FORGET ME NOT CAFE



Why hello dear Marikenyos and dear readers. I am back with a vengeance. :-)

I have been off the grid for several weeks following my hospitalization, but more on that on my pregnancy blog here. I thank God for keeping me and the baby safe and now, I look forward to making it up to you guys!

The cafe I'm featuring right now has been recommended to me several times so we went there on a date (yihee) one Saturday. It is along our very own "Maginhawa" street (Lilac) as mentioned by Andrea Paola on our Facebook page. Marikenyos and dear friends, I present to you FORGET ME NOT CAFE.

 The counter and the dessert bar. Of course we sat very close to the latter. Hehe!

 Comfy couches for a nice family / barkada dinner or snack

 Wall mounts

 Cute corner table

While we were waiting for our orders, they went around and had the customers try some lemon squares and peppermint chocolate squares. They were both good! Yum! I forgot to take some home though. (Will go back!)

 Lemon squares and peppermint chocolate squares

Free garlic bread toasts

And then our drinks were served:

 Pink Lemon Soda (75 PhP)

Cookies and Cream Milkshake (95 PhP) without whipped cream

Ready for the food? We sure are:

 Bacon and Cheese Croissant (75 PhP)

 Want some?

 Stuffed Chicken Breast with Rice (125 PhP)

 Chicken Tenders with Dip (125 PhP)

 For dessert, we had the Choco Lava Cake a la Mode, the price of which I forgot. Haha!

 Another freebie! Super yummy rice crispy ball. The mixture was yema-like. Yum!

For family dinners, dates, barkada hang outs, study sessions (yes, they have wi-fi too), Forget Me Not Cafe is one of the cafes you can go to. I am so happy that our city continues to grow with such interesting foodie places and like I said before, we need not go outside our city just to look for a good hang out place. I, for one, really hate the traffic everywhere, especially on weekends! :-D

 The fountain outside the cafe

 Covered outdoor seating (Do you know any of these guys? Tell them they're on my blog... hehe!

How the cafe exterior looks like :-)

  5. hi Myka, like mentioned by another reader (thanks!), you can take the SSS FX or jeep from Riverbanks. The jeep / fx will turn right on PureGold and then left to Rainbow Street.

    At one point, Rainbow street becomes one way so the jeep/fx will turn right and then left to SAPPHIRE street.

    At the end of Sapphire street, you can get off, that corner is Lilac. Walk towards your left (it's a bit of a long walk).

    If you see Burrito Brothers or Daddy Bertz Cafe.... you're going in the wrong direction! Go the other way. :-)

    Keep walking and take note of the house / establishment numbers. Forget Me Not Cafe is #41. Other landmarks? You can't get lost that easily. It's a stretch of foodie places too ;-) You will also see Crazy Katsu, Teaza, etc. And General's Pizzeria on the other side of the street too! :-) Enjoy!

    1. hi Vanvan! the best way I know is taking the jeep or FX from Ampid, baba ka ng Concepcion, then take the jeep or FX to SSS. Baba ka ng Bennt Building (along Lilac Street) then walk towards Chinabank. Tuloy tuloy lang ang lakad and you will see Forget Me Not Cafe. Nasa right side siya ng Lilac Street coming from Bennt Building. :-) enjoy!
