Cafe By The Ruins is a nice place to celebrate events or to just spend time with family, friends or your special someone. I haven’t been to Cafe By The Ruins for a long time. The last time I remember would probably be when I took my Mom and Aunt for coffee when I was about 5 months pregnant. And that was to make it officially known to relatives that I was pregnant. LOL! That was a long time ago.
This was also my first time to go to Dua. And while the new place doesn’t have the same ambience as the original one, it definitely has its own charm but the same warm, welcoming feeling.
Lemon and Olives is the first Greek authentic restaurant in Baguio. After all, the chef is Greek, from Athens. I learned about this place when my sister posted a photo of their dinner dates at this place. The place looked interesting and I’ve been wanting to try it since then.
Last Sunday, the little boy and I met up with my Mom after church so we can go have coffee. She suggested Sweet Stop at La Azotea Building. I didn’t know that they are now a cafe to be honest. They used to have this kiosk at the entrance of La Azotea with displays of their delectable cupcakes and other pastries.
In fact, back in 2011, I ordered cupcakes from them for my parents’ renewal of vows. I got 100 pieces of banana cupcake with buttercream frosting.
I’ve been hearing good things about Cafe Yagam so I was eager to try the place out. So on the last day of October, after visiting my sister to find gold from her stocks of clothes (aka ukay-ukay for sale – I found two very nice tops!), we headed to Cafe Yagam for our afternoon coffee treat.
Situated in a residential area, the house-turned-coffee shop has that feel that makes you feel right at home. They have wooden floors, wooden tables and chairs and big windows that lets the cool mountain breeze in. The surrounding area is quiet, too, and none of the city’s usual hustle and bustle. It’s a perfect place for people wanting to enjoy the cool Baguio weather and to have conversations with friends.
