At least 6 times a year, we eat at The Lobby, Manila Peninsula (high tea or breakfast). If you want to frequent this restaurant, might as well sign up for their membership. Discounts and other freebies awaits you. Food is great and the ambience, superb!

One of the grandest hotel lobbies that I've seen in Asia. It's old Manila at one of its best. The huge sunburst on the ceiling is spectacular. It's a good place to have tea and conduct business meetings. The service can be a tad slow.

Grab a great snack/drink-the lobby is buzzing and you might see Imelda Marcos come for dessert! Live music is played nightly. Book a table for a fantastic Sunday brunch/lunch. This is such a gorgeous space and some of the best people watching in Manila.
