This Cabin-Like Coffee Shop In The South Has Strong Baguio Vibes
It's even surrounded by pine trees!
Out-of-town food trips are one of the best things you can do in your free time. Not only does it satisfy your cravings but it also satisfies your need for a break from the hustle of the city. If you want to discover more of what the south has to offer, you should check out Loghouse Cafe in Lipa, Batangas.
The Loghouse Cafe has a strong Baguio feel or vibe to it. It's a wooden lodge surrounded by towering pine trees, a common sight to see in the City of Pines, but not so common in the south.
The inside of the cafe feels extra cozy with the wood interiors and the mix of warm and natural lighting. As for their al fresco dining area, they have tables with umbrellas to provide shade but you can also choose to sit at the table and bench the cafe placed surrounding the trunk of a pine tree.
One of the things that stand out on the Loghouse Cafe menu is the absence of rice meals. They don't serve any rice but what you can order are other satisfying comfort foods like pasta, burgers, and sandwiches. Their Loghouse Special (P440) has slices of the classic, can-do-no-wrong Excellente Ham with a drizzle of honey sauce and sandwiched in between Jerusalem Bagels, which are oval-shaped bagels with honeyed sesame topping.
If you want something lighter, you can order the cafe's salad, wraps, nachos, and fries, or go ahead and jump straight to dessert. Loghouse Cafe has a Tri-Chocolate Mousse (P215), Oreo Choco Mousse (P215), Peanut Butter Pie (P215), Chocolate Pie (P215), and Strawberry Cheesecake (P215). They also have a gelato (P175) in different flavors such as Chocolate, Cappuccino, Hazelnut, and French Vanilla.
For the coffee menu, the cafe covers the basics, from Americano, latte, cappuccino, and ice-blended drinks. They also have Kapeng Barako (P125/espresso, P135/iced), which makes sense since they're located in Batangas where the coffee beans are commonly grown.
Here's the Loghouse Cafe menu:
Loghouse Cafe is located at 18 Receno Compound, Gen. Luna St, Lipa, Batangas. The establishment is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday; they are closed on Mondays.
