  1. I’m also foodie and I admit, of all restaurants, breadshops and tea / coffee shops you’ve mentioned above… I only tried 2 of them. Thanks for writing an article like this and indicate some CDO food stops in one. It’ll now be easy for me to list down those destinations that I haven’t tried yet. 🙂

  2. I’ve been to Cagayan de Oro and like it there a lot. Sadly, I haven’t been to any of the places you mentioned above. Oh well, there is always a next time.
