This place is a good breakfast place. Well they got lunch and dinner entrees too but I was there for the morning so I ate breakfast. Their bread are a bit pricey but is really good. The place is on the expensive side but surely the food is with quality and tastes really good.

Cafe by the Ruins has been one of the most popular restaurants in Baguio that it became a must-visit place when in the land of peanut brittle , ube jams and strawberries. The place has an ambiance that would make you feel your inside the woods.It was poorly lit though and made me a bit paranoid with mosquitoes.We also got... More

Very different kind of food. It's been our Sunday lunch before we go back home several time. They also make their own bread.

Don't forget to also try the fresh... More

Giving this restaurant a well-deserved 5 stars. The ambiance, the service and especially the foods are all superb. The Fillet Mignon is probably one o the best! and for the great quality, the price si pretty cheap too. I will definitively be back here again when I come back to Baguio!
