One of the many things that would lure a guest back to Grand Sierra Pines Baguio (Sierra Pines) is The Atrium Lobby Café. This restaurant serves Sierra Pines’ breakfast buffet from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Open daily from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., The Atrium Lobby Café is a place to enjoy Pinoy comfort food at affordable prices.
We had lunch at The Outlook Steak & Grill (located on the lobby of Sierra Pines) on our first day in Baguio last December. Dinner was at The Atrium Lobby Café, and there were some of the items on their menu that we have tried and enjoyed.
If you know my son well enough, you’d know that he’d normally prefer having pizzas over rice. So this explains why he’s having this pizza for dinner when his folks were busy devouring a huge bowl of Beef Bulalo with steamed white rice. Pizza Ala Sierra is a 3-cheese pizza with basil pesto and bacon bits.
While nothing truly compares to Tagaytay’s bulalo, this Beef Bulalo from The Atrium Lobby Café was not to be dismissed. For one, the beef shanks were tender, and the serving was huge! They didn’t scrimp on the veggies either, and they were crisp and fresh as well. The clear broth was deliciously seasoned, too.
Second Day at Sierra Pines
On our 2nd day at Grand Sierra Pines, we went to The Atrium Lobby Café and tried an appetizer, some noodles and cake from their bakeshop.
It’s the the first time I’ve heard of Pancit Batil Patong, which actually reminds me of Pancit Lomi, except that it’s less soupy. I ordered this more out of curiosity than anything else. These are egg noodles with sautéed beef and veggies and poached egg on top. A word of caution, though. It can get cloying after a while, so it’s best to squeeze that calamansi on your noodles.
There was no complaints from the hubs about his plate of Pancit Canton that’s sprinkled with chicharon bits and served with sliced hard-boiled eggs, so I guess he liked it.
While waiting for our orders, my son and I made a quick trip to their bakeshop for desserts, and we zeroed in on this dainty-looking Ube Cake. It’s light and fluffy and not overly sweet. We all enjoyed it!
If you’re planning to visit Baguio soon but haven’t decided yet on a place to stay, I highly recommend Grand Sierra Pines Baguio. And while you’re there, be sure to try the delectable offerings of The Atrium Lobby Café.
