I love this place for its friendly service and fantastic cakes and coffee. The outdoor seating and ambience are both superb!

The place was crowded when we arrived, not enough table for the 5 of us so we decided to order our food for take out. Our favorite was their signature Cookie Monster and Mom loved the red velvet cos' it was not too sweet.

I love their specialty chocolate cake! It's the reason we eat in Margie's! We also buy it for take out parties

Five star for me, Margie's has always been my favorite place. It is where I usually do my research and paper works. The ambiance, food and price are just few of the things I love about Margies. Wi-Fi is also big plus to Margie's. Try their Korean Pork Spare Ribs and Schezswan.

We were passing by butuan city for lunch and passed by this resto for the second time because it was jampacked for the first time. The food was reasonbly priced although the place is too small. You should come in early because people start coming in at around 1230. They have tables outside but it is too hot for lunch.... More

This place has always been in our itinerary when in Butuan. Can't leave Butuan without eating at Margie's. The place is really cute with all the DIY stuff and the signatures on the wall of people who visited the place. Must try are their desserts; cupcakes and cakes of different choices--chocolate, sansrival etc..the rice menus are also yummy. Must try... More

We always have guests in our region and we always bring them to Margie's as one of our food destinations. We go here for their salads and pasta... they have also a wide selection of dishes esp Asian cuisine. My favorites are their chef salad, pomodoro pasta, pandan chicken with bagoong rice, caldereta, sizzling bulalo. Coffee is also best here.... More

There are some hits and misses but you should give this small but charming restaurant a try as it does provide a variety of choices. Salisbury burger steak is ok, Szechuan Pork Ribs is not spicy, Pandan Chicken with Thai Bagoong Rice was good, I didn't like the Aligue Pasta, Cheesy Lasagna was nothing special and while the mango shake...

If you visit Butuan city, dont forget to stop by at Margie's Kitchen. Their cake is good and good cafe classic design. i visited this cafe for relaxing and enjoying the cake only so cannot comment on another food. Tried the mocha cake and cheese cake (forgot the name) and it's really delicious.
