Christmas Breakfast at Cafe Voi La Tagaytay

One of our Christmas traditions is attending church service in Tagaytay every December 25 and after mass, we will eat breakfast. For the last few years, we ate at Breakfast at Antonio’s, Cafe Veranda at Taal Vista Hotel and Restaurant Verbena at Discovery Country Suites.


If you remember my post last year, we were supposed to eat a restaurant near Crosswinds but we ended up with Restaurant Verbena. But this year, we pushed our plans and off went to Cafe Voi la. It is a good decision too kasi puno parking ng Discovery Country Suites, mukhang marami na nakadiscover so marami na nagbreakfast din. Hehehe!




My husband ate at Cafe Voi La during their company team building and he said masarap daw ang food. We arrived around 8:30AM and there were only two occupied tables but some tables were reserved. So we were seated outside the restaurant which is not a problem since malamig naman sa Tagaytay. The restaurant interiors are quite unique and vintage, parang every corner is intagrammable.

The waitstaff gave us the menu and advised na breakfast meals lang daw available so hindi na kami nahirapan magbrowse ng menu. They offer rice meals, pancake, omelet, and American breakfast. For breakfast, I find the price expensive, the range is P295-P395 for rice meals and drinks are not included yet. We ordered Eggs Benedict P395, Garlic Longganisa P295, Garlic Beef Tapa P375, and Cafe Americano P125.


They served the coffee, longganisa and beef tapa first. My son ordered Garlic Longganisa, the meal includes homemade longganisa, jasmine rice, and two eggs. The serving is too big for a kid. The longganisa is just okay, masarap sana but it is too salty for our taste.


When we asked what is the best-seller, the staff said Garlic Beef Tapa and now we knew why it is the best seller. The homemade sirloin tapa is tender and yummy. It comes with jasmine rice and two eggs too.


I ordered Eggs Benedict and I was surprised when I saw fresh salad and fries because it was not stated in their menu. I was expecting poached eggs and ham with hollandaise sauce and cheese lang. Kakatikim ko sa garlic longganisa and garlic beef tapa, nabusog na ko so I was not able to finish my order so take-out. My son likes Egg Benedict too.


While eating our breakfast, one celebrity and one politician came to eat breakfast too. So it seems that it is popular sa may budget. Hehehe! The food and service are good but the price is not budget-friendly. If you are going to eat here, expect to pay P500+ per person. If ever we will eat here again, we will just order two meals since my son cannot finish his food naman so we can share.

P.S. After breakfast, we dropped by at Acienda Designer Outlet but unfortunately, it was closed pa. We don't want to wait for two hours for the 12NN opening so we just went home na lang.

Lunch at Cafe Voi La 


We were back in Tagaytay after New Year and this was our third visit during the holiday break. My husband needs to pick-up something in Silang, Cavite and since wala naman kami gagawin sa bahay, sinama niya kami. After that, we dropped by at Cafe Voi La just to have lunch and as expected ang dami tao. We’re lucky that there is an available table for us yung ibang vacant, nakareserved na.


I mentioned before na ang mahal ng breakfast meal nila and hindi lang pala breakfast, mahal lahat. Hehehe! We ordered Cheesy Pizza P395 + SC, Cafe Voi La Signature Satays P695 + SC and extra rice P90 + SC. Cheesy pizza has mozzarella, parmesan, and quick melt cheese.


For Cafe Voi La Signature Satays, you can choose chicken, pork, beef or the satay sampler. The price depends on the meat and the number of pieces that you will order. The meat was marinated in an infusion of lemongrass, turmeric ginger, and kafir lime. The meal includes rice and homemade peanut sauce.


The food is good naman. But this time, I'm not happy with their service, lalo na yung sa billing. Ang tagal and nakailang follow-up kami tapos pagdating ng bill, may mali pa so nirecompute pa. Then follow-up ulit kami para mabayaran na. After giving the money, ang tagal na naman para sa sukli. Tumayo na nga si hubby para lumapit na sa cashier at kunin ang receipt and sukli. We asked for the bill bago pa dumating yung namamasko. Yes, kahit tapos na holiday may namamasko sa restaurant. Natapos na nga sila magperform, hindi pa rin kami tapos sa bill.


Ang konti lang ng kinain namin pero when I look at the bill, konting dagdag na lang para na rin kami nagbuffet sa Balay Dako and Restaurant Verbena.

  1. I'm drooling! Matagal na rin since we visited Tagaytay and whenever we are there, I don't get to visit the popular cafes. Beef Tapa is my choice of Pinoy breakfast, just because!

  3. I love eggs benedict but Cafe Voi's is kinda.pricey though. Will try the beef tapa because Tagaytay beef have been known for its lean and juicy cuts.
