My best friend Sam and I went to visit one of the most promising cafe/restaurant in Cebu. It is the beautiful and dainty eating destination located at Oakridge Business Park, the 10 Dove Street cafe/dessert restaurant.The establishment's existence isn't new to me, but it was only this summer when I had the perfect chance to visit the place. Fact: they named the restaurant from the street where it was originally located before. 10 Dove Street is a street located somewhere in Banilad. It wasn't long since they transfer to another location.
Sam and I went there twice for her 21st birthday's photo shoot. My friend wanted some place private and romantic looking and I just know 10 Dove Street is the perfect place so I immediately recommended her the place.
Here are some of the shots I took around the place, including some of my thoughts about the food we've ordered. As you can see, the place has a romantic vibe going on. It's clean and simply beautiful. The whole place actually reminds me of Simply J's because they both gave me the same impression. The place, I must say is perfect for an intimate eating experience like a Valentines date.
In that case, their friendly staffs will help you find the most comfortable table.
We were handed a very cute menu for us to place our orders. While waiting for our orders, we were given a saucer of bread sticks and a very cute bird cage (the pink thing in the photo) which is actually a bell for us to press if ever we want to add more. So cool!!! And I actually fooled around pressing it just to see if it really works. I don't think it did though because nobody came to ask us about our orders after I pressed it. Lol Sam was like 'Tin Noooo!!!!--' hahahaha
We did have fun taking photos all over the place while waiting for our orders to come, but man, we waited for almost an hour! I started to get so pissed about it because I had to go to work after. It's just so annoying and it's probably the longest time that I waited for a food order to come. Gutom na mga alaga ko sa tiyan lol
Sam and I both decided to order The 10 Dove Street Experience which costs 275.00 pesos. It includes a soup, a salad, and a dessert of your choice. I was surprised and amazed by how cheap it is considering the size of the order. I chose the following as my order:
I felt like I paid 85.00php for a cake frosting. I was a bit disappointed with their good looking cakes because I had very high expectations about how it would taste. But it doesn't really tasted that bad, it tasted 'okay'. The avocado topping btw is so bitter. Bitter than my heart chos! Seriously, it's so bitter that I had to eat candies just to get rid of its bitterness in my mouth.
Sam ordered this but we forgot to take note of its name. It's just a regular wheat bread and butter with a macaroni that doesn't smell appetizing.My friend didn't even finish her order because it's just a plain "meh".
10 Dove Street is a good place if you want some desserts and something light to eat. The place is beautiful and you can always have your own privacy in its location. If you are really hungry, it's not the best place for you. I do not know exactly why but it always took them so long to serve their foods even if the place isn't really crowded when we went there. It's one thing that I do not like about the place.
Talking about their staff and services, everybody were polite and very accommodating. They will really cater to your needs, which is something that I really like about them.
