this day. Food that not only was good but which brought memories of home cooked meals shared with friends and family.
I tried Puto Bumbong (Sticky Rice) w/ Shredded Coconut and Sugar, Tempura Fried Kang Kong, Kare-Kare, Pancit Palabok and more. The flavor of the food is edgy compared to other Pinoy Cuisne restaurant; it has a twist in which the delicious part of the food will remain in your tongue. Actually, that’s the exciting part there aside from the innovation of the looks and on how they present it to their customers; satisfying enough to try. Prices of the food were reasonable.

I am pretty satisfied with this restaurant however; I will only give them 8/10 since I haven’t tried their real service yet. The owner invited us to try Cafe Laguna though and she personally served us their specialties but as far as I observed, the staff were attentive and friendly. On weekend, I will visit them again to see this cafe real score. Again, this is a good place to visit and eat. Ideal for people looking for a home cooked meal and definitely good for foreigners who's looking for a real pinoy cuisine. Cafe Laguna will surely going to leave your poor tongue wanting for more.
