Went here Nov 23 for an early dinner. Place is so romantic at night and food service is fast. Music is just right and parking is very good because somebody is manning the parking.

A place to eat with a great ambiance and a quiet place to have convo over lunch or dinner. We tried the bagnet, lumpiang sariwa and arozcaldo and we enjoyed it. Not so special but still delicious. :)

Everytime I come to Baguio for a business trip I make it a point to drop by this restaurant. The salads are great, and I always come for 2 native dishes the magnet and the pinikpikan. Oh and the kamote bread is also a must try. The staff are attentive and food comes out within a reasonable timeframe. This place... More

The best health food restaurant in Baguio. Two locations. Shame the vegetarian menu has been reduced a while ago, it would benefit a few additions. Organic food available. Nice setting. Good service.

Typical restaurant, overrated, pricey. But at least the food tastes good. By the way, we went here on a Saturday, good thing we came before 7 AM otherwise we'll get to wait an hour or two just to be seated. Add that to the very long food preparation time. We ordered Arrozcaldo and the serving time was almost an hour.

The cafe is on a main street, but set back, behind a black gate. Nice ambiance, but the food was just okay. A little disappointed because of all the reviews recommending it.

Had early breakfast here. Coffee bread with spread and their BLT. Their coffee was ok, the kamote bread paired with the cream cheese spread was damn good and their BLT spot on. Ambience lives up to the name.

We ordered their bagnet with something but we all doesn't love it plus it's a bit pricey. We just like the ambiance of the place.
