Discover one of the hidden treasures of Talisay City, Negros Occidental. Spend a relaxing day at Selloum Cafe.
Talisay Garden Cafe/You need not travel that far to experience drinking the best native coffee and dining with a fantastic view of the mountains and lush vegetation. Please read about this exclusive-for-reservation-only cafe that we have discovered recently.
We explored my hometown, Talisay City. And we decided to be more adventurous this time. So, off we went to the mountainside of Talisay and traversed the path leading to Barangay Concepcion, a place famous for its luscious and sweet lanzones. Our destination: Selloum Cafe.
Getting to Selloum Cafe is a bit of a challenge. There are portions of the roads that are not concrete and narrow. And an area is too steep, so you should be extra careful when passing this part of the road.
Luckily, our SUV could pass the narrow path since, at any given time, only one vehicle could pass the road. Thanks to the local barangay traffic police force. They ensure that incoming and outgoing cars flow orderly and smoothly.
While you may have a bumpy ride, you will be treated to scenery you can never see in the city – dense forest, tall acacias lining the street, sugar cane fields, rooster farms, a panoramic view of the mountains, fresh air, and Selloum’s good food.
What did we order for lunch?
- Adobo Flakes – a combo of chicken and pork adobo flakes, organic egg, rice, and achara
- Chicken Fingers – fried chicken fillet shaped as fingers with mustard-mayo dip
- Grilled Chicken Pesto – grilled chicken with creamy pesto sauce, rice, and buttered corn
- Nacho Bowl – One of the cafe’s bestsellers, Nacho bowl is homemade nacho chips, ground beef, and cheese sauce salsa
- Kamote Fries – thick-cut sweet potato fried to perfection
- Buko Pandan Salad – young coconut meat, nata de coco, and condensed milk
- Iced coffee – best seller/signature iced coffee blend
What more can you ask for? We had lunch with Mother Nature. We took so many pictures and we just enjoyed the food and scenery.

What a great review! I would go there just for the coffee and food – it sounds like it is worth tackling the roads!
Holy wow! I’m not sure if the food or the location is more inviting. I want to live there. LOL
Hi Beth. Philippines is a tropical country, so we dont get winter and spring.. ha..ha..I hope you can visit the PHilippines someday.
Those Kamote Fries caught my eye. I like the location of the cafe.
Glad you like Kamote fries too. It’s a local version of potato. This one taste a bit sweet. So when you mix it with cheese powder, you get a perfect cheese fries.
This place is interesting and it’s something would love to visit it. I want to visit a lot of places. Thank you for sharing!
