When you’re at my age you’ll probably need to have that time off to stop and smell the roses once in a while (tho at my case I notice its becoming a regular thing these days). I find it relaxing to drive in Tagaytay, dine in and sit for hours while conversing with the husband. Feeling mayaman paminsan-minsan hehehe. But I guess there’s nothing wrong with it so long as I’m not pestering anyone with my little lavishness.
Last Monday, I went on extended vacay to savor a day out while everyone is at work. I find it peace and quiet to go out as early as 8am, except for the early Monday blues I am so ready to welcome a brand new day. I’ve been planning for so long a breakfast date with the husband but none of those I planned had happen so far, so, it’s one of another first for us based on my recall.
Our first stop was this quaint coffee shop at Tagaytay-Calamba Road. I learned about Java Jazz Coffee Shop at some blog articles I read sometime last month but because my party always preferred pizza and quesadillas we didn’t have the chance to visit. It’s easy to miss this shop if you’re not too familiar with the place but if you happen to know the church of Ina ng Laging Saklolo and its neighboring T-House it sits right next to it, so, slow down a bit once you hit the two landmarks.
The place is a revelation of its own especially its dining area. By the way, I mentioned dining area because the place is a lodging house too for those who wish to stay overnight. Tho I already saw photos of it online I was still awed seeing everything on my own –the Sining sa Sahig, which is the main attraction, is something that set this coffee shop distinctive amongst its rivals. And because we have the place by ourselves that time I captured everything unscathed.
This place really has its own beauty and charm!
And since we came here for breakfast we pleased our tummies with filling breakfast fare at its very affordable price yet filling size.
I remember our coffee went first –we both got their house blend Café de Tagaytay P99. I have to admit that I was not really blown away by its aroma, it’s flat. I was expecting more to it but it wasn’t bad either so I guess it’s fair for what you pay for. Maybe I’ll try to order Tsokolate-eh the next time.
Our coffee pairing was none other than the usual hot pandesal with cream cheese P99, other than my choice you have the option to go for peanut butter, jam and I forgot the other two. Hehehe
We’re not leaving the place of course without sampling its hot meals, besides you know how I love breakfast, a full breakfast that is.
Beef Tapa P99 for the husband
While I enjoyed my Spanish Sardines P99 to its last bite, the serving is quite generous for a single serve. 🙂
We even stayed even after finishing our hot meals; I love this part because it gives us time to communicate, to talk about everything and anything under the sun. It gives me some unsullied air to take breathes and release the anger. I’m easy like that I just need a good meal to stop thinking about the world. I just need time to restore my senses. And I just need a good company to smile back and laugh it off!
Java Jazz is a must visit from now on. 😛
