Who doesn’t love a big, hearty breakfast? Getting enough nutrients from the most important meal of the day will give you the right metabolism and energy to kickstart your tasks. Aside from planning my activities and a large cup of coffee, I find it essential to start my day right with a nutritious plate of my breakfast favorites. Bacon and eggs. A slice of bread with cheese dip.
But, how about a breakfast buffet haven filled with all the delectable (plus, healthy!) choices? I tell you, nothing does this kind of spread better than Cebu City Marriott Hotel’s Garden Café. The Marriot Hotel Cebu Breakfast Buffet will make you feel like starting your mornings always right.

Cereals and Oats Station
Mix up some granola, muesli, cornflakes, and all kinds of grains that you prefer, then throw down any milk (fresh milk, skim milk, chocolate milk, or soya milk) of your choice, and voila – a simple yet nutritious-packed cereal meal! They have a wide variety to choose from, and you wouldn’t just run out of creative ways on how to mix them up!
Fresh Fruit Juices, Milks, and Yoghurts
At the Marriot Garden Café Cebu, everything is fresh and worth savoring. They have a fantastic range of delicious drinks to quench your thirst, or a hot beverage to pair with your croissant. I had their hot cocoa first, then followed by a glass of fresh milk.
A beautiful blend of fresh fruit juices in a variety of flavors are available, too. Yogurts come in strawberry, plain, or blueberry flavors. You can easily request their servers for anything that you feel like having, and they’ll give their best to serve what’s available.
Cold Cuts and Cheese
To pair up with their freshly-baked loaves of bread, they have a couple of thin, flat slices of cold cuts and cheese as well.
Homemade Dimsum & Noodle Station
It’s not exactly a breakfast staple, but who could ever resist some dim sum? You can toss in some pork spare ribs with your rice, and of course, siomai! There is also quite a selection in their Noodles station, if you feel like having something steaming hot.
I had a taste of their curry which was specially made by one of their chefs! As usual, if you’re feeling unsure on how to do the mix, you can always ask their kitchen associates to do it for you. My friend Nico asked how spicy I’d like my curry, and I said the spiciest they could get me! I never had regret and delight rolled into one all of my life. Regret, because I thought my hyperacidity wouldn’t act up – but nonetheless it was delightful because the curry was a. frickin’. bomb.
Filipino Comfort Foods
The Marriott Cebu Breakfast Buffet was so on point with their selections of Filipino food staples. Every day, I see these foods laid on our table during breakfast, and that’s why this one just hits close to home. They have the tocino, soft boiled eggs, chicken sausage, danggit, chorizo, and bacon. It’s no wonder how it’s so easy to fill yourself up with these!
Marriott’s Service with Dedication
Perhaps, what made our meal even more enjoyable and satisfying is how their staff clearly established the line between merely handing out our orders and serving with superb dedication. And no, I’m not paid to say this.

I wish all restaurants, regardless of status and ratings, would learn from Marriott. Everyone there – the servers, chefs, receptionists, and even the guards – are naturally attentive to every person sitting on the tables. That’s the kind of service that reels customers back again.
