It’s Friday and I’m in love! 🙂
Since my boyfriend and I don’t get to have a lot of opportunities to go out on Fridays, he asked if we could spend some time together in Tagaytay even for just a few hours. He was able to go on leave, which rarely happens, so of course I said yes even when i know travel will be stressful.
We did not have concrete plans on where to eat but took the slightly difficult commute to Tagaytay.
Cafe Breton is found inside The Cliffhouse, a small but romantic complex that houses a few eating places namely: Buon Giorno (a fave!), The Lake Grill, Platito, Cafe Breton, Mochiko and Lunch Box.
The Cliffhouse is a short walk away from Starbucks and Leslie’s.
We decided to try Cafe Breton as the place looks warm and inviting–with the dim lights and homey vibe. It turns out, that was a great decision.
We could not understand the menu much and asked for assistance from the waiter. He gave his recommendations on their bestsellers so we ended up with this:
The Galette Breton (PhP 280) that I ordered tasted good. I like the thought that it has vegetables and shrimp inside the crepe.
My boyfriend ordered Breton Mozzarella Burger (PhP 235). It came with a burger of course with the condiments separated on the side thus making it look like a burger with salad. Pretty fancy idea, right? It tasted so good as well so I had a few bites off it. Haha.
Since it was a chilly night for me, I ordered Cafe Latte (PhP 110) and he got a Chocolate Milk Shake (PhP 125) which both tasted good. I am not a fan of the chocolate flavor for milkshakes though.
The Star of the Night was the Cherries Jubilee Flambe (PhP 135), a dessert good enough for two that features a crepe, ice cream, whipped cream, a lot of cherries and flaming (yes flaming!) caramel on top. I love the presentation!
The server did not make it exciting though and did not even warn us that it was hot. Minus points for that. She simply set it on the table and walked away afterwards.
We took our leisure time eating and taking photos of our food.
We also like the simple decor inside.
We enjoyed the food so much but we were not able to finish our dessert since we were full. My last stop is my coffee.
Even though we only had our phones with us for taking pictures, we made sure we had our photo taken by one of the waiters.
After paying the bill, we went out but it was raining pretty hard. We had no choice but to sit outside first and wait for the rain to subside.
We had a wonderful chill date and although Tagaytay is a bit far, we would definitely come back and eat at Cafe Breton again to sample their other dishes.

– We took a Dasma van from South Station and got off at Robinson’s Dasma
– We then took a Mendez bus and got off after the Tagaytay Rotonda by mistake
– We took a jeepney and got off at Leslie’s
– We walked a bit further until we saw The Cliffhouse
