The Coffee Library is a new cafe in Baguio City which specializes in Vietnamese and Italian coffees. The cafe opened last December 10, 2015 making it the newest cafe in Baguio City. Our recent visit to Baguio was very timely to their opening, and we were one of the first ones to try this newest hangout place in Baguio.
It is located at the ground floor of Rex Hall Student Residences and near Saint Louis University, Baguio Cathedral and City Lights Hotel. Away from the touristy places in the city, most of the guests here are locals. Being located beside a students residence and near the university, The Coffee Library caters mainly to college students, the young and the hip.
The cafe's interior design is dominated with wood and bricks, giving it a warm and cozy ambiance. While most of the tables can sit two to four persons, there's also a lounge area ideal for bigger groups and long tables which are perfect for study groups. To make things even more awesome, especially for the students, The Coffee Library offers free WiFi Internet access inside the cafe, perfect for those who are doing online research for a paper or a report.
Service is very efficient. The staff is very friendly and will accommodate any inquiry on their coffee and food. They are also well trained to provide recommendations to visiting guests.

We watched Stephen as he prepare their best-selling drink. It's basically the same iced Vietnamese coffee only with the sweet and semi-sour taste of the yogurt. It is refreshing to the palate. The sticky rice is half cooked and provided extra flavor to the drink. A wooden spoon is provided so you can scoop out the sticky rice after you have finished your coffee. It's a unique experience which you can only have here at The Coffee Library.

How to get to The Coffee Library
The easiest way of course is by taxi. Just tell the driver to bring you to Rex Hall along Upper Bonifacio Street and near City Lights Hotel. The cafe is on the ground floor facing the street. If you are coming from the Baguio Cathedral, the cafe is just short walk. Exit the cathedral at Fr. Carlu Street. Walk to the left side of the street. Turn left on the third corner onto Upper Bonifacio Street. The cafe would be on your right side right after the intersection.
