Vincent’s Place is a place you’d go to notwithstanding the probability of not knowing who Vincent is… In a way, you’d get to know Vincent through this place; a place where Vincent offers good food.
Offering a fusion of the richness of Cordilleran food and a twist to it for all its unique delectability, Vincent’s Place further elevates Baguio to an exquisite level as a food destination as it already is. And as if to validate the fusion concept beyond their edible treats, the place likewise places itself within the complementing mix of homemade and free trade. There is that comforting feel one gets to affordably gain.

Times have changed as much as Baguio withstands its opportunity over sustainable commercialism… Amidst the proliferation of restaurants and eateries with thematic and trade success, Vincent’s Place is establishing itself as a must-try Baguio original for both their complementing local fare and befitting ambiance.
Hopefully soon, we’d come back and get to “eatsperience” their “fare share” for an offering of Classic Pinikpikan, Pinuneg, Buguias Platter, La Trinidad Omelette, Bikorot, et al. (read: “eat all”)
That’s how we “met” Vincent. Meeting (make that “mmm eating”) Vincent through a pleasant meal, “Hi Vincent!” would have been a fitting greeting as it was some “heaven sent” blessing… As heavy as their serving yet affordable that’s commensurate to a divine treat, indeed, “heaven sent”… that’s Vincent of Vincent’s Place …in this mountainous region just between heaven and a bit above sea level.
