When taking a trip down south for delicious eats, you shouldn't limit yourself to the Taal-overlooking restaurants in Tagaytay. There are also great restaurants in neighboring places like Batangas. If you find yourself in Lipa, you should add Lucia's Cafe to your itinerary.
If you're passing by the Leviste Highway, you might dismiss Lucia's Cafe because it looks like a gorgeous house, but if you take a closer look, it's actually a cafe. The white house is adorned with garden lights, pots of plants welcoming you at the entrance, wooden tables and chairs, brick accent walls, and it even has a dainty swing set.
Because of its look, Lucia's Cafe makes for a great venue for intimate events such as weddings. Just look at this setup:
You can definitely still dine in at this place without booking them for a special event. They have a wide selection of salads, soups, and appetizers you can start off with, including Seafood Chowder (P120), Caesar Salad (P210), and Spinach Dip and French Bread (P245) on the menu.
For your main meal, you can choose from their all-day breakfast dishes like waffles and silog.They also have other meatier choices like the Roast Beef & Gravy (P295), Herbed Porkchops (P285), Cheesy Baked Salmon with Mashed Potato (P325), Chicken Parmigiana (P325), and the most expensive item on the menu you can splurge on is the USDA Ribeye Steak (P1,699).
You can also choose pasta, pizza, and sandwiches if you're not in the mood for rice or mashed potatoes. They have seafood dishes as well as meatless and meaty options like the Pesto with Grilled Chicken (P265), Kesong Puti Margherita (P310), and Philly Cheese Steak (P435), so any craving can be satsified.
For dessert, you can try their signature Lucia's Oreo Cheesecake (P180) and pair it with your choice of drink. Lucia's Cafe has coffee (hot and iced!), smoothies, milkshakes, canned juice, soda, floats, and tea.
