Owned by Boy So, Café La Carmela features the same international buffet offered by La Carmela de Boracay Resort Hotel, located at the beach front of Station 2 in Boracay, a place frequented by famous stars in the country each time they visit the beach paradise. Wanting to bring the beach experience to city people, So opened the restaurant for individuals working around the corporate area, as well as for villages nearby.

And lastly to top up the savory feast, an open bar of Panna Cotta, Carrot Cake with Cheese Frosting and Chocolate Fountain drew attention to those who finished their meals.
