"It's small enough to miss. But once you slow down, you'll be glad you did. Not many people know about this place, which is probably why we like coming back here. If you want to get away from all the "hustle and bustle" of your hectic life, this would be a nice little place to hide out. Why? One, they have a cafe that serves wicked nice coffee ( hot and strong, or cold and sweet ) with a small gallery featuring works of local artists and jazz music. Two, they've got a small B&B with four bedrooms and it follow that the rooms come with breakfast. Now, how can you not relax after all that?
Inside the cafe is the small gallery called Sining sa Sahig, so called because the art is displayed on the floor owing to the cafe's low-ceiling. You can either have the brew inside the snug wooden floored cafe or outside, as you watch the cars pass by. Either way, contemplation and relaxation is guaranteed. The cafe not only serves java, but a variety of cold drinks and hot meals from pastas to sandwiches, and pastries. If you want to take away some of that coffee back to the city, that can be arranged as well. In the meantime, when you're here, really be here. Never be in any hurry to soak up the atmosphere where it's nippy and calm."
