After our lunch at Forest House, Bin, Boo and I pulled over for coffee at the PNKY Café. PNKY is known for their quality wood carvings and wood furniture, so I was intrigued with their idea of a café. They also now have a bed and breakfast, something I’d like to try out one day.
It did not disappoint. I’ll let the photos do the talking for me. This place was so cute, for lack of a better word. It wasn’t kitschy or trying to be something it wasn’t. It just was. From the Monet print menu to their flower-painted counter, to their line of cups hanging from the window border, everything was so picture-worthy. Loved it.
This was PNKY Café’s version of apple pie, although it’s more of an apple crisp. It was good, although it’s one of those dishes that came to the table looking vastly different from what I imagined it to be.
This was my café latté and a plate of cookies which were so small. Each cookie is only P3, so I guess the size is fair. They were nice and crunchy, but left me wanting more. Notice the sugar containers at the back — one for regular white sugar and the other one for muscovado sugar.
I was so enchanted with the containers that I had to take a close-up photo of them. Aren’t those wooden spoons just precious? Muscovado is a dark, unrefined product that separates from molasses. It has purported health benefits, but I’ve read that the body can’t tell the difference between simple and complex sugars. Sugar is sugar.
Lastly, here’s a picture of the glass jug they serve water in at PNKY Café. Those are basil leaves which flavor the water and give it a slightly spicy taste. With the cool Baguio air, the effect is cleansing and revitalizing.
