Coffee-houses in the City of Pines: Yagam and Gossip

Literal coffeehouses, we’ve got for today’s photoblog post with their origins as homes converted into establishments now selling food and coffee (with a couple non caffeinated selections for the insomniacs out there *heehaha).  We could say they’re probably the most homey coffee shops in Baguio.

My C Boutique Hotel Diet

“A diet is when you watch what you eat and wish you could eat what you watch.” ~ Hermione Gingold

Luckily for me, I must have won some kind of jackpot in the genetics/metabolism lottery that I could afford to be on a “see food diet” – a phrase coined by my sister which means “I see the food, I eat the food”.  (Although heaven knows how much I cross my fingers and mantra that I wouldn’t wake up one day with everything I ever ate catching up with me. *POOF I go, in my imagination. Perish the thought =D)  .

The Axes Food Effect

It’s not always me keeping a lookout for a good place in Baguio City to get sustenance.  You could say that I’m operating with the Wonder Years opening theme in my head, going, ♪ ♫ I get by with a little help from my friends ♪.  (It’s even more so today, than before I started this blog as you’ll see in a little while. =D)

On one of the days that I put myself on house arrest, Race brought home, not the bacon but dishes from Axes Cafe and Panciteria. (I’m so happy restaurants are popping up in the Wright Park vicinity. Used to be, we had to go back to town after a riding frenzy just to get something good to eat. ^^,)  From the moment, we transported the food into the proper containers, the sight of it and the smell of it gave me a tingle. Oohhh, the Axes effect!

Race brought home … Axes Cafe food =)

I had such a fine time with both selections that I insisted I see (and eat at) the eatery for myself. Axes was Read More…
