This culinary institution has stood the test of time

To last your first year or two in the restaurant industry is a feat in itself. To celebrate 30 years is definitely something to shout about. This September, Café Laguna raises a glass to a milestone anniversary.

What began out of an apartment building in Lahug, Cebu City, as a simple set-up serving classics like puto bumbong and lumpiang sariwa, prepared by founder Julita Urbina blossomed and worked its way into the hearts of many hungry diners who became loyal patrons.

What remains the very core of the brand's DNA over all these fruitful years is family tradition and a passion for food. Whether you are dining in to commemorate a special occasion, eat alone, go on a date, or reunite with friends, Café Laguna has been there to happily serve up a soulful meal. With each dish, Cafe Laguna proudly displays Filipino cuisine in all its glory.

Through the pandemic’s ups and downs, the team has innovated, adapted and brought these comforting flavours out of the restaurant and into our homes. Whether dining in or taking your favourites home, rest assured that each meal is prepared with the same love.
