This is a great alternative for a carinderia. Very accessible as it is along Session Road. It may be too crowdy from 5pm onwards.

Baguio has many restaurants but it is hard to find a one that suits Western tourists. The Star Cafe is a good choice.

Sad to hear that the last owner-manager passed away recently and the rest of the family weren't interested in pursuing this Baguio tradition. Doubly sad that the establishment that replaced it is a fashion store selling atrocious-looking merchandise. Glad I had a final visit last year.

Went up to Baguio to eat at this food institution one last time. I grew up going to Star Cafe and it was absolutely sad to see it go. I just love their food.

I'm not from Baguio so I've been wanting to eat here, and feast on its star dishes, only to find out that it is closed on Sundays. :-(

The food has stayed consistent all these years. We enjoyed the Chinese food, especially the lumpia shanghai and the cinnamon rolls. But alas, the cafe will be closed on July 8.

Food was good and plentiful. The waiters were kind and helpful. Even the cashier thanked us on our way out. I ordered he pancit lomi and best selling Star rice topping. Just read that Star Cafe will close this July. All I can say is "Noooooooooooooooooo!!!!!"
