My friend told me that a couple of years ago, she and her friends attended a very simple and intimate bridal shower at Mom and Tina's Bakery Cafe along Pasig City across Tiendesitas. She told me that they have great tasting pasta and sandwiches.
Mom and Tina's Bakery Cafe
Now, we are here at Mom and Tina's Bakery Cafe with their other branch at Katipunan.
I will be able to try their pasta since my friend spoke highly about them.
The place was fully packed. We were wait listed but fortunately, we were first in the list. It was just a good five minutes when we got our seats.
Everything look spectacular. From the facade to the Santa Claus decorations that seemed customized from a different country. Their cake or dessert selection was really delightful to look at. There were so many kinds of cupcakes. So many pleasing colors. And the cake flavors were very tempting.
For our starters, we ordered Homemade Soup (half) and Kani Mango Salad (half).
The Homemade Soup was really good. Actually, I forgot to ask the waiter what it was but it tasted like potato soup. It was creamy and thick. I like the roll that comes with the soup. It was so soft. It felt that it was freshly baked. It is much better than dinner rolls or garlic toasted bread.
Kani Mango Salad was also good. This is one of my favorite salads. The mangoes may not be as sweet but the freshness of the vegetables made this salad tastes good. The dressing was also delicious. It wasn't too sour like mayonnaise. I loved it.
For my main dish, I ordered their Baked Chicken Macaroni. Actually, they forgot to place this specific order so we waited like 10 minutes to be served right after we finished our appetizers. We didn't complain because the staff are really nice to us. They do make an extra effort to make us comfortable. The waiters make small conversations with the customers. Even the supervisor approached us and asked if we have pending orders. Good customer service also one of the reasons why people will come back to specific a shop...not just the product.

Their Baked Chicken Macaroni was really good because of the overload melted cheese on it. I liked the shredded chicken inside the pasta. I was expecting that it would be chunks but it wasn't. Also, their rolls or bread tasted so good with their pasta.
I loved the ambiance. I loved the decorations. I loved the service and most especially the food although the portion was minimal.
