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 to another person, so we asked that person politely if we can be listed at the waitlist. She just looked at us. Then we saw a table with two chairs available and asked her if we can take it, she just raised her hand as if saying talk to the hand. Maybe because there were just the three of us and they will not make a lot of money from us that is why we were not treated as a customer. So, we decided to go outside and just find another place to dine as it is nearing 2:00pm and we have a kid in tow.

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 and imitation crab . There were some confusion in understanding how they have computed the seniors citizens' discount because it did not reflect the right amt of discount but after some contest they agreed to deduct at least php500. from total bill. overall, it's not that commendable. The waiters and waitresses were very pleasant though.
