It’s Tea Time at Cafe Annabelle’s!
I spent the previous weekend with my mom (a.k.a the best-est gal pal ever) in the land of durian and pomelo, Davao City. We left from Cagayan de Oro on a Friday evening and arrived in Davao City the next morning. The 8-hour plus bus ride was a pain in the ass, literally.
Since we were in the city for a short time, I only had the chance to visit one cute cafe. My mom and I were looking for a place to eat lunch in and we saw this pretty cafe inside Abreeza Mall. Cafe Anabelle’s is a must-try place for everyone who loves good food in a cute and colorful place.
My mom and I ordered their combo meals which consists of a meal and soup of your choice, a bowl of either a sweet corn or pumpkin soup, and a plate of their dessert of the day. The pumpkin soup was good but since I’m a sucker for anything with corn, I liked the sweet corn soup better. My mom’s plate of fish fillet was a tad bit salty for her taste but it was good for me.
The beef and mushroom plate that I ordered was great. I love the tenderness of the beef. Most of the beef and mushroom meals I’ve had before wasn’t cooked well. The meat was always hard to chew, but Cafe Anabelle’s beef and mushroom is an exception. Their dessert of the day was lemon cake. My mom and I enjoyed the each of our slices. I’m in love with the sweet and tangy flavor. It was also quite moist too. Ahh! Thinking about it makes me wish I had a plateful of it right now.
The cafe gives off this homey and youthful vibe. The lovely mix of pastel colors made me feel like I’m in a little girl’s doll house. I love the floral wallpaper near the counter too. The cafe also has a play-area for your little boys and girls! The colorful wall decal and white picket fence is so cute, my heart can’t contain it!
Cafe Anabelle’s is the right place to enjoy a good meal while your kids enjoy playing. I’ll definitely come back for more lemon cake and maybe try their tea time menu!
If you’re looking for a cute place to hang out, grab some tea or coffee, or enjoy plates and plates of delectable desserts, visit Cafe Anabelle’s at Level 1, Abreeza Mall, Ayala Business Park, J.P. Laurel Avenue, Poblacion District, Davao City.
Forgive me for the low quality photos. I tried to snap photos using my phone to check if the quality is a-okay since I’ll be saving my dslr for bigger shoots~teehee.
