After dinner (ahh, fullness!) 🙂 now it’s time for a good dessert! Very near Taalena where we had dinner is the very cozy, alfressscooo Bag of Beans Cofee Shop & Bakery. I know, I may already be the last one blogging about it (but at least maybe the latest! Hehe!) but can you blame me? 🙂 It’s my first time in the place though I have heard and read about the place already.
Bag of Beans is suppose to be a cofee shop and bakery. And so I thought!However, maybe because it has gained popularity in its service all through these years, it has now become, a restaurant and in fact offers its amenities for conference.
It is “alfresco” resto and bar open from breakfast to dinner and even after. I was asking the guard when we left what time does it close and he said they do only after the last guest is gone.
I was there at night and for people who find meaning in lush garden and nightlights, in whatever form and nature, you will fall in love with the place. In a place like Bag of Beans, you may probably say forget about food and let me have the place for a moment! 🙂
On second thought, though, you may not be able to forget about the food. Though I only had caffe mocha and apple pie topped with vanilla ice creme, the full-seating capacity of the place when I was there (dinner time) proves that the place is hit!
The two main dining halls are carefully crafted for a great dining experience. It provides an alternative to al-fresco dining while having the same feel of the lush green outside. There are dining tables complemented with comfy sofas just in case one may choose to be more casual.
Outside is a combination of metal garden sets and roughly finished heavy-wood dining tables and chairs which I liked! Around the garden are colorful lamps which definitely adds to the ambience of the place. Unfortunately, the birds in the aviary were already asleep. Quite. Perfect time to chat and talk to people close to you…
For my Bag of Beans experience, no matter how short, it will definitely be well remembered.
And as the lamp will come to an end, we retired for the night and headed home. In peace. Hayy, Sarap!! 🙂
