It’s Summer! Perfect time of the year to go to Baguio. And when in Baguio, you have to try dining at Cafe by the Ruins. The place is located near Rizal Park in Baguio City, Most locals are familiar with the place so finding it won’t be that hard. Also, it is noticeable because it is the only place enclosed in a wooden or bamboo fence.

The place was called Cafe By the Ruins because it was the remaining structure of the old governor’s house. The pillars and posts inside the cafe was the actual ruins of the said house.

The place was beautiful!!! It was calm and peaceful inside But from time to time you will hear the noise from the construction immediately beside the Cafe. But generally it was still cozy and relaxing. The cafe was artistically decorated and designed. In fact, some art and photography exhibits were being held here.

The Place was Pretty, The Food was Amazing (Later) But… the service was a bit off that day.What happened was, we were taking pictures of the food and what we did was we placed the food on top of the menu – Carefully of course – For a better shot. But during our shoot, one of the waiter walked towards our table and without a word, removed the menu and took it! HOW RUDE WAS THAT?! He could have asked us properly if that was not allowed! Also, most of the time, the waiters were not that attentive, even to other tables. I hope they address this soon. The place would have been perfect.

But anyway, we went there primarily for the food anyway. So here’s what we had that day. We just finished breakfast so we were not able to order full meals. We settled for snack items instead.
