Food Trip: Bag of Beans (Tagaytay)

What do you think is the best way to fight the cold weather in Tagaytay? A hot soup, particularly the knee... A cuddle or a tight hug from someone you love... or perhaps an expensive fur jacket... All these would do, but I'm looking for a particular answer that would serve as my intro to this blog article. Anyway, the answer that I was looking for is... (drum roll please) coffee.

Located in Tagaytay City in the province of Cavite, Bag of Beans is a coffee shop and restaurant rolled into one. Although it doesn't have the Taal volcano factor used by many to lure customers, Bag of Beans has its own means of attracting people -it's aroma. Who wouldn't be drawn to a smell of freshly brewed coffee? Aside from that the place also has a very rustic feel which is mixed with a nature and provincial atmosphere.

You could buy literal bags of beans too.

Let me warn you though, Bag of Beans has gained so much popularity that it is visited by lots of tourists during weekends (especially during holidays.)  If you want to have a feel of the place you better come early or during the weekdays.
The place is crowded even at night.

Bag of Beans, not only offers coffee, they also have delicious cakes like the blueberry cheesecake which my sister really loves. Aside from that, they also serve buffet breakfast and brunch buffet. 

Here are the rates: (this is subject to change)
Breakfast buffet: P320 (adults) & P160 (children) from 6:30AM to 11AM
Brunch buffet: P400 (adults) & P200 (children) from 11AM to 3PM

1. You have to pay an additional 10% service charge.
2. You will pay P100 if there are leftovers.
3. You cannot share.

If you want to bring home souvenirs, then you should buy their coffee mugs. It might not look that cute or special but there is a word Bag of Beans in it. You can choose from small, medium and large don't worry only the sizes change.

Souvenir anyone?
When I first visited Bag of Beans years back,  I became curious why there were plenty of people crowding its coffee store (and I was outside for Pete's sake) To my amazement everyone was getting their hands on the coffee products particularly the Kapeng Barako and Kapeng Alamid beans (there were also plenty of people buying the mugs... LOL)

Since there were too many customers, I opted to leave and visit some other time. Time and again the place was always full (don't blame me if I only visit Tagaytay during holidays). I finally got a chance to try out the place one Holy Week when my family and I were heading to Batangas for our annual Visita Iglesia. Lucky for me, the food was great... and the coffee.. superb.
Breakfast time!

You have to try it out to relate with me though... so what are you waiting for. Go! Go! Go!*

*Note: As of my last visit to Tagaytay City (Sept. 2015) I have discovered that there are 3 Bag of Beans stores/restaurants already. If you'd ask me what's the best, I'd still go for the original one...

Getting there:

From the Coastal mall terminal, ride a bus heading to Nasugbu. Tell the conductor to drop you off in front of Bag of Beans. It is just beside the main highway.
