Best Ilocos Cafe & Coffee Shops
1995 Studio Cafe
Do you feel famished or thirsty after loitering around Calle Crisologo and want to rest somewhere air-conditioned and refreshing after a hot day?
Then I recommend you to take a rest here at 1995 Studio Cafe, as this cafe stands near the end of this famous historical site. I recommend ordering the crepes! For sure, you’ll feel re-energized for your next spot in your itinerary!
If you’re at Candon City and want to try out some of their local cuisines, then you’ll surely love Cafe Bossa!
Sip some coffee while appreciating various antique and modern art strewn around the place along with a nostalgic ambience of this antiquarian cafe, you’d feel like you’re relaxing at an art museum!
A cafe that could make you feel like you went back to the Spanish era; to when Vigan was first founded. Isn’t that exciting?
Along with various Ilocano dishes and coffee with complimentary balikutsa as a sweetener, you’d definitely love the preserved-and-antiquated-home aesthetic this cafe offers! They have two menus, so surely you won’t run out of food you want to try!
Coffee Break – Vigan
An all-time favourite of the locals (I highly recommend this place as this is also my favourite especially on rainy days!).
With decent portions of pasta, nachos, and sandwiches, this cafe is the perfect place to hang out with your friends, go out on dates, or even when you want me-time! It’s conveniently located right at the centre of Calle Crisologo, so if you feel rather light-headed from your tour, be sure to visit!
Coffee Break – San Vicente
It may seem biassed that I included two Coffee Breaks here in this article, but I assure you, this franchise is worth the spot!
As Coffee Break in Calle Crisologo is located right in the hustle and bustle of the city, Coffee Break in San Vicente sends you out to a fresher and greener site that makes it worth the trip! Sip your coffee while enjoying the singing of birds and the fluttering of butterflies!
Vibrant lights, a starry night, and the sound of crickets whilst sipping on some hot tea? What could be more relaxing than that?
A coffee shop that stays open until late night is the perfect place to hang out with friends after a long day. Not only do they offer coffee and tea, but also beers and cocktails! But of course, drink responsibly. Don’t give the staff any trouble!
Good Vibes Cafe
Delicious? Check! Affordable? Check! Vegetarian? Super check!
A cafe with the most gorgeous food and drink items you’ll ever see. Instagrammable, aesthetically pleasing, and so hard to take a bite out of, because you won’t want to ruin the beautiful masterpiece in front of you! And the best part is? No animals were harmed in the making of these foods.
Inong’s Yard Restaurant & Cafe
Looking for a relaxing Al-fresco cafe with a beautiful farm vibe? Then try out Inong’s Yard Restaurant & Cafe!
A budget-friendly outdoor cafe with generous servings great for sharing with friends and family! But if you’re alone, that doesn’t change the fact that you can still enjoy being here. A serene view while you sip on your coffee would surely help you be relaxed! Watch out for their discounts from their page!
Craving for that Ilocano-style dessert and coffee? I got just the place for you! Marsha’s Delicacies is not only the go-to place for a relaxing afternoon with your choice of coffee, but they also sell a wide array of pasalubongs!
A trip to Vigan isn’t really complete without a visit to Marsha’s Delicacies. It’s usually the last stop in most itineraries! Going home with a piece of delicious Ilocano-style snacks is the way to go!
Moon Cafe by Zeph
Going out to a cafe to drink some coffee is already a reward in itself, but what if I tell you that this particular cafe in Banayoyo offers way more than just taste?
Moon Cafe by Zeph has a ton of drinks you can choose from with a surprisingly affordable cost despite how great it tastes. But the best part is the visuals! Be it their latte art or the presentation of their frappes, these instagrammable drinks would send you over the moon with its delicious flavours!
