For Mother’s Day, my parents and I went to Tagaytay and had lunch at Breakfast in Antonio’s. It’s actually my first time to visit this famous restaurant, even though I’ve already heard about it through word of mouth. Breakfast at Antonio’s is pretty much considered as one of the must-try restaurants in the area – So I’m really glad that we’re finally gonna give this restaurant a try (Plus I really love all-day breakfast restaurants too!)
Very spacious interior.
They also have their own bakery, in case you want to buy some fresh bread/baked goodies.
Menu: Indulgent mornings, Breakfast favorites, Pancakes & waffles, Omelette & fritata, Roesti, All day sandwiches, Salad days, The healthy options, Rice potato breakfast, Pizza, Pasta, Lunch specials, Dessert.
Interestingly enough, they don’t serve Filipino breakfast dishes like tapsilog and champorado.
Lasagna Bolognese. This dish comes with roasted aubergines. Very meaty, but I do like my lasagna with more cheese.
Beef Stroganoff – Mmmmm, fresh pasta! Loved the sauce too. The beef slices were very tender as well. All in all, a very good pasta dish.
Since we’re dining at Breakfast at Antonio’s after all, we had to order something breakfast-related. This is their Chocolate Chip Waffle – Topped with chocolate chips and warm chocolate fudge. The waffles had the right amount of crispiness and chewiness, although I do prefer crispy and thin waffles over thick ones. Perhaps one of the best waffles I’ve tried (Although I’m probably saying that because I’m really biased towards waffles more than pancakes… Hehe.)
French Toast – Slices of soft, homemade Turkish bread dipped in cinnamon cream and served alongside the resto’s apple compote and house burnt syrup. UGH. Just the description alone makes me drool. Antonio’s version of French toast is so fancy and quite expensive too – But it’s definitely worth the price.
Freshly-baked Milk Chocolate with Hazelnut Cookies. I’m sorry, but I couldn’t pass this up. And when I say freshly-baked, I do mean fresh – These cookies came straight from the oven. Just like the waffles, these cookies are crispy on the outside, and soft/sweet on the inside. Best paired with a glass of Chilled Milk (not pictured).
What can I say? It’s definitely worth the hype. In fact, I’m still wondering why it took us this long to step inside this place to eat. That aside, it would be nice to come back here on other special occasions so we can get a taste of their other amazing dishes.
Food: 4.5/5 (taste) 4/5 (presentation)
