Batanes Honesty Coffee Shop Has Lots To Offer Every Type Of Traveler

Batanes is an archipelagic province in the Philippines situated in the Cagayan Valley region. It is the northernmost province in the country, and also the smallest, both in population and land area

Batanes has become one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in the country. The relatively isolated islands of the Batanes, the home of the resilient and welcoming Ivatans, with its rolling hills, subtropical climate, ancient cultures, good food, windswept traditional stone houses, and breathtaking landscapes and seascapes which perhaps make it one of the prettiest corners of the world. Its refreshingly chill vibe is unique from the other famous island destinations in the country. Whether it'll be your first time to see the country's northernmost province or you're planning to come back to rediscover the place, Batanes has plenty of spots that are worth your time.

An old couple opened a store back in 1995 to serve as a pitstop for people traveling to and from Sabtang. The HONESTY COFFEE SHOP which is located in Ivana, Batanes, is one of the most visited tourist spot in the province. It is like a coffee-shop-stop-over before you cross the sea for Sabtang Island. Here you can have a cup of coffee, a bottle of cold drinks, freshly made organic bread, biscuits, chips, small krinkets and other souvenirs.

The HONESTY COFFEE SHOP has been copied a lot of times in different places and tourist destinations in the country but its success was never replicated. Some locals say Batanes is the worst place for a cop because there's no one to arrest, no trouble to respond and no need to patrol the streets at night. 

The HONESTY COFFEE SHOP has seen various calamities and yet still remains strong, opening its doors to those who need it— just a proof of the Ivatans' selflessness. It is now in its 24th year. Since then it has supported numerous communities in the island of Sabtang and Batanes mainland. So next time you visit the province, please buy your drinks, snacks and souvenirs from the Honesty Store. Pay the right amount for what you bought and get the experience absolutely free!
