Being at the center of the city, Vizco’s has been a signature Baguio restaurant to visit. It’s a café famous for its cakes which are freshly made and affordable. It’s for people trying to find a restaurant that will get you your money’s worth. It’s not for guests who want a spacious place to eat at. We recommend their wildly popular Strawberry Short Cake, topped with fresh strawberries. Our insider tip: It opened a sister restaurant in Camp John Hay’s Technohub called Photo Fog Café.

Cafe in the Sky is a view deck, cafe and bed & breakfast place located in the mountains of Sto. Tomas offering a unique experience of dining with a sea of clouds in view. The cafe serves light meals, snacks and beverages that are light on the pocket. It’s great place to bring the whole family, especially balikbayans or tourists. It’s not recommended for people without private vehicles. Taxi cabs accept riding contracts up the mountain, but it may be harder to find jeepneys that would take you back down. Our insider tip: Private vehicle owners are charged a minimal environmental fee of P25/head, children excluded, midway up.

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 BaguioIt’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. Our insider tip is to try getting their guava preserve jam as pasalubong from your long weekend adventures.

50’s Diner is an American retro diner filled with pop culture memorabilia such as posters of American icons, neon lights, a jukebox and even a red buggy. The whole vibe is reminisent of diners with servers on skates. Their menu includes steaks, pastas, fish and chips – as well as some Pinoy comfort food favorites. It’s for the young and the old who appreciate the throwback. It’s not for people who want a quiet and relaxed space to chill in. We recommend the Guys on the Hood, Gangsta Gangsta and their milkshakes. Our insider tip: Avoid over-ordering as servings of some dishes are already good for sharing.
