Batangas: Cafeno Coffee House

Going to Laiya, Batangas for a weekend getaway? Don’t forget to stopy by Cafeno at the Poblacion at San Juan Batangas. Cafeno is located at the intersection near Puregold and Petron, one street before you turn right to go to Laiya.

It is a charming bahay mestizo-type structure (ground floor was made of stone and 2nd floor was made of wood) that used to be a gas station before it was converted to a cafe. Our med friend who was training near the area said that it is mandatory for us to visit the place, so we dropped by the cafe before going to La Luz.

The interior was very cozy. It was as if time stopped during the mid 1900s.

We ordered Waffle with Ice Cream which was homemade Vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two pieces of crispy waffle.

We also ordered their freshly brewed Barako Classic.

We liked the place so much that we dropped by the place before going home to try the champorado that our friend recommended.

The champorado came with fried banana halves and some tuyo. Apparently, the tuyo is there to enhance the taste of the champorado, but my friend ended up eating the tuyo on its own.

I am already missing the champorado and Barako Classic. I will definitely drop by again next time.
