It offers high quality cakes and pastry products at an affordable price.
With its tagline "Life is unsure, eat your dessert first!", Margie's Kitchen has definitely tapped foodies and dessert lovers. With over 20 years of experience in baking, Mrs. Calo's homemade goodies have become famous all over the city and a popular "pasalubong" from Butuan, too. Moreover, the people of Butuan have fallen in love with Margie's artsy slash coffee shop vibe (with free WiFi, too) so much that this is where they meet up to chat or to show a visitor around. Open until 2:00 am on weekends, this place has definitely become "the place to be" in Butuan.
