Are you looking for some fresh air away from the city, a unique dinner experience, or just a place to have a good time? Enjoy all three at Cafe Ipil-Ipil, a hole-in-the-wall (or on-the-hill) kind of diner which is sure make your dinner a delight!
Cafe Ipil-Ipil along Cebu Transcentral Highway offers diners a refreshing experience of eating among the trees and under the stars. Their tables are set in a sloped clearing on the side of a mountain and in the midst of tall trees. This setting gives off a vibe of being immersed in the forest and one with the mountain. The tables, chairs, and benches made of bamboo, rattan, and different types of wood further add to the feeling of being one with the woods.
Diners can choose to sit higher up the slopes to enjoy a breath-taking backdrop of the mountains of Barangay Pulang Bato while eating. Imagine being served scrumptious food while admiring such an amazing view. Now, that’s something not a lot of places offer!
While there’s a feast for your eyes, the cafe also serves food and drink perfect for all kinds of company. Whether you’re out with friends, eating solo, or spending a romantic evening with your partner, you’re sure to enjoy their hot meals and fresh fruit smoothies. They even serve several cocktails that will spice up your evening even more, and if you’d rather stay off the alcohol, you can refresh with their Ipil-Ipil mocktails.
Should you decide to eat here (and you really should!), it helps to know that this next-level experience does not come with a high-level price range. Their food and drinks are all affordable – ranging from 20 to 100 pesos only per order. You can get a full meal with drinks for just under 200 pesos!
They say that the days are short in the mountains. Sure enough, nighttime comes quicker thanks to the trees and the shade from the mountain itself. However, Cafe Ipil-Ipil has already made sure you’ll still enjoy your meal after the sun has set. The lightbulbs and string lights around the cafe make sure it’s bright enough for diners to eat, walk around, and even take pictures. If anything, the cafe transforms from breath-taking in the day to cozy at night.
The next time you’re looking for a place to breathe cool mountain air, eat good food, and soak in the ambience, make sure to visit Cafe Ipil-Ipil in Cebu!
