Still haven’t been to ELYSEÉ CAFÉ? The garden-themed cafe quietly nestled along the rolling slopes of Malasag Hills in Cugman, Cagayan de Oro City has been drawing guests since it opened in late December 2021. With good food and a refreshing garden ambiance overlooking the bay, Elyseé Café is a perfect place to spend time with your family and friends. It is open Tuesday to Sunday from 1:00pm to 8:00pm.
