the Cafe at BAG OF BEANS Tagaytay

In case you missed it, this post is still part of 
the LONG-WEEKEND-leading-to-Lunar-New-Year Series

and


 We decided to go to Tagaytay after Mt. Maculot and the quick visit to TAAL TOWN Batangas. We stayed in a cheap place called Sierra Traveller's Inn along Aguinaldo Highway in Mendez.If your entry point from manila is Olivarez, it's on the right side leading to Nasugbu past Robinsons and The 1.5 hours supposed travel from Taal via fx took us 2hours due to the traffic congestion once we entered Tagaytay. I thought it was because of the Chinese New Year rush but turned out that one famous establishment was causing all of it ------BAG OF BEANS....and according to the driver, it's a regular thing during meal hours. I suppose its really that famous that it causes heavy flow of vehicles in the area.

That sparked our curiosity so we thought of checking it the next day.............

We stuffed ourselves with lots of bulalo the night before so we were asleep for 10hours.It was brunch when we got up and we were scheduled for massage in SONYA's GARDEN by 2pm so we thought a heavy meal is not a good idea.BAG OF BEANS has a restaurant wing but we went to the Bread Store instead where there is a CAFE at the balcony. That's where we tried some of their signature delicacies......


first, THE CAFE INTERIOR.............

or shal I say exterior coz
it's more of an open air type Cafe on a cozy balcony.This is exactly the ambiance that I want in a place like Tagaytay where the weather is cool.It's small but not congested.Simple yet functional chairs and tables.Colorful Walls.Perfect.

WHAT WE ORDERED

We ordered HOUSE BLEND COFFEE, sylvannas, strawberry cheesecake and Sheperd's Pie. The typical me. Teresa loved the Pie while I enjoyed the cheesecake.I know right, cheesecakes are everywhere but I love cheesecakes so don't blame me. The thing I noticed about BAG OF BEAN's cheesecake is that there is a layer of Grahams cracker in the middle so when it gets kinda messy when you cut it with fork.But the taste is good.Not the best I tried but still a good bite.

Nothing very special about the HOUSE BLEND COFFEE but for the sake of experiencing it,sige na nga.hihihi. Or I am not really a critic of coffee so I can't determine the difference. The Sylvanna's are a must try.Best eaten chilled. The Shepperd's Pie????? It was good. Yun lang. As I said, it was Teresa's favorite.

Our total bill---693 pesos.Service charge included.

The food in the Cafe of BAG OF BEANS Tagaytay is kinda pricey but worth it. I was after the place too as I find it accessible yet not too crowded. At least in the cafe area. We therefore didn't feel the rush and savored every bite instead.When you visit Tagaytay, I suggest you drop by and experience it. I am sure they have a lot of goodies fit for the budget that you will love ........

There goes another lame food review.hahaha
---SONYA'S SIGNATURE MASSAGE next>>>>> tata!!
