Bidi Bidi Cafe: heArt of Baao

When art, culture plus food meet, what do you get? Bidi Bidi Cafe is the most accurate answer. As a multi-hyphenate farmer and arts and culture enthusiast, the multi-awarded Bernadette ‘Bidi Bidi’ de los Santos opened her doors to the public via her Bidi Bidi Cafe.

We were lucky to have been invited one fine Sunday to tour her Cafe de Artes and be immersed in her colorful and jovial life via Bidi Bidi Cafe.

Place

The Cafe occupies the lower portion of a Spanish house. Upon entering the compound, lush greens will welcome you.
