I love this town for its rustic, mountain ridge charm. I was sad to see even a small building rise in the middle of the Poblacion.
This quaint cafe is one of its saving graces, though. That's why I have returned here for breakfast, with every visit to Sagada.
The fixtures in its interior are not much different from other cafes, except for a majestic mural by local artist Russell Maier. It explains the idea of the Dap-ayan, a traditional community get-together. Ask the owner, Jed Angway, about the details depicted in the artwork. He is generous with imparting knowledge about Sagada and Igorot culture.
Food is not an aspect I can greatly expound on, for I have ordered the same, reliable Cheese and Mushroom Omelette for 4 visits in a row. The omelette was always thick and hearty, made with a mix of grocery store button mushrooms and organic farm grown varieties. It comes with two of their own baked buns and bottomless coffee. A steal for 100 pesos!
Jed also so sells native take-home goods like honey, tapey (rice wine) and etag (smoked salted pork).
