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

If you need a noodle fix, opt for soba noodles. Soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour and contain more fiber and protein than your regular noodles. It’s also high in a slew of vitamins and minerals that you won’t get from your regular noodles. #happyhealthyawesome #alternative #buckwheat #soba #japanesefood #BTMeats - June 26, 2017
If you’re in the mood for a sweet but healthy treat, chia pudding is always a good choice. I always have a jar of pre-soaked chia ready for snacking in the fridge. Today, I added chopped up strawberries, topped it with almond flakes, and sprinkled on some Stevia and cinnamon on top. #happyhealthyawesome #chiapudding #chiaph #sweettooth - June 22, 2017
Today’s big breakfast is a Keto-friendly BLTEA sandwich. Bacon, lettuce, tomato, and an egg in a freshly-baked almond flour bun. Believe it or not, all of it took just 15 minutes to make. Including the bun. #happyhealthyawesome #keto #highfatlowcarb #quickhealthymeals - June 22, 2017
