Sunny Sunday Brunch at Casa Mellifera in Rizal

It was a relaxing Sunday, and we wanted to change things up a bit, so we left the city and headed to Rizal to get brunch at Casa Mellifera- a great suggestion from my sister. Today, I’ll show you around the place and share our experience. Let’s go!

So, while they accept walk-ins (we were walk-in customers), I think it would be best to make a reservation so you can secure your table.

The Location | Where is it located?

The restaurant is inside a subdivision, so you need a pass. You can get this from the guard as you enter. Just say you’re going to Casa Mellifera. Once you get your pass, keep driving until you see Burrow Cafe, then keep going until you see a gate to your left with their sign (it looks small from afar).

It’s not accessible for commuters. It would be better to take your car or motorcycle if you want to visit.

Address: 133 Beverly Hills Dr, Subdivision, Taytay

The Ambiance at Casa Mellifera

As you can already tell, the place has a great ambiance. It’s simple, homey, and clean. It looks like the perfect place for brunch or afternoon snacks.

They have an air-conditioned dining area and al fresco spots that customers can choose from. We stayed outside because the indoor section was already full. It turned out fine because it was more spacious and felt more private.

The Food 

I can’t remember the exact names of the foods we ordered, but here are some of them: lechon kawali, beef with mushroom, carbonara with garlic bread, mushroom soup, and honey garlic chicken (not in photos). Rice is sold separately.

The mushroom soup is highly recommended. So yum!

The chicken sandwich was okay. I think it’s the same chicken from our honey garlic chicken order because they tasted the same.

The carbonara is ideal if you like pasta. But if you want something you can eat with rice, the beef with mushrooms is a great pick.

There were not a lot of options for the drinks, so we just went to Cafe Agusta for our afternoon beverages.

You can feed the bees inside the air-conditioned dining area by the door. Just ask the staff. They are happy to assist and have good customer service. You can also try the honey.

Since it was a brunch date with the fam, I wore a super comfortable day dress from Shopee. The bag and flats are from Nine West in Dubai, but you can also get them from the boutiques here in Manila or through Zalora on this link.

I opted for light makeup with my hair down.

  • We went on a weekday. We were lucky to find a parking space not far from the restaurant. I suggest going there early so you can pick your spot;

  • They have a 10% service charge;

  • There’s an apiary at the back. An apiary is a place where beehives are kept; 

  • Wear comfortable clothes and shoes; 

  • The term Mellifera is Latin for “honey-bearing” (hence Apis Mellifera being the scientific name for honey bee).
