Sweet Stop Baguio For Your Sweets Cravings

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.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

the most wonderful time of the year

What’s not to love about this month? It’s all about good vibes and smiles and cheers (and booze and caffeine and chocolates and late night binge watching your favorite movies, hahaha!).

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.

…Please Hold…

I miss this blog. I haven’t been blogging for quite a while now because of all the millions of things I have to do. Whenever I get to find a time to sit down and start writing, I see something that needs to be done immediately. So the blog takes the backseat again. My list of pending posts is growing longer and as much as I want to publish it all, the functioning braincells left after a long day clamors for sleep. I’m already feeling it. I’m burned out. I need a vacation. I need rest. I need a new […]
