Ostique RnR Farm and Cafe is composed of two main areas that, albeit few, offer and allow guests to experience a level of comfort unlike any other place. Just by the reception area is the actual cafe and dining area with an open space for the guests to enjoy a hot cup of coffee in the mornings while basking in the cool mountain air and quiet surrounding. They serve halal foods and a variety of fresh foods to satisfy every guest. One of their specialties is their bulalo which is considered as one of the best in town.

The second and the main attraction of Ostique RnR Farm and Cafe is their rustic and affordable rest house that could fit up to 6 people. Just by the doorstep is the sala area with a couple of potted plants adorning the space and giving it some life.

There are chairs and a table for the guests to sit in and they may even have their food delivered here if they prefer to eat under the roof. The rest house also comes with a kitchen area, complete with a prepping area, gas, and stove to allow the guests to serve their own meals. The entire second floor serves as a comfortable bedroom with a clear view of the gardens outside. Lastly, at the back of the rest house is a small cottage with a 180-degree view of the mountains, trees and the garden – perfect for mornings while sipping a cup of coffee.
