UPDATE: Barn Cafe
With a P3 meeting long overdue (Sure, we were just complete at BamBenny but with a friendship like this, once a month doesn’t really cover it. Used to be, it was an everyday meeting with texting as if we didn’t meet at all after our dinner/standing around in front of Chow King “waiting” for a taxi =b); Beth, Karla and I made up for lost time by spending the whole day together.
(Essentially, we didn’t plan it that way … or maybe, Beth did who was going ka-ching with dividends *hihi) When we thought about where to hang out, the Barn Cafe popped up in my mind as the perfect place since it’s both not that far and not that near town. They had foodstuff I still wanted to try out and also, they had a cozy and nice looking establishment.
I was sure they would be open at 8:00 a.m but when we got there, the door and the gate were still closed and as a back up plan, P3+1 walked a little further up to Ebai’s Cafe and Pastry for breakfast.
Like I said, we were making up for lost time. So when lunch got close enough, we (P3-1 now) decided to check back at the Barn.
Since they just opened, we had our pick of the tables. The solitary staff member that day told us, however, that we could take a seat upstairs (it was just a boutique on my first visit) so that’s where we planted ourselves.
UPDATE 08/23/2014: Barn Cafe that I knew of on the writing of this post (2013) had since turned into a real bar today (as per a comment left under the first feature post on Barn Cafe, by an anonymous food quester), proceed with caution, if you’re planning on coming here now for the ambiance.
While our attendant prepared our orders, we went all girly with the stuff in the Barn boutique and looked at clothes on the racks, the shoes, the accessories and various other trinkets they had for sale.
We weren’t quite done with the shopping when our attendant came with our drinks. Good timing, it was getting hot up at the second floor (because it was midday and we were so confused about which top, which dress, which book, etc. to get *hee).
Of course, our meeting has to be documented with photos.
This is what we had for lunch.
Beth got herself the fish and chips which was still deliciously un-fishy with yummy potatoes and a tangy tartar dipping sauce. =D
When we finished our (light) lunch =)), we moved downstairs for our dessert. There’s no need to ask questions about what we got. We were at the Barn so we got something from Krispy Kreme – their truffle kremes.
Ahh, what a fun time P3 had at the Barn Cafe. *contented sighs
Service: and to our attendant. He knows us so well. “Mga girls talaga.”, he says about our shopping frenzy. AHA! So that’s why you made (not really, we wanted to) us sit in the second floor! (“,) Thank you again for being so accommodating (with my phototaking OCD in particular).

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.)
