A Neighborhood Cafe Called the Little Owl

Are you familiar with Lola Cafe + Bar and Liberty Kitchen + Brew? Then you know that the team behind these two successful food establishments is the Lola Group of Restaurants. If you love both, you would be thrilled to know that they opened a new restaurant concept in Quezon City called Little Owl.

This neighborhood cafe is located at 65 Broadway Avenue in New Manila. Little Owl, as the name suggests, is little and tranquil. Yes, just like the noble creatures the Little Owl cafe is a small meeting place where you can relax and enjoy all-day brunch with family, friends and colleagues.

The cafe features a simple and clean al fresco and indoor dining as well as function room perfect for small gatherings. As you can see below, Little Owl is indeed "Instagrammable". The white walls match the black-framed mirrors, arched windows and other elements in the room giving diners a relaxing and picture-worthy ambiance.

When it comes to food, Little Owl has a lot to offer. Below are some of their lovely meals!

Caesar Salad

You can never go wrong with a classic Caesar Salad especially with some bacon bits. The lightly grilled romaine with bacon bits and Parmesan shavings offers a great flavor and texture.

Salmon Benedict

If you don't like rice, Little Owl's Salmon Benedict is definitely one delicious breakfast/brunch meal option. It's made with cured salmon, poached eggs, arugula and hollandaise sauce.

Mushroom Tartine

What I love about pesto is its versatility! You can add it in pasta or bread like the Mushroom Tartine. It is topped with creamy scrambled eggs and a flavorful kale pesto sauce.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Little Owl's version has three cheeses - mozzarella, cheddar and gruyere complete with caramelized onions served with side salad. This one I did not enjoy that much because the cheese wasn't enough. It doesn't have to be overflowing but this one did not have much cheese on it.

Chicken Waffle Burger

If you love chicken and waffle, this is a match made in heaven. The only problem is it's too dry. Yes, there's coleslaw in the middle but it was overpowered by the crunchiness and heaviness - perhaps a thinner slice or more coleslaw?

Wild Mushroom

We had a little discussion with this one as we all thought it was Bolognese. This is in fact little Owl's Wild Mushroom pasta. The taste is pretty average and was more on the sour part.

Banana Pancake

This reminded me of the fluffy Japan-style pancakes. Little Owl's Banana Pancake is moist and is even more delicious with maple butter and banana.

Thick Cut Bacon

If you failed to eat breakfast, this is the perfect choice! Enjoy THICK Cut Bacon Steaks with apple marmalade served with eggs and rice or with scrambled eggs and toast.

Fish 'n Chips

The fried dory fillet and shoestring fries with tartar sauce is a great snack. Sadly, I didn't taste anything special here.


Little Owl has four offerings - Calamansi Tart, Cheesecake, Chocolate Tart, and the Warm Apple & Pecan. I was able to try all except Calamansi Tart. The best one for me is the Chocolate Tart because of its rich and bittersweet flavor and cappuccino cream.

During my visit, Little Owl was still on soft opening. I'm planning on bringing my family for a lovely lunch and a full dining experience. Little Owl is open from 11AM to 11PM on Mondays to Saturdays and from 9AM - 9PM on Sundays.

ClariSays.com would like to thank Little Owl and Ms. Rizza Villaflor, Little Owl's Freelance Marketing Consultant.
