ILI-LIKHA ARTIST WATERING HOLE BAGUIO and the wonderful "Scout Barrows Cafe".

Combine the artisan interior and accessibility of Oh My Gulay and the village feels of Tam-Awan and you have a watering hole that is wonder both to the senses and the palate.

It's about the space, being more of a sprawling location, the diversity of cafes and restaurants
and the more sophisticated artwork in a wonderful maze and a downtown location.

Of course I am not discrediting one over the other. I still the abovementioned spaces but this place just behind Baguio Cathedral is the lastest addition of vibe that only a UNESCO CREATIVE CITY that is Baguio could offer. This is the brainchild of National artist Kidlat Tahimik.

You don't need to be an artist to appreciate this place. For me to describe it as a "sanctuary in the city" , a "safe space" or "peaceful place" are not enough to encompass what it feels like being there. It is also a happy place. Parang pagpasok mo sa entrance naka-teleport ka into another dimension tapos may trill kasi di mo alam ano makikita baka hakbang mo so may element of excitement tapos interesante yung mga shops, both the restos/cafes and yung mga goods stores. At may kakaibang sinehan pa!

Food and drinks can be enjoyed anywhere within Ili-Likha Artists' Watering Hole. In short, pwede kang bunmili sa ibang shops tapos hanap ka ng lugar mo na kakaininan. Yun ang maganda dito, at talagang chill kung chill.

Ito yung mga inorder namin.

grilled cheese dandwich with four types of cheeses: mozzarella, eden, american cheddar and cream cheese with homemade tomato jam


graham dust and fudge brownie topped with marshmallows

their own version of bullet coffee, house blend coffee with butter, virgin coconut oil and cinnamon

Lahat satisfied kami sa lasa pero talagang tumatak yung chizmozza at firesmores. Babalik-balikan-level sila so talagang favorite namin pumunta dito everytime umaakyat kami sa Baguio.

Address: 32 Assumption Road 2600 Baguio City, Philippine, sa likod lang to mismo ng Baguio Cathedral. Bandang gitna ng University of Baguio at Session Road along Assumption road.
