Café Buenaventura is located in Purok 2, Brgy. Payahan 6710 Calbayog, Philippines.
Calbayog City is a 15 to 20 minutes drive away from home. After running some errands and having 3 hours left to spend before heading home, we decided to try a cafe in Calbayog. I learned about this cafe through a friend so I am excited to try it with my siblings.
Café Buenaventura in Calbayog City
We arrived at around 3 PM. There were only a few cars parked, which made me giddy because I love uncrowded cafes. Parking space was not a problem so it’s a plus point for me. Not sure though during peak hours.
There are tents set up outside the cafe which can accommodate bigger groups. If you’re with your family and friends it’s better to dine-in on those tents. For us, we opted a table inside because it’s 3 pm in the afternoon, the sun is still up and we needed the comfort of the aircon inside. (yay!)
We took our time in picking what to order because they do have a lot on their menu and everything looks good. But we did settle for pizza, pasta, and fries. A little too much for a merienda I think.
We got a Filipino Style Spaghetti (Php180), Ham and Cheese Pizza (Php260) and French Fries (Php150). Their food is as good as it looks like, plus the generous serving. A coffee-lover in me can’t say no to a cup of cappuccino (Php100) even in the afternoon. 🙂 Choco Hazelnut Frappe (Php150) for my brother and Lavander Blossom Frappe (Php150) for my sister which was served later on.
I also have to mention the serving time because it’s one of the things that turned me off in a restaurant or café – it didn’t take that long so another plus points for me.
Café Buenaventura Menu
For those asking for their menu and the prices of their foods, here it is.
Around 5 in the afternoon, that’s when the crowd started to arrive. I think that the best time to visit is from dusk to dinner. They have beautiful lights on the tents at night. We will try next time.
IS IT WORTH IT?
The ambiance of the place is actually cozy. Everything looks so calming and homey. Staffs are very accommodating.
It is a breath of freshness in regards to Calbayog’s cafes.
So yes, for me, it is worth it! The food is good and it is a great place to lounge and kill time. Me and my siblings were able to catch up with our lives and gossips (Ooopss!) while eating our snacks. The price on their menu is reasonable, given their service and place, for me, it was worth paying for.
