I attended UP Baguio back in 98', and I got acquainted to this restaurant a year into my college degree. For me, this place has become a comfort food place that I always run to whenever I have the chance. Lucky me, I married a man from Baguio, so everytime we are home for the holidays, I always have the... More

We ordered Baguio Bounty Salad, Baguio Bagnet ( sorry I still choose the one in Ilocos ) Pinikpikan and that tuna fish with coconut milk superb! ( i love it!) . Food... More

Expensive but good food. We love the coffee and my son remembers the bacon meal. We also like the omelette and kamote bread. Each meal is around 280-340 pesos plus service charge. It can be shared between small children. It is served with red rice, coffee/ juice, fruits and veggies. This is our usual stop over going to Sagada because... More

We went there with 7 other families, and we all enjoyed it....we were on the 1st floor, and from there you see the cooks baking bread and pasta.....very nice....we had very different food, from thai beef salad to pasta carbonara, to beef steu and italian bread, while we had strawberry shake, and strawberry soda....overall a great place and friendly staff

A great place to unwind with family and friends. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, a wide variety of food selections to choose from. Homey ambience and their decor is exquisite. My only concern is with the limited parking space in both branches.

My friend and I decided to take our dinner here. The place is busy and we have to wait to be seated. Since there was no host manning the "reception" area, a couple entered and sat in one of the dirty tables. We informed the waiter that we are waiting for a few minutes only to wait a little longer...

Their food is not overly yummy for the price. I think what you're paying here is their name and the ambiance. But to be very honest, there's a lot more better resto in Baguio than Cafe by the Ruins.
