We went to Tagaytay yesterday to have lunch with the family. After a healthy stuffing of the best all Filipino dishes, we went to this Bag of Beans. Whenever we go to Tagaytay or areas around it, we often pass this coffee shop but never got to visit it.
The stop over there was worth it because the place looks very romantic. It's something where I'd go to spend a whole day, reading a book under one of those vintage lamps. And the bread they sell there were to die for! The coffee is a bit too strong for my taste though - kapeng barako, and ironically I felt sleeping after drinking it. Must have been because the full stomach and the gentle fall of the rain. I wish they could have played music, something to add to the coziness of the place. Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to visiting this place again. Who knows, we might even source our coffee in Bag of Beans for Soya Ice!:D
It's one of those places where you wish you brought a Maria Clara outfit and shot with a naked Crisostomo Ibarra. Kidding! We should have more accessible places like this here in Manila. Something more Filipino than Figaro almost to the level of Xocolat (in Katipunan), but more affordable to your everyday locals.
