It has been a while, I know. I had been busy with my day job as of late and I have not been able to attend any events the past few months. I was so lucky to receive and invitation from the Rizal based foodies to join a foodie meet-up near Marcos Highway. The shop is called Coffee Time Cakes and Pastries.
Coffee Time Cakes and Pasties is a concept store that caters to the clients of their ATMT Car Care company that does professional detailing for cars. It’s a relatively small shop but it is so much more!

Such a great foodie find in Quezon City is 5 Loaves and 2 Fish. It is a relatively new restaurant located at The Rock Barangay Holy Spirit in Quezon City.
This is the reason when I received the invitation to the foodie event for 5 Loaves and 2Fish I happily accepted.
Ms. Dinah Miro, owner and creative foodie of 5 Loaves and 2 Fish
According to Ms. Dinah Miro, owner and the creative heart of the restaurant the path to launching their restaurant was not simple. Prior to the opening they encountered a lot of challenges along the way. One of which is the naming of the establishment, they had a lot of different names in mind of the restaurant all of which are already taken and registered. It was around mind July 2015 when finally found the perfect name found in the bible verse John 6:1-14 which talks about the miracle of the 5 Loaves and 2 Fish, and the rest as they say is history.
One of the restaurants speciality is the very unique bread called Lavosh, unleavened flat bread that originated in Armenia. a thin crisp bread used mostly to scoop food and it is the perfect appetizer to start a meal. It is served with the homemade pesto brûlée or chicken liver pate.
Come August, they will come out with the sweet Lavosh, they will be using cacao.
Trivia about Ms. Dinah’s Lavosh, it won an award at Merchant Central’s Ultimate Taste Test 2011, organized by foodies Anton Diaz of (Our Awesome Planet ) and RJ Ledesma (well-known media celebrity, columnist, events host and author)
Unique Cake Selection, that makes you want to take everything on the display case home
Homey Family feel.
As I enter this two story shop. There is a mezzanine on the 2nd level. I found that it reminds me a lot of the Mom and Pop shops my parents used to take me when I was younger. Such a welcoming homey feel about it that you automatically relax as you sit down.
