Mom and Tina's

Last August 6, I gave a treat to my former team mates in a bakery cafe named Mom and Tina's along Dela Rosa St. corner Perea St. in Makati. I've heard a lot of good reviews about them so I decided to make a reservation and try it out ourselves.

The ambiance when you enter the cafe is very homey. Apart from that you will smell the aroma of baked goodies. They are couches and even dining tables that you usually see inside a home. Te wall paper and the lightning gives you a welcoming vibe that you will surely make you relax and enjoy their food.

The bottomless drinks is Php 60 where as regular drinks cost Php 45.

(Lemonade - love the color of the drink!)
(Red Iced Tea - the middle glass indicates that it's bottomless
because of the color of the straw)

The cafe reserved us a table at the back of the store which is perfect because once we are together, it gets really noisy...hehehe.

The prices of their dishes and pastries are affordable. I was not able to memorize the menu prices but rest assured that your wallet or credit card will not complain ;)

Chicken Spinach Lasagna with 2 pcs. Garlic Bread (Php 140)
Best SellerFish Fillet Sandwich with Fries (Php 240)
Creamy Carbonara with 2 pcs. Garlic Bread (Php 160)
Fettucini Matriciana with 2 pcs. Garlic Bread (Php 145)

Blueberry Cheesecake (Php 135)
Mini Sansrival (Php 50)
Oreo Chessecake (Php 125)
Best Seller ...and it is! Promise!

We were all busy eating our own orders while chatting away. Of course, in between the chews, gulps and talks we always make it a point to have our pics taken.

I was expecting another guest and she came when almost everyone is done eating their respective food.

It's better to be late than never...Marj!

She ordered Chicken Relleno with rice which cost Php 180. I ordered the same meal for Hubby for his dinner. Sorry I don't have a photo of that dish.

Since the whole gang is present, we talk nonstop with lots of pictures taken. Oieyds and Con went to the front of the shop to purchase a "pasalubong". I was taken by surprise when they came back on our table singing happy birthday followed by Mon and Tina's staff holding cupcakes with a candle each for me to sweet of them.

Mocha cupcake and Chocolate cupcake cost around Php 35-50 each.

Thank you to my former team mates. I missed our team and especially each one of you whom I easily get along with during the first few days when I was still a newbie. Hope we can be together again....hehehe...

Thanks Ninch and Gi for your gifts, for others who don't have any I'm still waiting for the whole month of August...ahahaha!

MST - Marj, Me, Ninch, Gi, Con and Oieyds (our muse...hehehe)
Thank you for making my post bday celebration extra special. Love you all! Mwahugs!

I was happy when I get home and Hubby is surprised to see me early. He thought that I will be spending the wee hours of the night with my friends which happen most of the time.

Anyways, I gave him his dinner which turned into his breakfast the following day since he already cook fried hotdogs for his meal. He gladly chowed the cupcakes given to me by Con and Oieyds...hehehe. He said that the cupcakes are good! :)
