One fine morning of Labor day and before bounding for Manila, Danny and I met up with my sister’s friend. Unexpectedly, she treated us with breakfast at Cuarto Hotel. I would have to say that the hotel’s restaurant resembles a barn-like interior but with elegance. Too bad I forgot to take photos. After eating, she offered to tour us around Lahug and drop us off at SM mall so we’ll be nearer to airport.
First stop, La Vie Parisienne (Parisian Life) which owned by the Lhuilliers. We only saw a Chinese couple enjoying their croissants under the shade of the trees when we arrived. The bakery is known for their freshly baked bread and delectable macarons.
At night, the place is usually packed with people to fancy the stunning glow of pink cherry blossoms while devouring a glass of wine and chilling with friends or significant others.
We also checked out the wine library.

A few meters from La Vie is a colonial house bought by the Primary Properties Corporation in 2010 and named it Circa 1900, that turned to a fine-dining restaurant which serves fusion of international and Filipino cuisine. It also offers as a function venue to cater exclusive and intimate gatherings.
The whole resto is spacious enough to provide service for at least 50 people.
People may enjoy harmonious music while hanging out at the piano bar at night. They also sell fresh herbs from their backyard garden.
