|Some table details
Two days after officially opening, I dragged the husband and the eldest daughter to Bonifacio High Street for a late Tuesday lunch. It was packed and we were put on a wait list. We didn't have to wait for a long time though - in less than 5 minutes, we got a table!
|A look inside Sunnies Cafe!
Soft hues of pastels matched with loud and colorful carpet, that's what you'll see inside. They also used a lot of wood installations from walls to ceiling! A bar area, some faux greenery and huge drop lamps - each corner was well thought of.
Checking their menu, we gave the following a try ---
|Stovetop Pork Chops for 370Php
A piece of thick pork chop that was brined for to days, cooked to medium doneness, served with crisp French Beans, roasted marble potatoes and scallion brown rice - this was hubby's choice.

The pork chop was smothered with thick and tasty barbecue sauce and it was good. Nothing exceptional though, the meat was tender and was flavorful.
|Spaghetti al Funghi for 260Php
This was my choice - al dente spaghetti with a rich sauce that had a nice garlic kick! It was topped with a 65-degree egg that was very runny. Mix it in with the pasta and you'll get a very rich and smooth oil based sauce.

There was also a good heaping of kinoko mushrooms in it. I loved this! So simple yet really delicious!
|Chicken and Waffles for 260Php
My daughter asked for Chicken and Waffles. The waffle had a nice crisp from the outside and was soft and warm inside. I wish though that it was a little thicker. The chicken was yummy! Fried country-style, the breading was crunchy and flavorful and the chicken portion was super tender and juicy!

This dish also has a nice runny sunny-side up egg with some touch of truffle. Served with a spicy maple syrup, you can request for a non-spicy version for your child since they just sprinkled the syrup with chili powder. My daughter enjoyed this!
|Charlie's Golden Ticket for 190Php
Cherienne also asked for a milkshake and since she loves Milo, we tried Charlie's Golden Ticket.
Chocolate chip ice cream blended with Milo and Malted Milk and topped with whipped cream. It was smooth and thick! You'll also get some chocolate chips bits to much on.
|Sunnies Funfetti for 290Php
Then we claimed the free dessert - Sunnies Funfetti! Cubes of tres leches cake drenched in more sweet milk and topped with birthday sprinkles - lovely! It's also served with a scoop of vanilla bourbon ice creamed drizzled with caramel sauce and plated with torched marshmallow on the side.
|A plate of happiness!
This was awesome! It's amazing how it's not too sweet! The cake cubes were moist and milky and this is best enjoyed by making sure that you've got a little bit of everything in a spoonful!
|Some more details of Sunnies Cafe!
Overall, it was a good experience. Customer service was great! Our server was on the lookout for whatever we needed - water refill, extra tissue, extra maple syrup, etc etc. It was so easy to call his attention. I think they've also trained their staff to converse in English though there were times that I opted to talk to our server in Tagalog coz he was already having a hard time. Thumbs up for the super effort though!
Definitely going back to try more of their dishes and maybe try their coffee too. Eyeing on the Baked Squid Ink Lasagna, Ricotta Hotcakes and Pumpkin Puree.
