Still on a Tagaytay hangover, we went back just a weekend after the last roadtrip, with family in tow this time.
One particularly interesting stop that weekend is a quaint (not so) little coffeeshop along the main road of Tagaytay called Bag of Beans. We weren’t particularly hungry then but we stopped by anyway for a coffee break and light snacks.

What’s a coffeeshop without heartwarming coffee? The shelves at the bakery were lined up with bags and bags of coffee beans of different flavors with prices ranging from p200 to p300 per 500g packs. And although they didn’t have it that weekend, Bag of Beans is the only place I know of that sells Civet (cat poop) coffee. It’s what they’re actually most known for.

(p90 per cup; p105 for bottomless)
If you’re a coffee junkie, you’d surely enjoy the option to go bottomless on their strong coffees for a reasonable price. Not bad if you’re going to while away the time reading the newspaper or chatting while enjoying your coffee and the cool Tagaytay weather.
Some pastries and pies that we ordered to go with the coffee-
Breads & pastries of Bag of Beans:
Cinnamon loaf, Choco roll, Chicken empanada
Desserts: Apple Pie Alamode (p135) and Strawberry Cheesecake (p135)
Everything was delicious, special mentions deserve to be made for the Apple Pie Alamode and the Strawberry Cheesecake. The Apple Pie Alamode arrived freshly baked and warm, it was a whole mini pie instead of a regular slice of a bigger pie. The Strawberry Cheesecake is noteworthy too. While the strawbery jam topping isn’t anyhting special, the cheesecase was meltingly good.
Bag of Beans would be/should be a Tagaytay staple from now on. Loved it! <3

Ooey gooey morning! My take on the classic croque madame. Bacon, ham, cheese, and and an egg of oozing doneness. 🍳 #homecooking #BTMcooks #croquemadame #brekky #baconmakeseverythingbetter - August 21, 2017
Grilling requires much prep but it’s all worth it. Chicken kebabs, tuna skewers, and pigs in a blanket on the menu today. #grill #kebabs #cookingoutdoors - August 20, 2017
Dubbed my new favorite sammich “Spamzarella”. Two slices of sugar-free bread, one topped with #Spam and mozzarella slices on the other, both toasted open-faced until the cheese starts sizzling and then combined to make the most perfect semi-cheat snack. #makemeasandwich #sugarfreebread #sammich #BTMeats - August 16, 2017
