Nice ambience for dates, very good food.

Atmosphere is very artsy. Servers are very nice. Food is good in my opinion specially the Sinigang, very rich sour taste! I had a very good date here with my boyfriend.

Meals are priced above average but you get your money's worth. Breads and pastries are good but I'm not a fan of camote bread. I love their tapuy drink. People always cue during peak hours. A must when you're in the area. Friendly and excellent staff service.

Pumunta kami sa Cafe by the Ruins Dua and ok naman ang ambiance. The place looks elegant and kinda cozy. Sa food actually disappointing kasi antagal ng pagserve nila and di naman ganun kaworth it ang lasa. Their food is not disgusting but just regular taste. And price is too expensive with the fact na di naman ganun kasarap.

I spent few hours for a business meeting. What makes the place incredibly attractive is the Italian style house that still gives a clear feeling of its old beauty. The cafe is just ok. Seating there you will be overwhelmed by the ruins.... Don't miss a quite walk in the gardens. One around the ruins and the other on the... More

This is one of my favorite stops whenever we're in Baguio. However, it's one of the busiest restaurants too. Thus, you'd usually have to wait to get a table. Parking is very limited so it's either you double park inside or park along the road. Despite being in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city, inside, the... More

I will recommend the kamote bread with white cheese, bagnet with black rice, duck mami, spicy boneless bangus and most definitely the strawberries and cream. You shouldn't miss this place when you visit baguio.

Our property manager has their office next to the cafe.... After our meeting we were invited to this cafe... Our host started to present their specialties... Starting with the grass tea, the shreded adobo, the chicken they called (???) becoz it was prepared in a different way.. Everything served was a first for me and my wife and my boss...... More

Must try if you are visiting Baguio. Old feels vibe. Food is good for sharing because they have generous servings. I recommend their Ruin's coffee with Scones :)

Whenever I go to Baguio I see to it that I atleast have one meal in here. They offer freshly baked breads and brewed coffee. Try their Pinikpikang manok and Bagnet and you'll came back for more.

Nice to visit this restaurant again after a long time, and I was surprised that they improved a lot with the quality of food and service. The menu has a good selection and being a foodie, the owner did a good homework. The place is old but it is neat and clean. I will definitely be back here to savour... More
