CNN Cafe, Boracay Island: 2 reviews and 4 photos

  CNN Cafe
by sirenna

The rather oddly named CNN Cafe is located just a few steps away from the Tourist Center on White Beach. Like many Boracay restaurants, it opens up onto the beach path, and has a nice view of the sea.
CNN has earned a very good reputation for itself since it's opening around a year ago, and the Swiss owner & chef Pascal prides himself on turning out top quality meals.
While waiting for your food, you can catch the international news on a the large, flat-screen TV on the wall (the volume is usually turned down, but there are subtitles).
The place is a little lacking in cosy ambiance - I usually go there for breakfasts and lunches with the girls as opposed to evening meals, but friends of mine have been very impressed with the dinner menu too.

Favorite Dish: I've been back several times for the delicious rostis. I like mine with bacon, onion, tomato and cheese - they come with an egg on top.
The mushroom and cheese omelette was also pretty good, though the toast was a bit dry.
I'm not a fan of hot drinks, but my friend was very impressed with the large pot of freshly brewed coffee she ordered with her breakfast.
