Madge Café is an iconic coffee shop in Iloilo located at the Lapaz Market. Decades have passed and they still use the same pre-war recipe concocted by Vicente de la Cruz. Aside from their strong Arabica coffee and delectable food, what sets the café apart is the ambiance of the place itseld. Far from contemporary coffee shops, Madge offers a very homey, laidback appeal. They also display the customized mugs of their regular customers which the owners deliver to the respective families once the patron has departed.

Its garden area and the La Joya Hall have been repurposed and now serve as event venues. Interested parties can avail of the mansion tour (minimum of 5 persons).
For more than 40 years, the Original Biscocho Haus has been frequented by both locals and travelers from all over the world wanting to taste its wide array of delicious delicacies which include biscocho, barquillos, meringue, broas, toasted mamon, and tarts. Their signature butterscotch, a soft chewy pastry with a hint of sweetness, has also evolved through the years—from the original variant, its line now includes dates, mango, pineapple, and prunes. Upon the restoration of the flagship store, wood and steel elements, antique cabinets and accessories, Chinese pottery, and French windows were incorporated in the interiors and were later on applied to all 30 branches. Indeed, a trip to Iloilo wouldn't be complete without dropping by this pasalubong landmark!
