We absolutely loved this place! Cheap food but really good. Apart from that, they have beautiful paintings as decorations. They also change them every once in a while to promote the artists. It feels home-y and comfortable here. A true gem hidden in Tagaytay.

Cheap food. Got the lechon kawali but it tasted like fried liempo. Laing was so-so. Tsokolate, in fairness was good. Good to eat here if you happen to be in the area and if you're looking for cheap but filling food. I woudn't go all the way to Tagaytay for this place though.

Towards the direction of Picnic Grove and DAP (Training Center of the Development Academy of the Phils.) I bumped into this sort of cafè - restaurant. It made my Tagaytay trip a bliss! We should have more of this simple, laid-back, peaceful, "artsy" cafès and not of those touristic sorts, expensive places. We need to support more of this 'mom... More

I love the drinks and the place is filled with great art works! :) As for the food, they can be further improved. But worth it for merrienda/snacks. :)

The cafe is quaint and cozy. You'll be treated with not just sumptuous desserts that go along well with their Filipino brewed coffee but also feast your eyes with various paintings. We were a big group when we visited and we chose the low lying table and sat on banigs (Filipino traditional mats). I ordered Barako coffee and malagkit with... More

Room was small and dank! Shared bathroom was pretty grim. Cafe is miles for anywhere. Owners locked us out of the premises with an iron gate when we arrived back at 11pm. They hadn't given us a key or mentioned a curfew or any kind of lockdown. We had to mount a wall and jump down so we could get... More

Java Jazz is one of our favorite stops in Tagaytay. They make the best salabat (you have the option of having it mild or strong) and their Cafe de Tagaytay is also good. The shop also features beautiful artworks and is located near an artist's studio/gallery. You can also buy pasalubongs inside the cafe. Food is so-so but good enough... More

The place looked promising, cute and not too shabby. That was about the only thing they have going. First off, the toilet/washroom was straight out of a horror movie. Think the filthiest, dirtiest, most stinky toilet you could picture in your mind. We have our share of travels around the world, been to a variety of restaurants, but this, my... More
