My friends and I went to Rustic Mornings by Isabelo a few weeks ago. Thanks iMom for the treat!!!

Rustic Mornings

Here is an article published about the place:

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”
“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.” – A.A. Milne


Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day. Having healthy breakfasts has shown that metabolism is primed for fat-burning throughout the say and starting your day with the right kind of food does not just give one the energy to face the tasks lined up for the rest of the day but it does well to feel good with good food first thing in the morning.

One such restaurant that prides itself in its home-y ambience, rustic and artistic style setting and décor in a garden setting with a one-with-nature outdoor café is Rustic Mornings by Isabelo or Isabelo Gardens in Marikina.

Chicken Charlie Cheesesticks Dynamite

January 15th, 2013

  We trooped to the newly-opened Chicken Charlie branch along Congressional Avenue. We love the soy-garlic fried chicken though of course, since the children are used to having big servings of fried chicken, they were surprised to see the small serving portions. Will review the chicken in another post [ ... ]
