Attentive staff. Food was good we had omelette, various pastry, latte etc. Quick service. It was on the pricey side Washooms need attention.

Revisited Cafe by the Ruins after a long time, and wasn't disappointed. While the interiors and overall feel have changed, the food is still superb -- great quality, fresh, tasty, and good size servings. Parking remains to be a problem, though - so best to go at non-peak hours to park and enjoy the food amidst the quiet.

Its a great restaurant! Everyone should try it... It's a filipino food mixed with a Cordilleran or native specialty. The fresh lumpia and camote bread is so delicious. I recommend these to those who are on diet. :) Its a little bit pricey but I'm sure you'll really love it too. :)

Everytime we go to Baguio we make it a point to visit and enjoy the food in Cafe by the Ruins. My husband's favorite is their pinikpikan. We also like their breads and dips. Ambiance is great too!

The coffee is good and mainly because of the cool weather and nice view. Taste is nice also. We also ordered food and taste was nice. Place was decorated nicely. Service is okay but tends to get slow because of the volume of guests - which is understandable. Will go back whenever we're in Baguio.

been there before but plans are made again so much good things about the site its more on nature and if you are a historical buff most of the ruins here are made during and after World war 2 in the Philippines when the americans liberated Bagiuo area. Bring your family and or friends for a cup of coffee.

We stopped at the cafe by the ruins to have breakfast. We had a hard time finding it and at first you only see a bakery but behind it you find a nice cafe with surprisingly many tables. The breakfast was also pretty good at a reasonable price.

This is a piece of heaven that everybody should experience to have. When you order for this shortcake, let them know that you want the single tower--more appealing, but equally delicious. One tower strawberry shortcake is more enjoyable than the split.
