Stela and I are quite the breakfast food fanatics so its no surprise we had to visit this all day breakfast haven called Yolk – Coffee & Breakfast. We’ve heard lots of good things about this place from the food to the ambiance and it totally met our expectations.
I liked the first table best with the natural lighting and fixtures combined (plus, it’s dibs on the wooden cube 1!) The menu was very straighforward and simple and it surely is all about the eggs.
The place had a very homey feel to it. There were various things to look at and it made me think of the owners taste in interior design. Don’t you just want to curl up and read a book right there?
Don’t bother touching the leafy hangings right there, I assure you they’re real and brittle to the touch.
Luckily for us we came at a good time because the place wasn’t packed. Just us and that korean lady you see there and of course the staff who were very nice and well oriented.
and that my friends to the rectangular plate at the top is the Eggs Benny Bacon. It’s made up of poached eggs with bacon bits and mushrooms underneath infused with hollandaise sauce. It is then paired with some toast and a light salad for that complete meal. Quite the combination of I say so. That odd little thing on the blue plate below is their french toast in which the flavor certainly makes up for its looks.
Just look at that rightly done toast topped with apple mash and syrup goodness. This has to be one of the best french toasts out there! Stela says it’s best paired withan extraserving of bacon.
This one right here is a variation of their eggs benny which they call the Eggs Florentine. I recommend this one for the health buff or for those who are on a ‘no-bacon diet’. Their poached eggs were perfectly done.
I mean look at this oozing eggy goodness!
For the closing remarks we tried their Espresso Panna Cotta. Now i’m not much of a coffee drinker but this dessert made me want to do another round.
If you’re ever around Mabolo Cebu City, specifically at 80 Tres Borces Street from Tuesdays to Sundays and not strapped for cash, I recommend you check this place out! The food is great, the ambience is homey and it’s worth the second, third or possibly many trips in the future with friends, a companion or at a family setting who also had a love for breakfast food.
