I ♥ BOHOL
Panglao | Where to Eat
This blog entry is about Buzzz Cafe, the restaurant and cafe of Bohol Bee Farm. If you are looking for a review of Bohol Bee Farm Resort itself, you can go here: A Family Overnighter in Bohol Bee Farm Resort
I am a Boholana but May 2017 was my first time in Buzzz Cafe and Bohol Bee Farm in Dauis, Panglao. Never has it crossed my mind to visit the place, maybe because it was too far from my hometown Maribojoc and I've always thought that you have to have your own transportation if you want to get here. We came from Alona Beach when we decided to visit the place so it was relatively convenient. It was only a few kilometers away from where we were staying in Alona, anyway, so might as well.
Buzzz Cafe is the restaurant of Bohol Bee Farm but most people would refer to the entire place as Bohol Bee Farm, including the restaurant. Apart from the restaurant, Bohol Bee Farm also has a resort complete with swimming pools, bar and massage services. This is also where they keep their garden, which guests, including walk-ins, are allowed to roam around. In fact, they do have a free tour every 30 minutes to showcase their garden and the mini-factories where they manufacture their organic goodies like pastries, seasonings, spreads and even skin care products (all-natural of course!).
The entire place of Bohol Bee Farm is obviously huge. The parking area was more than sufficient and their open area and gardens will make you lose a few pounds walking around it. You will be welcomed at the receiving area where the reception is, along with the souvenir shop, Kape Bee and Bar and the ice cream parlor. The receiving area is all brick and wood, which sets off a very rustic feel making the atmosphere very homey and cozy. There are couches and center tables around the area where guests can rest after the Bee Farm tour or have a cup of coffee while lounging. We arrived at the receiving area, took a few photos and proceeded down to the restaurant area.
The restaurant is located towards the back-end right along the cliff overlooking the ocean. The view from the restaurant is spectacular and the foods served were all organic (which reminded me so much of Sonya's Garden in Tagaytay) and ingredients came straight from their farm. Their menu included soups, salads, pizza, sandwiches, burgers, among others. They also serve fresh fruit juices, fruit shakes and wine. Budget would be about P300-P500 per head, depending on how hungry you are.
There is a specific area in the restaurant which has a nicer view of the ocean as it protrudes closer to the cliff. Hopefully during your visit, you are able to get a table in this area. It's usually preferred by most so it gets filled up rather quickly. We were not able to get a table here but below is a photo of a portion of it.
For those who will be going to Bohol Bee Farm soon, you can check out their menu below. Note that this photo was taken in 2017 so prices might have changed since then.
Here are photos of the food that you can order from Bohol Bee Farm. All are highly recommended! Their seafood are very fresh, chicken is very tasty and vegetables are harvested right off their farm and straight to the kitchen.
The photos below are from our more recent trip back to Bohol Bee Farm in 2018 when we checked in the resort.
