Budget Quiet Meeting Places in Cebu

When you have important things to discuss, your local Jollibee is a little too jolly for brainstorming. Aside from the atmosphere, you have to consider the host’s budget. Here are some great ideas for successful meetings.

Café Georg

Known for dishes that never fail, Georg is the best place to hold lunch or dinner meetings. You can call ahead to reserve the glass room at +63 32 234 0887 so you can discuss matters privately. Price range per dish is P120-P300.

Location: Ground Floor MLD Building, Banilad

Opening Hours:

  • Sun - Thur 10.30am - 10pm

  • Fri - Sat 10.30am - 11pm

The Pantry

This has become one of my favorite places in Cebu. They serve really good – well, everything – at really good prices. It’s tiny so you can have the whole place to yourselves with a meeting of 10-12 people. You can have solo sandwiches or a platter of finger sandwiches for the table. It’s quiet and service is top-drawer! The Pantry is located at the Gallery in Mabolo. You can eat here for P150 per head.

Location: The Gallery, Strip Mall - Juan Luna Avenue - Mabolo, Cebu

Opening Hours:

  • Thursdays - 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM

Macaron Tango

You’ll only know this place if you work or live near it. This French café serves the most delicate macarons! Hold a lunch meeting, get some reading/work done, or have a quiet merienda at this posh space, where it’s cool, quiet, and delicious!

At no extra cost, get a private room all to yourselves at this chic restaurant.  It’s perfect for entertaining clients, holding business meetings, or spending some quiet time with the ones you love. There’s fresh seafood, kebabs, pasta, and dessert, all under P300 each.
