The Amazing Bag of Beans in Tagaytay City - Home of Great Food and Coffee!

When I was browsing for some good eats in Tagaytay, I kept on stumbling upon Bag of Beans (BoB). Although this suggests that this restaurant is already too common for a place to pick in Tagaytay, I still made sure that we would drop by the restaurant even just for some desserts. Fortunately, my wish just came true.

And so by the time we got there, I was blown away by both by the beauty and structure of the restaurant. The first floor houses the souvenir store where you can purchase some pasalubong like coffee beans, breads and stuff.

Then the "second floor" which is the restaurant proper can be accessed by going down the stairs. And holy cow, I got surprised by the charm of what stumbled upon me. I have to exaggerate a bit, but it felt like I was in another dimension. Let me share you the view I got:

Now, let's sidetrack a little as I share this shot with you. Even if you'll say that it is amateurish, you won't prevent me from feeling proud with this shot because of the good light orb effects.

I have to admit this -- I really fell in love with the place. It was very serene and lovely with all the furniture design and the suitable environment!

Coffee Bar - where all the good stuff begin brewing!
I haven't mention this, but I will now -- Bag of Bans restaurant is considerably huge with a lot of seats available; however, even such is the case, you might still be asked to wait for a while for some space to free up. Fret not because you can go around and be bewildered by the great sights such as this:

Okay, now that we've taken a look at the place, let's go check the sweets out next.


Blueberry Cheesecake || P150

This cheese cake had a thick layer of whipped cream, followed by a thinner layer of cream cheese, and ultimately the solid crust. What I admired most about this dessert was its sufficient sweetness. Also, the overall appearance of the cake was mouthwatering.

Apple Pie ala Mode || P155

This apple pie was sweeter than what I call optimum, but the ice cream really complimented the taste of the pie (albeit making the sweetness more afloat). Also, since the apple filling was warm, it created a great sensation in the mouth (i.e. cold and warm battle).

Note: I recommend this for those with highly prominent sweet tooth.

Black Forest Frappe || P145 
Black Forest Frappe in Bag of Beans
A perfect blend of coffee, chocolate, milk and cherry
This Black Forrest drink highlighted a fine coffee taste with a blend of chocolate and bits of cherry. The resulting mix was extremely fine that I personally found not overwhelming. Also, this frappe is a bestseller according to the waiter (who apparently has a same first name as I do).

Iced Caramel Machiatto || P115

An interesting mix of caramel and coffee that will tickle the taste buds
This machiatto  had a very nice concoction of caramel and coffee with subtle warmness. The bottom layer contained the warm coffee portion and the upper layer contained the cool caramel drink. My younger brother really enjoyed this machiatto but mentioned that it has an "umay" factor.

Frozen Chocolate || P115

Now, if you want something simple and straight to the point, you may want to go for this frozen chocolate. It featured a classic sweet milk chocolate blend. Nothing more and nothing less.

Fresh Watermelon Shake || P125

Now, in case you don't enjoy coffee, and you are not in a mood for some chocolate. You may want to go for the fresh fruit shakes of Bag of Beans. Of course you won't find anything so special about this drink, but it's definitely refreshing and possibly healthy.

Place ★★
Taste ★★
Service ★★☆ The staff are often all busy serving the customers
Price ★★★ Competitive enough (as for the drinks and desserts)

Alright! That one practically wraps up our BoB experience. However, one thing still stirs my curiosity, and that's the non-dessert selection of Bag of Beans. Perhaps you have an idea that you want to share with us (e.g. other recommendables here in this resto). I'd be happy to hear them from you!

  3. It would've been nice to behold the "colorful ceiling lamps ... (with the) orb effects", but I wasn't able to: we found ourselves in the smaller branch instead (I didn't know there are two, in Tagaytay!). I had fish and chips; my partner roast beef, their best-seller among the non-desserts. Both dishes were cooked just fine (the beef was tender and separated easily upon slicing), and they tasted fine (not really hitting the spot). We had apple pies ala mode, and I agree: I loved the contrast of hot-and-cold: I had brain freeze when I took my scoop of vanilla ice cream, but was immediately relieved when I dug into the pie's content. :)

  4. Thanks Mats d'Pants for sharing your insights! Yup, they have a smaller branch elsewhere in Tagaytay, but most people say this larger one is better.


    Wow, at least the dishes you had tasted fine. Maybe this branch we went to prepares those dishes better? Well, let's hope so. Anyway, I'm glad you agreed with me with the apple pie! Haha!


    Thanks again for dropping by and sharing your experience with us!
