Carmina's Review on Second Branch of Sundays Cafe and Restaurant in Maginhawa, Quezon City

We have friends who love to eat out and have no clue where there are places to dine.  No problem with based on my experience we can refer them to places that are reasonable prices. Carmina had tried Sundays Cafe in the branch located in Marikina. I was informed by the server they will be opening their second location sometime this year. Few days ago, Mom Violy, Carmina and some friends came with us to see the new branch of Sundays Cafe and Restaurant in Maginhawa, Quezon City. There is parking in front of the restaurant.  We walked in and noticed a sign saying it was a soft opening. The place was full yet they we're able to accompany us to our table on the ground floor.

Mom Violy and Carmina's Favorite Gold Choice White Coffee Durian made in Malaysia

Every time Carmina would travel to her hometown in California she prefer having some instant coffee to drink for her breakfast. Carmina decided to try something new for a change where she had made her purchase at the Uni Mart in Greenhills Shopping Mall. Our first breakfast in my sister's home Mom Violy and Carmina had a cup of Gold Choice White Coffee Durian flavor. At first Mom Violy was complaining about the smell of durian once she sipped her coffee she liked it a lot. Too bad Carmina only brought one pack only having 15 sticks inside.  Carmina also liked the taste and couldn't wait to return back to the Philippines and purchase some more. Gold Choice White Coffee Durian Flavor sells for PHP 236.25 ($4.22) made in Malaysia. Mom Violy and Carmina can reunite with our favorite durian coffee. 😋 NOTE: Carmina is not selling or advertising for Gold Choice White Coffee Durian Flavor made in Malaysia.
