Mary Grace Café is one of the go-to cafés for when you want to relax and have a laid back titahan session with friends or a chill Sunday brunch with the family. If you’ve ever been to Mary Grace Cafe, one shouldn’t miss indulging in their famous cheese rolls and ensaymadas, paired with coffee or hot chocolate, of course!
But if you’re suddenly feeling a little adventurous and curious about what else on the menu is worth trying (besides the cheese rolls and ensaymadas), here are some of the Mary Grace food items you should try (you can have the items delivered, too):
Mary Grace Food Items to Try
1 Crispy Cassava Chips with Onion Dip
Always start with a good appetizer! Did you know that Mary Grace sources its cassava chips from Bohol? This crunchy snack comes with the cafe’s special onion dip. It’s something you can munch on while waiting for the main course.
Mary Grace’s Crispy Cassava Chips with Onion Dip is available for P238.
2 Mushroom Cream Pasta
This pasta dish uses fettuccine noodles tossed in a delicious white cream. It’s made more flavorful and heftier with slivers of shiitake mushrooms and the flavor of truffle.
Mary Grace’s Mushroom Cream Pasta costs P438.
3 Classic Carbonara
Who doesn’t love a good, classic carbonara? Mary Grace’s take on this famous pasta dish uses fresh mushrooms and bacon strips sautéed with cream.
Mary Grace’s Classic Carbonara costs P368.
4 Lemon Bars
These lemon bars are oh-so-sweet and oh-so-tangy! These dessert bars have a nice buttery crust with a layer of lemon curd filling on top, dusted with confectioners’ sugar.
Mary Grace’s Lemon Bars cost P198 for four pieces.
5 Black Velvet Cake
Another dessert that deserves a spot on your table is Mary Grace’s black velvet cake. This cake has layers of rich chocolate cake, covered in luscious cream cheese frosting. It’s not too sweet that devouring two or more slices will be a piece of cake.
Mary Grace’s Black Velvet cake costs P442/mini cake and P1,129/whole cake.
Those who love coffee and coffee-flavored desserts shouldn’t miss out on Mary Grace’s tiramisu! This cake has sponge cake soaked in a coffee-brandy concoction with a creamy mascarpone filling in between layers and on the sides, and then dusted with coffee.
Mary Grace’s Tiramisu costs P401/mini cake and P1,125/whole cake.
We all know that the festive fruitcake can be polarizing, but what people don’t get is that it takes the right ingredients to make fruitcake delicious. If you want to change your perception and feelings about this holiday treat, you should try Mary Grace’s fruitcake. It has all the classic fruit cake staples: walnuts, glazed fruits, and the kick of brandy.
Mary Grace’s Fruit Cake is a seasonal item and is usually available around November.
