What We’re Loving Now: The Sunny Side Café’s Pancakes

June 1, 2019

Just a little shy of a month old, the Sunny Side Café located in Boracay’s Station 3 is a bright little coffee shop at the Ground Floor of Sands Hotel. It serves up all-day breakfast dishes to starving beach bums and hungover partygoers who are in the mood for a hearty and satisfying meal.

Make sure to order their pancakes when you visit. Served in portions that are good for sharing, Sunny Side Café’s pancakes have a consistency that’s both fluffy and compact—perfect for mopping up stray puddles of syrup and cream without the pancake disintegrating on your fork.

Malagos Pancake

When it comes to choosing favorites, it’s a draw between their Malagos Chocolate Pancakes (PHP 215) and Espresso Caramel Pancakes (PHP 290) for me. Though it’s tempting to order three varieties in a single visit, you must pace yourself. One plate of pancakes can serve 2-3 persons.

The Malagos Chocolate Pancakes aren’t made for the sweet tooth. Malagos chocolate is known off the bat for its bittersweet taste. It’s generously shaved on top of two chocolate pancakes and smothered with Chantilly cream.

The Sunny Side Café also serves coffee from the EDSA Beverage Design Group. For their Espresso Caramel Pancakes, Sunny Side Café’s Dark Side blend is brewed and mixed into the pancake batter. Once cooked, a thick serving of Dulce de Leche is generously spread on top of these flapjacks.

Aside from the pancakes, other must-tries in The Sunny Side Café are their Bacon & Mango Grilled Cheese Sandwich (PHP 390) and Angus Beef Tapsilog (PHP 375). Actually, you will be spoiled for choice here, and it’ll be hard to not come back.

    I haven’t tried this cafe yet, it looks pretty new. I’ve tried Lemoni Cafe in Boracay, and that was pretty good.

    Cool, I’ll be sure to try this next time I’m in Boracay. Have you tried the Jack’s Omelette in Real Coffee? It’s so simple but so good, and we sit at the counter to watch the cook make it all the time, but we can never replicate it at home. :))
