The Rose Bowl located in fromt of Burnham Park has been an icon of Baguio for many years. Me and my family would always find the time to eat here everytime we would make the six hour trip to the city of pines. After which we would go to Burnham Park or Camp John Hay to continue our adventure.
On this trip to Baguio, the Rose Bowl was our first stop for a late lunch. Getting a parking spot was quite difficult so be ready for that. Arriving there at around 2 PM I expected the place to be at worst half filled. Much to my surprise it was full and it took a few minutes for us to get a table such is the popularity of this place. I was able to eat some corn soup, fried rice, fried chicken, pansit, squid. As expected the food was excellent and delicious. The food was hot and seemed newly prepared. The pricing of the food was reasonable considering that servings were quite large. Overall it was a pleasant experience and remains to be one of Baguio's best restaurants.

You can get a complete breakfast meal (e.g. rice with egg, longganisa and corned beef served with a cup of hot choco) for just a little over a dollar! (about 70 pesos)
Favorite Dish: The hot chocolate was nothing special and the corned beef, I barely touched. But I did like their skinless longganisa (this is like a sausage made from ground pork, comparable to chorizo) and I heard that their buttered chicken is good (although I haven't tasted it myself)

This resto is open 24/7 and is very accessible. It is located along Baguio's famous and bustling street: "Session Road".
Favorite Dish: They have a nice selection of pizza and pasta (although I think the servings are rather small for someone with a big appetite like me :D )

Favorite Dish: I had the shredded tapa (beef) with rice for breakfast. The tapa was very tasty. I consumed only half of it with my 1 serving of rice. We took the remaining tapa with us and ate it on the bus on the way back to Manila. This was already several hours after we left the cafe and the tapa was still as crunchy and as flavorful as when it was first served to us in the restaurant -- yummy!!

The entire place is a feast for the eyes. I love the creative use of light and space.
The owner Kidlat Tahimik (director/writer/artist) describes it as an art gallery which serves vegetarian food.
Favorite Dish: I didn't like my cream-based pasta very much but the rest of the dishes we ordered were good. You can't go wrong if you choose from their selection of fresh, green salads.
Try their mango-puree / tea, a sweet and refreshing drink made from fresh mangoes!

Stationz Cafe is a newly opened restaurant/cafe next to Gate 4 SLU. It only opened one week ago but it is already packed to capacity. People are scrambling for an oppurtunity to eat at this one of a kind Cafe. The menu is geared towards students, so the prices are dirt cheap! Meals start at just 35 pesos, while freshsly brewed coffee starts at only 15 pesos! The food is amazing! Nothing is frozen or pre cooked, everything is made fresh as you order. The cooks use no MSG or extenders, the food is made with natural herbs and spices. The food is healthy and increadably delicious. The atmosphere is amazing! The atmosphere is similar to Starbucks or Mocha Blends, but the food is a mere fraction of the cost. The kitchen and dinning area are spotless. Everything is Sanitized and very clean! The staff are friendly and courteous. The owner is generous, and always goes out of her way to make customers happy. Overall, Stationz Cafe is an amazing experience! I personally will eat there every day!
Favorite Dish: I have two favourites actually. The first is an invention of the owner called "potpot". It is essentially a small round doughnut, with cheese in the middle, baked fresh as you order. It is mouth watering and extremely addictive.
My second favourite is there Soamai. One Soamai costs six pesos (at least two pesos cheaper than everyone else) and is bigger than your average Soamai. The Soamai is made fresh daily and is a favourite of most customers.

A friend and I wanted to have coffee in a quiet place in Baguio. So, I suggested we go COFFEEKLUTZ! Huge mistake!!! We went there on a Friday night at around 730pm. No one was there at the place yet, but the lady server was escorting to this place where we dont want to be seated. She's saying that they have to seat people appropriately because they usually have a crowd on Fridays.
It was 730, the band will start at 8 or something, NO ONE was in the area. and we were being forced to sit in a remote place. We asked to be moved but they would not allow us. They didnt even bother asking how long we were planning to stay (we had NO plans of staying long, just there for coffee supposedly).
Crappy customer service. Even the owner wasn't too accommodating either. It was really lousy and irritating!
Favorite Dish: With that kind of service, I don't see them lasting long. Sayang.

A not so blissful dinner at Bliss Cafe
I read good reviews about this veggie restaurant in lifestyle magazines and newspaper in Manila so made this resto part of our Baguio culinary adventure. The food was not worth the long wait. I wonder why our order took sooo long to serve when we were the only customers then. We ordered by plate meals and we had to follow up like 3-4x before they serve the first plate, and each order came to our table one at a time, like 20 minutes after the other. While others were eating already, some were still waiting. The Biancci and Miguel were crying because their veggie sisig was too spicy, I was looking for the server to ask for water but she was nowhere to be found, I even have to go to the kitchen to ask for water. I got so pissed to find out that the staff was all in the kitchen just playing around. The staff was not even pleasant nor apologetic for the long wait. When we asked for the bill, I questioned the server why the O.R. was under a different name, she couldn’t give me an answer. I asked her to replaced it (just to make her life a little difficult). When she came back to me, she said “ hindi daw do pwede sabi ng kasama ko” but I insisted. Then one of the staff in the kitchen came to me angry and said “ Hindi pwede kasi magbabayad kami sa BIR!” WHATTTT!!!! %8@*%!!!!!!!!! I felt like my blood pressure gone up, and my hidden waray waray nature came out (no need to detail every thing) Then the other kitchen staff came rushing with the new O.R. and apologizing for everything.
The place is supposed to be good in ambiance, but surely I will not recommend this resto and even warn people not to go to here.

I've been to Baguio several times but the recent trip I had, it was superb. Had lots of time to shop, stroll and eat. Oh yes! eat!! Discovered Zola at Session Road, they served the best tasting sizzling, pasta and salad at a very affordable rate. We stayed there for two days but we are always present at Zola from breakfast till dinner. Our bill was only a little over P300.00 that's a complete meal. Am from Makati and having dinner or just snack for two costs more than P300.00. Zola is the best so far in Baguio.

I have tried many restaurants after coming to Boguio but the best so far is a restaurant called Plaisata, its very hidden away, if you find it your are in luck. Its at the top of a parking lot near a pink church, very random all I can say. Its on session road
Sitting at the top you get a best view of the town and the mountains. The food is excellent and the service is very good. It’s small but nice.
but a bit expencive about 500 pesos for a very good meal
Favorite Dish: tanguri chicken, but their steak is also very good
