We were looking for a breakfast place other than the usual and the reviews online brought us here. The parking was good only for 2 cars (hehe, big deal?) but we managed to park at the opposite side of the road. The place welcomed us with other goodies that they sell like coffee and sweets. The dining area was very nice. It has a chill vibe and very home-y.

The menu is extensive as they offer meals from breakfast until dinner. I ordered cheesy yema pancakes (P99) which is a stack of pancakes with thinly spread yema and sticks of cheese. I was actually expecting really cheesy pancakes but that's just it. They could have also placed a thicker layer of yema to add more oomph to it.

For my coffee which is supposed to be the highlight of my meal, I ordered Cafe de Tagaytay (P99, add P20 to make it decaf). It came with a small packet of brown sugar and creamer. The temperature was just right, not too hot, but the flavor is totally missing even with the creamer and sugar added. My friend told me it's too milky but to me it was bland.

But on the bright side, the servers were very nice and polite. They make sure to attend to your needs as fast as possible.

But I still want to try other meals next time but I will definitely skip the breakfast items and try other coffee instead. Maybe go back to my usual Cafe Mocha.

Another place you can go to that's not the usual is Java Jazz. Very quaint and artsy little coffee shop which we almost missed since it's a bit hidden by trees.

4 stars for their coffee.. really delicious! You should try the Almond Rocaccino and even the Cafe de Tagaytay was good (It's a milder Kapeng Barako).

3.5 stars for the kesong puti pandesal - please ask them to toast the bread more.

3 stars for the pancit canton with lechon - very simple didn't quite fancy this one that much.

4 stars for the silvanas. Good with the coffee. They also have the silvanas with ice cream.

You just need to watch out for the diving mosquitoes if you plan to stay outside. They have no airconditioning as well and it was a bit hot and humid inside. Might be better to come here during the colder weather or late afternoons.

The place is not hard to spot on since it's along the highway but my friends and I used waze and we were directed to a wrong address. haha. The place is simple. There are paintings on the wall and guests will sit on the floor like in a japanese restaurant. The food is just fine, same with the food served in other coffee shops. Nothing fancy really.

White mocha and coffee milkshakes! Love the drinks and love the ambience. Cool tagaytay air hits your face while drinking these superb milkshakes! Haven't tried the food though but definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

Hot weather calls for a refreshing glass of Mocha Frost. Ice blended mocha topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate covered pretzel sticks. It was good and pretty cheap for P99. 128513

Perfect place to chill (and play cards hahaha, Cards Against Humanity FTW!128514) with friends. A nice alternative if you wanna skip Starbucks or the usual coffee shops. Wish they'll have aircon coz it's too hot inside.

They have nice paintings on display too.

Artsy vibes, slow music... So quiet & calming... Nice chill place

Tsokolate-ah(95)... Rich , creamy & really tasty ...from tablea ( must try)

Ice dark choco (95) is just too sweet... Not to my liking

Finger foods we ordered a platter of squidball is doughy instead of bouncy, kikiam & fries both crispy ... Not too bad at 99

Breakfast platter of ham, bacon(taste like ham) & scramble egg(bland) with 2 hash browns( so crispy) at 159... Was just okay...

Really love the no frills artsy ambiance , service was efficient

It's a small artsy place beside T House Hotel. Since we wanted light snacks other than Starbucks, we had their coffee + pan de sal with kesong puti. 128077

Good food, good ambiance. Will come back to try their other menu offerings 128513

Since Starbucks and Bag of Beans have become the default choices when having coffee/hot chocolate in Tagaytay, I opted to try a new one. We happened to pass by Java Jazz and noticed that it's a small, unassuming place which is very unlike the noisy Starbucks so I told my husband to give it a shot.

It was a hot chocolate made from tablea for me and an americano for him. Their tablea, i love! So rich and tasty, I wanted to get more. It is served in a very small cup, maybe equivalent to a shot glass so it was really bitin for me. Maybe next time I'll try their food.

The place was also artsy but no frills vibe, similar to how artists haven cum restos look like in Baguio. The service can be a bit slow though.

I just had breakfast/lunch (brunch) at my cousin's place in Tagaytay near picnic grove and decided for a cup of coffee or a frappé somewhere. I asked my nephew for a nearby coffeeshop other than Starbucks. He said there's one called Java Jazz. It was a pretty small place with a wide selection of good food and coffee. To cut it short, my nephew and I dined in and enjoyed our frappé. Their frappés are served with ice cream on it. It was something unusual and it's very affordable. Way better than Starbucks, I suppose. 128077128077128077

The only thing that kept me away from clicking 5 stars is due to their average service. I mean, it was not bad, because they were accommodating. However, when I asked about the two waitresses about their best seller, they didn't know how to answer me. They can't even tell me how one kind is being made. I just thought that it's appropriate for them to know what they sell because they need to market their product, especially for a first timer like me.

Still, I'm giving it a 411088️! 128522

I was looking for a different restaurant to try in Tagaytay. Java Jazz held the 2nd spot in Trip Advisor for best restaurant in the area so we had our Sunday brunch there. We sat at their biggest table farthest from the entrance to accomodate our family of six plus a two-year old toddler.

It was the first Sunday of January and we were all enjoying the cool Tagaytay weather. Bulalo is just perfect so we ordered that for sharing. Each one of us also had their rice bowl. I had the Beef in Teriyaki Sauce which I remember as being quite tasty and the beef not rubbery. 128513

I was quite happy with their coffee selection as I was tired of always ending up in Bag of Beans whenever I'm in Tagaytay. I had my sister get the Almond Roccacino while mom and I had their tsokolate-eh. We loved the tsokolate-eh so much that we bought two packets of tablea they sell. A staff said they get it from San Ildefonso in Batangas. Their waiters are attentive and got all our orders right. 128077

The meals are reasonably priced within P99 considering that any place in Tagaytay charges more than double. The same goes for their beverages. Did I mention they have plenty of coffee-based drinks, hot or cold, to choose from?

I also like the low-key vibe of the restaurant. It's artsy but cozy at the same time. Paintings adorn the far left side with two low tables Japanese style so you'd be sitting on a banig. Perfect tambayan for a group of friends out to chill over a cup of joe.

They really don't have parking but you can park right in front where there's space for well, just one vehicle. Be prepared to park sa gilid lang ng kalye. Just like what we did. 128521

They serve breakfast and merienda so will time my next visit to try those and their other coffee-based drinks.

We wanted hot drinks and light snacks before leaving the cool weather of Tagaytay but we did not want to settle for the usual coffee shops. Checked looloo and one of the highly recommended places was Java Jazz.

It's a cool, artsy little place by the side of the main road. At 12 noon on a Sunday, we were the only customers. A few other customers joined us halfway through our meal including a foreign couple.

Tried their tablea-based choco drinks with toasted mamon, champorado with tuyo, cheesesticks and stir fried tofu. Everything tasted good except for the tofu sauce which was too salty for our taste.

Overall, it's a good place to relax while having a cup of hot choco, coffee or tea. It does not have a view of Taal but the quiet and cool ambiance makes up for it.

Cheap place. Good food. Great ambiance since there's paintings everywhere by local artists. We stayed here for an overnight trip (backpacking style). Ambiance at night was pretty awesome. Especially a cup of tableau chocolate with matching chilly-weather in Tagaytay 128525128516

Surprised by the wide range of food and drinks available and its cheap price! It's also adorned by paintings from local artists which you can purchase. Nice place to hangout because it's not crowded but parking can be a challenge.

coffee time: cafe de tagaytay + chocolate cake

place: looks great, nice artsy ambiance (no surprise there since the proprietors are artists, i think)
coffee: fresh, good (note that their best seller - coffee de tagaytay is already sweet so not for those who take their coffee like john snow, the wife had to order an americano)
service: good
n.b.: parking's a bit limited
