Let’s Eat: Cafe Sabel (Benguet)

“There is no sincerer love than the love of food.” – George Bernard Shaw


What I personally like in a restaurant is good (cost-effective) food and homey ambiance, And these merits Cafe Sabel, the in-house restaurant of the awe-inspiring BenCab Museum. The resto was name after BenCab’s celebrated muse in his paintings.


FYI: Sabel, a vaganbond who represents misery and seclusion, was often seen by the artist roving the streets of Manila. She eventually became an inspirationand a big influence to his works that he even decided to name the museum’s café after her.


Café Sabel has a very relaxing ambiance. The homey vibe is attributed to its colourful chairs, long wooden tables, awesome art pieces and the refreshing view of mountains, verdant surroundings, the museum’s garden and duck pond. A perfect place to enjoy Baguio’s cool breeze.


The food the restaurant offers are fresh and organic. I was told that the ingredients are from BenCab’s organic farm. They also sell jams, marmalades, native chocolate, coffee and homemade pickles.


Cafe Sabel is definitely a perfect match to the BenCab Museum experience. The café is open daily except Mondays, Christmas Day & New Year’s Day, from 9:00am to 6:00pm (last entry is at 5:30pm).
