Sunnies Cafe Is the Most Instagrammable Brunch Spot in Manila

We’ve got your weekend plans covered.

The weekend is officially upon us and we all know what that means — brunch. For the latest installment of our “HYPEBAE Brunch” series, we made our way to The Philippines‘ sunny capital of Manila where we got to indulge at one of the most Instagrammable restaurants in the city.

Sunnies Cafe, one of the many outlets under the Sunnies company co-owned by Martine Ho, Georgina Wilson, Bea Soriano-Dee and Eric Dee, opened its doors back in July 2016 at Bonifacio Global City’s High Street and has since then expanded to two more locations: SM Megamall and Alabang Town Center. Boasting Californian-style retro interior, the restaurants are outfitted with pastel walls and diner-inspired neon signs.

We, of course, left the café with happy stomachs thanks to Executive Chef, Carlo Miguel. Read on to see what went down on our visit to Sunnies Cafe.

THIS PLACE IS PERFECT FOR: Brunch loving millennials with a strong social media game. This restaurant boasts Instagram-worthy plants that will go well with all your food photos and lifestyle shots.

WHAT YOU SHOULD ORDER: We opted to order one dish from each category spanning pancakes, rice bowls, breakfast plates and healthy options.

For pancakes, we went for the chicken and pancakes, ₱315 PHP (approximately $6 USD), featuring a country-style boneless fried chicken, bacon and thyme-infused pancakes topped with a sunny side up egg drizzled with maple syrup. The chicken was cooked to perfection and paired well with the fluffy and moist pancakes — it was the perfect combination of salty and sweet. One dish we didn’t know we would end up loving was the arroz ala cubana bowl, ₱235 PHP (approximately $5 USD), comprised of savory ground meat, a sunny side up egg and banana croquettes placed on top of brown rice. The banana croquettes were absolutely delectable, full of texture and flavor.

For those who gravitate towards healthier options, be sure to order the greek yogurt bowl, ₱285 PHP (approximately $6 USD), topped with berries, fresh fruits, granola, honey and mint leaves. If you have a sweet tooth, the brioche french toast, ₱325 PHP (approximately $6 USD), will definitely satisfy your sugar cravings. The buttery french toast comes with whipped cream, maple syrup and caramelized fruits to balance out the sweet notes of the dish.

Finally, Chef Carlo treated us to some dessert because according to him, it’s never too early for cake. Rounding out our brunch was the upcoming citrus lemon cheesecake that had just the right amount of zest, balancing out the sweetness of the cake and cleansing our palettes. Chef Carlo also introduced Sunnies Cafe’s top-selling item, the sunnies funfetti, ₱325 PHP (approximately $6 USD) — a tres leches cake paired with salted caramel ice cream and topped with whipped cream dashed with birthday sprinkles.

OUR FAVORITE DRINK: One of our top picks from the drinks menu is the café’s iced coconut milk latte, ₱185 PHP (approximately $4 USD), because brunch isn’t complete without a good cup of coffee.
