The Coffee Library

If you’re a fan of rustic themed cafe, The Coffee Library is your place chill and fill.

Situated at a distant building away from the loud tourists, this restaurant is perfect for “Me Time”, or even for group study.

It is located at the ground floor of Rex Hall Student Residence near Saint Louis University for these reasons; most of their guests are students, hippies and young professionals.

Note: Complete address at the end of this blog.

The place is curated with very warm design, composed of bricks and fine furnished woods. Table setups can accommodate two to four persons; long tables are available good for group and family, more? They are giving the WiFi password to whoever needs it. (Yay!)

Asian fusion is the forte of The Coffee Library, from Vietnam’s Spring Rolls and Pho Bo, Italian Coffee and Filipino fame dishes.

Vietnamese Noodles [Pho Bo] w/ Sriracha and Oyster sauce
I’ll have to start with their Pho Bo. Definitely a take down and a must try on your next visit to Baguio. I have tried a lot of Pho from different restaurant, but sure do The Coffee Library’s take on this dish will get itself on your top list. 😀

Also their Spring Rolls, their home made sticky rice wrapper is something new for me. Tastes good with their special mix of spicy sauce dip that goes on the side.

Their Kare-Kare (Beef Stew) is commendable, usually the quality of anchovies and how it was prepared gives a big say on the whole dish. This one never failed my standards for this dish.

Next is TCL Cheese Burger, made from 100% pure grilled beef patty (yup, no extenders), cheese, onion, tomato and greens. What made this burger extra special is how I made my version of it, I took lots of their fries on the side and put it on the burger and spread more tomato ketchup. Voila! Yummeh!

Aside from the Phos and Burger, if you’re a fan of spicy chicken, they have Buffalo Wings! I am personally challenge with the stickiness of this one, but hey, once you tried it, I bet you would feel the same and would say, “There’s no turning back!” Haha

It has good and enough spice of chilly which is good for sharing, perfect with the blue cheese dip that goes with it.

It would be obvious from their name that good coffee are served here. A wide variety of coffees from Turkish, Italian, and Vietnamese. If you’re reducing your caffein in take and opt for a sweet treat, try their cold drinks and the all time Pinoy pride, Halo-halo!

Iced Tea Drinks and Halo-halo!

Over all, The Coffee Library is a big check! Perfect place for family and friends, and the rustic interiors plus their diverse menu, selections of hot and cold drinks, this place is a sure place to go back.
