We heard so much about the Cafe by the Ruins especially the hot choco they serve. So we decided to celebrate our nth monthsary there (dinner) during our 5-day vacation trip in Baguio. At first glance, we find the place secluded because their signage is not that visible from the outside. However, we were surprised that there are many people inside when we arrived.
The ambiance is nostalgic and romantic, I must say. Maybe because of the lighting and the wood structures. The restaurant is not that big and I think, it has about 20 tables. It has a second floor deck where you can view the bakery and the entire place. I just wish that the deck has more view of the Baguio streets. Here are some photos that we took.
It’s past 8PM when we arrived there and we already had our free plated dinner at Chalet Baguio so we only ordered for light meals. We took the dining area at the deck and ordered the famous hot choco. Turned out, that the Suman and hot choco I ordered are too heavy in my stomach. I felt somehow bloated after few slices. The hot choco is really good!
Hon loves noodles so he ordered for Duck Noodles Soup. I can’t remember the exact price of this meal but our entire bill is Php 500+ ($60). Our food comprises of Duck Noodle Soup, Iced Latte, Hot Choco and Suman.
Guests can also take home some goodies and freshly baked breads. Their bakery is located at the front of the restaurant. Operating hours of Cafe by the Ruins is 7AM-9PM.
I’d say that the Cafe by the Ruins is worth the visit. Next time, I’ll make sure that I’m starving when I go there. =)
