Walking up along the main road of Sagada, if you’re staying down the road heading to the municipal building, there’s this pretty attractive verandah restaurant on the right side of the road after Yoghurt House (which is on the left side).
The green plants drooping on the balcony makes it really charming, so it attracted me to try it. No one‘s dining on an early afternoon, right before lunch time, and it’s actually my breakfast hour. There’s an indoor dining area if you don’t like it al fresco (who doesn’t want?) or the verandah with about 4 or 5 tables good enough for 2 persons each.
Scanning through the menu list, I was surprised to see prices slightly leaning towards steep. Although, it’s almost in par with the prices at the posh(ish) restaurants in town, like Yoghurt House and Kimchi. I ordered “daing na bangus”, it’s a breakfast meal . It comes with salad and a really good tasting vinaigrette, house-blend perhaps, and a cup of reddish rice. I glanced back on the menu folder and it says “boneless bangus” (milkfish, no bones) yet there are small bones that pierces my gums. I never like this kind of fish but the menu says boneless, so I did try. I like the fresh garden salad on the side though.
Bana’s Café also serves excellent Sagada brewed coffee, in fact, they sell their own packaged coffee. Ask for the expensive one, not really costly if you knew where they got this coffee beans. Worth your money.
For the rustic ambience and good tasting salad, and of course the vinaigrette that comes with it, try Bana’s.
Located along the main road going down from municipal building it’s on your right before reaching Pinikpikan Haus and Lemon Pie House.

Insider Tip: Ask for an extra salad on the side along with the tasty vinaigrette.
