Creating landmarks for wholesome & delicious cuisine
In the 1980s, Julita Urbina ventured into catering which became a hit, eventually serving Cebu’s top companies. From the beginning, Mrs. Urbina’s children showed their support by helping out even while studying.
Julita Urbina renovated the family’s apartment space, expanded the venue, and re-opened it as Café Laguna, serving delicious authentic Filipino dishes, which evoke the goodness of home-cooked meals in a mother’s kitchen. Purely through word of mouth, the restaurant became an overnight success. Everyone went for a taste, and always came back for more, especially for her trademark Puto Bumbong (steamed purple sticky rice), which many say was unlike any other.
Café Laguna opened in Ayala Center Cebu as the first food-category locator.
Laguna Garden Cafe opened at what is now The Terraces of Ayala Center Cebu.
On July 2004, Café Laguna’s first franchise outlet and branch outside of Cebu opens in Cagayan de Oro City.
The Laguna Group’s Vietnamese-Thai restaurant, Lemon Grass, was opened at Ayala Center Cebu.
That same year, Mrs. Urbina’s son, Raki, took on the role as the group’s Corporate Chef upon finishing his advanced culinary studies at the Culinary Institute of America. Through Chef Raki and Mrs. Urbina’s collaboration, hard work, and passion for cooking, Laguna Catering became an instant favorite in Cebu.
