It's my first time to visit Cebu City, the queen city of the south. My officemates and I stayed in Cebu Pensione Plaza. Beside the pension house is the Espresso Ebay Cafe where we ate breakfast. Breakfast meals are affordable and freshly cooked. I loved the Hungarian sausage, I don't have any idea on what style of cooking they did on it, it was crispy outside but tender and juicy when I bit it.

My morning was in perfect harmony with hot, rich, steaming, brewed, coffee. Breakfast at Espresso Ebay Cafe is free of charge if you'll stay on the pension house. Breakfast rate ranges from PhP 80-100.
Jim had "tapsilog" (beef tapa, fried rice, and sunny side up egg). A Filipino favorite breakfast. This one has nothing special, boring. I thought, it would be better if they have put some spices on it to create a brand of their own of this famous breakfast.

They also serve different blended coffee beverages. Cold or iced coffee topped with whipped cream are the the top sellers.
Jen chose another Filipino favorite breakfast, Longganisang Lucban. A sausage native to Quezon Province, originated in the Municipality of Lucban. Nice, you can have a taste of Luzon in the Visayan region.
I liked the coffee table where we dine in. I dream of having my own set of dinning table like the one above. Oh, not to forget the hot chocolate taste, creamy and chocolatey, a good way to start a sweet morning.
Original breakfast menu from the cafe is the homemade Bangus flakes in oil. Tastes so good and very flavorful. Ingredients and the way it was cooked is the cafe's best kept secret.
Outside the cafe is a small area selling siomai. Jelaine bought some and shared it with us. You might think it is odd to be eaten for breakfast. Thats what I thought too but I was not in the possession to say no to the savory siomai. Siomai is one of my favorite food. Though I'm full, I just cant resist.
