Bohos of the Philippines, listen up: There’s a place in Tagaytay where you can experience Bohemian living, from food to sleep. Dreamland Arts and Crafts Cafe is renowned for its stunning Bohemian aesthetic, a ubiquitous sight from the entrance down to every nook and cranny.
Once just a B&B, the cafe now operates 24/7, be it guests who simply want an IG-worthy snapshot, tourists with midnight coffee cravings, shopaholics looking for Boho trinkets, or those who need a place to stay.
Dreamland is best known for its two-story cafe, which serves Filipino and American cuisine. Bestsellers include local comfort fare like Dreamer’s Silogs (tapa, pork, spam, bangus), and tortilla wraps with your choice of tuna, beef, or chicken filling.
You may also request for a vegetarian wrap and mushroom filling.
End your meal on a sweet note with desserts like the Waffle Tower, Matcha Affogato, and smores that you can roast yourself.
Coffee lovers also flock here for their choice beans – a perfect match for Tagaytay’s cool and crisp weather.
Traditional seating is offered, as well as a more laidback, seiza-style dining area where guests can dine seated on the floor.
Putting a premium on “real connections”, Dreamland is a strictly no-wifi zone. If you want simply a hot cuppa and good conversations with friends, then this fits the bill.
Dreamland sells trinkets, souvenirs, artwork, and stationery items all made in-house by Indie Green culture artisans. Dream catchers come in all colors, shapes, and sizes. You can also purchase a dream catcher kit should you want to make your own.
The shop also sells sticker tattoos, pens, adult coloring books, keychains, accessories, bags, ponchos, boots, and more.
For those who would like to stay the night, Dreamland doubles as a bed and breakfast. Boho chic rooms for couples and families are available, as well as rooms with bunk beds for bigger groups.
Rates start at P2,000 per night.
