CAFENO is a cozy cafe serving local barako coffee, ice cream, baked bread and single-serve inspired Batangas dishes inspired by the owner's recipes using local ingredients. It is located in a former gas station on the ground floor of a 100-year old ancestral house. There's also a gallery for local artists where you can buy great artwork.
