Comfort food
on your plate

We at Keyk Ni Jec always have your comfort in mind.As a distinct coffee and pastry shop in Iloilo, particularly in the town of Leon, we find ourselves to be the go-to place of people who want to unwind while away from home. Young professionals bond with their colleagues over coffee and cake here after a day’s work. Families who have come to love our baked goodies share some with their loved ones. We keep this atmosphere where people are at ease with others and their surroundings as they enjoy their food. And we want you to feel that in your every visit.

Moreover, if you are from other parts of the Philippines or the world, we want you to experience how well we Leonians treat our visitors. We owe our hospitality to our deep roots in this town, where the owner Gemma Cantara-Cabalfin (mother of Jec) built her business and nurtured her family. The kindness of friends and the generosity and support of the people around encourages us to pay it forward by providing our guests with a memorable dining experience.

Whether you are a resident accustomed to our offers or a tourist getting to know us as a coffee shop in Leon, Iloilo for the first time, you will easily recognize the flavors that are unique to Keyk Ni Jec.

Great food is always equated to great accommodation. We carry this very Filipino—and very Ilonggo—trait in every step of our food preparation: from mixing the baking ingredients to plating the dishes. Everyone behind the making of every cake, coffee, pasta, and burger that we serve are residents of Leon, including Gemma, who is very hands-on in putting together the recipes she herself developed. We don’t skimp on top-quality ingredients.

This makes the overall quality of our food authentically Leonian: made by Leonians, for Leonians and everyone else.

As you make yourself at home, we can make for you the most popular social drink of all time: coffee. It is our original “star of the menu” before we became popular for our cakes, pastries, and meals.

You can never go wrong with our top-quality beans that make every cup, no matter the variant, rich and flavorful. Its warmth reflects how residents of Leon will receive you, wherever you are in town. Our coffee is best paired with our famous cakes and other baked goodies.
