    Bruno' Cafe and Restaurant entrance from Session R

    I know Bruno's Cafe since about 2001 and have been there for 100+ times to enjoy his fine and fresh deli food. A wide variety of desserts, fresh Baguio salads with house made dressing, gourmet snacks and fine dinner or daily specials year round make it a gourmet pleasure to eat out at this place.

    Bruno renewed his entire Cafe/Restaurant and made it larger and more beautiful all over.
    large TV screens with music or news. friendly waitresses and most of the time Bruno is presnet - in the kitchen or with guests - ready to tell one of his many funny jokes.

    Offers many fine Swiss deli specialties, fine Swiss Chocolates, tasty brewed coffee and home made cakes or apple pie and during winter season fresh strawberries.

    In 5 years of working and travelling the Philippiens - Bruno's Cafe is one of the very few gourmet restaurants in the Philippines I love so much that I sometimes travel just for his fine food for a few days to Baguio City. - like these Christmas days.

    early Baguio city visitors may know Bruno's Cafe and Restaurant under his previous name "Swiss Deli" at the same location.in Session Rd

    Favorite Dish: Strawberries with cream - fresh delicious strawberries
    Fine liverwurst sandwich - rarely found at all in the Philippines
    Spaghetti with home made tomato sauce - really rich tomato sauce
    Home made apple pie with cream - Swiss style - the best in the Philippines so far. fresh apples just perfectly baked, neither too much - all taste alive
    Brewed coffee - Bruno makes his own blend of finest local Philippine coffee, mainly Baracho from Batangas and Arabica coffee beans.
    I also love his many daily specials or his specials he makes JUST fo ryou if you ask and he is of good mood - Bruno will cook something out of the menu just for you
    he did many times and it always was something very special.

    456: The Best in town!!!

    by joiwatani Written May 7, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    456 Restaurant is locally owned and had been in business since I could remember. I have lived in Baguio City from 1978-1989 and this place is still there having the same business as usual - catering to the old folks of Baguio and to local tourists! This is a place to be at lunch time! University students gather here for their weekly meetings. You can see local real estate brokers and local businessmen drink their fresh-brewed coffee and get the latest news in town. The local newspaper journalists come here and chat. Local politicians, lawyers, teachers and the local residents visit this place to eat, rub elbows, read the newspaper or and get their first hand news circulating in town!

    Favorite Dish: I like their chopsuey. It comes with freshly cut home-grown vegetables - a beautiful mix of sweet peas, cabbage, lettuce, bell pepper, sweet tiny corns, carrots, onions, shallots, fresh green onions and garlic mixed all together with chicken and/or pork.

    The food comes with freshly boiled white rice served in their white china platter.

    Make sure to order their freshly-brewed coffee and egg-drop soup!

    Zola: Zola, the best food ever

    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.

    Restaurants at SM Baguio: Dinner Overlooking Baguio

    by bike_packer Updated Apr 4, 2011

    View : Baguio at night
    1 more image

    The restaurants/coffee shops at the back side of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floor of SM Baguio have a great view of Baguio city center. There's a wide semi-covered balcony on each floor beside the restaurants where outdoor tables are set gives diners an amazing overlooking view of Baguio. This is more appreciated come night time when Baguio is lighted. With more than a dozen of prime restaurants to choose from, this is the most convenient and affordable place when with a big group.

    This is my family's favorite dinner place when in Baguio.

    Favorite Dish: Among the restaurants here are : Tia Maria's (mexican). Gerry's Grill (local). Don Henricos (Italian pasta and pizza). Kitaro (japanese). Mxt (chinese). Mini shabu-shabu. Starbucks (coffee shop). plus the ever reliable McDo, Jollibee, Chowking, KFC.

    Picarre Restaurants: Delightfully Eclectic Food from Picarre

    by tinyMariam Written May 2, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Aside from their wide selection of classic and Baguio-original coffees, Picarre is also known for their delightfully eclectic menu which includes among others, pasta, savory and dessert crepes, sandwiches, rice meals, salads, cakes and pastries.

    The Porta Vaga branch is right next to the Baguio Cathedral and their SM branch is located on the Veranda overlooking the city of Baguio.

    Favorite Dish: All their savory (pizza, ham cheese, pesto mozzarella) and dessert (generously filled with mango, strawberry, blueberry, etc.) crepes are to die for! My favorite is their pizza crepe which I can eat 2 at one time.

    Likewise, all their hot and cold coffees me and my fiancee (he has ordered twice in one occassion their Machiatto) have tasted so far are the best!

  • Stationz Cafe: Amazing food, great atmosphere, cool people

    by jothan Written Apr 18, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    vizco's restaurant: yummy strawberry shortcake

    by themanilaguide Updated Jun 18, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    if you're looking for a good restaurant that has good food and good ambiance, i think you'll love this classy and clean cafe along session road (beside don henrico's).

    the food is great (in terms of taste and presentation), the serving size is very generous and the best part about it is that everything in their menu is quiet cheap.

    the employees are nice too and the service is fast.

    Favorite Dish: just imagine this,

    fresh strawberries and icing on top of a soft and moist cake with strawberry syrup swirls... YUMMY!

    price per slice: 60 pesos or less

    their strawberry short cake is to die for!

    p.s.

    their brewed coffee is great too

    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!!

    shop along Session Road: "Turo turo" got me this...

    by myspices Updated Oct 28, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    by way of

    It is one of those shops along Session Road (there are plenty of them). If you are hungry and do not know what to eat, just go in one of the shops that have a lot of locals eating there. That way, you can be assured that the food is not that bad. We were already late for our dinner and not wanting to eat any of the fast food, we decided to go into one of the many shops that sell local dishes. There's this shop that offered discount on that day ... think it was a 20% discount . Most of the dishes are gone but there are still some that I feel would taste nice. By way of "turo turo", pointing to the dishes displayed ..... here's what I have ordered ....

    Favorite Dish: 1) minced meat with bittergourd
    2) vegetables of pumpkin, string beans, eggplant, small bittergourd - think it's "pinakbet"
    3) a bowl of soup on the house
    4) rice with some sauce

    Cost : 45pesos

    star cafe: old school restaurant that kicks ass

    by themanilaguide Written Jun 19, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    this old restaurant is not aesthetically pleasing but this place really kicks ass!

    star cafe reminds of those restaurants found in ongpin street in manila (china town). the restaurant itself is not pleasing to the eyes but the food they serve there, aside from being cheap, are very delicious.
    i wouldn't eat there if it wasn't for my honey, apparently, his family (his dad in particular) has been a big fan of star cafe since the 70's.
    i'm just happy that he took me there cuz its all worth it

    Favorite Dish: chopsuey and their fried chicken!

    Cocho-Late de Batirol: Choco-Late

    by jazu Written Jan 1, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tkokolate E!

    The resto has a very nice ambiance. Good for a cozy cool morning meal with hot choco and a good book . Service is not that good though. You have to wait almost about 20 minutes before your food is served. To ease the wait, the resto gives their patrons a cup of their house specialty, the chocolate de batirol. They serve filipino dishes for breakfast, lunch and snacks.

    Favorite Dish: their hot choco, prepared in the native way is the restos specialty, great for baguio's cold climate.

    Good Taste Restaurant: Perfect for Backpackers and Budget Travelers!

    having a cup of hot choco... (photo by adam)

    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)

  • The Rose Bowl: Still serving quality Chinese food in Baguio!

    by thescene Updated Jan 20, 2009

    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.
