Cheers to the Sweet Legacy of Good Shepherd Baguio

A Slice of Heaven: My Pilgrimage to Good Shepherd Baguio

Let's be honest, a trip to Baguio isn't complete without a visit to Good Shepherd Convent. This isn't just another tourist stop; it's an experience that awakens the foodie within.

I'm a sucker for a good ube jam, and Good Shepherd's is legendary. That vibrant purple spread is pure magic on toast or anything you can dream up. And let's not forget the strawberry jam, made with Baguio's famous strawberries – a taste of summer in every bite.

Beyond the delicious treats, there's a sense of purpose that adds another layer to the Good Shepherd experience. Knowing that your purchases support a worthy cause makes every bite even more satisfying.

Unfortunately, when we visited Good Shepherd, they only allow two (2) ube jam, one (1) strawberry jam and one (1) lengua de gato (almond crinkles) per tourist. Ah, the whispers of limited goodies can be a bit disheartening, but fear not! Good Shepherd Baguio offers a unique experience that goes beyond immediate availability. Here's why it's still a must-visit:

The Thrill of the Hunt: Yes, there might be limitations on quantities, but that adds to the charm! The limited availability for tourists in the morning can make scoring your favorite treats even more rewarding. Think of it as a treasure hunt – a chance to snag those coveted jars before they disappear.

Local Gems for Afternoon Delights: If you're a late riser or a strategic shopper, head to Good Shepherd after 1 pm. This is when the selection opens up for locals, offering a glimpse into the goodies enjoyed by Baguio residents. You might find delectable peanut brittle, savory adobo peanuts, or melt-in-your-mouth snowflakes.

Supporting a Worthy Cause: Remember, Good Shepherd isn't just about the treats. By purchasing their products, you're supporting a community and a worthy cause. The nuns who run the convent use the proceeds for charitable endeavors, making your sweet tooth indulgence all the more meaningful.

Here's a tip: Be prepared for crowds! Good Shepherd is incredibly popular, especially during peak season. But the line moves quickly, and the friendly staff makes the wait worthwhile.

If you're planning a trip to Baguio, do yourself a favor and put Good Shepherd Convent at the top of your list. It's a must-visit for anyone who appreciates good food, a charming atmosphere, and supporting a good cause. Just remember to bring an empty stomach and a reusable bag – you're going to need it!
