Grilled tuna not well seasoned ; so is the mashed po that came with it.

Takes forever for an omelette. There were 8 of us and all the orders came on time except for the omelette... 128542 and when the waiter came, it was bacon with egg instead of the sausage and omelette that we ordered....

128518 YAY (must-try):

Nothing. Hated this experience.

🤔 MAY (can try):

Other restaurants.

128530 NAY (avoid):

Service is sooooooo slow. The other food came out on time but it took them what seemed like half an hour to serve the Shepherd's Pie, along with the Steak & Gravy one. When they arrived, the filling was way too hot and the crust was soggy, so the pies were obviously just microwaved - no reason to have taken that long. Obviously the waiter forgot even if he repeated our order beforehand.

And the others waiters SAUNTERED to our table when I was following up the order.

FINAL VERDICT: "Disappointed because I actually like your other branches. I'll go to those instead. Too far from Tagaytay proper anyway. We only passed you on the way back from Canyon Woods."

After visiting Calaruega last Wednesday afternoon we decided to stop at Twin Lakes to sip for a coffee at Bag of Beans. Honestly, it's my first time to visit this branch; 2 floors with great view especially when you're seated at the veranda.

I had caramel machiatto while my friends had cappuccino and pesto penne. I'm not fan of pesto pasta so I brought the spanish bread that we bought in Sonya's Garden to have something to eat while sipping my coffee.

I enjoyed the cool wind brushing my face and swaying my hair plus the coffee, though its a bit sweet. The pesto is bland and has bittery taste because they included the stem of basil leaves in making the sauce. We added parmesan cheese but its not enough to get the taste that we want.

The white rustic designs of the tables with some fancy decorations on the wall makes the resto's perfect ambiance. Service is great too, everyone is friendly.

Prices: coffee is 150Php and the pesto is about 250Php.
The resto closes at 9pm.

I just tasted the best pancakes amongst all other pancakes i've had 128561 i didn't expect their pancake to be that great, i thought it was just some ordinary pancakes but i underestimated it, i ordered their chocolate chocolate chip pancakes topped with mangoes and served with syrup on the side and sprinkled with chocolate morsels, it was really light and fluffy and not to mention moist and rich in chocolate flavor, mangoes complemented it well, it felt like heaven at every bite, i enjoyed it so much i forgot i was with my partner 128517, oh i forgot we also ordered their greek salad which was great too

This easily became my favorite branch of Bag of Beans. It's smaller in terms of land area but has two floors and an amazing view overlooking Taal. The second floor's interiors is my favorite with its white-washed wooden walls and rustic ornaments. So instagram worthy!

For the food we ordered tapsilog and porkloin with pepper sauce. Both were good. The tapsilog's beef was tender and flavorful. Can't say much for the porkloin as it only tasted like breaded porkchop with sauce. For dessert, we had panna cotta which was an absolute delight! Not too sweet but leaves a yummy lingering aftertaste. Best part about the food was the hefty serving!

Giving them 5 stars even if our server misheard and thought we ordered 2 servings of tapsilog. He kind of seemed annoyed after i said i just ordered one, he said he heard us say 2 orders and walked away before i could finish explaining. 🙄 But other servers were okay. We weren't following up but they kept apologizing when our food was taking long because the meat was frozen. Overall it was a good dining experience.

We were on our way to Nasugbu, when my tita got hungry. So we stopped here for coffee and a quick snack.

I wasn't that hungry so I ordered my most favorite Filipino miryenda! Fresh Spring Roll. The description of the dish was very enticing. They had me at SHRIMP. 127844

But woe is me, when my order finally came. It was not the fresh lumpia I had hoped for. It was practically a fusion of Vietnamese fresh spring roll, Filipino lumpiang sariwa and a twist of Italian.

The whole roll itself was very Vietnamese with the glass noodles and rice dough wrap. The dipping sauce was your typical peanut sauce for your lumpiang sariwa. And the deal breaker would be that one basil leaf in the roll. I mean, I love basil. It would be good in a bagel, pizza, pasta or on chicken. But it didn't work for me on the spring roll. 128563 Like eww 128534128547
I tried dismantling it but the basil leaf's flavor had already spread on the adjacent veggies and meat. 128554

I started regretting my order when I saw how happy my aunt was with her club sandwich with all sorts of fruits and veggies. 128557

Service wise, the crew was very friendly and accommodating. The place was definitely gorg! And the view, the view was AMAZING.

I'm definitely revisiting this place with Maverick Christopher P. And I'm staying away from the fusion dishes. 128514

Clear blue skies, puffy clouds, cool breeze, chirping birds and country music playing... How bout while eating pancakes?

And again, bag of beans here at twin lakes is one of the best and beautiful option for breakfast if going near the woodside--tagaytay. Last review i made here i mentioned about the pancake that i saw. And now i am trying that eye-catching pancake.

128204 128525blueberry pancake
What's cool with this is that the pancake batter is infused with blueberries--so the pancake literally looks blue. It got real good serving of blueberries in syrup--canned though. The pancake was not really stellar, it tastes homemade. Wildflour and ihop got better; but the experience is amazing anyway, the taste is a little bit grainy. There's a slice of orange for a sweet twist. The maple syrup is diluted. Tastes a bit weird. I'm already happy without the syrup but if you like a wet pancake, go ahead.

128204 cashew butter
Oh. Interesting they have this. 200pesos per 240g.

Oh. It's the first time to try alfresco alone here. Really good. Even on a 10am the wind is considerably cool. 128516

Woke up very early to Celebrate my birthday and Mother's Day this morning. Had breakfast buffet with my loves! Place was breezy, calm, cozy and earthy... Weather you pick to seat inside or outside. The comfort rooms are clean and has flower scent that I love! The food is not too pricy and everything I like in pinoy breakfast food was here. And has quality as well! Every food counter has attendants and they were very attentive! Love the flowers everywhere. The umbrellas the lights with flowers. The ambiance! Worth the travel. I like shabby rustic things. There's a cute motorcycle outside that is made of wood! They are open from 6:30-9pm buffet is only for weekends! They have bakery near at the other side of entrance!

This review is long overdue but this place is superb. Our family tried the buffet area and it was okay. Will definitely go back to try other cuisines.

Why would you love this place?

That's because the view is better here. The air is fresher, no need for air conditioning, the interior is more homey. That is why this is definitely better -- or best rather than the other bag of beans. Also still could not compare this from its neighboring restaurants at twin lakes. Saturday morning could be a possibility for you to visit this place. This branch does not have a lot of diners too (cause this branch got no buffet) well, its just enough for us to get our stomach filled with a good breakfast ala carte.

128204128525 pork tocino at PhP240
Appetite's way way up upon seeing this served in front of me. The sweetened pork got more portions of meat than fats. And the smell was really teasing me to gobble it all at once. But you know, we must eat with .. Grace in this place. Haha.
Apparently for me, the pickled veggies got more serving compared to my last visit and now it's rolled like a ball. Tomatoes and cucumbers for palate cleanser. Their eggs improved! Last time i remember parang plastic eggs. Now it was quite surreal. Haha.

Well, the witch that i'm with ordered pancake with blueberries. Aww... I think i have to try that next time 128539128523

This is by far the BEST blueberry cheesecake I've ever tasted. It has the perfect amount of the creamy cheesecake and the cold somewhat ice cream/whipped cream I really don't know but it tastes so good. You guys should try this one when you're in Tagaytay.

I also ordered Four Cheese Pizza it was not good i don't like the crust and its too pricey for me - PhP500 not your money's worth.

However, I loved their Fish and Chips it has a good amount of serving and the sauce is delicious!

128522128076 I love the interiors - country style/shabby chic/rustic.

Chicken and pork adobo was ok.

Tapa tasted nice, not too sweet.

But the one that really turned me on was the shepherd's pie! Sana un na lang inorder ko. Hehehe.

Food is quite expensive so I might treat Bag of Beans as... a treat. 128522

The place is IG-worthy. 10084️ (sorry, but I lack photography skills. haha.) It's a bit far from Tagaytay town proper but Im sure it is worth driving to.

My 2nd time @ BoB but my first time to try their shepherd's pie (and my 1st time to eat meat pie128517)... i liked it.

Here's our verdict:
Blueberry cheesecake -100841008410084️ (for me) not too sweet but too creamy 1008410084100841008410084️️ (mama's) she loved it
Shepherd's pie -1008410084100841008410084
Iced/hot cafe mocha - 10084100841008410084
Iced caramel machiatto - 1008410084100841008410084️ my mom loves it. better than __ daw 128517
BoB poutine - 10084️ my mom lived in Canada for years and she said it was just so-so
BoB burger - 100841008410084️ It was tasty accdg to my brother but it was dry
Choco milkshake and banana split for my kid - 1008410084100841008410084️ syempre, she loves it. haha.

You can have your photo-op while waiting for your food. No wonder it's pricey because you pay also for the ambiance. 128514

After searching for a comfy place to have breakfast, we ended up at Bag of Beans. Breathtaking view. Cool weather. Good food. Ordered for breakfast platter, pesto pasta and unlimited kapeng barako. The sausage from the platter was really good. The pesto pasta was superb. Overall, experience was great.

Of course after breakfast at Antonios, photo op muna Sa twin lakes 128540 glad there weren't as many people as I expected! It was our first time to park in the basement level. Tip - park in the lowest level so you'll be nearer the stairs, if you park right away, you'll have to hike back up the ramps when you're leaving Na.
Tried their iced mocha (pretty good) while hubby and mom got their brewed coffee. Also matapang, I guess it's because we're near batangas Na? 128522
Cute ambience, bright and homey.
You can also buy some bread and goodies before leaving.

After countless tries of convincing my parents to go up to tagaytay they finally budged! Nowadays its no joke to go to tagaytay as the place no longer feels like an escape from manila due to the number of people also trying to get away from the city hulabaloo 128569

I was only aiming to try this place and I targeted this branch out of three as I heard it has the best view among the branches. Was expecting to have brunch/lunch buffet which they were said to serve at 11-3pm but turns out they only serve this at the main branch. Heads up!

So we settled for ordering ala carte items. I had the sunrise breakfast which had two buttermilk pancakes, a cheesy omellete and a sausage. I was so full and happy after this meal of mine I couldnt believe how big the portion sizes were! The buttermilk pancakes were so thick and siksik and it definitely went well with the sausage 128077🏼 My family also enjoyed their own orders. My mom has fried shrimps, boneless bangus for my dad and for my sister the fish and chimps. Glad to say everyone left with happy and full tummies!

I encouraged everyone to try out the blueberry cheesecakes as there are constant raves about it. Definitely did not disappoint! More on the creamy side but felt very light. Took only a few bits but I would definitely come back for this.

I fell in love with the interiors and ambieance of this place! The first floor has very kitschy colorful interiors while the second floor has a very light and calming feel with all white chairs and all. Every nook and cranny is instagram worthy!

I recommend this branch even if the drive was far!

It's my first time going here at Twin Lakes and I was surprised at how near it is our house. We would probably be visiting this place whenever we're in Tagaytay. Their branch here is probably the best and prettiest, as well. Two floors with 2 completely different design and feel. The one upstairs is all white with lace curtains, wooden tables and chairs painted with white paint and "country style" furnitures. Hmm, also like sonya's garden but all white and minus the fresh flowers. This floor is perfect for families, bffs/girlfriends, titas 128518, and couples. And the other floor is more like a behaved "country" version of Vanilla Cupcakes. Artsy chairs, wooden tables and wall. This one is more for kids or young ones. I liked the white floor better because of it's relaxed feel plus the christmas decors and the christmas tree is really pretty and feels like home! 9786 (yes, this is a late review 128566128586)️

It's merienda time and though still not really hungry, Ony and I decided to eat because we are growing kids haha and it's christmas. Everyone is entitled to eat and not feel guilty about it! 128514 We ordered Beef Tapa and Apple Pie for sharing. Ony ordered the house blend coffee for a complete breakfast meal for our merienda. 128518

My aunt really like their tapa here so I kept on telling Ony that the tapa is really good. And yes, it was! Not the best tapa but the combination of the egg, garlic rice, atchara, and the sweet and tender beef tapa was just sooo goooood you will surely enjoy every bite of it. The tapa was very tasty!! 128076🏼

Since we were still craving for more Apple Pie, we tried their version as well but not the ala mode one since Ony doesn't like his pie cold or added with ice cream. He wants it hot and fresh from the oven. Good thing our apple pie was freshly made and still hot. We tasted it right away and it was good! Apple Pie craving finally satisfied? YES!!! The crust was not too thick, it's flaky and the apple filling was not too sweet and we enjoyed it. Good tasting apple pie!!! 128513128076🏼

Service was good. All the servers were attentive and nice. Will definitely be back here for sure for more breakfast food with a view!! 1285139786
