Get Your Dose of Caffeine and Inspiration
It’s the end of the week again and this only means one thing–it’s time for that long-awaited break you’ve wanted since Monday. So what can you do? Why not try cafe hopping, a pastime growing in popularity here in Baguio City. With cafes popping out here and there like mushrooms, it’s difficult to choose where to go first. This week, why not try Quoted Cafe?
Quoted Cafe: Feed Your Stomach and Your Mind
Need some inspiration while sipping your favorite cup of coffee? Look nowhere else, you’ve hit jackpot in this place. Filled with proverbs, sayings, and quotes of all types, Quoted Cafe will give you the words of wisdom you need to hear (because probably, your friends can’t say them to you directly).
The area is quite spacious. You can choose to dine inside if you want to be surrounded by aesthetic pieces and pieces of advice (Get it?). For those who prefer more air and a lighter ambience, the seats outside are perfect for you.
Delectable and Savory
Pick your taste: soup, salad, appetizers, sandwiches, pasta and there’s a bunch more! Going for a morning grind? You can order their breakfast meals. They serve both Filipino and Western breakfasts like Baguio Garlic Longganisa and Bacon, Eggs, and Toast, respectively.
Pesto Fettuccine, 150PHP
For those who just want some time to chill and catch up with friends, their salads and appetizers are highly recommended. They are enough to fill your stomach and you can eat them without any hassle. Now that’s finger-lickin’ awesome! Some of the favorite treats from these categories are Chicken Caesar Salad, Crunchy Taco Salad, Calamari Fries, and Chili Cheese Fries.
Quench Your Thirst
Other than the snacks and meals, their array of hot and cold drinks will soothe your throat. Everyone will enjoy their selection as they serve both coffeinated and non-caffeinated beverages. They have coffee, tea, fresh fruits shakes and latte. For those who don’t have a sweet tooth (like our foreign students studying English), you might want to ask the staff if they can reduce the amount of sugar. Based from personal experience, some drinks may be too sweet for you to handle.
Their foods range from 100PHP to 215PHP while their drinks are from 45PHP to 145PHP. Not bad since some of these are actually good for sharing with one more person.
Look Around and Pose
Quoted Cafe has typography scattered all over the place. These are good finds for Instagram lovers and art enthusiasts. Portions of the walls are also good for your next OOTD (outfit of the day) location.
A space is also allotted for arts and crafts collectors. Assorted paper products, pins, and more are shelved neatly. You can buy a souvenir or two for your artsy friends or for your friends who need some sunshine in their lives. Following the main theme of the cafe, the products have some uplifting and positive messages written on them.
The place is oozing with good vibes. Want to see more? Visit the place for yourself and have meaningful chats with someone while sipping your favorite drink. Maybe you’ll even find your next SNS photo caption from one of their quotes!
