Given that this restaurant is the only decent place to dine in Paoay, the place gets too crowded at the peak of lunch time, so we decided to have a very late lunch here (around 2:30pm). We were given seats with a very good view of the church. Our orders were quickly taken (we got the Pizza Sampler of pinakbet... More

We were at the height of the tourist season and the restaurant was full. But because it was highly recommended we decided to wait for an hour past lunch to line up. I looked forward to the pinakbet pizza which one of us tried before. What a disappointment! The pizza had missing ingredients (few vegetables and no bagoong). The other... More

We went here because we were referred by a friend. So, we were so excited and drove from Laoag to this restaurant. However, when we arrived it was full. So, we just sat at the waiting area to be approached by the staff. But, no one budged. We approached one staff and just looked at us. Another person pointed us... More

I was wondering how Pinakbet pizza might taste because in the Philippines, Pinakbet is considered as a viand. To my surprise, it was really good. It's pizza includes veggie toppings like okra, tomatoes, string beans, onions, and bitter gourd that is topped with mozzarella cheese. Yummy! It's a must try when you visit Ilocos Norte located near Paoay Church.

We had a satisfying snack here in Harencia Cafe. Great location, clean and cozy. We like it here. A nice spot for a short breath after the day's walk.

There's really nothing special about the food here, if one is looking for Ilocano food. The servings, in fact, are rather small for their price.

The food is not that great but the pinakbet pizza was very good. The karekare was very diluted meaning it does not have the usual body and richness of a Karekare sauce and the peanuts were not ground well , in other words bland. The crispy dinuguan was better. Seafood chop suey didn't have flash seafood but processed seafood bolabola... More

They have a wide range of food selection. The Pinakbet Pizza really surprised me. I didn't think it would be possible for a pizza with this weird flavor be any good but it was really delicious.

The location of this cafe is perfect because lot's of people are in the area to take pictures of the Paoay Church, after many picture takings usually they are already hungry. The place is cozy and very homely it feels like a place where you can gather your family and friends to have lunch or dinner. As far as the... More
