Sit & Zip Garden Cafe

Last week, I organized a bloggers party at Charming Tagaytay Vacation Home. We spent two days in Tagaytay. It was great seeing them go to the South for a change. On our way home, they asked me to have a stopover at a coffee shop near my place. The first thing that came into my mind is the Sit & Zip Garden Cafe.

Thoughts about the Sit & Zip Garden Cafe:


  • They don’t have WiFi but they have lots of board games! I think it’s a great place to actually talk with your friends.
  • The ambiance is good but they don’t have a general theme. It’s a mixture of nature, bohemian theme (dream catchers and tent) and random stickers on the glass wall.
  • The meals and beverages are affordable. It’s good for students!
  • They have a big serving – you can share the drinks with your friends!


  • It’s hot inside. They need to lower the temperature of the aircon during the afternoon.
  • The people are courteous but they are slow. I know that it’s made to order but we are the first ones to arrive there. It irks me to see other guests being served first. I hope they will have a number system (first order, first serve).
  • The Frappe is too sweet. My friend specifically mentioned that she wants the sweetness to be 25% instead of 100% but it’s still too sweet.
  • The Pink Lemonade is okay but I can still sip some powder from the bottom.
  • I wasn’t able to try the meals but my friend mentioned that the burger is messy. I guess there’s too much cheese. Maybe they can put it on the side too.
