Kape Umali Bids You Welcome to Flaner
“The word flaner in French is just to kind of wander. Here, it’s okay to just be a flaner…and to dream and to walk along and then stop in a café.” ~ Parisian lady, The Layover 2×2.
These days, it’s fashionable to flaner…yes, not just in Paris, but also in the Philippines, more specifically, in Baguio. (After all, the climate’s great for it \m/.) There might be a shorter time allotted for hanging around/people watching/staring into space while nursing your choice of drink (doesn’t have to be coffee =D) here, but in any case, if you find yourself in the vicinity of Naguilian/Cooyeesan Hotel Plaza and you’re bitten by the bug to flaner, a good place to do that would be Kape Umali.
The cafe beckons to you from Shangrila Village (ohh, seems so comforting, you want to go now, don’t you? =D). Pass the road before Coyeesan, go through the boom barrier where the guard is and follow the road down. You’re ready to flaner!
If you want something more solid in your tummy (while you dream =b), Kape Umali has foodstuff to offer too: Sandwiches, sausages and beermatches like beef onions (pigar-pigar), bbq liempo, and chips and dip.
And then at another opportunity to flaner…this time with batchmates, too…(“,)
X marks Kape Umali for good food (ehem, good coffee…oh yes, the Philadelphia cheese steak sandwich, too) in Baguio. Want to flaner (even if it’s just for a little while)? Kape Umali bids you welcome! Umali kayo!

Search for Good Baguio Food
X Marks the Spot for Good Baguio Foods is a personal blog. Everything posted in this blog is PERSONAL OPINION DERIVED FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE and since TASTE can be pretty SUBJECTIVE, should NOT be taken as THE NORM or the LAW OF DINING around in the City of Pines.
Its (prosaic =b) contents are meant to help with the question “san tayo?”/where do we go? in relation to eating out in Baguio, to ENCOURAGE EXPLORING (eatsploring) and TRYING NEW THINGS offered in the City of Pines.
By all means, eat where you want to eat and eat what you want to eat. May you have a great experience with all the places you visit and may all the restaurants you go to deserve a ton of treasure chests! (“,)
(Also, if you have any second thoughts about a certain place you arrive at, please DON'T LET THIS BLOG BE THE REASON YOU ARE FORCED into ending up anywhere. If the restaurant doesn’t have what you want, please FEEL FREE TO WALK AWAY.)
