11 May Where to Have a Good Breakfast in Cagayan de Oro
Are you the type who wakes up running with feet on the ground so you need to eat breakfast outside the home? Or are you the travelling entrepreneur always on the go and always seeking out those fast breakfast places? Perhaps you’re just tired of the same-old, same-old food at home so you’re looking for something different before going to work in the morning?
With Cagayan de Oro being a fast growing metropolis in the country, places serving good and fast breakfasts on the go will never be left behind. Here are some of the good places you can eat heartily in the morning to give you that much needed kick for energy.
Missy Bon Bon
If you’re the bread or sandwich type in the morning, Missy Bon Bon’s breads have sweet varieties like the blueberry cream cheese, chocolate almond, and mocha sandwich. Their breads also have meaty varieties like chicken adobo, German franks, ham and egg, and fish curry bun. For sandwiches, their best seller is their Full House, but others like Miss B’s Roast Beef, Missy Cheesy Burger, and the Top Dog Roll. If you like salad for breakfast, the freshly made healthy salads such as the Chicken Caesar salad, the Ham Waldorf salad, Kani Mango salad, and Missy Chef salad have always delighted the taste buds of those who only want to eat green and healthy.
They have “All Day Breakfast Meals” like the Eggs Benedict (meal invented by Benedict Arnold, the American traitor), Fish n’ Chips (meal invented by the British), Missy Fish Teriyaki, Power Omelet, Shrimp Scampi, Steak Breakfast, Filipino breakfast, and American breakfast. According to Trip Advisor Philippines, Missy Bon Bon has been selected as one of only four restaurants in Cagayan de Oro City for its Certificate of Excellence. This excellence certificate is only given to restaurants that meet their excellence standards based on traveler and customer reviews. They are located near the main entrance of the Limketkai Center Mall.
This is another locally owned and conceptualized Asian-Fusion cuisine restaurant that opened at the corner of Pabayo and T. Chaves Streets. This neighborhood Parisian-industrial-minimalist concept diner has become popular with their deliciously unique menu lineup. Lately, they have added their new breakfast fares.
Their breakfast bestseller is the Chino’s Breakfast that consists of smoked chorizo, beef tapa, tomato salad, vegetable rice, and double fried eggs. Their other breakfast fares are also delicious and very filling to jumpstart that busy day or lazy weekend.
Not many know that this locally owned and grown Cagayanon restaurant and coffee shop actually made it to the Philippines’ Top 10 Promising Restaurants in 2010. Today, the place is still known for their delicious dishes, meal combinations, buffets, and they do make their share of whopping and killer coffee combinations. In fact, the place actually gets filled in the morning with students and professionals savoring their different breakfast meals. They’re one of the few places that serve free refillable coffee for breakfast. They are located at the corner of Don Apolinar Velez and Toribio Chavez Streets.
This is a small mom-and-pop-neighborhood-diner nestled between buildings along Corrales Avenue in front of the Xavier University gymnasium. It’s a favorite actually for students and professionals from the nearby offices and banks.
They’ve been around since 2012 because not only do they serve really large meal servings, you can order their really tasty breakfast meals any time of the day. Just leave your belt outside as their door sign suggests.
If you’re the type that goes for a coffee and doughnut breakfast (even if you’re not a cop), the best doughnuts and the best coffee is at Krispy Kreme and they’ve been around since 1937 to prove it. Many coffee lovers swear that Krispy Kreme coffees have a far superior taste than Starbucks, and their doughnuts are just “to die for.”
The first franchise opened in CDO is at Limketkai Center while the second one is at Ayala Centrio Mall.
A breakfast place like McDo has to be mentioned since they serve their breakfast meals only until 11:00 a.m. They have a variety of garlic rice, pancake, and other varieties that include sausages, scrambled eggs, and other fillings for the pancakes.
They are also the only breakfast place in the city that serves really good hash browns. For all meals you get a choice of coffee, juice, or soda drink. Many swear that the McDonald’s brewed coffee is really tasty.
Since the American Mac was mentioned, we can’t ignore the all-Filipino Jollibee breakfast meals. Like their American counterpart, the really fast and tasty breakfast meals from “the bee” is served only until 11:00 a.m.
You have choices from their garlic rice meals, pancakes, or “pandesal meals.” All meals come with a choice of coffee, juice, or soda drink.
Slers Ham and Café
Surprisingly, few Cagayanons realize that Slers Café at the corner of Don A. Velez and Del Pilar Streets, another at the ground floor of the Gaisano City Mall, and one at the corner of Don A. Velez and Yacapin Streets.
They offer really delicious sandwiches, pandesal jamon combinations, and some of the best all-day breakfast meals and coffee selections in town.
The sandwiches are mostly filled with Slers’ flagship ham slices that they have been known for. The meals are all paired with meat products that Slers has been famous for.
If you happen to be at the Ayala Centrio Mall in the morning and you’re sort of tired of all those fast food breakfasts, why not try this restaurant’s newest lineup of all-day breakfast meals made especially for the Filipino palate.
Since this place is more famous for its burgers and nacho meals, the breakfast meals haven’t really picked up yet in the city, but they’re very delicious, and you have a choice to pair them with coffee or their very famous tall tea drink.
Of course, you might have your own choice of a fast food place or restaurant that serves breakfast meals that we haven’t mentioned here, but do feel free to try out the above-mentioned if you haven’t yet. Have a hearty breakfast.
