If you were ever in a rut for where to have an awesome laid back brunch south of the border, this list should fix that problem for you in a jiffy (and cause major cravings!). Without further ado, here are Phili’s top nine picks for where to have a laid back weekend brunch in Tagaytay!
First up on the list is Java Jazz, a very rustic, dare I say earthy little coffee shop tucked away inside the heart of Tagaytay City. Known for its exquisite coffee selection and Filipino-American breakfast choices, Java Jazz makes for a great brunch spot. You’ll find that this quaint little cafe, reminiscent of a personal art gallery, boasts equally exquisite pieces of art. It also leans towards a more modest and humble approach to decor and aesthetics. Think wooden interior and warm, earthy colors.
Located at 442 Tagaytay-Calamba Road, Sungay West, Tagaytay City.
2The Wild Juan
All-day breakfast, a fully-stocked bar, outdoor seating, and Wi-Fi?! Sign me the heck up! The Wild Juan might just be the undisputed king of casual dining with its laid-back feel of the city and its delectable offering of East-meets-West cuisine and extensive bar selection. Need we say more? The Wild Juan also happens to be a bed and breakfast on top of being one of the best brunch spots in Tagaytay!
Quite possibly my favorite out of the list, Tsokolateria brings you a culinary experience unlike any other. Take in the view that’s a sight for sore eyes while filling yourself with the hot chocolate concoction they’re famous for. Tsokolateria also happens to be a grand boutique bed and breakfast, in case you were wondering. So when you’re done stuffing yourself with the sinfully delicious grub, you can collapse in a mountain of pillows and sleep the food baby away!
4Dreamland Arts & Crafts Cafe
There is no shortage of dream-catchers at one of the best brunch spots in Tagaytay that’s unique for its hip coffee and arts joint. Dotted with crafts and trinkets straight out of a dream, you’ll be surprised at how easy it is for you to find yourself comfortable within this cozy little nook’s warm and creative space.
5Breakfast at Antonio’s
Okay, so maybe every entry on this list is my favorite! Breakfast at Antonio’s is the epitome of elegance, taste, and should very well be written right under the word “brunch” in the Merriam Webster dictionary. Its modern, crisp interior and its curated selection of the finest, meatiest dishes make it one of the best brunch spots in Tagaytay. It isn’t a celebrity-favorite hotspot for nothing! Wine, dine and get lost in the charm of Breakfast at Antonio’s.
6Bag of Beans
If there was ever a word I’d use to best describe Tagaytay and its scenic locations, ethereal would be a pretty good contender. I don’t know about you, but driving down to Tagaytay always gives me a sense of escaping all the clutter and stress and entering a little piece of paradise. Stepping into restaurants as beautiful as Bag of Beans is something everyone can find solace in, and it’s easy to see why.
When you’re not busy taking photo ops around the place, your mouth is full with its rich selection of Filipino and American favorites. I’m sure this will be a must-visit on your list of the best brunch spots in Tagaytay.
7Nanay Cirilas Kapeng Barako
Everything about Nanay Cirila’s screams lutong bahay, and we couldn’t be any happier! Could a piping hot cup of freshly brewed kapeng barako and a clay pot filled with bulalo and other fixings be any more worthy of brunch award? Yeah, thought so. Indulge in simple yet delicious food when you dine at Nanay Cirila’s!
Italian cuisine aficionados, rejoice! Cafe Carmencita is here to satisfy our cravings for all things Italian. Their specialty? The dessert menu! Packed with freshly baked cakes worthy of their own pedestal each. Cafe Carmencita brings together the usual brick-style interior most modern Italian restaurants are known for while bringing the fresh, outdoor element people come to Tagaytay to enjoy. For about PHP 1,000 for two, this place isn’t only affordable but one of the best brunch spots in Tagaytay.
Located at Aguinaldo Highway, Tagaytay City
9Concha’s Garden Cafe
A little birdy told me that this cafe actually belongs to Pinoy television heartthrob Alden Richards, but that’s beside the point. (Just thought I’d give ya’ll a heads up since, apart from the awesome-sauce brunch menu and view of the lake, people almost always leave the restaurant with a photo of Alden after having their meal).
Concha’s Garden Cafe is every Instagrammer’s dream and every Filipino foodie enthusiast’s dream. Come through, eat, drink, and be merry with your favorite dishes growing up served steaming hot and ready to be devoured.
