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."

I was supposed to give them 3 stars because I remember telling my boyfriend that when I make a review here in looloo I'll write that their hot chocolate was disappointing. 128514128514 (feeling food blogger nako haha) but now that I remember their traditional hot chocolate, ahhhh it makes me wanna go back and try it all over again. At first really for me it tasted bitter I dont know maybe because I'm used to sweet hot chocolate like the one at Mary Grace. Hehe. In my opinion, I think you should not drink this at night because I wasn't able to sleep! With the puto bumbong and bibingka, it was gooood but didn't gave me food orgasm. Hehehe.

I'll definitely come back here with my sister who is a fan of hot chocolates. I just hope she won't be shocked on how different the taste of their hot choco with the other ones like what I've experienced. 128539

I just love this Strawberry Batirol! 128525 127827
Never miss to drop by this place upon heading to Camp John Hay.
With a kick of cocoa taste in its best way that a bit of bitterness and sweetness just perfectly combined!
It is really something different for me since Im used to the same old usual frappe that I can buy from coffee shops.

Try this and you'll never regret it 9786128521

Not really a fan of the traditional filipino hot chocolate, but i must say, this one is really good. I usually prefer the sweet tasting hot chocolates, but this has a combination of sweetness and bitterness that makes you crave for more 9786 this will be my staple hot chocolate place in Baguio 128518

I always love the place that has good ambiance, and this place has it. Choco-late de Batirol is quite crowded last night, and we are 5th in the waiting list. But after few minutes, we are assisted to this elevated , "bahay kubo" like area.

Our dinner is like a snack, since we are still full from our late lunch in Canto. And of course we ordered their specialty, the choco-late de batirol. I was expecting for creamy and chocolatey, but its not. Chocolate is mild, less creamy and as they mentioned outside their place , I read that they served the chocolate drink with peanuts, which I tasted. For me its ok, because I prefer the tablea homemade drink.. Creamy128521
For our food, we had suman (slurp!! with muscovado and coconut on top), bibingka, palabok (its good ! Its a must try) and champorado with tuyo (hmmm didn't tasted it, its actually something that is out of my list when it comes to food 128548)
This place is nice to visit when in Baguio. Their chocolate drinks has other variety.

On my birth week, R and I decided to escape Manila and went to Baguio for some fresh cold wind. I've always wanted to visit Cafe by the Ruins and after several failed beautiful eyes, R finally agreed to bring me to the charming place. But the Panagbenga visitors seem to have flocked to this place the time we visited the city center. With one hour wait time, R and I decided to go somewhere else. I was already about to pout till my lips reach Manila until when we discovered...

Choco-late de Batirol!

The place is so adorable and the hues of green and brown makes you feel in touch with nature. Sweet chocolate scent dominated the air during our visit and made me drool for its famous hot chocolate.

But we had to wait for a bit as all tables were taken when we got there.

When we finally got served, we ordered the following: Bibingka (PHP105), Suman sa Lihia (PHP64), Traditional Blend (PHP95), and Baguio Classic Cold Batirol (PHP150).

In less than 15 minutes, the Traditional Blend drink, bibingka and suman arrived.

The hot chocolate drink had a nice and rich smell of tablea. It had tones of dark chocolate which I liked but the texture was not as smooth as I wanted it to be. It had a lot of grains that made my throat itch.

Bibingka was quite small and had no salted eggs on it. Instead, it was just topped with coconut shavings. As for the taste, it was very bland.

I'm not sure if it's intentional to complement the batirol but I didn't like it.

Choco-late de Batirol's bestselling suman also didn't leave much of an impression. Perhaps I was expecting something different or spectacular based on the reviews. But this one was pretty ordinary to me. It was good but nothing worth traveling for four hours.

The cold batirol was the saving grace of our visit, or so how R put it. It was sweeter than my drink and it had a peanut-y taste. Taste-wise, it was good. But it also had that grainy rough texture which I didn't like. And it took them forever to serve this drink. We had to follow up more than thrice. We finally got this drink after half an hour or so. For beverage, I don't think it's a reasonable wait.

Adorable place but the merienda dishes and drinks were mediocre. Not sure if I'll visit again but if I do, I'll try the talangka rice.
