Circa 1900 became a constant within the food scene in Cebu. At one point, it felt like everybody has been but me. Stars aligned and I got an invite to try their newest offering, daily breakfast for everyone! Yes, you read that right, this picturesque venue of olden and golden days is opening their doors to welcome you from 7:30 to 10 in the morning for your first meal of the day.
Casa Uno and Dos
While everyone’s asleep, you could be prancing around the compound, taking photos of these two well-preserved heritage. Surrounded by greens and a few blossoms, you’ll surely take yourself back to simpler times in these typical Filipino ancentral homes turned restaurants.
Egg-citing times were had as eggs were served aplenty, along with typical Filipino breakfast combinations and some unique ones. I woke up that day without knowing Crocodile Tocino and Ostrich Tapa existed, let alone that I’d be eating them that morning. However, I’m glad I did as they were definitely unique, rare in the city (good for those who wants to have foodventures) and surprisingly delectable.
For our friends who have allergies or who are taking a break from preservatives, they offer organic eggs cooked to your liking. As with most eggs offered, you may have them poached, scrambled, fried or boiled. These eggs are directly sourced from our local Cebuano farmers and made sure the chickens weren’t fed or injected by ‘enhancers‘. Though expensive, it’s a good treat to your body whilst indirectly giving support to local farmers, as well.
I rarely eat breakfast but I love fruits, so I was keen on trying their selection of tropical ones which you can smother with honey or strawberry citrus dip. This way you can finish your savory meal with a sweet mango or juicy watermelon, plus some fresh mango juice if you’re not already having coffee.
If you’re constantly on the grind and needs a break from the city without actually driving away from it, then Circa 1900 is the place to be and breakfast is the time to visit. Have the peace and calm while you eat your heart away, and then, maybe have a quick dip at their pool after.
