Breakfast at Rustic Mornings

Nothing’s better than eating the most important meal of the day at home, on a Sunday but we didn’t know we could also do this outside the comforts of our house. Yes, Rustic Mornings, a peaceful haven hidden in an alley in Marikina, serves delicious breakfast in a homey ambiance.

After hearing mass at Antipolo Cathedral for father-in-law’s birthday, we decided to try this restaurant mother- in-law said she had seen being featured on television. Rustic Mornings is a restaurant owned by self-taught chef Portia Dee-Baluyut who, together with her mom, converted part of their large garden to a cozy, outdoor restaurant. This rustic themed place has tiles, wooden chairs, bottles, paintings, white curtains and Capiz shells as designs. It gives the place a nice romantic vibe. The restaurant offers all day breakfasts which will truly satisfy your taste buds.

Because breakfast is the most important meal of the day (and we were really hungry), I ordered:


Corned beef with scrambled eggs, garlic parslied rice and tomato wansoy salad. Corned beef was great, a bit spicy. The scrambled eggs are fluffy, and I like the rice.



Husband ordered: Frankfurter, cheese omelet and garlic rice; Chocolate chip frappe for his drinks. Hubby says the frankfurter is his favorite.

After eating, we stayed to enjoy the refreshing environment for a few minutes, snapped a few pictures then went home.


Stones, clay pots and bottles decorate a corner of the garden


orchids, capiz shells and lanters hang from the ceiling


pots, old bottles and paintings add to the homey feel

All in all, this restaurant is a must try! It surely capped off our gastronomic adventure for the weekend.
