Tagaytay is one of the quickest and most pleasant getaways for city folks in Metro Manila. There are so many beautiful hotels like Discovery Country Suites and Taal Vista Hotel plus great dining spots like Antonio’s. I’ve been lamenting the fact that’s its missing an all day dining place that served great food ever since Breakfast at Antonio’s closed around 5 years ago. When I heard they had reopened at the same exact place, I immediately added it to my list, just looking for an opportunity to try it again.
W came directly to Breakfast at Antonio’s after picking Lauren up from school for our quick getaway. Good thing there were just a few cars only since it was already a bit past 1pm plus it was a Thursday.
Once you enter the place you’ll be tempted by the display to your right of their produce, meats and other products they make themselves. We decided to just come back the next day and buy before heading home.
The best places to sit are in the outer area beside the windows, which gives you nice views of Taal volcano. You can also feel the nice breeze on a nice day like ours. The chairs and tables are wooden and fairly large. One of the best things the do is spread a white paper table cover and provide children with crayons and drawing materials, so they can occupy themselves.
We quickly scanned the menu and ordered something for Lauren first since she was getting a bit peckish. We got an Egg and Hash Pancakes (P240) for her, two big pancakes, hash brown and usual scrambled eggs. She requested for some extra BACON on the side, I think it was around P100-P125 for 4 slices, not a bad deal.
Here is Lauren tackling her plate with gusto, giving a big nod to their burnt sugar syrup.
I was having a difficult time picking one single item from the menu, there was just so much I wanted. I finally settled on the Eggs Florentine(P400) because I love, love eggs and also wanted some spinach. Two muffins topped with generous slices of smoked ham, perfectly cooked eggs and Hollandaise sauce. A slice each of griddled cinnamon pineapple and banana on the side.
While taking the photos, I chanced upon the amusing plating of my order. It definitely put a smile on my face. The eggs were perfect and I have to say I enjoyed this more than any I’ve had in Manila.
Irene went for the Chorizo Bilbao with Mushrooms Omellette (P400), sliced chorizo, mushrooms, onions and cheddar cheese. Irene loves chorizo and the one in this omellette certainly met her standards. Irene loved the chorizo so much she bought packs of it the next day.
We went back the next day to buy stuff before going back to Manila and it was crazy. Parking was quite hard so Irene just hopped down and bought while I stayed in the car. We were saying to each other that it was a good thing Breakfast at Antonio’s was our first stop the day before.
Breakfast at Antonio’s is one of my favorite breakfast places ever, too bad it a ways away in Tagaytay, so anytime you are there you should have a meal here.
