Bag of Beans has always been one of my favorite spots in Tagaytay. I love that it feels so cozy. The rich, dark colors were always soothing to me so when my brother informed me that they have a new branch opened in Twin Lakes, I immediately added it to my list of places to go. Last week, I finally had the chance to visit it.
This is the front door. It's so welcoming in its pristine white colors. I also love the little details they have all over the place. The colorful hat was just too cute.
You may also dine al fresco though I'm not really a fan of it. I feel that dining with flies is not the best way to go. However for those who don't mind it, Bag of Beans has a pretty set of tables and chairs set outside.
The Bag of Beans at Twin Lakes has two floors. I stayed on the first one instead of the basement simply because it was full downstairs already.
I had the pumpkin soup for my starters. It was pretty good. It was creamy and not overpowering. It also had bits of cinnamon from what I tasted which was perfect.
This was my view while having my soup.
I also had their famous apple pie and it was pretty darn good. However, this solidified the fact that I really am not a fan of apple pie. I haven't been the first time someone gave me on when I was 20 and 15 years later, I'm still not a big fan.
Now this Norwegian Grilled Salmon (Php430) was a WIN! It was sooo good that I ended up eating the entire thing by myself. Yep, no sharing here.
For those who would like to see Taal Lake, there are also chairs set outside. This is a good spot as long as it does not rain. When it does, better run inside because there is no roof to cover the area.
They also have a pasalubong center inside the cafe where you can buy Tamarind candies or pastillas candies. BUY IT! It's worth snackin on on the way home.
