(SPOT.ph) While there's no shortage of brunch spots in Bonifacio Global City, new places to check out are always welcome—as they say, variety is the spice of life. One of the newer ones in the area is Caffe Freddo, which offers all-day breakfast options including ube and matcha pancakes!
Caffe Freddo offers a wide range of what they dub "modern European brunch" by Chef Marcus Gfeller. Gfeller made a name for himself with fine-dining restaurants like Grassi’s, Soleil, and Aqua, but his menu for Caffe Freddo is more laid-back with pancakes, toasts, rice bowls, and more. From the extensive sandwich selection, we're already eyeing the Tuna Poke Sandwich (P320), a flat-bread roll stuffed with fresh tuna sashimi, caper aioli, romaine lettuce, and pickles. The Avocado Tartine (P270), meanwhile, is their take on the popular avocado toast with feta, tomatoes, avocado, and basil on grilled sourdough.
For those with a sweet tooth, sample Caffe Freddo's pancakes. There's the Ube Pancake (P250), fluffy ube pancakes topped with coconut butter and muscovado syrup, while the Matcha Pancake (P250) comes topped with berries, whipped butter, honey, and whipped cream.
Of course, if you must have rice for breakfast, Caffe Freddo has rice bowls for you—you can even customize it to have white rice, brown rice or even savory oats. For something new, have the Lox & Rosti (P380) with cured salmon, potato cakes, poached egg, and vegetable preserve on your choice of grain.
Pair all these with coffee—Caffe Freddo gets their beans from New York café Bluestone Lane—and get a much-needed power-up, any time of the day.
Caffe Freddo is at The Spa Building, 9th Avenue, Bonifacio High Street, Bonifacio Global City.
