Real Coffee and Tea Café
Founded in 1996 by Italian-American mother and daughter team Lee and Nadine Rosaia, Real Coffee and Tea Café were one of the first on the island to serve coffee, tea and pastries. Lee first came to Boracay in 1989 when the beaches were pristine and full of palm trees, falling deeply in love with it. It does not have the same amenities of a modern café, such as internet access and air-conditioning. The native hut is made of woven bamboo walls and wood, filled with shelves stacked with books and magazines. The all-day breakfast menu is popular among travellers, where one can choose from the fluffy omelettes, pancakes, and sandwiches. Their best seller is their iconic calamansi muffin: golden brown, moist and infused with a local calamansi citrus.
