Concha’s Garden Cafe is a cozy, Spanish-Filipino style restaurant located in a quaint garden. The place offers a relaxing experience thanks to their home-inspired dishes passed from generation to generation, reflected in how the owner, Gemma, aptly named the restaurant after her grandmother, her culinary mentor. It’s for families and amigas looking for a hearty breakfast by the gardens without sacrificing the feel of home. It’s not fordiners who can’t stand spaces that could easily feel crowded or tight. We recommend Bagoong Rice, Concha’s Old Fashioned Ensaymada, and Concha’s Spicy Beef Adobo Ribs. Our insider tip is to check out their nipa huts and wooden swing by the garden for a more unique, al fresco breakfast experience.

Bag of Beans is a big, rustic and cozy cafe and restaurant in Tagaytay with various places to hang out, either indoor, at a gazebo, or by the fireplace. They serve American-Asian fusion dishes specializing in homemade savory pies, breads and proudly local coffee. It’s for groups who want to hangout and enjoy the cool Tagaytay breeze. It’s not for people who want close attention from the servers. We recommend the Shepherd’s Pie, Blueberry Cheesecake and house blend coffee. Our insider tip is Bag of Beans has a second branch at the rotunda and a third branch at the new Twin Lakes Tagaytay, where you can enjoy dining with a view.

Charito is the secret spin-off sister of Bag of Beans. Named after its owner, Charito Antiquera, it is an upscale version of its predecessors. Bag of Beans specialties are still served, but Charito offers select European dishes. It’s for slow relaxed weekends. It’s not for people looking for a quick bite.

Balay Dako, meaning ‘big house’, is the newest addition to the Antonio’s group of restaurants that serves proudly Filipino food. It is a 3-storey converted restaurant where each floor features a specific section. (1) Comedor, the main dining area on the 2nd floor, (2) Silong, a private event area on the 1st floor and (3) Terraza, a semi-open bar on the top floor. Terraza of Balay Dako stands on its own with their signature cocktails and their mouthwatering tapas, pizzas and grilled items amidst breathtaking views of Taal Lake. It’s for beautiful brunch meals and nights out with family or friends. It’s not for people who want a more intimate and romantic dining experience. We recommend the Kilaw Sugba, Inasal and Pinakbet Rice with Lechon Kawali. Our insider tip is Terraza also serves single ‘meals for one’.

Chef Tony Boy Escalante, out of his love for breakfasts, created a spin-off of Antonio’s–Breakfast at Antonio’s. It serves all-day breakfast in a classic and elegant but casual Antonio home-style dining setup. The architecture and interiors of the place very well-adapted to its location, creating a space with an unobstructed view of Taal Lake and to catch the refreshing Tagaytay breeze. It’s for families or couples looking for breakfast or brunch with a view. It’s not for people who don’t want to queue as they don’t accept bookings. We recommend the Chorizo Bilbao with Mushrooms Omelette, Daing na Gindara, Fresh Corned Beef and their Hot Chocolate. Our insider tip is you might want to take out some of their baked goodies and jams from their in-house bakery.
