6. Have Coffee

The cold weather of Tagaytay makes it a perfect spot to have a good cup of coffee while savoring the breathtaking view of Taal Lake and Volcano. Aside from the famous Starbucks Coffee, another popular coffee shop in Tagaytay located along the ridge is Bag of Beans. You can find it along the national highway. The one we tried is the one in "Charito's By Bag of Beans" which affords a stunning view of the Taal Volcano. Have their famous house blend coffee or the Kapeng Barako ng Batangas while munching on their famous pancakes. What else could be better than that?
