As time passes by, more cafes, grills and food pubs are sprouting in different places. And as it goes, our standards are heightened up. People really wanted to go to coffee shops which have, of course, good food, budget wise, striking interiors and unique theme.
Yesterday, I was in the middle of searching for food to eat and I also wanted to buy a shirt. So I tried to message some of my friends to pig-out and we came up with Tagaytay.
The first thing that popped-up in my mind is Dreamland Arts & Crafts Cafe. I’ve been here three times before and would always recommend this to my friends when they would ask me about to-go-places in Tagaytay. I was thrilled when I saw that they did renovations in the place.
Dreamland Arts & Crafts Cafe is located at Purok 157, Calamba Road, Tagaytay, 4120 Cavite, Philippines. It was used to be a bed and breakfast before. It’s undeniably a bohemian inspired cafe and you would really feel hippie-ish in the place. You can eat and the same time do some arts & crafts session here. Upon entering the place, my eyes can’t stop wandering even though I’ve been here before. As I said, they did renovate 75% part of the place, so it was kind of new to my eyes.
How to get there from Imus or Manila:
-Ride a Tagaytay/Nasugbu Bus and tell the driver to drop you off to Tagaytay Rotonda Junction. When you get to Tagaytay junction, just walk straight left, that would take around 3 minutes and that’s it.
A Friendly reminder: This cafe is no-wifi area zone so better work out your interpersonal skills here.
They already have a place for arts & crafts session which is located above their dining area with a fee of P200.00 per person. Lights, dream catchers, round tapestries and bohemian decors will embrace you while nurturing your artsy side.
I mean, who would be having nightmares with these loads of dream catchers in the place right? Basically saying, this place is your haven.
Let your creative mind wander with these fabric swing chair.
You can also do your own bracelets, necklaces and dream catchers using these stuff. YAY!
Paint and make music
And here are the rules..
Let’s go and check the menu..
We ordered Chocoloco Frappe, Hot Java chip and DIY S’mores since we already ate heavy meals somewhere in Tagaytay also. DIY s’mores from the word itself, do-it-yourself, well, you will be the one to roast the mallows using the flame from the blue stuff which is called sterno and I swear it was pretty enjoyable. They got a bit pricey when it comes to their drinks compared before and they also have service charge.
They also have dining area at their mini 2nd-floor with mini staircase which would require you to do indian sitting. (Shoes off please!)
After filling your stomach with delicious meal, you can head out to their mini stalls which have different bohemian accessories, clothes and stuff.
If you really want to feel the breeze of Tagaytay, then you can stay at their patio.
I suggest you to come at night to appreciate their interiors and theme more. This place really suits for your family and friends. Go ahead, do road trips to South and consider this place in your Must-Visit list.
