I would love to attend a lunch meeting. A good breather from stressful office work.
I can smell coffee brewing
Coffee lovers must agree with what’s written on the walls as I do.
What a good welcome sight for Openrice Foodies
I have my list of favourites among the food that we were served with although I was able to sample most of the dishes. I was served with dessert first.
My favourite has got to be Bannoffee Pie which was a combination of banana and toffee.
Bannoffee Pie - I confess, I'm addicted to this
Other favorites in terms of cupcake has got to be their NY Cheesecake Boohberry and Dulce de Leche.
There are other interesting cupcakes though like their Death by Choco-La-Tea. I could just imagine how they try to bring pleasure to whoever wants to indulge in such dark chocolate bliss.
Oreo Chocolate looks like something that my daughter would love. Not my cup of tea though.
I was pleasantly surprise when I learned that Caffe La Tea actually serves most rice meals for under P100 with good helping.
N.Y. Cheesecake Boohberry
Cabsy Longganisa Rice - Cab from the word Cabanatuan.
Grilled Liempo & Salted Egg
My favourite Rice Toppings which I ordered is definitely Crispy Dinuguan all because I love dinuguan and lechon. This dish has both. A bowl is more than enough for me though. It can be shared by two people.
I also like their fried chicken which can be compared to a famous chicken house because there was no breading use but, the skin of the chicken was fried crisp yet, surprisingly it was not oily.
Appetizers and Pasta were serve one by one they came.
Crispy Dinuguan - Super Sulit
Crispy Baked Wings - Barbecue version
Among the pasta dishes I love Wild Mushroom & Truffle. I learned that this was one of the diners favourite as well.
Chili Bombs - Chili with bits of ham & cheese
By the way I did not have the chance to sample, Mozza Lava because it was gone in one heartbeat. I think with the response that it got it was that good.
Tasting Chiz Buco was a good surprise because I didn’t know that spring rolls can be this tasty. A good combination of cheesy flavour and buco strips.
Wild Mushroom & Truffle Oil - Love this Pasta
I don’t feel like going green tea
I choose Strawberries & Cream and I was right as always. This smoothie with the Popping Pearl just made my day. Imagine my surprise when it gently pop inside my mouth.
Chiz Buco - Tasty Spring Rolls with a Twist
Strawberries & Cream - Just the Right size for me
The rest of the beverages served do taste good as well.

The guard who wears civilian clothes open the door for me. He was ever attentive and was positioned near the door to assist diners.
The staff which includes the baristas were attentive to the needs of the diners. I notice the same thing when diners started pouring in. I was welcomed by Sir Jerro Santos who was our host for this event.
As we waited for the rest of the bloggers to arrive I was assisted by Sir Jerro and his staff. He informed us that we will be serve with 1 main dish, 1 dessert and 1 drink of our choice aside from the meals that they will serve for sharing.
With good service and friendly environment I was not surprise to learn that lots of diners frequent this place. This place offers in-house catering but since they just open up last October 2015, this place is not yet 1 year old and are still undergoing more improvements. In just a short period of time Caffe La Tea was able to capture the hearts of anyone who loves good food and company.
Just recently instead of concluding my take on the food that I am served with, I decided to list down the reasons what makes the restaurant that interesting and here they are in no particular order.
