Coffee Break by the Lake at Cafe Lago

A small rustic cafe situated in a quiet location facing Sampaloc Lake, Cafe Lago is cozier and lovelier in the evenings.  However, due to schedule conflicts, I decided to visit the cafe in the morning where fewer customers are expected.

The courtyard
The cafe, which is also part of the famed Viaje del Sol, is very charming and unassuming. It has a small courtyard suited for intimate gatherings. Lush foliage surrounds the cafe inside and out.  They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The interiors are beautifully painted

Having a break by the lake is really soothing.  A combination of fresh air and a relaxed atmosphere will definitely calm your nerves.  You don't need to order expensive meals!  An expensive (for me) 45-peso cup of coffee will do.

How to get here

From Cubao/Pasay/Manila, ride buses plying for the Lucena/Bicol route.  Ask the conductor to drop off you off at the fork in San Pablo going to the town proper.  Ride a jeepney with signage San Pablo at Php 8 each. From the fork or from the town proper itself, you can hire a trike going to Tahanan Ni Aling Meding.  You can also walk from here going towards  Sampaloc Lake.  Facing Sampaloc Lake, walk to your left and you will find Cafe Lago several lots before Tahanan Ni Aling Meding.

  2. Oh wow, look at that. Looks quaint! I really have a penchant for places like this.

    Classic, nagkakape over a homey place. Looks breezy. One now has to wonder kung ano 'yung best-sellers nila diyan.

    1. Well the menu does not have really that much to boast but it's a perfect place to unwind and bond over coffee with long-lost friends.
