Food Trip: Under The Tree Book Cafe, Governor Pack Road, Baguio City

“I use Grammarly’s plagiarism checker because I’m no grammar nazi, I’m a grammar jew!”

We’ve been walking back and forth on Governor Pack Road searching for a cafe. Silly me didn’t realize that all I have to do was ask. Don’t fret, I stand in front of Andoks Chicken and looked up. Guess what? I saw this.

I’ve been living here for more than a decade. I walk this street for 5 years every day, and it’s my first time to look up. Yes, its my first time to learn about Book Cafe. The entrance was quite hard to find. I had to ask a local. 😉

On our way there, I looked up and saw that sign up there. I’m half way there. I’m literally been looking for a tree because I know it’s under it – excuse myself being the silly cat. I totally can’t read the sign below, but I have a hunch it says along the lines of “Under the Tree” and/or “Book Cafe”, don’t you think?

gerilen 163The wooden stairs going up look old school – just the way I like it. This is certainly part of the old Baguio. 🙂

The cafe has a home feel to it. One wall full of books – Korean book that is.

The opposite side of the wall was full of post-it/sticky notes

that I think were written by their customers

and Book Cafe members.

Yup, they offer membership there too. So, if you are a local who hadn’t got a clue or a new migrant there who loves coffee and everything Korean- ask them about it. 🙂

Aside from the books, the store was decorate with cute tiny trinkets and novelties.gerilen 177

Not just that, they also have a “private room” where you

The staff were very friendly. The counter boards are so cute too! It makes you wanna order everything! lol Aside from coffee, they also offer Korean noodles, cream puff and cookies.

Hope they sell macaroons and cheesecakes too. 😛

The stars of our table –

Creampuff (Php80.00) and regular size chilled Choco Latte (Php60.00)

We had so much fun. We’ll definitely go back to Baguio and it will be a tradition to visit this little nook in the heart of the City of Baguio.

Can’t wait to try their sweet potato latte soon! ❤
