Honesty Cafe

Honesty is among the traits the Batans pride themselves with.  But can you expect the same things from people not from Batanes?

Honesty Cafe proves we can.

This is a small store (probably 20 to 30 sqm ) located near the Port of Ivana. Locals said it is open 24/7. Yet, no one is manning the store. No cashiers. No attendants.  Only a sign ” The Lord is my security guard” comes close to a deterrent  to anybody who may have evil designs.

If you need to buy something, all you have to do is get that item, — coffee, bread, native crafts. Prices are written on the items. You leave your payment in a box marked for that purpose.  Of course, no change can be given so one has to either pay the exact amount or leave a bit more money than the cost of the goods taken.
