As for gastronomic delight, Tagaytay Highlands has several restaurants and cafes with fine dining experience. Highly recommended is the buffet lunch at the Veranda which would surely challenge your intestinal capacity.

Not everybody can afford the membership fee to the country club. Best way is to find friends who are members and ask them to lend their membership rights (Thanks to my friend Arlene for the many wonderful Tagaytay Highlands memories!)

The cottages feature contemporary interiors, accentuated by artifacts of the rich Cordillera culture. Adorning the walls are antique gayangs (spears), gongs, tapis, headgears and beaded jewelry made by the major tribes of the Cordilleras: The Jhalois of Benguet Kankanaeys of Mt. Province, the Kalingas, Isnegs of Apayao, and the Tingguians of Abra.
Works of local artists such as Jordan Mang-osan add character and color to the executive and presidential suites. The artworks depict the tribal people's way of life, thus injecting a native, homey feel to the place
Then BCC's now famous raisin bread first made its appearance in the Club's even more famous Verandah – Long-time BCC member, Soccorro Merril, said “merienda” time at the BCC in those days just had a few members on the Verandah having coffee, but often wishing there was something to eat with their coffee. “To address the wishful thinking, Kate Reed one day presented them a raisin loaf, made from an old day family recipe. It made everyone's day, and went on to become a staple for the coffee-drinking Verandah set”.
And so, “from a merienda staple of old, it evolved through the decades into the trademark loaf most anyone who visits the BCC has to have. Who would ever have imagined, more than 50 years ago, that the simple merienda loaf would one day be a part of the must-have, must-taste “Raisin bread” not found elsewhere.
It was inaugurated last November 16, 2006 and was named the “Raisin Bread Shop”.
The Raisin Bread Shop now offers a wide variety of homemade cakes and pastries.
Raisin Bread Shop's Operational Hours: 7:00AM - 10:00PM DAILY
