Pugpog Bikers Highlands is an al-fresco cafe and restaurant with an overlooking view of the Angat River and the Sierra Madre mountain range. We’ve seen this on the internet a lot of times and been eyeing for it for quite a while. Gladly, we finally found the time that will suit everyone’s schedule!
The place has become a favorite pit stop for bikers and motorists en route to DRT, hence the name. But it’s not just a favorite pit stop, but also a perfect hangout place for the locals like us!
Our experience at Pugpog Bikers Highlands
We agreed to arrive in the afternoon so we could savor the view while having our afternoon snacks, and stay until it gets dark to witness how the place glows. Spoiler alert: it was superb!
When we heard the word “Pugpog”, a swimming spot instantly pops into mind because we went there for swimming when we were little. I’m just not sure if that certain area is still open for swimming.
Pugpog Bikers Highlands is just a 30-min drive from our home in San Jose del Monte. Although it’s within Angat, but it’s only a little past the Norzagaray boundary arch. You have to take note that the traffic gets heavier as you come near the place especially during weekends. There are no parking spaces within the premises, but there’s a pay parking (₱20) just across the road.
Since we went on a weekend, parking was a challenge! We waited for about 10 minutes waiting patiently for at least one car to get out of the pay parking. And once parked, we waited for another 10 minutes before we were let in, since they were limiting the number of people inside the cafe. I highly suggest you visit during weekdays as much as possible!
The atmosphere and the views were great. Health protocols were observed. There were lots of photo spots with overlooking view. Temperature was Tagaytay-ish. But the food and drinks were so-so, and service was mediocre. My brother ordered sisig and it was never served so we thought of just cancelling the order but ended up taking it home as it’s already on process. The delay wasn’t expected to think that they’re limiting the number of customers.
Among the orders, the only taste I liked was the pizza fries (although it’s pricey). The drinks were either bland or too sweet.
As the sky gets dark and the place was being lighted up, we braced ourselves for another photo-op session! It definitely has a different charm at night time. We spent few minutes enjoying the lights and taking photos. Christmas decorations and cool breeze, it was beginning to look and feel a lot like Christmas!
All in all, we loved the look and feel of Pugpog Bikers Highlands. It’s a perfect hangout place for family and friends, and a quick pit stop for travelers. You will most likely love being here as long as you won’t expect too much on food quality and service. Although individual experiences may vary.
