Café Mary Grace: Home of the famous ensaymada a Filipino favorite




The success story behind Mary Grace is such an inspiration.  It is what it is today because Mary Grace made it her mission to reach for her star.  It is indicative in her products and even restaurant decorations that she wants to share her thoughts, aspirations, wishes and positivity to everyone and very open vice versa. Little notes on the tables and scribbles on the walls - all of gratitude, optimism and happy experiences says a lot of things about the place.    From baking in her kitchen to having kiosks and stores more than my fingers could count, it was an astounding feat.  Mary Grace is home to patrons spending an hour or two enjoying a warmly lit and cool ambience.  Café Mary Grace gives a holiday feel no matter the season and I just adore that. It’s a place where you can go to and leave your cares away even just for that visit.

Made famous by the all time Filipino favorite ensaymada, Mary Grace is also frequented for the addicting brownies and food for the gods, delicate cheese rolls and lemon squares for “pasalubongs”, festive fruit cakes, apple pies and cheesecakes and my guilty pleasure….the Mango Bene that always urges me to book a flight somewhere tropical.  Last but not least, on days you just want to have fun and let go…3 words…brownie ala mode.

The sweet tooth’s are not the only satisfied customers, Mary Grace has savory specials too. The roster of pasta dishes are all “molto bene” not a bad try for a local restaurant.  Time and again, the chorizo and green olive ends up being my hearty comfort food. The pasta Amatriciana with Italian meatballs is a good try too especially for meat lovers like me.  The Spanish sardines and olives pasta makes for great alternative.  The order that saves the day for me is either the Vigan longganisa with kesong puti or the chicken inasal con pandesal with tomato wansoy salsa. Both are light and fresh yet with a substantial amount of protein.

Hot chocolates are a must try to accompany the sweet treats.  Coffee is acceptable yet quite disappointing; it could be better specially having café for a pretext.  Customer service is good, sometimes too good that at one time, I had approximately 3 sips left still to be enjoyed in my cup of coffee and in comes the good customer service at work eager to clean up my space. Oh the waiter asked if I was done but the cup was already in his hand, I didn’t appreciate that but I still salute you Mary Grace.

Café Mary Grace is a great place for dates, meetings and even gatherings.  Pathfinder and I have celebrated our life’s victories at Mary Grace countless of times and we are certainly looking forward to more. Hope to celebrate with you at Mary Grace, Cheers!
