Hearty meals at Cafe Larisse

Sun.Star Davao - - FRONT PAGE -

Afew months ago, a new din­ing des­ti­na­tion, Cafe Larisse, opened along Mabini Street.

I found out about this small cafe when I passed by the area on my way to Lachi’s weeks ago. Cu­ri­ous, I looked it up on Face­book to check what they serve and the place it­self. The pho­tos of the place and the food caught my at­ten­tion as it seems like a pretty good cafe to have a meal at.

I vis­ited the cafe twice, once be­fore my Christ­mas va­ca­tion and the sec­ond was after my va­ca­tion, to see what they had to of­fer.

I find Cafe Larisse to be quite a charm­ing cafe in terms of in­te­rior. The chairs and ta­bles are ar­ranged to ac­com­mo­date groups, pairs, or solo din­ers. There is also a bar ta­ble at one side of the cafe and a sofa near the counter.

I also have to say that their com­fort room was re­ally clean dur­ing my two vis­its here.

I like the in­ti­mate am­biance of the place too. I find it to be re­lax­ing and a nice place to have some me-time. At the same time, I also think that it is also a great place to go at if you want to catch up with a friend or two.

Cafe Larisse has a very sim­ple menu of sal­ads, soups, sa­vory meals, and pasta with a price range of P135 to P195. What is great about them is they have set meals that are worth ev­ery sin­gle penny. Set meals are from P220 to P295.

For my first visit here, I or­dered the Sa­vory Set (P280), Gam­brero/Surf’s Up Pasta (P175), and Thai Milk Tea (P80). For the sa­vory set, I had the Vel­vety Mush­room Soup and the Wings and Lol­lies Sa­vory Meal.

For my sec­ond visit here, I or­dered the Souper Set (P295). For this set, I had the Souper Salad, Grilled Cheese Sand­wich, and Zesty Tomato Soup.

Cafe Larisse is a great place to dine at. I love how in­ti­mate it was and it would be a great place if you want to spend time alone or catch up with a friend or two.

De­spite hav­ing not too many op­tions on the menu, the food here is great over­all. I love the Zesty Tomato Soup and the Grilled Cheese Sand­wich the most.

I would rec­om­mend this place if you are look­ing for some­where nice to eat. I also see my­self drop­ping by here ev­ery once in a while.

Cafe Larisse is lo­cated at Don Pepito Bldg., Mabini St. Cor­ner V. Mapa St. and are open from 12:00 PM to 9:00 PM, Sun­day to Fri­day.
