I’ve recently found this gem of a place called Odds Café Nails and Spa. Actually, the café is easy to miss, but it should be on everyone’s radar. It’s got a treasure trove of comfort food goodness that ranges from sweet to savory. When you first walk in, it’s so easy to feel at ease and love the place. It is kept small and homey. I was immediately greeted by a gentleman who was more than happy to help us find what was so special about their cozy place. (I later on found out it was actually the owner, Mr. Art Sebastian who greeted me at the door, that’s how hands-on he is with his business.) I loved the staff’s level of enthusiasm and quality service. He’s very knowledgeable about what Odds Café and Nail Spa has to offer and was quick to point out drinks and orders that’s huge enough and good for sharing. I ended up ordering their concoction of Harry Potter’s famous Butterbeer. It was served on a large mug and since I’m diabetic I had asked them to minimize its sweetness. I was happy they agreed to tone down and tweak the drink upon my request. It’s pretty interesting but it’s not something you’d really order on a regular basis (unless you’d want to be diabetic too just like me). But I highly recommend them for those with sweet tooth. Odds Café and Nail Spa’s Butterbeer tastes and looks even better than the ones you’ve had (if you've ever tried it) in that small Maginhawa store serving the same specialty drink. So for my fellow Potterheads, I’d strongly suggest you guys should come and check out this place!
|Tuna Pesto pasta|
All the dishes have very generous servings that can be shared by 2 persons. I loved everything about my Club House Sandwich plus it’s healthier since it’s a wheat bread. It’s served with lightly salted crispy potato chips. My companions have also tried their Spicy Sardines and Olives pasta as well as their Tuna Pesto. It would’ve tasted good but because the pasta wasn’t al dente (firm to the bite) enough as it’s supposed to be served, appearing to be a little overcooked, hence the sogginess + the pasta was literally swimming in generous olive oil, I’m glad I had ordered for a clubhouse sandwich instead of the usual pasta.

|Barbecue Pork Ribs|
Although I have to commend Odds Café and Nail Spa’s Barbecue Pork Ribs. I think it’s their signature dish hands down. Imagine an honest-to-goodness and fall-off the barbecue ribs---so tender, almost melt-in-your-mouth. I kid you not, it tastes so divine. It goes well with the secret sauce. But in my own honest opinion, with or without the sauce, it’s already perfect! And for only Php200 (served with a cup of rice and vegetables sidings), this is a huge value for money! If there’s a dish I’d highly recommend at this cafe, this would be it.
|Salted Caramel Creamy|
Another best seller and worth mentioning has to be their Salted Caramel Creamies. Served on gigantic tubs, it’s every sweet tooth’s dream beverage. I would recommend this for lovers because it’s perfect for one of those romantic dates when you sip this with two straws as you look into each other’s eyes. How romantic!
Yes, there's a Nail Spa Upstairs...
Now why is it called Odds Café and Nail Spa? Because there’s really a nail spa upstairs for those who would love to have their nails done while enjoying such great food and drink treats. For the other family members, there are available board games for them to play with such as Scrabbles, Chess or Snakes and Ladders. Pampering treatment and massage is within reach and when the stomach begins to grumble, look no further, just order them from the cafe downstairs.

Would I be back soon? Of course! :)
