SAVOUR: Sunnies Cafe

by - 21 August


The wait is finally over! Sunnies Co. has officially opened their first cafe restaurant - Sunnies Cafe. The cafe has been the talk of the town since the sunglasses company first announced their new project. There were plenty of hype online and of course, a lot of it were from the lovely Georgina and the amazing team.





Things you need to know
  • Opening Hours: 11:30am-3pm, 6pm-11pm (Mon-Fri); 11:30am-12am (Sat-Sun) 
  • Address: Lane P, Bonifacio High Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City
  • Price for two: PHP 850 and up

My boyfriend and I have visited Sunnies Cafe twice already. Our first visit was for dinner and the latter was for breakfast. Unfortunately, we did not know that they open at 11:30am because their Zomato page is not reliable. It says the resto opens at 7am during weekends but the truth is it opens at 11:30am! We arrived there at around 8:30am and waited for 3 hours! Good thing, there are a lot of Poke-stops there *sigh*. 

The place

As expected from Sunnies, the place is incredibly "cool" and stylish. Sunnies has definitely put their brand's personality to their interiors with mixing retro and modern-styled furniture. Using what they're known for, Sunnies covered the cafe with the pastel posters and minimalist decor which made the whole place incredibly instagram-worthy.



In the morning, the place is well-lit by sunshine and indoor lamps. At night, candles are lit that serve as the main lighting and also bring a romantic yet chill ambiance.





Customers may be seated on the couch, or the high tables. I suggest to take the high tables because they offer more privacy and you can get a nice view of the whole place. There is a small lounge at the second story of the restaurant full of magazines and sofa chairs. However, it is not yet open for customers. 
  
The service

The crew were warm and professional. Within 15 minutes from opening, the place was jam-packed, and they managed to place everyone to seats and offered beverages to them as soon as they're comfortable. However, the waiting time for the food is too long. Being one of the first customers to arrive, our order was not really taken care of. We waited for 45 minutes for our order, while other customers are getting their order one by one.  


Um... Where's our food?
The food


Brunch Platter
All-Day Brunch: Brunch Platter
The bacon is superb. Actually, when I ordered this, I was expecting bacon strips LOL but this surprised me and it was a good kind of surprise. :) The taters are crispy but also tender inside. This is definitely the highlight of my visit.  


Roasted Bone Marrow Rice Bowl
Main Course: Roasted Bone Marrow Rice Bowl
As the main course, this should be the highlight of the menu. However, the rice bowl is extremely disappointing. The meal is described to be a bone marrow omelette but in reality the bone marrow is just placed on top and it does not go well with everything.  

Candlelight dinner
Small plate: Skinny Fries
Perfect for appetizer. Reminds me of Piknik potato fries. Plus, the sriracha aioli dip is amazing!

Main Course: Camarones al Ajillo
Amount of food is plenty, however, there was nothing special. 

Main Course: Crunchy Herb Fish Fillet
The fish fillet was indeed crunchy, but the highlight of the meal was the crab fat fried rice.

Milkshake: Salted Caramelsutra
I was actually looking forward to this but I ended up liking the Kimye better.

Milkshake: Kimye
Oreo flavored milkshake - need I explain more?



I love Sunnies as a company, but they have to step up their game if they want to stay in the food business and maintain their great reputation to their loyal fans. 

Summary
Pocket-Friendly ♥♥♥♥
Quality & Taste ♥♥♥
Service ♥♥
Instagrammable    ♥♥♥♥♥

  13. Thank you for such an honest review! I find it strange that an optical company is venturing into food business, the two don't go together at all. And true enough, seems like they really need to up their quality.

    1. Yes, it's quite a stretch! They have good intentions though, they just have to improve their execution. Thank you, Shireen! :)

  14. Sunnies is definitely super retro and so cool! Love the aesthetics, which really does make it reminiscent of optic wear for some reason. Weird that they want to open a restaurant hahaha <3

  18. I think also that the waiting time is too long although this cafe looks very nice and I like the interior. Personally I have to admit that I become often impatient when I have to wait too long :)

  19. Even though the interior and the food look good, that 45 minutes waiting time would really put me down, that's more than acceptable!

  23. Is it worth the money? I mean the food? The food looks bland and simple :( Sunnies has been the talk for months now. I think they'll be opening a branch in Megamall anytime soon. Anyway, thanks for sharing your experience :)
