Tagaytay's Dreamland Café Is Now at a Beachside Spot in Batangas
The place is still artsy.
Dreamland Arts and Crafts Café was a popular dining spot in Tagaytay known for their artsy vibe and rooms filled with dreamcatchers. In June 2020, the café's branches in Tagaytay and Batangas closed down because of the eruption of Taal Volcano and the ongoing pandemic. But recently, they've relocated to another area along the coastline of Batangas with a new name: Indie Green Garden Café and Coastal.
The owners of Dreamland Arts and Crafts Café built their family's ancestral house in San Luis, Batangas, and turned it into their coffee shop's new home. They now serve food and drinks that are made with healthy ingredients sourced directly from their garden as well as local farms around the community.
One of the things the popular spot is known for is their ternatea rice and tea. You can enjoy these under their blue ternatea canopy.
The interiors are just as artsy as Dreamland's—they still have numerous dreamcatchers displayed and vibrant wall décor and furniture pieces, but this time there are more plants. They also have an "Indie Green Living" zero-waste shop where you can check out their selection for groceries, home essentials, sustainable clothing, and more.
If you want to take a break from the city, Indie Green Coastal is the other half of the establishment. It's an eco-friendly resort where you can relax for the weekend and dine by the sea.
Indie Green Garden Café is in Poblacion, San Luis, Batangas (in front of San Isidro Parish Church, beside AlfaMart). It is open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. To make a reservation, you can call the owner at 0927-156-3319. For more information, log on to Indie Green Garden & Coastal's Facebook page.
