Food Trip: Bag of Beans, Tagaytay
It has been years since I last went to Bag of Beans for coffee. Approximately 4 years later, am back, not just for BOB’s coffee but for a quick dinner too.
You probably would have already seen this place when you got stuck in traffic in the Mendez intersection. At first one would have thought it’s just a small simple cafe where one could quickly grab a hot steaming coffee and some freshly baked pastries.
But lo and behold, when you descend to the garden, Bag of Beans is neither small nor simple. It is not just a cafe at all. The coffee shop, after all, is a real open air garden restaurant. Guests are free to choose from the several mini spaces to dine in.
Dinner at Bag of Beans was delightful, primarily due to the restaurant’s nice ambiance – think Sonya’s Secret Garden and Isabelo Restaurant-style. Ambiance was great! Bag of Beans has lots of romantic nooks, comfortable mini spaces, and picture-perfect spots.
However, our dinner did not turn out well. My order of Chicken Kiev was a bit over-cooked, tough, and a bit bland for my taste. The pasta was a bit bland too. Our best friends for the night were Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper.
Despite the bland taste of food, I still do like Bag of Beans for its ambiance and desserts. But moving forward, I would probably stick to Bag of Beans best sellers – – BOB breakfast, coffee, desserts, pastries, and English pies.
