10. Lemon and Olives Greek Taverna – Outlook Drive
Last month’s #9
Lemon and Olives Greek Taverna is Baguio’s first authentic Greek restaurant, headed by Chef Takis who came all the way from Athens, Greece. It’s for romantic dates or cozy meals with friends and family, most especially for Greek cuisine fanatics who can tell when it’s the real deal. It’s not for breakfast dates as the restaurant opens at 11am. Our insider tip: Dine al fresco to enjoy the full Baguio dining experience.
9. David’s Tea House Express – Cedar Park
David’s Tea House serves authentic Hong Kong-style dimsum, noodles, and congee at affordable prices. It’s one of the most familiar names when it comes to family-friendly, casual dining spots for Chinese food. It’s for people looking to satisfy their Hong Kong food cravings at affordable prices. It’s not for people looking for an upscale dining experience. We recommend Wonton Beef Noodles and Pork Century Egg Congee.
UG/F Cedar Peak Condominium, Upper Mabini St, Cor Gen. Luna Rd., Baguio
8. Yellow Cab Pizza – Travelite Express Hotel
Yellow Cab is a popular homegrown pizza chain that opened back in 2001. Known for using premium ingredients and generous toppings, their bestsellers include their signature pizzas, Dear Darla pizzas, chicken wings, Charlie Chan pasta, and their set meals. It’s for people looking for really good pizza and wraps. It’s not for those looking to eat healthy.
7. Café by the Ruins – Upper Session Road
When talking about Baguio’s must-try restaurants, Café by the Ruins has always been part of the list – serving natural and local ingredients that embody its way of cooking that is distinctly Baguio. It’s for people who want to taste authentic local dishes that tell something about the region’s culture. It’s not for guests who have a deep stomach and a bottomless appetite. We recommend the Pinikpikan, which is chicken soup used in rituals by natives, and the Baguio Bagnet with Padas bagoong, tomato relish, and lime.
6. Amare la Cucina – El Albergo Hotel
Amare la Cucina is a homegrown restaurant that is most known for their Neapolitan Pizza. Their pizzas are always freshly made in their traditional wood fire brick oven and you can even make your own! It’s for people looking for freshly made pizza the traditional way. It’s not for people looking to grab and go just a slice or two. We recommend their Pizza Con Prosciutto and Wood Fired Ribs.
5. Baguio Craft Brewery – Ben Palispis Highway
Baguio Craft Brewery is a restobar and microbrewery that serves craft beers developed and created by Xavierbier, a group of six like-minded individuals from three different countries driven by the desire to make their mark on the emerging craft beer culture in the Philippines. They also offer comfort food to perfectly match your beer. It’s for yuppies looking for a place to unwind with great food and drinks. It’s not for underaged kids or people who are looking for a quiet place to stay. We recommend their beer battered Fish & Chips and Yakitori to go along with your preferred beers.
4. Dairy Queen – Baguio Session
Last month’s #3
Known best for their blizzards – both the classics and the new flavors which they offer every few months – Dairy Queen also offers ice cream sandwiches, shakes, cakes, and banana splits that are all not only affordable but also delicious. It’s for those who have a sweet tooth. It’s not for those who are watching their blood sugar.
3. Max’s Restaurant – SM Baguio
Last month’s #3
Max’s Restaurant has been around since our grandparents’ time. In one way or another, we all grew up with Max’s and that’s why their simple and reliable Filipino offerings keep us coming back for more. It’s for those looking for a restaurant that’s perfect for big groups. It’s not for those looking for a fusion type of Filipino cuisine.
2. Café Will – Legarda Rd
Last month’s #6
Cafe Will is a great fine dining restaurant and Bar. It serves satisfying Asian, American, and Italian dishes and offers guests relaxing dining areas and also a wide function hall which is ideal for receptions, parties, and business conferences. It’s for big groups looking for good ambience and an extensive menu. It’s not for those looking for a quaint and small space to have an intimate dinner date. Insider tip: They offer customized packages for those who wish to celebrate special moments such as anniversaries, engagement parties, birthdays, and debuts.

1. Krispy Kreme – SM Baguio
Last month’s #7
Krispy Kreme is America’s favourite doughnut and coffee shop. It’s probably the only doughnut shop whose Original flavor is more popular and unbeatable by the rest of its menu. This super steal isn’t just for cops – it’s for anyone down for a sweet conversation over coffee and doughnuts. It’s not for those looking for a less-sweet option.
