Something about this dish makes me wish I was in a cabin in Baguio right next to a fireplace—or else, having breakfast at a campsite with the sunlight streaming through needles of pine trees. It is comforting, filling, and invites beautiful reverie.

I have a suggestion though: the trio of pesto, sundried tomatoes (the taste of which I almost compare to anchovies), and cheese make this a tad salty. Bread would have been a welcome respite, but alas, Coffee Bean seems to think its price doesn’t merit a complimentary piece.

Service was friendly and helpful; however, the kitchen wasn’t only overwhelmed (orders took 20 minutes and much longer), but also less accommodating with requests: orders were no longer being accepted 30 minutes before closing time.
