“Delish!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

Food is simply delicious. I ordered the bagnet and the lava cake and had I not been so full already, I would've ordered more! The price is a little hefty but with the taste and quality of food they serve, its totally well worth you money!

“okay lang.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

Baguio is my 3rd home. Honestly, we would only try the different new bars in town whenever we are there. Hence, its my first time hopping from one resto to another in Baguio.

Ambiance - nice.
Location - reachable, yeah near Wright Park and Session Road.
Food - taste good, nothing special.
Service - a bit slow. Have to approach the waiters as they seem to have forgotten their protocols when sitting customers. Food will arrive between 15 - 30 minutes.
Price - a bit pricey for Baguio. Like dinning in Manila.

Why did I go here? Many bloggers rated this 100% and so I went.

Therefore, this is an overrated resto.

“Art and good food combined”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

This is my first time to dine at Cafe by the Ruins and I would say that it was really worth the trip. This cafe appears consistently as one of the best places to dine in Baguio City and the reviews by the travelers are all accurate afterall. The food was great (we tried the pinikpikang manok, potato bread, bibingka cakes, suman, Rizal tsokolate, and the scones) and so as the ambience. The ruins were converted into an art gallery on its own. The service staff were courteous and attentive to details. This will definitely be one of my "required stopovers" in Baguio City.
