A bit sad because it was not orange picking season however found the food and drinks nice. The pinikpikan was a bit salty may due to the smoked meat, the crazy four lassie drink was so good 128077🏻

The start of the ultimate Sagada experience was pumped up when we arrived at our home for the next 3 days, Rock Inn & Cafe.

Situated 30-40 minutes away before the Sagada town proper, you'll see a sign on the left side of the main road leading to Rock Inn & Cafe. This sign leads to what looks like a road less travelled with a street filled with pebbles and small rocks leading to a pathway going down. We walked for almost 10-15 minutes, turned left and was continuously amazed with the scenery of huge, abundant pine trees all around, perfectly paired with the blueness of the daylight skies and the brownness of the mountainous sight.

Once you see an open gate with a parking drive right in front of it, you've finally arrived at Rock Inn & Cafe. The welcoming area has a concrete flooring with an arch of vines and flowers making it an inviting area to be part of. Once you enter the wooden looking house, you'll see the inn's reception area with the front desk associates ready to assist you. We arrived 3 hours earlier for check-in so they gladly informed us that we can leave our stuff at the front desk, they'll be safely kept and we can start touring around. Yay!

Meanwhile, the inn's reception area was connected to their rusty and wooden designed cafe named Cafe Bodega. They serve foods from breakfast to dinner.

Once you go outside, it'll lead to a connection of the cafe, a mini garden and the dap-ay area wherein bonfire sessions (P100/wood bundle) happen.

The pathway to the left leads to the inn's rooms. Once entering the hallways to the rooms, it seems like you're entering a dorm inspired setting wherein you'll feel the province vibes with the wooden and brown interiors that feel so cool to the eyes. Hanging as wall decors are different weaved wall interior designs that are for sale too.

We got a room good for 4 pax, priced at P1800/night. The rooms have the same feel with the rest of the inn, with 2 queen sized beds for sharing, with the inviting pillows and mattresses. The private hot & cold shower were clean and well-organized too. And yes, no television. No air conditioner. Just a solemn place to rest, away from all the stress and busyness, pure comfort and peace only.

Taking a peek from the window, you'll see the sight of mountains and trees and grasses for you to adore and love. There's also an orange farm open for in house guests and other walk-ins to explore and enjoy orange picking at it's peak season.

Being far away from the town center, they provide 2 free shuttle rides for in-house guests to use at the duration of stay. Additional shuttle rides are priced at P200/ride.

As we were checked-in here, we made sure to try out Cafe Bodega (not listed in looloo yet) their resident cafe and restaurant for in house guests which is also open to walk-in guests, from breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The cafe's interiors were similar to the inn's design - rusty, wooden, local, provincial with its welcoming, inviting and comforting vibes. The wooden tables and chairs also matched well with the old and vintage artsy pieces of wall decors including old photographs, paintings and items close to the Sagada culture.

For breakfast, I ordered their Beef Tapa with Sagada's Moutain Tea for P190. Their sticky and filling rice came with scrambled eggs and coleslaw with oranges on the side, with the Adobo/Bistek tasting beef tapa with yummy onions topped on it. I loved the salty sauce of the tapa as it gave more life to the dish. With every bite I took, the tenderness and juicyness of the beef was tasted.

The tea tasted bland at first, the reason why some honey orange syrup came with it, making it a perfect match with the Beef Tapa rice meal.

My friends ordered their Longganisa Breakfast Set (P180) and the Onions, Mushrooms, Tuna Omelette (P180) which tasted really delicious too, with the freshest ingredients from the town.

Aside from these day starter meals that we've tried, they have a lot more dishes and drinks to offer from morning, as early as 6AM to night, until 10PM.

Rock Inn & Cafe is such a nice accommodation/cafe/restaurant that you can check out may you be with your friends, families, partners, colleagues, etc. They have a variety of rooms that can accommodate couples, barkadas, and even larger groups. Try looking for Wanda Omengan because she'd gladly assist and accommodate you with all your needs and wants, making sure that your vacation is at its best experience.

By far, Rock Inn & Cafe gave me that feel like I was in the province of the Hollywoods, with the sights, feels, and treatments from their staff. I will definitely come back for this place.

The Jungle pack and a Full house yoghurt. The best pair you can get. And am so glad there is a legit yoghurt in Sagada. Don't try it elsewhere except here and in misty lodge.

Like our strawberry farm experience, we wanted to taste a little bit (extremely minute) of the local life. And having heard a lot about Sagada Oranges, orange picking was a no-brainer activity while in Sagada.

Rock Inn and Cafe offers this attraction and makes it so convenient for tourists. One has to pay P50 per head to do so. Armed with shears, a plastic bag for the oranges and a lot of eagerness and gumption, off we went into the grove.

The terrain was uneven and a wee but slippery but that made it all the more fun. We just had to make sure we didn't fall into the ravine close by! 128540

Best picks were the half orange-green ones. We were taught to cut from the stem. Plucking the orange straight from the stem takes away a bit of skin and exposes the inside of the orange right away.

Enjoyable picks were the really ripe pure oranges because these we could eat right there free of charge. Extra doses of vitamin c courtesy of Rock Inn! 128516

After all was said and done, we had our pick weighed and unlike the strawberry farm, the price per kilo was cheap at P60 only.

Now, isn't that a smart way to get your pasalubong for home and have fun in the process?! 128077

One thing surely I've noticed on the streets of Sagada is a rectangular poster almost everywhere, It's a buffet sign of Bodega cafe (Rock Inn) every saturday night.

Rock Inn Cafe or bodega cafe is something I haven't tried before. I've only known Rock Inn because of their orange picking attraction on the months of october to january but since I always visit Sagada off of those said months then my interest in the cafe has narrowed and also because it's far from the town proper. But after learning that Log Cabin's famous french chef has been pirated by them then I was intrigued to try out what they can offer. Went to the place a little early for dinner around 4:30 pm, it was something I've never expected, a little untidy because of the constructions around the area but once I stepped in their catwalk flowered with lovely lady's shoe orchids it was something unexpected. Beautiful!!!

Since we were too early again for dinner it was expected that the place wouldn't be crowded, I insisted that we seat on their bar area, a garden side and that was a good suggestion because the area was something special because it like taking a meal with nature. Very nice ambiance, very intimate with nature more accentuated by their interiors all made out of wood, stumps were turned into chairs and even the flooring has rocks popping so be very careful because one has almost tripped me.

With every restaurant trip, the food selection should be always the main star and for this, it isn't. Not that the food is bad but the selection were all common filipino food that we usually see here in Manila, left with no choice, we ordered sinigang, beef broccoli, pancit and their neat rice, which seemed interesting. Food were in generous portions, I've only tried the beef broccoli and it was just, broccoli was fresh of course, crispy and flavorful and the beef was tough. Taste?! Nothing special. What was remarkable about their dishes were the portions of veges, especially on the pancit, it was half veggies and half noodles, my mom and auntie loved it. Still thinking what the neat rice is? It's basically a fried rice with veggies mixed instead of meats, that's why they call it neat. Well seasoned and for veggie lovers, it can be eaten even without an additional viand.

I would still recommend the place for Sagada travelers, with their orange picking attraction and nature embracing location, you won't be wrong.
