Forest House Bistro & Cafe

Forest House Cafe & Bistro is the in-house restaurant of Forest Boutique Hotel, a consistent awardee for best boutique hotel and restaurant in Baguio. True to its name, this cafe is set in a homey country log cabin–the kind you’d actually find in the middle of a forest. It is the perfect metaphor to the City of Pines. An international menu that includes some Forest House specialties is served. It’s for romantic nights out and classy family gatherings. It’s not for barkadas looking for affordable meals and dishes. We recommend their Forest House specialties, especially the Bagnet dishes. Our insider tip is that they have buffet packages available aside from a la carte. Also, for coffee lovers, they offer bottomless Benguet Coffee.

Choco-late de Batirol is a Filipino garden cafe that’s said to be the home of the best hot chocolate in the Philippines. It’s for ambient breakfasts or a chilly afternoon merienda date. It’s not for late nights and drinking sessions. We recommend the Suman, Turon, and Red Egg and Tomato Salad. If you’re feeling adventurous, try their customer-recommended orange flavored tsokolate as well. Our insider tip is to visit on weekends for live acoustic music. Fun Fact: Batirol is a traditional wooden rod used to make the tsokolate thick, hence the name Choco-late de Batirol.

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 the Keywheat and Kraken. For first-timers or those who can’t decide, try ordering their Tasting Tray. Our insider tip is that they regularly rotate brews that are on tap, and add new ones as inspiration strikes its master brewers.

Amare La Cucina is an Italian restaurant famous for its traditional slow-cooked pizza and baby back ribs. Though it’s not in the heart of the city, a lot of people still visit the restaurant for its uniqueness and their traditional way of cooking. It’s for Italian cuisine lovers who want to try novelty pizzas in Baguio. It’s not for people who want multiple cups of rice to supplement their meal. We recommend that you try their brick oven pizzas. Our insider tip is that they even have a nutella-based pizza to satisfy your sweet tooth.

50's Diner

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 is to avoid over ordering, as servings of some dishes are already good for sharing.

Cafe by the Ruins

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

Hill Station

When a restaurant gets back-to-back recognition in Miele’s Best Restaurants in Asia Awards, you know you have to see what all the fuss is about. Hill Station is a fusion of European, American, and Asian cooking helping you explore the world through its plates and the casual Baguio-style cabin setup. It’s perfect for family dinners and intimate gatherings over 5-star dishes. It’s not for those relying on a tight budget. We recommend the Cambodian Coriander & Garlic Chicken and any of their signature desserts. Here’s a fun fact: Much has been said regarding Casa Vallejo’s ghostly apparitions in the area, as it was an old colonial structure in the early 1900s.
