A trip to Tagaytay would normally consist of dining in a restaurant with the view of Taal Volcano. This spectacular natural beauty creates a relaxing ambiance and contributes to the overall dining experience. But my last food hunt in Tagaytay gave me the same tranquil feeling without the view of Taal Volcano. Everything took place during a weekday at Bag of Beans where I got to choose where to stay…courtyard or cottage? I chose the latter although it doesn’t really matter. It was cosy in any part I’d wish to stay. I have a weird feeling that there is a totally different scenario during weekends…but I guess the quality of their food will take care of it!
How Bag of Beans was arranged in a rustic format reminded me that it’s alright to unwind. It was calm yet inviting and sophisticated. It was one of those moments when I agreed to escape and indulge. Without worries or complain, I allowed time to pass while reclining on their wooden chair and being surrounded with lamps and other hanging accents. Plants and trees were creatively placed as well. It seems that everything that’s pleasant is in it. My favourite though would be their inspirational quotes written and colourfully designed on wooden frames.
Bag of Beans currently has more than one branch in Tagaytay and we tried the one near Green Fortune Hotel. They serve not only beverages and desserts. They also offer hearty meals and freshly-baked breads available from breakfast to dinner. My next target would be their brunch buffet which cost ₱400 for adults and P200 for children.
