We recently wrote an article about different Sagada restaurants that we had tried; but according to a few netizens, the 8 restaurants in this article are the ones that we should have tried. Suffice to say: these restaurants are now on our list for our next visit!
7 Restaurants and Cafes You Should Try in Sagada
7. Gaia Cafe and Crafts
According to netizen Appaul Ponciano, Sagada is not only where broken hearts go; it’s a food haven, too. Although Gaia is touted to be a vegan and vegetarian restaurant, the food is so good that even people who love meat will appreciate it and maybe even love it. Appaul says, “Gaia is a must-try in Sagada. It’s a little far from the tourism office, but it’s worth it. Promise!”
The best part is that they have an amazing view to boast of! Plus, they have a crafts shop where they sell home-made food products, woven items, Igorot publications and even all-natural skincare products.

6. Misty Lodge and Cafe
Misty Lodge is primarily a hotel, but they also have a cafe. If you love places with a cozy and homey ambiance, netizen Inz Cantong recommends this one.
You may even book a horse near Kiltepan and ride around town after hitting Misty Lodge’s cafe if you want. Apparently, some of the horses stop by Misty Lodge, so you can get a glimpse of them before deciding if you want to horseback-ride or not.

5. Sagada Brew
While Sagada Brew is a restaurant with delicious savoury food and coffee, most people flock to the place for their delicious desserts. So, if you have a sweet tooth, this is the place to go in Sagada. Inz says their lava cake is a must-try, while others have also mentioned their salted caramel cake.
It seems that everybody agrees that Sagada Brew rocks as they won the 2015 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor for the consistently great reviews given by TripAdvisor travellers.

Yoghurt House offers American, Asian and Filipino food, but netizen Donalyn Sanqui says it’s their roasted eggplant in basil pasta that makes her want to go back to Sagada just thinking about it.
3. Log Cabin
Netizen Dom Minie recommends going to Log Cabin, a restaurant that offers American food and is only open for dinner. On Saturdays, you can also enjoy a dinner buffet for Php390 per head.

Netizen Gae Murillo recommends Lucky’s Shanghai Hauz. As the name suggests, Lucky’s Shanghai Hauz offers Chinese food, including shanghai rolls and homemade pork siomai. However, a lot of people also rave about their Sagada-style sinigang.
Although small, people keep coming back to Lucky’s, proving that good food and friendly service can go a long way. For those who want to enjoy some karaoke, Lucky’s also has a videoke bar in the back.
