Starbucks Coffee at Camp John Hay, Baguio City
Being a Starbucks fan, I always make sure to drop by a local branch wherever there's one. It was my first time to visit this Starbucks branch located inside Camp John Hay. The architecture of this house greatly emphasizes Starbucks as an American café. I would say, it was a perfect match.
After enjoying the cool breeze outside, we entered the store and we were welcomed by the aroma of freshly brewed coffee. When at Starbucks, I usually stay inside the coffee shop. But here at Camp John Hay, I didn't mind sitting at the porch to enjoy my drink, al fresco.
People in Baguio are the most hospitable people I met. I instantly had three new Facebook friends. After a refreshing drink, I admired once again the sunny sky and the pine-scented breeze before heading back to the hotel. Starbucks at Camp John Hay has become one of my very few favorite Starbucks branches.
How we went there (and back)
Like anywhere in Baguio City, Starbucks Camp John Hay is easily accessible through taxi. From Baguio City center, it will only take 10 minutes to reach the store. Going back to downtown is equally convenient as taxis do pass by the cafe from time to time.
