Tagaytay is one of the most famous places for weekend getaways and sometimes, it’s even a place people impulsively go to when they’re simply craving a bowl of bulalo with a view of the Taal Lake. But if you’ve been to Tagaytay enough times and want to try something different, we found a semi-hidden restaurant inside a boutique hotel called Sweet Knot Haven.
Sweet Knot Haven is located inside La Bella, a boutique hotel in Tagaytay that’s known for its romantic Santorini-like ambience. The restaurant itself has white walls, wooden accents, pebbled tiles, and warm lighting fixtures. What makes Sweet Knot Haven even more eye-catching are the surrounding pine trees that make it feel like you’re in Baguio—sans the almost eight-hour road trip.
Sweet Knot Haven menu and prices:
Besides the beauty of the place, you can enjoy Sweet Knot Haven’s dishes that are mostly categorized as Asian fusion cuisine.

You get to choose how you want the egg cooked either as scrambled egg, sunny side-up, or as an omelet with tomatoes, onions, and cheese. This also comes with a serving of hot coffee or hot chocolate.
