Great little place. Quiet despite being on a busy road. Food was excellent; service was great too but portions are a little on the small side.

Thank AlexOAE
francesca104, Owner at Corner Tree Cafe, responded to this review

Thanks for the review! I'm glad you liked the food and service. And thanks for your comment on the portions. Was that a general feel or was it for certain dishes? hoping we can improve on this (although I generally find American portions way too much) but maybe we can improve on some of the dishes. Thanks again for that!... More

I can't remember if l have reviewed CTC prior so here goes: We had the dumplings and the lumpia, excellent!

Thanks a lot for taking the time to review CTC! Glad you liked the dishes! Tofu walnut burger ... I guess it is not for everyone. Some people love it, some don't so I guess that's a fair assessment. But glad you liked it overall!!! Thanks for coming! Chiqui More

Great vegetarian/vegan dishes I've had in a long time. The lasagna was quite salty for my taste and the chocolate cake was a bit dry but a great overall food experience! The best here is there kare-Kare, a must try for sure!

Hi there! Thanks for the review! Will check on the lasagna today. The chocolate cake... it is usually good and moist. Apologies for that! Glad you liked the experience anyway! Thanks again! More

If this place was within walking distance of where I was, I would have visited it every day of my trip. I did manage to go twice. It has a surprisingly extensive menu for a place like this that is very compact but has a nice vibe to it. Service comes with a smile. The quinoa salad and the Filipino... More

It is such a dilight to be able to enjoy delicious and healthy food while travelling! Especially in a country, where meat and fast food is so popular. Very original vegatarian and vegan options. Something different! Go and try it! The personal and the owner are very kind and engaged. The atmosphere is very pleasant. Thank you!

I was looking forward to eating here as the reviews were magnificent and the high prices did not bother me as long as the food was good.I found it easy enough with google maps on Jupiter street near the corner of Saturn walking distance from Makati Ave. On this busy street it is an oasis of calmness just looking at...

Hello, very very sorry about that! I asked if you wanted to move just because I thought it might be a bit uncomfortable for you 2 to be sitting next to each other after the rest of the customers left. I did mean to chat with you -- (and maybe you just wanted to be left in peace) ... I... More

Great food, ok service. Vegetarian but you will not miss the proteins. An Indian twist with international flavor. We brought some of the ingredients home to replicate the cooking. Not easy though....

This place is one of my favorite in Manila. Food is so good and their cakes are simply "one of a kind". The place has 50's chill and relaxing vibe. I definitely recommend this place not only for vegan/vegetarian lovers but for the entire family.

Corner Tree Cafe is a Vegetarian / Vegan Cafe. We serve food from Asia to Africa, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas in a cosy intimate setting. We also offer good wines, local beers and some house cocktails. You don't have to be a vegetarian to enjoy our delicious food. In fact most of our customers are omnivores, but vegetarians will feel right at home here (we also serve some gluten-free dishes). To add to our regular menu, we have weekly specials sometimes inspired by current events or international days. Booking is advisable. Children welcome.
