Café Laguna had the humblest of beginnings, with a young couple wanting a better life for their family.

Dr. Ricardo Urbina, together with his wife and children, moved from the province of Laguna to Cebu due to a military reassignment. His wife, Julita, was determined to contribute to her family as her husband’s salary could merely sustain their five children. Armed with a passion for cooking, Julita Urbina started a small eatery serving her mother’s recipes of staple Tagalog dishes.

This venture in the 1970s became a hit and got the attention of executives from San Miguel Corporation’s plant in Cebu. Julita was eventually invited to run one of the company’s two canteens, serving thousands of employees daily, operating 24/7.

In 1991, Café Laguna opened its first store in Lahug, Cebu City, the same place where Julita Urbina’s first eatery once stood. The restaurant featured an extensive menu of Filipino dishes, from flavorful appetizers to standard merienda fare. Longstanding favorites include Kare-Kare with Bagoong, Lumpiang Sariwa, and Puto Bumbong, a kakanin usually seen during Christmas time but is available all year round in store.

More than three decades later, Café Laguna has opened more branches in Cebu and neighboring VisMin cities. Each store is a place for catching up with friends and celebrating milestones with the family. 

The restaurant has also branched out into event dining through Laguna Catering, serving Filipino feasts and various international cuisines to its wide clientele in Cebu.
