Mayad Cafe ~ Palawan's Goodness in a Cup

Good old times are cherished best with a cup of coffee at hand. Hanging out in a cozy place which feels like home.

Welcome to Puerto Princesa's Mayad Café!

Mayad pronounced as mã-yàd is a Cuyunon (a native Palawan dialect) word  which means good and pleasant.

 
The interior is dainty and elegantly decorated.


I highly recommend a late night visit to cap your day
with Palawan coffee at hand...
 
My yummy cheese cake :P
And another devilishly "mayad" moist chocolate cake (made me say bye-bye to my diet).  
When on vacation you may as well forget about dieting!


 Tips:
  • Choose seats upstairs with a view. I personally find it more appealing.
  • Call in advance and inquire about their acoustic nights. Best if you can time your visit to one.
  • Order one of their creamy desserts to go with your coffee, truly "masabor" (that is Cuyonon for  delicious).
  • Mayad also offer all day breakfast, we had take out and they were exceptionally good (too bad I forgot to take pictures).


After spending hours communing with nature ~  chill, relax and do some people sighting at Mayad Café. 



Mayad Cafe is open daily from 11am to 11pm.
It is located at
Freedom Park Ground City Coliseum,
San Pedro Puerto Princesa.

(If taking a tricycle, please ask to be taken to the City Coliseum you will find Mayad Cafe easy).

    1. I know right. The hotel we stayed in has gym facilities I tried to burn a few calories to break even from all the sweets I ate... but it was hopeless!

    1. The chocolate cake was hands down one of the best I have had. It was perfect with Mayad's coffee.

  11. We were supposed to go to Puerto Princesa for our 1st year anniversary but I was due to give birth soon. Sayang, sana matuloy na this year so we can try this cafe. :)

  12. I remember I've seen Mayad Cafe as one of the choices of where-to-eat in PP. I was part of the planning team kasi for our company's outing last year and isa ang PP sa choices kaya naghanap din kami ng places to eat. Mukha ngang relaxing itong Mayad Cafe - sayang di kami natuloy sa PP. We could've visited this after a day of team building!

  19. The place is interesting- I wonder how was the Palawan coffee brew differs from other local varieties? I am a heavy coffee drinker so I just wonder. (Macy)

  20. Because we stayed in an island resort during our family vacation in Puerto Princesa a few years ago, we didn't get to tour the city. That's something we will do next time, and hopefully, we get to drop by Mayad Cafe, too.

  24. I wish to be able to see Palawan soon with my kids. It's very helpful for you to feature cafes from these places.

  25. Chocolate cake!!! That's making me drool now! :) I haven't heard of this cafe. When we were in Palawan (years ago), we dined in the usual Filipino restaurants and did not try smaller cafes.
