These days, restaurants place a premium not just on the food they prepare but also in the manner that they serve it. Does it look appetizing? Will it look good in a flat lay? Is it Instagrammable?
Enter the lifestyle brand that has got its aesthetic down pat. Sunnies was first introduced by way of trendy eyewear that everyone just wanted to be seen wearing. With a masterfully curated Instagram feed, the casual cool vibe of LA and muted pastels became #goals to thousands (251k, as of this writing) of Sunnies Studios supporters.
As owners—and possibly your new career squad goals—Georgina Wilson, Martine Cajucom, Bea Soriano Dee, and Eric Dee, Jr. revealed at the launch of Sunnies Cafe's second branch, they already planned on opening a cafe when they were still conceptualizing the eyewear brand. Eric shares that they wanted to bring the Sunnies lifestyle into something experiential. That's why when you step into the cafe, it's almost like stepping into your Insta-inspo.
But the folks at Sunnies aren't just giving you a feast for your eyes. It is a restaurant after all, and you go there to satisfy your tummy. They've partnered with Foodee Global Concepts, the group responsible for bringing in global food brands such as Tim Ho Wan and Todd English Food Hall. They describe the menu as comfort food with a modern twist, with every item taste-tested and chosen by the team.
From appetizers to main courses, and coffee to cocktails, the menu is quite affordable with prices starting at P190, where you and your bestie can have a good meal at P300-P400 each. A lot of the dishes available are good enough for sharing, so you don't have to get shy about picking off your date's plate—if you want to sample more than one entree.
Check out a few of the tasty dishes you can sample at the cafe below.
