Small talk, Big eat!

Do you think Smalltalk Cafe was named after the Smalltalk programming language? :)
Or maybe because the food are all so good, you'll have less chitchat time? :D
To say that my tummy was overjoyed in Bicol is an understatement. 

Smalltalk Cafe is our first stop and became our favorite. Food worth every penny thus this restaurant became our pocket's bff.
During our stay in Legazpi, we always go to Smalltalk for lunch. :)
