Franz has a good location, good food and a really good cup of coffee! Big picture windows give you the opportunity to watch the comings and goings in the market or the harbor depending on which direction you sit. We had breakfast and the food was prepared well. Coffee was very good but pricy for the Philippines. Service was fair... More

Amazing food! When we asked the locals for a good place to eat, they just blurted out Franz Cafe (located at the back of the public market). Don't worry, no stink whatsoever. The waiters were not so accommodating, but the food I tell you makes up for it all. Budget is around P100-P200 per person, busog at satisfied ka na.

We had to stay an extra day in Palompon and we ended up having all of our meals here. The food is good but nothing special. It's also a little pricey so if you wanna save a little bit, get the budget meals.

Few choices in Palompon but Franz had WiFi and coffee. Food was limited but OK if you are really starving. That said, I lost weight in Palompon.

Good food with reasonable prices. Good television connection (with cable!). Good service. The restaurant is overlooking the pier so you can also watch the beautiful sunset from inside.

We go every year to Palompon and invariably we alway have a few meals at Franz Cafe. Situated on the waters edge by the market area, bus terminal and ferry port it is very convenient both for travellers and regulars. It is a place where we can meet with friends and have an enjoyable meal in a clean, air conditioned... More

There are many places to eat and drink in Palompon. My two favourite places to hang out and have a beer or two and maybe something to eat are Franz and Jay N Bee. They are both located close to each other, by the sea in the market area. Read my separate report about Jay N Bee.. You can sit... More
