Il-lengan is pronounced as /il-luh-ngan/, an igorot (kankana-ey dialect) term that means “a place to slack off”.
It is a local Igorot themed and owned cafe that highlights their rustic handmade designs.
The cafe specializes in coffee but the food is also catered well by a head chef.
It is located beside a carwash. Guess you know where to stay while waiting for your car to be cleaned up.
Rustic Homy Ambience
When we say rustic, it means it is related to the countryside or made roughly of wood in terms of furniture.
Bar fact: The designer recycled scrap wood to craft Il-lengan Cafe’s beautiful bar.
I’m no photographer but for those who are, I’m pretty sure you can eye potential shots for this corner.
Corner Fact: Those old wood used to be walls of the owner’s ancestral house back in Mountain Province.
