You feel the warmth of a country-style home when you enter Mom & Tina's Bakery Cafe located just across SM Hypermart along C5. Their interior design reminds one of family gatherings on sunny days and lazy afternoons, savoring home-cooked meals of which the recipes have been handed down from generation to generation. Ahh, comfort food. That's what Mom and Tina's Bakery Cafe has exactly to offer.
Manager Mia Torres-Cachola explains that their restaurant has preserved the recipes that their family has grown up with. Cooking and baking are very much a passion of the Torres family, and putting up a bakery cafe was just a natural thing for them to do. Mom and Tina's is named after Mama Belen, their grandmother, and her daughter Tina Torres-Santos, women of their family who have the gift of cooking and baking delicious home-grown recipes that have now become customer favorites.
My family has been a loyal customer of Mom and Tina's for several years now and I was delighted to hear that they have expanded their cafe last March so it's now bigger and better, having a wider range of meals and desserts to choose from. Another good thing about the move is that they now have plush sofas, aside from the country-style wooden tables and chairs. Now, people can hang out for some coffee and dessert, lounging with friends, or simply while away time with a cup of java and a good book.
Assorted cupcakes (from P13 to P28 each)

Mom and Tina's takes pride in their home-grown recipes, and I'm grateful the Torres family is happy to share their love for comfort food with us. If you never tire of feel-good dishes and sweets, and crave for a homey, laid-back atmosphere, this is the place for you.
