Itoy’s Coffee Haus has become the local and returning tourists’ go-to cafe. When you taste its coffee, you’ll know why this coffee shop located along the city’s busiest stretch has stood the test of time. Add to Itoy’s classic feel is its vintage-inspired interior that evokes nostalgia, especially among its longtime patrons who regularly frequent it for their coffee and freshly-baked pastry fix. Also, a must-eat here is its hearty bulalo (beef shank, bone marrow, and vegetable stew) that’s touted as the best in the city. You can also try its equally palatable sizzling bulalo variation, lavished with creamy mushroom soup.

How to get there: From any point in the city, ride a Rizal Avenue-bound multicab or charter a tricycle to get to Itoy’s.

Isla Casoy de Palawan Coffee Shop stands out for its coffee, coolers, and cakes mixed with cashew nuts, one of Palawan’s well-loved delicacies.
