Alfoncito’s place is one of the newest eats in Baguio City. They specialize in coffee, pastries and pasta. But for me, the best treat is how the staff treat you like family. A big part of eating out is who you’re with – and the folks at Alfoncito’s surely make you feel full with their TLC and attention.
Here’s their Christmas set-up. Not seen is a sign that says it’s a gadget-free place — which means — use every piece of decoration they have as a conversation piece. 🙂 They’ve got lots of those.
I recommend their signature hot chocolate drink. Topped with a generous serving of whipped cream and sprinkled with cinnamon, it’s one awesome drink perfect for the chilly Baguio holiday climate. And thank you Alfoncito’s for refilling my whipped cream!
So for my New Year’s Resolution- I’m going to be more attentive to names. Haha. This is what I ordered. I think it’s called Barbecue Spare Ribs with Mashed Potato and Pasta. It was mostly pasta and a bit of ribs. Lately my diet has been quite the opposite – so , if you like me are looking for more protein than carbs, Canto is the place to be. But for your pasta cravings- Alfoncito’s it is! It’s a generous serving of pasta with cream sauce and is meant to be shared. I would share this with my nieces, most definitely. Very kid-friendly taste.
I went with lamon buddies Aguinaya and Vee. Vee ordered this – it’s salad and pasta topped with herbed chicken served with garlic bread. Compared to mine, it’s one very refreshing meal. I really liked the smell of the rosemary of the herbed chicken.
But wait, there’s more! That was just Vee’s pre-meal! She ordered this customized meal. She replaced the set pasta with her pasta of choice below. Very cool of Alfoncito’s to give in to Vee’s diva request. haha!
Not to be outdone, Aguinaya ordered their Pesto specialty. I think what you’ll like about Alfoncito’s is the serving size of the pasta. While many restaurants scrimp on the pasta, Alfoncitos simply gives :). It was a little too salty for our taste buds but the herbiness of the chicken balanced it out.
Another thing that Alfoncito’s takes pride in is their pastry collection. For the holidays, they’ve made these cute treats available for orders.
I went home with bag of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies – best shared with friends with an equally big appetite for this comfort food. And in a nutshell, that’s what Alfconcito’s place is to me- comfort food (and drink) central! They’ve also got a lot of fine looking beverages on their menu. Those oatmeal shakes look yum. Definitely will get that next time.
At the time we visited, we were the only patrons there and it was a cool privilege to speak with the staff/owner of the place. They are an Italian cafe with a big heart and equally big pasta servings! 🙂 Now you know where to go the next time you get a pasta craving.

But if you’re too lazy to click: They are located at the lower ground floor ( I call it basement) of EDY building along Kisad Road, right where Starwood Hotel and the big ass Crown Legacy Hotel is at. 😀
