This is a place where you would look forward to visiting again. Dine at Cafe by the Ruins. You would wish to try every food in the menu :) Generous servings of good-tasting food. We've even ordered bread for take out for our next day breakfast :)

Beautiful setting, outdoors in a garden. Service was excellent. Menu is "farm to table" concept, and varies according to what is in season. The short rib sinigang and tortang talong were topics of conversation for the rest of our trip! Vegetarian friendly menu.

There was a wide variety of food and drinks, everything we ordered was great. The Bagnet (deep fried pork) was the best.

I grew up in Baguio and always make it a point to eat and "waste time" in this charming cafe. My eternal favorites are their camote bread which has a naturally sweet taste and their strawberry shortcake (which can definitely be shared). During my last visit, I ordered their Duck Mami and it was flavorful and hearty! Perfect for the... More

If you are looking for good food an nice ambiance, this is one restaurant you have to consider visiting at night. Food is great, service is excellent. Wish all ruins are made to look like this.

It was a long weekend & the place was teeming with people when we got there at 12:15nn. Unfortunately, we were no.18 in the wait list &... More

Tried this restaurant twice. If you are traveling on a shoestring budget, then do not set foot in this restaurant. But if you want to reward yourself with good food with Baguio feels, I can say Cafe by the Ruins is a must! Rice breakfast meals start at 280php but the serving is quite big. It also comes with coffee... More

Excellent dishes. The bagnet was cooked just right. The head of the staff was kind enough to put us on the wait list even if there was already a long line. The wait was definitely worth it. Must try their fruit shakes and pumpkin soup.:)
