Introduction



Welcome! Please click above to watch our short video. :)

Lemongrass is a cafe soon to open in Baguio City, located in the Northern part of the Philippines, and is the brainchild of partners Jennifer Carino and Shirley Bognot-Esplana. The menu will feature dishes that reflect our love of Asian flavors and are inspired by our memories of growing up in Baguio.

Lemongrass will be open daily for lunch and dinner. We will be serving dishes that highlight our fresh local produce, high-quality coffee and unique desserts from Waistline Luxuries. We pride ourselves on serving food that we love in a friendly and warm environment.

Jennifer Carino: Baguio born and bred, Jenny is excited about having a space in the city where the community will be welcome to have a good meal; to sit, talk and enjoy the company of friends and family; and to enjoy the work of new and promising local artists. An artist herself, Jenny has worked for the past 11 years as a Graphic and Web designer. She has also been in numerous group exhibits over the years and understands the need for more places where young artists can have their work shown.

Shirley Bognot-Esplana: Shirley is passionate about food! She is the whiz behind Waistline Luxuries. Her stunning cakes and cupcakes taste even better than they look. Shirley is excited to share her beautiful desserts with the community when Lemongrass opens.
