Good location in downtown Tacloban, very close to Divine Word Hospital. Staff are great. Food is good although presentation can vary from day to day. Often have problems with their internet. I regularly visit Dream and will continue to do so.

Opens for Coffee around 7am and cooking starts around 10am. Bacon and egg waffle is great, so is the coffee. Expats hang out here of an afternoon/evening. Food is cooked fresh and served hot. A good selection of Philippino and western food.
