New Cafes on the Block

Whether it’s to catch up with friends, to have a meeting with colleagues and clients, or to have some alone time with a book, cafes are budget-friendly options, especially for students, to lounge around and relax with a cup of coffee, tea, and/or good food. Because of its weather and people’s love for coffee and tea, the emergence of different cafes and tea shops here in Baguio City is not at all that surprising. Millennials and coffee enthusiasts are always on the lookout for new cafes to try out, and we want to make sure you’re not missing out.
