All About Cafe Laguna - Best Restaurant in Cebu

Best Restaurant in Cebu

Best Restaurant in Cebu - Café Laguna began as a labor of love. Started by Lita Urbina, who comes from a family of culinary enthusiasts, the first restaurant in 1991 was her way of sharing her authentic Filipino dishes with everyone. With the help and encouragement of her family, she served carefully prepared home-cooked meals made with goodness and love, meals which brought back childhood memories of her mother’s kitchen and the countless hours spent indulging at the dinner table.

When Café Laguna first opened its doors in an unassuming space in Lahug in 1991, the small restaurant became an overnight success simply through word of mouth. From that first restaurant more than 20 years ago, Café Laguna is now a household name synonymous with great Filipino food and warm Filipino hospitality perfect for playing catch-up with friends, family gatherings and milestone celebrations. It has seven branches nationwide and serves over hundreds of client daily.

Dishes like kare-kare with bagoong, crispy pata, lumpiang sariwa, crispy tadyang and pandan chicken are from Mrs. Urbina’s kitchen and continue to be the showcase of her culinary prowess. Café Laguna is testament to the fact that Filipinos can never get enough of good food.

How Laguna Group Started

History of Laguna Group

Café Laguna, the flagship restaurant of the Laguna Group, began as a 10-table carenderia called Mother’s Best in an apartment that
Mrs. Urbina was renting.

During the 80’s, Mrs. Urbina ventured into catering which immediately became a hit, eventually serving some of Cebu’s top companies. From the beginning, Mrs. Urbina’s children showed their support by helping out even while studying.

Julita Urbina renovated their apartment space, expanded the venue, and re-opened it as Café Laguna, serving delicious authentic Filipino dishes, which evoke the goodness of home-cooked meals in your mother’s kitchen. Purely through word of mouth, the restaurant became an overnight success. Everyone went for a taste, and always came back for more, especially for her trademark Puto Bumbong (steamed purple sticky rice), which many say was unlike any other.

Café Laguna opened in Ayala Center Cebu as the first food-category locator.

Laguna Garden Cafe opened at what is now The Terraces of Ayala Center Cebu.

The Laguna Group’s Vietnamese-Thai restaurant, Lemon Grass, was opened at The Terraces. That same year, Mrs. Urbina’s son, Raki, took on the role as Laguna’s corporate chef upon finishing his advanced culinary studies at the Culinary Institute of America. Through Chef Raki and Mrs. Urbina’s collaboration, hard work, and passion for cooking, Laguna Catering become an instant favorite in Cebu.

The Laguna Group’s newest restaurant Ulli’s Streets of Asia, a melting pot of Asian flavors, opens its doors at the top floor of the Ayala Center Cebu’s new wing. Ulli’s was named after Mrs. Julita Urbina.
