In the olden days, Cebuano breakfast often includes the traditional puto maya, chocolate sikwate, and the likes. Brush aside the trendy milk teas for a while and embrace the Cebuano culture at Maharlicup in Busay, Cebu City.
Maharlicup is a café which serves many Cebuano delicacies such as torta, bibingka, the puto maya and sikwate, ensaymada, kape, etc. As cafés are recently making a surge for their relaxing vibe, Maharlicup also offers such feeling as it is situated in Brgy. Malubog. The place gives you a scenic view of the sky and mountains, chilling your bones and calming your spirit.
The café also serves your food with wooden utensils like wooden spoons, forks, and mugs, giving off the traditional vibe. If you want to eat like a Cebuano, the café is one good place to practice.
Along with that, Maharlicup has recently opened another branch in the heart of IT Park’s Sugbo Mercado. If you are in the area, don’t hesitate to drop by and have a taste of their delicacies, although nothing beats the scenic view at Brgy. Malubog.

How to Get There?
Location: Brgy. Malubog, Transcentral Highway, Busay, Cebu City — just along the highway, few meters away from the eskina of Tops Lookout.
BY CAR: (Best option) Parking space available. Just search for ‘Maharlicup’ in Cebu Transcentral Highway via Waze or Google Maps.
BY HABAL-HABAL: Hire a habal-habal driver (motorcycle for hire) near JY Square Mall in Lahug, and inform him to drop you off at Maharlicup. Estimated fare is ₱100 per person (max of 2).
BY TAXI: Hiring a taxi cab is possible but that can be hefty. Most of them won’t give you a metered reading system – hence, they’ll be offering you an estimated fare in going there. You can also rent a car via SquadPH Travels.
