A BREAKFAST CAFE WITH A VIEW
TCH is home to some of Cebu’s most scenic tourist spots and outdoor dining establishments, and Outback Servo is the newest cafe to take advantage of the location’s aesthetics.
Some cafes and restaurants along TCH, however, barely have a view, showing you a bunch of buildings and infrastructure instead of allowing you to appreciate nature at its finest.
But at this breakfast cafe, you have a view of a scenic horizon full of rich foliage and vegetation. The lush green trees can be a worthwhile alternative to the views of the city, which can get stale and overrated for some.
There are barely any nearby establishments, making the cafe feel more private and intimate. If you visit in the morning, you’ll likely have the place all to yourself.
The cafe is just along the highway, so it won’t be hard to find.
The first floor is covered in an impressive interior, giving the cafe a modern aesthetic. The wooden chairs offer a rustic vibe, elevated by wooden beams and large pots of plants.
Several artworks can also be seen scattered around the cafe, giving it the coffee shop vibe that most people love about cafes.
The second floor has the same rustic design, but it is more spacious and has a few chairs facing the mountains. These are perfect for selfies or portraits, or if you simply want to enjoy the ambiance and view.
Surrounded by luscious greenery and a relaxing cool breeze, it’s easy to see that every trip to this place will surely be worth it.
This breakfast cafe also has a selection of meals, snacks, and drinks that will satisfy many food trip enthusiasts. The mix of international and local favorites makes for a delightful continental breakfast.
Many establishments use the backdrop of the city as a selling point for their al fresco dining. Outback Servo, on the other hand, is a more private, intimate venue that isn’t so hard to find, and is one of the best places to get a good breakfast meal when traveling along TCH.
