Gourmet's Cafe

Our family loves Tagaytay. This is why having our breakfast there was not surprisingly unique for us.

Our usual route has always been via Eton and Paseo de Sta. Rosa from SLEX; but nowadays, traffic in the area is usually horrendously very heavy. This, however, did not hinder us as we have Waze in tow. We took the original route via Carmona - Aguinaldo Highway.   Along the highway, we found this 30-year old cafe called Gourmet's Cafe and Country Store. 

Organic Tagaytay produce are available.

All-day breakfast and garden salads are part of their menu. 

We had Gourmet Salad with sicilian dressing. 

We were advised to choose from the packed/ready mixed greens in the refrigerator nearby. 

I ordered the Italian Style Adobo (Php270).

Braised chicken and pork meats were cooked in the Filipino traditional adobo.   Fresh rosemary was added that gave it  the  Italian twist.  Salted egg and tomatoes, and mountain rice were on the  side. 

Jun tried Continental Breakfast (Php270).
Home-made corned beef with sunny side up eggs and slices of bread.  Jun was satisfied especially in the strands of real organic beef. 

Bea ordered Filipino Breakfast (Php250).  She chose  beef tapa from the selection of pork longganisa or tocino, tawilis, dried biya or gourmet sardines.    Beef tapa was served with garlic rice and papaya relish.  Bea found the tapa so tasty and tender together with mountain rice. 

My apologies, we forgot to take a pic of it coz she was able to finish it in no time!:-)

Each meal came with  brewed coffee except for the salad, of course  😊

We also bought cabbage (Php60)  and pesto chips (Php70), and  a jar of Roman Garlic Spread (Php180).

Lastly, this poster caught my eyes as I like fresh tomatoes and I just realized a wiser idea in trying to add tomatoes in my fruit salad.
