Breakfast at Antonio’s | Tagaytay Road Trip

My friend, Cookie, bought some Deal Grocer vouchers for Breakfast at Antonio’s. So it was the perfect excuse to go on a road-slash-food trip. We finally made the Tagaytay road trip happen!

Our itinerary included the Mahogany Market and Bag of Beans. But first stop: Antonio’s.

The first time I went to Breakfast at Antonio’s, I was with hub and the kids. We did not eat though, only ogled at the beautiful place. LOL. I forced husband, however, to promise me we’d go back for a romantic dinner date. To date, the promise is yet to be fulfilled.

Anyhoo….

Upon entering the doors of Antonio’s, we were greeted with this wonderful anteroom that had one wall full of family pictures of, I presume, Antonio. I think this room sets the mood for the rest of the restaurant – beautiful and elegant, yet warm and welcoming.

Crosswinds Resort Suites, Tagaytay weekend getaway

Earlier this year, I bought a voucher through CashCash Pinoy for an overnight stay at Crosswinds Resort Suites in Tagaytay. The deal included accommodation in a studio room and breakfast for two. At 50% discount, I thought it was a good deal.

Besides, a no-kids getaway has long been overdue – six years, to be exact. So I got little protestations from the husband who willingly gave up one day of work.

Hub and I left Manila before lunch, and took the Eton City exit on South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) instead of the usual Sta. Rosa exit towards Tagaytay. The Eton City exit seems to be a less congested route. If you want to see the booming real estate industry (Eton City, Nuvali, Britanny, et. al.) in that part of the South, it’s the route to take.

We stopped by Paseo de Sta. Rosa, where the Eton City exit actually leads to. We checked out the outlet shops of Adidas, Nike, Speedo, Crocs, and Havaianas. I got myself a new swimsuit at 60% off at Speedo!

Anyhoo…

It wasn’t difficult to find Crosswinds. After entering Tagaytay from Sta. Rosa/Silang, we turned left towards Tagaytay Highlands and People’s Park (where the Tagytay Zipline is). We were at the main gate of Crosswinds in less than 15 minutes. Crosswind Resort Suites welcomeCrosswinds Resort Suites Continue reading Crosswinds Resort Suites, Tagaytay weekend getaway

Tagaytay Road Trip: Potter’s Ridge | Zipline

I love spur-of-the-moment things. And, most especially, this one! We went on a spontaneous Tagaytay road trip and stayed at Potter’s Ridge Hotel.

We’ve been meaning to go on a short trip out of Manila before school starts – maybe a Tagaytay road trip. But because hub is always swamped with work, we kept postponing the trip.

And then, a “pleasant” errand came up – Hub had to inspect a project site in Tagaytay! I thought the kids and I would tag along  in this Tagaytay road trip since it was a Saturday anyway. Then, of course, the next logical thing to do is to spend the night over since it would be Sunday the next morning.

So I immediately went online to search for hotels. The thing with having a big family such as ours – it’s difficult to find hotels that would allow us all (5 family members plus one yaya) in one room. Oftentimes, I’d be told to get two rooms, or settle for a more expensive family suite. I just wish hotels would be more family-friendly.

Then I found Potter’s Ridge through another blog.

Potter’s Ridge – don’t you just love the name? It’s actually named after the owner, Marissa Potter – a warm, friendly lady!

My family stayed at the Deluxe Family Room, which has a king bed and a twin. I loved the huge windows that open to a breathtaking view of Taal Lake  and the forests below.

Because it was a rainy day, the kids and ateJo were holed up and horsed around in the room all afternoon while hub and I visited the project site.

Happy!

It kinda sucked that all our plans of horse-backriding, kite-flying and Taal-trekking were junked because of the damp weather.

VGood even remarked: “We came here to watch Disney Channel and sleep???”

Sunday morning was cold and foggy, but it wasn’t raining anymore! Whoopee! We all got up early to have breakfast at the hotel restaurant. Continue reading Tagaytay Road Trip: Potter’s Ridge | Zipline
