Quite far from the city center, but a a must visit if you prefer a quiet, peaceful place for a cup of coffee with nature feels. Don't expect much with the food though, nothing special with the taste. Unless I have a car and want a quiet place outside the busy city life, not worth going back. Good to visit... More

arca's yard is among baguio's hidden spots to dine and lodge... ive had the experience of staying here before and i wouldn't really recommend it for a number of reasons. 1. there is no proper parking. only parking is on the sidewalk. 2. there is no security personel, in case you're coming home late you have to close the gate...

Good place and ambiance. Kinda suffocating inside due to the smell and smoke while they're preping the food. The veranda offered a good view!

Food is not that good. The camote pie (which is highly recommended), without the ice cream is hardly edible. No parking space. You need to park by the road side. The ambience is okay. A lot of interesting items on display which showcase the rich culture of the people in the Cordillera. Service needs to be improved. We requested for... More

A haven for a quiet afternoon, Arca's Yard Cafe is a treasure trove of pleasant surprises. The decor was a mix of rustic meets 'library in the attic' - all very comforting and inviting. The menu was an interesting mix of dishes and drinks with Arca's Cloud Tea among its must try concoctions. They don't kid around with their heat... More

Most of the ingredients are gathered right at their backyard. Oriental salad is a must-try... you could also try their pasta and pies... I was not impressed with their rice meals though...

Food is very affordable and tasty. Stayed there the whole afternoon since my trip back to Manila got cancelled. You can read there books to keep yourself entertained and just order coffee. :) Arca is a must visit! Recommend this place to several friends and they love it too!

Enjoyable environment away from the crowds in town. They have a beautiful view. The food was good with moderate portion sizes. Parking could be difficult as there is just a few spots on the road side. I was there during the off season so it wasn't a problem for me.

I spent my birthday treat here with one of my closest friends. We enjoy the food with a forest view at the veranda. There are native arts and artifacts to explore.

this new restaurant in BAGUIO is getting overrated. i'm not saying the place is bad. it is good for first timers. arts seen in the area are cool. food is served fast and delicious. but it takes time to place an order for there is like 1 or 2 taking orders. the place also needs improvements.
