If you’re wondering about its name, “hiray-hiray” comes from the Karay-a Filipino language that means “to relax.” With its homelike vibes and open-air seating, the café has an ambiance that stays true to its name. From the airy dining area, guests can soak in the sprawling views of the island’s highest mountain, Mount Kanlaon. With an attractive view like this, make sure to capture a shot to level up your Instagram feed’s aesthetic!

On a bright day, this café also makes a perfect place to have breakfast and coffee. Hiray-Hiray Café serves morning specials, smoothies, and native coffee which is sourced from local farmers in Negros. But if you want to appreciate the rural vibe, their suman sa ibos (Filipino Sticky Rice) topped with muscovado sugar is the perfect breakfast meal.
