afe by the Ruins (since 1988) recently opened up a new branch on Upper Session Road (right beside Mario’s). This extension is called Cafe by the Ruins Dua (dua, meaning “two” in Ilokano), and Baguio natives have fondly nicknamed it Cafe Dua.
To you old Cafe by the Ruins loyalists, fret not because Dua is still the same old Cafe you have grown to love through the years, except it is now more modern-looking in terms of facilities, The bigger Dua branch is also in charge of producing and supplying Cafe by the Ruins’ pasalubong and bakery products: bread selection (Ernie’s kamote bread, Ensaymada, Whole Wheat Pan de Sal, etc.) and deli meats (home-smoked bacon, lamb sausage, longganisa, etc.). It is located in 25 Shuntug Street, Baguio City
First time trying out Cafe by the Ruins since we failed to do it last Panagbenga.
I didn’t expect that the place would be like that. Since it’s like a small bakery from the outside.
The place is nice and has a homey feeling. Wooden interiors, wine and bread on display.

One of the best places to have breakfast in Baguio is Cafe by the Ruins so without second thought we immediately went there to know why. I suggest you go here before you start your day activities in the city. I love its charm and rustic interior design. I find the meals to be a bit expensive like the longsilog for PHP340.00. It comes with a big serving of marinated pork cubes and egg, one cup of red rice, drink of your choice, and fresh fruits. The staff is attentive and courteous, which makes dining really comfortable.
