Davao’s usual food scene consists of grilled tuna, kinilaw, and durian, but this cafe really caught my heart due to its variety of unique and healthy dishes. Sea Green Cafe, located at Circumferential Road in Davao City, offers a pescetarian menu (no beef, chicken, or pork). They also only use local and organic ingredients to make hearty and healthy meals.
The interior is really cozy and laidback. Plus, the sun shines through the glass walls to create perfect lighting for Instagram posts (hehe).
Whether you’re from Davao or not, Sea Green Cafe is really a must-try. I had a hard time choosing dishes from their 3-page menu as everything sounded delish. Some of their bestsellers are the Shrimp Burger (THE BOMB) sided with veggie crisps, Eggplant Parmesan, Creamy Pesto Vegetable Linguine, and the Lemon Garlic Shrimps with Garlic Black Rice. I also tried the Grilled Okra with Red Curry & Lime Dressing – a unique way to serve okra.
Everything I ate was a feast for my tastebuds and my tummy. The Shrimp Burger was really something and the Pesto Pasta may be the best I’ve tried. I wouldn’t mind flying all the way from Manila just for it. For dessert, try the Tablea Cheesecake – the cacao used is from the local farms of Davao. It really tastes like pure chocolatey goodness.
The ambiance is a 10/10 for me with its perfect vibe for an afternoon coffee, breakfast or simply anytime you’re hungry. Whether you’re a local or a tourist, a health buff or not; you won’t regret dining at Sea Green Cafe. You’ll get more than what you pay for.
