Little Flour Café
As the “little sister” of the popular Wildflour Café, Little Flour doesn’t disappoint with its all-day brunch menu of its yummy sisig and adobo rice bowls and pastries. But the star of this café—designed by architect Lara Barrios—is the chair “chandelier” on the ceiling, which is a conversation starter unto itself.
