Like many Cebu tourist spots, the 10000 Roses Cafe desperately needed repairs after being damaged by Typhoon Odette. With management’s persistence, it bounced back, reopening around six months after the typhoon hit.
The management team reinstalled the 10000 artificial LED roses that made the establishment one of the most Instagrammable places in Cebu. Visitors don’t leave without taking a selfie or a landscape shot of the artificial garden.
By July 2022, the iconic Cordova cafe was in full swing.
A RELAXING OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE
The most well known part of the cafe is obviously the 10000 LED roses that light up beautifully at night. They also create a great backdrop for photos, especially during sunset. As you can see, these artificial flowers are arranged meticulously for a stunning look no matter the time of day.
The 10000 Roses Cafe is a highly-regarded al fresco dining establishment due to its proximity to the Mactan Channel. The cool breeze adds to the relaxing atmosphere, and the breathtaking view of the flowers elevates the overall experience.
WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THE 10000 ROSES CAFE
The garden alone is a pretty sight, with guests from all around Cebu eager to witness the mesmerizing view. Taking selfies in front of the unique flower arrangement or walking along the garden are some of the usual things they do during their visit.
Of course, other than that, they also order food and drinks inside the cafe.
The outdoor dining area offers an open view of the sea and is spacious enough to walk around. Whether you’re alone or with family and friends, the place serves as a great distraction from work or school.
The cafe’s menu includes Italian-inspired dishes like pizza, pasta, and panini, with a selection of beverages like coffee, shakes, and tea.
The rooftop dining area is smaller and doesn’t have a roof over it. However, it will give you a breathtaking view of the garden and the cityscape.
They also have a recreational area with bean bags, where you can lie down and gaze at the stars. You will find lots of people taking selfies or hanging out with their loved ones here.
The best time to visit the cafe is late afternoon towards evening, since this is when the roses begin to light up. The sunset adds to its appeal, and the roses look much better at night.
Some people find themselves staying a while longer just to enjoy the scenery with their loved ones. While there are a lot of establishments that offer good food and ambiance, this particular cafe in Cebu makes every visit a worthwhile experience.
You may compare it with the Sirao Flower Garden in Barangay Sirao or Buwakan ni Alejandra in Balamban, but instead of a vast garden of different types of real, colorful flowers, you have a landscape of 10000 white LED roses that come to life at night.
The experience might be different for some, but one thing’s for sure: the 10000 Roses Cafe is a sight to behold.
Whether you’ll be visiting for the food, ambiance, or view, the place makes a great escape from the bustling city life. Even first time visitors are fascinated with what this beautiful cafe has to offer.
