Picture Feature(d): Café Leona

Excerpt from Café Leona by Ces Rodriguez for SEAIR InFlight May 2010

“The transformed ground-floor of the home of renowned Vigan poet Leona Florentina (1849-1884), after whom the café is named, lies just off Calle Crisologo in Vigan. The dining inside the main door has an alcove on the far end suitable for more private gatherings. The main restaurant is dim, low-ceilinged, a little cramped and cool even at sweltering afternoons, with ice cream freezers akin to European bistros. Window seats have a view of the street. At night, when the weather permits, tables are set on the street, with smoke billowing from the barbecue grill and people nursing cold beers.”
