Located along Domestic Road just minutes away from the airport terminals, Conrad’s Cafe + Grille is a casual and unassuming local joint that was built out of the owner’s unbridled love of food and sheer joy in sharing that food. Don’t be fooled by their modest set-up, however, as Conrad’s has served the likes of Manny Pacquiao and even President Rodrigo Duterte.

“Classic” is the word that comes to mind when you step through the doors of Conrad’s. Right as you enter, you are greeted by a vintage Vespa scooter, which immediately introduces you to the personality of the place.
