It’s located inside Camp John Hay. If you're coming from the city, you can just take a cab going here. Our cab ride was only 69 pesos from SM Baguio. You could opt to go down at the Camp John Hay gate and just walk to the place, it’s good exercise with a great view of the fresh pine trees. It’s easy to go back to the city proper because there’s a waiting shed by the gate where the cabs are.

At the place, they have chairs and tables outside wherein you can breathe and feel the cold fresh air or you could also stay indoor to keep you warm. The ambiance of the place is very nice because you get to appreciate the beauty of Baguio.

They have food for Breakfast, Lunch, Merienda and Dinner. Their servings are usually good for 2-3 persons. It’s best to ask the waiter just to be sure regarding the servings of the dish you’ll be ordering.

When we went there, we only had merienda. I ordered the Suman sa Lihia and their famous Traditional Blend Hot Chocolate. This snack only costed me 144 (Suman sa Lihia- 64/Traditional Blend - 80). The Traditional Blend drink is the taste of Baguio. You can feel the freshness of the tsokolate they used. Also the Suman sa Lihia was served hot with lots of niyog and sugar, the perfect pair with the hot chocolate drink. Drinking this outdoors and feeling the cold breeze of Baguio was so relaxing.

The restaurant has a restroom in case you need to go. They’re open from Monday to Sunday from 7am - 10pm. #loolooDroneGiveaway

A cup of Traditional Hot Chocolate Drink and Suman (sticky rice) from Batirol is a staple treat for every Baguio visit. Through time, there is an increasing number of customers that might be the reason of the change in quality and lessened thickness of flavor. Chocolate is not as strong like the old times but still adequately pass as the best drink in town. The menu tagline says it all: "copied but never equaled".

Visited for lunch during my most recent Baguio trip. I devoured the Aligue rice. The food menu is a little steep. There are also set meals available for group sharing. Pangpamilya set meal for Php 850 comprises Bibingka, Turon, Suman, and 10 cups of refillable chocolate. Traditional Blend is priced at Php 80 and there are cold blends with price ranging from Php 135 to Php 150. Service however is tolerably slow like everything is at its relax pace.

Choco-late de Batirol is located downhill Camp John Hay giving guests a lush greenery backdrop. It gives rustic home ambiance with outdoor view covered with Pine Trees and enormous plants surrounding the outdoor seating area.

During a weekend trip to Baguio, our first stop was Choco-late de Batirol. We arrived early in the morning and got to the restaurant just in time for it to open. It’s located inside Camp John Hay so parking wasn’t difficult at all, and well, we made it there very early. Although, the space inside the restaurant itself is a bit limited so try to go as early as you can. Finding this place isn’t hard as well because Waze will definitely give you accurate instructions even within the Camp John Hay compound itself.

Food-wise, it was alright, nothing special for me though. If you’re the type of person who prefers a wide selection of menu items then this might not be a good place to start your Baguio trip. Their breakfast selection is a bit limited. I remember there were about 4 or 5 items on the menu but honestly, I didn’t expect much from the food as a couple of friends have already told me that it’s not as great as other breakfast places. I was more excited for the chocolate de batirol which is after all what they’re called :)

If it’s your first time, go with their traditional blend for your hot chocolate. Personally, I really liked it. It’s unlike the usual ones we can get at our local cafes here in the city. It’s definitely not too sweet and I appreciated that a lot - when I tasted it I knew that it wasn’t artificial at all. I think my next visit will be more for the hot chocolate versus the food.

Because Baguio wouldn't be complete without a visit here and awarm cup of tsokolate. 9749️ So one afternoon, I suggested we have our merienda here.

We all ordered the traditional hot chocolate and for sharing, suman and bibingka.

The hot chocolate was good and not super super sweet. It had the right thickness and richness. It was comforting and made our tummies warm. 9786128077🏼

We also liked both the suman and bibingka. I enjoyed eating the suman together with my hot chocolate. Perfect combo!! Yuuuumm!! 128069

We ordered turon and their hot drinks (classic and with cinnamon). Their turon was just the usual dessert, a bit pricy, too. Their drinks are really their specialty.

What?!
Haha. Sorry but this one will not make it to the top chocolate drinks i have in mind. Their chocolate is not that solid, plus, it's diluted with peanut taste. I thought i ordered chocolate why do i taste peanut in it?! They should have put on the menu about the peanut content.

You know what, better go to tsokolateria. Haha.

The place is good naman, the service is average.

Oh, dont order "baguio special" because it got strawberry syrup".. it's a little confusing, but just order the "traditional blend" if you wanna test their chocolate drink.

Did you taste peanuts?!
It's a good thing they did not do something worse i could given a 1 star.

The place is so welcoming. Nice place to just hang around and waste time its worth it. The bibingka is good. The hot tsokolate is given.

Nice cozy place. Perfect setting if you want a cup of hot tsokolate. Loved the consistency and the taste! Paired with warm suman and yummy bibingka..in the company of special people...definitely the place to be in the cool Baguio weather!

Extra:
Restroom had the sign "Ihi lang po."
Try saying that to a 6 y/o who needed to do number 2! My best friend had the time of her life trying to get my daughter's MacArthurs to never return. It took her so long to completely flush the toilet that they literally held up the line for over 10minutes. (6 na balde, pare!). I had to excuse them from the people waiting in the queue. They seriously have to get that toilet fixed!

I ordered their Vigan langgonisa since we went there for breakfast and it taste just ok (nothing special). Service is not that good because you have to make a follow up from time to time to remind them your request (maybe because of the long customer queue). I basically paid the experience of having breakfast in Baguio being surrounded by pine trees while having a cup of their signature chocolate drink.

This place was so relaxing and cozy. We arrived early that's why we had a table set up immediately. Their food was a bit pricey. I had a tapa kalabaw with rice and egg for 190 pesos. They also serve daing na bangus and vigan longganisa with the same price range. Nothing too special with their breakfast meals. They also serve mirienda like puto bung bong and arroz caldo but again it is pricey. I didnt had a chance to taste their chocolate batirol coz for a just a cup of if costs around 110 pesos. I just had service water instead. For instagram purposes you can visit this place but not recommendable for breakfast because of the price.

We really enjoyed the hot chocolate here. It was not too sweet and had a deep chocolatey flavor. Definitely more enjoyable when paired with Baguio's cool weather.

Choco-Late de Batirol's traditional blend (95php) and Suman Sa Lihia (75php) are two perfect combo when you happened to visit this place for merienda. The breakfast food is so-so but we enjoyed their beef steak from their rice meal menu. The ambience is unique and fancy enough to relax and feel the cold weather of Baguio.

Good ambiance but so-so menu. The breakfast plates seemed overpriced and the food is nothing really special.

When in Baguio City, I always always look forward to visiting this place. There's nothing fancy or spectacular about the place. Even their menu is nothing out of the ordinary. But the garden setting is something I fancy and sipping a hot cup of Tsokolate Batirol while the cool Baguio breeze brushes my face is ultimately calming and relaxing.

Located in Camp John Hay, Chocolate de Batirol is a very simple stop. Nipu Hut style restaurant with wooden tables and chairs, lush greens all around, open air with no physical door or windows. It utilizes the natural cool breeze of the place and it's known for it's specialty drink - Choco-late de Batirol. They offer this native chocolate drink with an assortment of flavors, including strawberry of course.

Went here with my small family, my siblings and parents last December after a long day of pasyal. We wanted some bibingka but unfortunately they run out. We went for multiple orders of their Suman sa Lihia, Turon with Langka and cups of their Classic Hot Choco-late De Batirol.

Warm, sweet with a rich chocolate flavor, this is the type that has some coarse grains when you drink it because of the tablea residue. It can get cloying to some who prefer the commercial type of chocolate drink.

Their Suman sa Lihia were good, 2 pieces per order. Served with shredded coconut meat and muscovado.

Their Turon were delicious! Deep fried to golden brown perfection, filled with banana slices and langka and drizzled with caramel! Loved the crunch with each bite! We ordered a lot of this!

My daughter also requested for the ice blended version of their chocolate de batirol in strawberry flavor. I must say that it was delicious too! Loved the use of fresh strawberries for the syrup. It was refreshing and not cloying at all.

Never tried their dishes here. We always go here for snacks or dessert.

Visitted this place during trip to Baguio on last weekend,

When think of chocolate, i will definiately come back to this place,

Ordered, Choco Mallow, Traditional Choco & Raspberry Choco,

All taste so good & the thickness of chocolate are perfectly blend with a little nutty flavor on it, if you fan of sweet go the Choco Mallow, the Trafitional more of choco and nutty taste, if you love raspberry, the choco Raspberry really fragrance and not so sweet.

Didn't try their food , but well Baguio food is really awesome, fresh and affordable & healthy too.

"Choco-late de batirol is like sipping a cup of thick cream thats been made a little more firm by constant beating from the molenillo, a wooden beater or whisk."
