We already featured Tagum City in our recent article, highlighting the best places and the fun things to do while you’re in downtown. But more than just strolling the parks and trying the exotic street foods, you can also go café hopping and explore the hidden yumminess of Tagum City and its bistros.
Cafes in Tagum City have their own plots and gimmicks, making each of them unique from each other. And because Tagum is just a small town, some of the cafes are just a walk away from each other.
Get ready to shell out some money and visit these cafes (or at least one of them). And oh, you might want to have an empty stomach when visiting these cafes because they just can’t resist from offering you a bunch of good food.
Sabroso Café Bistro
A house-cum-bistro, Sabroso Café is one of the favorite cafes in Tagum because of several reasons: first, it’s a place for social media detoxification. Nay, there is no Wi-Fi connection because they promote real conversation with your friends. Besides, they have a lot of books and board games to keep you busy and entertained while waiting for your food. And that’s the second reason, by the way. The third reason to love this café is there cozy and very homely ambiance, the relatable quotes pressed in the walls, the figurines (mostly about Paris), and lastly, their crews and servers that will accommodate your needs from the moment you enter the café until your last pace to exit.
They also got a bunch of delicious food that are Instagrammable. The well-plated snacks are just really picture-worthy. The place is quite small (even though it was already expanded) and getting into this place might somewhat be a concern because their signage is small and is covered by branches of trees (I hope they got it fixed).
Burgers and fries are mostly enjoyed in this bistro. Their pasta is also worth every peso. And their bestselling beverage is the monster shakes available in a variety of flavors. Overall, this place is perfect for reconnecting with friends and enjoying time for yourself.
