Tagaytay Weekend: My Kind of Monday Morning

Tagaytay is one of the nicest places to be in the morning, especially during the cooler months. Being able to spend a quiet Monday morning in Tagaytay sure beats rush hour traffic, a barrage of emails and a full to-do list. A yummy breakfast at a lovely restaurant overlooking Taal Volcano makes the morning even sweeter. And so, that’s what I gave myself as a birthday present last February!

Good morning, everybody!


I realized just now that I don’t have a photo of the view from Restaurant Verbena. But take my word for it, it was a gorgeous morning with just enough sunshine to make everything beautiful, and a little nip in the air that made us feel like we were actually taking a break from our real lives.

The package we purchased from Deal Grocer came with breakfast for two, and the little guy still gets served free breakfast at hotels. As Mr C would say, “That’s a lotta savings!”

English Breakfast Tea for me, since I don’t like barako coffee
Danish pastries and banana bread


As expected, the little guy wanted pancakes. Mr C ordered the Tinapa Omelette and I had Huevos Rancheros. The servings were huge! If you plan on having breakfast here, make sure you’re hungry!Breakfast at Restaurant Verbena includes coffee, tea or hot chocolate, and a mini buffet of fresh fruits, juices, and assorted breads. While waiting for our food to be served, we started munching on bread and fruits. I love bread, and so I was beyond happy that we could have as much bread as we wanted that morning. Yes, this is why I’m fat.

Huevos Rancheros (PHP390.00)
Gently cooked in a Spiced Bell Pepper, Chorizo and Tomato Salsa and served with Garlic-Roasted Potatoes
Tagaytay Tinapa Omelet (PHP360.00)
Creamy Omelet with Smoked Tinapa, Garlic Rice, Parmesan-Baked Tomato and Tagaytay Pimiento Salsa
Country Pancakes (PHP360.00)
Two Fluffy Pancakes, Breakfast Bangers, Scrambled Eggs, Bacon & Maple Syrup


I would have wanted to get more bread, but since the breakfast plates were so heavy I didn’t have room for it anymore. Instead, I had a small serving of fruit and juice. Nothing like something sweet to end a satisfying meal.

Almost done!
Too full to function LOL


We all really enjoyed the yummy breakfast at Restaurant Verbena, and our stay at Discovery Country Suites. The staff was very accommodating and cheerful, which is a huge plus. I definitely want to stay there again so we can experience their other rooms, and the rest of their breakfast specials. I love that Tagaytay is just a short car ride away. It’s my favorite place to go for an instant escape. Maybe I should start planning our next trip!
