In 2012, Lantaw Floating Restaurant convinced locals and tourists that Cordova is a place worthy to stop-over. About 2 weeks ago, 10,000 Roses Cafe opened its doors just across the floating restaurant and became an overnight hit, making it Cebu’s newest attraction, and reminded us that Cordova is still a praiseworthy destination for everyone to swing by.
10,000 Roses Cafe brings to Cebu the magic that’s pretty identical to Dongdaemun Plaza’s more than 25,000 LED Roses in South Korea. 10,000 Roses Cafe is situated on a reclaimed wharf property and boasts a good view of Cebu City skyline. About 20-25 customers at a time can be accommodated inside the modest noshery, and another 40-60 on the al-fresco area.
The Best Time to Visit 10,000 Roses Cafe?
Recommended time to visit: 4PM to 6:30PM/7:00PM
The sunset in Day-as Cordova is very dramatic, and 10,000 Roses Cafe is the perfect place to witness it.
I would recommend that you arrive by 4PM before traffic builds up in Day-as, as people would flock the area during dinner time. Getting there before the rush hour will give you time to secure a good spot in viewing the sun set.
Then when the night unfolds, the roses light up! <3
Sunset at 10,000 Roses Cafe
The photos below and are taken today, 20 February 2017. It was a bit gloomy during the afternoon, but gladly the sun decided to show up and gave a warm, dramatic sunset show. Can’t wait to see it during summer.

Okay, how about the food and drinks?
Varieties and Prices. 10,000 Roses Cafe serves beverages including varieties of coffee, teas and beers, and food items like salad, pasta, sandwich and pizza. The coffee & tea price range per serving is from PhP110 to PhP180, beer at PhP70 and bottled water at PhP50.
The food items are at PhP250 to PhP450. Personally, I find the food items a bit pricey. I ordered a Margareta Pizza at P350, which looked like it measures only about 8-inch, sliced into 6. Yup, it’s pretty small. The good amount of mozzarella kinda’ made up for its tiny size though.
For our drinks, we had the Cafe Americano (single shot) for P110, and Iced Double Espresso Shot Caramel Latte for P145. The beverages we had were a bit bland, and lacked the body we expect from a good coffee. Well, the cafe is still on its soft opening, so we can give ’em a little slack for the mean time. The team will be back soon and try the other offerings.
