The foods we ordered are all fantastic and came just in time. It is though somewhat pricey but sure worth it. Try the arroCaldo, good for the cold breeze of Baguio. Had some issues only with parking area as I have to park near the gate of one school located opposite of the resto (cafe by the ruins -dua). Overall... More

It’s not actually a café, but a restaurant, with a bakery attached to it. The site of Café by the Ruins used to be a hotel that burned down decades ago. They never rebuilt the hotel. Instead, they built a restaurant. You can still see the original structure with scorch marks around the restaurant. It’s history is the main draw... More

I attended UP Baguio back in 98', and I got acquainted to this restaurant a year into my college degree. For me, this place has become a comfort food place that I always run to whenever I have the chance. Lucky me, I married a man from Baguio, so everytime we are home for the holidays, I always have the... More

We ordered Baguio Bounty Salad, Baguio Bagnet ( sorry I still choose the one in Ilocos ) Pinikpikan and that tuna fish with coconut milk superb! ( i love it!) . Food... More

Expensive but good food. We love the coffee and my son remembers the bacon meal. We also like the omelette and kamote bread. Each meal is around 280-340 pesos plus service charge. It can be shared between small children. It is served with red rice, coffee/ juice, fruits and veggies. This is our usual stop over going to Sagada because... More

A great place to unwind with family and friends. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, a wide variety of food selections to choose from. Homey ambience and their decor is exquisite. My only concern is with the limited parking space in both branches.

Thank Eilleen C
