Bag of Beans Coffee Shop & Bakery Tagaytay

facade of Bag of Beans Coffee ShopMy first taste of coffee at Bag of Beans Coffee Shop & Bakery was in one of their coffee shops Metro Manila back during my college days. I’ve always loved a bold cup of coffee, and their coffee really hit the spot. But many of my friends who have visited that short-lived coffee shop told me that nothing still beats the coffee shop in Tagaytay.

When my brother suggested to get a cup of coffee after spending an afternoon at the Picnic Grove, he suggested that we try out the Bag of Beans coffee shop in Tagaytay. It was then that I remembered the comments that my friends said a long time ago, and I figured that this was the time that I finally check out what they meant.

Snack Time at Bag of Beans Coffee Shop in Tagaytay

Finding the original Bag of Beans coffee shop can be quite a challenge since there are now two Bag of Beans coffee shops in Tagaytay. The one located along the Junction Roundabout in Tagaytay is one of their newer coffee shops. The original one is still about a five minute drive from the Junction, right across the Swiss Chalet Apartments. You can view a map going to the coffee shop by clicking here.

Bold Coffee & Delicious Pies

Just like that short-lived coffee shop in Metro Manila I used to frequent, Bag of Beans Tagaytay has a wide selection of hot and cold coffee drinks and signature pies. They also serve an array of dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner at any time of the day. My brother chose to order their steak and gravy pie while I chose their apple pie. Of course, being coffee lovers, we both ordered their house blend brewed coffee.

Coffee and pie are the bestsellers at the Bag of Beans Coffee Shop

This coffee shop is known for its bold coffee & delicious pies

As expected, their coffee had a rich bold flavor that my brother and I really love. The steak and gravy pie reminded me of those meat pies that we used to have during our younger years in Sydney for snack. The apple pie didn’t have the iconic woven pie crust on top like you see in most cookbooks, but it was light and not too sweet. The apples inside still had a bite to them, which is just the way that I like it.

A Coffee Shop with a Garden

In terms of the quality of the food and coffee here, it was the same as the other Bag of Beans coffee shops in Metro Manila. What made all the difference was the setting of the dining area.

The coffee shop’s dining area is beautiful as it is relaxing

Instead of those usual lounge areas you’d find in most coffee shops, you’re transported into this large garden setting complete with wooden and wrought iron tables and chairs, towering trees, orchids and lots of other flowering plants. On either side of the garden are small wooden huts with windows made of capiz and decorated with curtains, cushioned benches and throw pillows. There are also cages filled with different kinds of birds located in the center of the dining area. We even managed to see a couple of large butterflies that decided to just drop by and take a sip of the nectar from the flowers here–something that I’ve never experienced in the Bag of Beans coffee shops I’ve tried in Manila.

While enjoying our afternoon snack, we were momentarily entertained by a group of children from a local orphanage who did a couple of song and dance number. Another treat not usually seen in their other coffee shops.

The quality of the food and the level of service given by the staff is but a part of a person’s dining experience. What completes the dining experience is the setting. That’s what I discovered to be the missing link in the other Bag of Beans coffee shops. They have the same quality of food, coffee and service. But it’s only in the original branch where you’re able to dine in such a romantic setting. It’s no wonder why despite the many Bag of Beans coffee shops in Metro Manila, people still flock to the original Bag of Beans coffee shop in Tagaytay.

  11. Wow! We have to visit this when we go home!
    I love pies. I hope it’s not too sweet, though…hehe

    • I actually found the apple pie a bit sweet, but nothing that a bold cup of coffee can fix. They also got those savory pies, like what my brother had in case you’re not really into sweets.

  12. A very relaxing ambiance. A great place to enjoy coffee with my loved ones and friends.
    Pie and coffee is an indeed good combination to enjoy the vicinity.

  13. Definitely a perfect place for coffee lovers… The place looks so awesome, parang nasa Europe lang ang settings. A perfect place to spend an afternoon with coffee especially when it is raining.

  14. We love Bag of Beans…it\’s our favorite breakfast place in Tagaytay! I haven’t tried any of their pies though, i thinks it’s time…thanks for sharing! ;)

  16. I’d love to chill in that place.. given all’s free! lol! (not a coffee lover here weird no? lol!)

    • Well, the ambience is free. As for the coffee, I know that they also have other kinds of drinks available. My brother and I are avid coffee lovers so we immediately opted for that. Thanks so much for dropping by.

  17. I’ve only been to Tagaytay once, but now that I live in Cavite, I plan to go there some time soon. I’ll keep this in mind. The place looks serene. I’m not a coffee drinker but I’m sure I’ll find something I’d like. :)

  18. what a relaxing place to have coffe and pie. I love this combination. my coffee w/no sugar and the sweet pie..

  19. The best coffee, barako, from Batangas and Cavite! Very cozy no? Perfect for Tagaytay\’s cold weather…the city has surely grown from the simple getaway hotel for horseback-riding we visit as kids living 15 minutes away, it’s now a tourist spot!
