Breakfast at Cafe by the Ruins

After our dinner at 50's Diner last night, T and I decided to visit Cafe by the Ruins in downtown Baguio for breakfast.  The place sits inside the remnants of an old theater destroyed during World War II and was converted into a cafe in the late 80's.  It is located in the middle of the city but the place still has that old world charm and laid-back atmosphere which was really nice.

T wanted me to try out their breads and pastries but being the carnivore that I am, I opted for Tita Susie's Crispy Tapa.  The beef tapa is shredded and then deep-fried resulting to a crispy tasty treat reminiscent of Adobo Flakes.

A hearty breakfast in the middle of Baguio City

It came with sticky mountain rice and a side of tomato and onion relish.  The tapa was crispy as well as tasty and delicious.  It perfectly compliments the heaviness of the mountain rice while the tomato and onions provided freshness to the whole dish.

T, who wanted me to try their breads and pastries decided to stick to her Cafe by the Ruins favorite Pan Con Chocolat.  It has a sweet and flaky exterior and a yummy and gooey chocolate filling.  This bread is really good and goes perfectly with brewed coffee.

We didn't order much as we still have a lot of foodie destinations to visit throughout the day but overall, the meal was good and the service was great.  Their food is a bit on the pricey side but the ambiance was really nice and we really liked the laid-back feel of the place.

So when you're in Baguio and you're looking for that authentic Baguio dining experience, visit Cafe by the Ruins and try out their freshly baked breads and amazing local specialties.  You may visit their Facebook page for a peek of their menu.

  10. The tapa looks delish. But I've been reading a lot of negative reviews about the food being pricey yet mediocre. Im still gonna give this a shot though on my visit to Baguio next month.
