What’s New with Cafe Egao?

Everytime I pass by Nasipit, Talamban and see the sign, Cafe Egao, it always brings a smile on my face 🙂 It was five years ago when I visited the cafe around 11 in the evening with my best friend / foodtrip buddy out of curiosity of this cute Japanese cafe. We tried their mushroom soup, Egaoyaki and Iced Coffee with cookies which we both liked. I can still remember the cheerful lady who entertained us the whole time making us feel at home in her sweet little nook.


Only recently, a friend invited me to Cafe Egao and noticed a lot of changes in the place. They now have a bar and restaurant which was opened last May 2017 and they added some delicious meals and drinks in the menu.

I’ve met Ms. Tess, the cheerful lady from my first visit and she still remained the sweetest and amiable person I’ve met five years ago.

True to her cafe that she managed, Cafe Egao means SMILE. She wants that what they’re offering in the cafe/bar & restaurant will make every guest smile and bring home a piece of that happiness wherever they go. Indeed, throughout my stay in the cafe has put me in my best mood. And that’s a rarity nowadays 🙂

So if you happen to swing by Talamban or you’re looking for something new, check CAFE EGAO and for sure you’ll be smiling all day 🙂
