It’s not all about the coffee.
While unique meals have their place, there is value to simply prepared and homegrown dishes. At Herald Suites Café Mondo, Coca Café and Aurora Lobby Café, flavors come straight from the food source rather than multiple sauces and concoctions. Nothing is overcomplicated. And while the Herald Suites cafes carry their own individual selections and culinary specialties, classics like pastas, steaks and desserts like chocolate decadence cake, blueberry cheesecake as well as various coffee blends are available in all of them.
Coca Café in Herald Suites (Chino Roces Ave.) has a menu that includes comfort food like Crispy Pork Belly and Sinigang na Salmon; dishes we all reach out for when we want to taste home. Predictable? Maybe, but that is precisely what Coca Café is known for: food that satisfies our bellies while leaving us soothed and comforted. Tried, tested and good!
Café Mondo in Herald Suites Solana on (Finlandia St.) is known for its Seafood Pasta and Bone-In Rib Eye Steak. The Seafood Pasta is a dish of fresh fettuccine pasta in a tomato concassse base with shrimps, squid, mussels and fish tossed in olive and annatto oil; be warned this dish is deliciously addictive and many regulars have made it their favorite. The Rib Eye Steak is marbled with bits of fat giving it flavor and the tenderness meat lovers look for.
Aurora Café in Herald Suites Polaris (Polaris St.) takes pride in its handmade pastas and signature pizzas. Although Italian dishes are not new, homemade fresh dough pasta is often bypassed for easier to prepare commercially made dry pasta. Order the Mushroom Truffle Cream and Seafood Marinara Pastas.
Try the Aurora Café style of pizzas and taste the difference between doughy and thin, old and new. Aurora’s Lavash Pizza is made with the freshest ingredients slathered on made-in-the- premises flatbread.
There’s a common denominator for these Herald Suites cafes, they all offer something for everyone: delicious, uncomplicated food, friendly service, and casual yet elegant interiors in unique neighborhoods. All Herald Suites Cafes are open for breakfast and all day dining.
