My day in Sagada starts early at five-thirty in the morning with me opening my room window in the second floor of Misty Lodge to breathe in the fresh, cold morning air with pine wood scent. There’s no feeling like it. I would take a few more lazy minutes to watch the mist crawl by the forest before it is carried by the wind that came with the sunrise.
After freshening and dressing up, I go straight down to the lobby to order Sagada coffee and breakfast. The lobby is usually very busy in the morning due to other guests but my favorite place in Misty to have breakfast is at the wooden table right outside the main door. However, due to the early morning cold, not many choose this location. Perfectly fine by me because I love the cold!
Misty Lodge serves the best thin-crust pizza in town. They have different flavors like Hawaiian pizza, Pepperoni , Cheese and Vegetarian Pizza. It is so delicious that guests from all over Sagada would hike the long road just to get to Misty Lodge which is located in Staunton Road, about a half hour hike outside the town center.

Though Yoghurt House specializes in yogurt, I find that the yogurt in Misty Lodge is more delicious. However the dinner we had one evening eaten at the veranda overlooking the street on the second floor was really very delicious and worth going back for.
A restaurant serving delicious and reasonably priced food, you certainly must eat here at Yoghurt House!

Log Cabin Restaurant
The first time I was able to dine here at Log Cabin was during a Christmas noche buena two Christmases ago. It served a really gorgeous buffet spread and the place was swinging with other hungry guests. I had to come two days in advance to be waitlisted to make sure we get accommodated when we had our noche buena on Christmas Eve.

There are many places you visit and you worry if there are good places to eat in but Sagada is not such a place. You might be so far from the nearest urban city but there are so many quaint, interesting and delicious places to eat from. One thing though that is still missing here is a rustic cafe with delicious cakes, pies and coffee that will satisfy my sweet tooth. But maybe it’s too much to ask for now!
