A nice stop by the highway from Davao. I just wanted to have some coffee. It took so long, unbelievable. The prices are OK, the staff was friendly, the toilets clean. But the service speed. I liked to look around, it's a good thing with all the water. Nice for the eyes, a break from driving.

It is good to have a breakfast/lunch here when traveling to Davao. A spot surrounded with waters with fishes in it. Though, the waters are sort of a fishpond. Better to have breakfast here as you may see the rising sun besides the restaurant. Yes, the service and food is better than the average. Yet still the place needs more... More

Before eating, it is nice to enjoy first the clean air, nice riverside view and soothing feeling of indigenous materials used in the interiors of the restaurant.
