The Lighthouse

Category: Coffee Shop.

The Lighthouse is located on the corner of Ilustre and Camus Street across from People's Park. I have been here many times for a cold ice tea or a soda after visiting People's Park. People's Park does not allow vendors in the park or outside and this is the nearest place to get something cold to drink.

The Lighthouse is a Coffee Shop, restaurant and a convenience store all in one. They have a outside grill and an area to sit. The Coffee Shop is small with only about four tables and they are small. The convenience store has a few tables to sit at. On the weekends you will find 8 to 10 PNP, Davao Police and the bike cops sitting in the outside area. At night this area is a hangout for the younger crowd.

This was our first time to actually eat here (6-12-2008) and ordered their special. It was a whole roasted chicken, noodles, vegetables and a 1.5 liter of soda for less then P300. Their was enough food for 4 or 5 people and the chicken was very good. We sat in the Coffee Shop and ate and their was not enough room on the table for all the food and drinks.

Rating (Scale 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest):
Food: 6
Service: 6
Ambiance: 5

Recommendation: Good.
The food was good and you get a lot of it. We were the only ones there and the service was good. It seemed very strange that we had to pay before they would prepare our food. We were the only ones there except for the 10 police outside, security guard at the door and four staff. The food we did not eat we ask to take it home and that was no problem except they wanted us to put the soda in a plastic bag. For some reason they wanted the plastic bottle the soda was in.
