Antipolo is always a good idea for a quick change of scenery. The Pilgrimage Capital boasts great cafes and restaurants, a wealth of scenic views, outdoor activities, and even a thriving art scene you wouldn’t want to miss. But first, coffee.
If ever you find yourself in this weekend spot, make sure to visit Antipolo’s cafés. This particular cafe has floor-to-ceiling windows that will spoil you with amazing views.
What a great time to be a coffee lover! Located on the same street as the famous Pinto Art Museum, Playlist Café is a new cafe gem in Rizal that’s worth the drive. In contrast to Pinto Museum’s Mediterranean architecture, Playlist Café’s got a modern, industrial touch that complements the contemporary aesthetic of Sierra Madre Street.
Playlist Café is also reminiscent of those towering, cozy cafés in Seoul, South Korea. Once inside, you’ll definitely feel like you’re about to have a meet-cute in the two-story building. It boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, black accent indoor lighting, vintage outdoor light fixtures, and more black, gray, and brown accents all-around. It’s also got a beautiful front garden and an observation deck.
The café offers more than just a simple hangout spot for friends and big groups. Playlist Café’s most frequented spot – the balcony area – possesses a picturesque view of the Manila skyline. So if ever you’re going on a day trip to Antipolo, it’s wise to stop by the café before calling it a day. Treat yourself to a souvenir selfie against Manila’s backdrop as a reminder of your quick refuge.
Cozy Alfresco Dining and Humble Coffee Choices
Playlist Café lives up to its name: relaxing coffee house music that you can enjoy with their excellent comfort entrées. Aside from the soothing tunes, their indoor and alfresco settings are certainly one for the books. Laced with big wooden tables and gold-accented steel chairs, this place makes for a great event venue for parties and small gatherings.
Meanwhile, the balcony-slash-observation-deck also combines a couple of cozy seating options: beanbags and soft black leather couches. Overlooking ahead is the beautiful and romantic postcard view of the Manila skyline. Make sure to witness the sunset because there’s no other viewpoint more stunning than in Antipolo.
Great Food for an Amazing View
Playlist Café also boasts an extensive menu of coffee, drinks, and dishes. If you’re visiting in the morning, a sip of Spanish Latte or Americano is your best bet to energize you for the day. Couple it up with a brunch meal like their Pesto or Creamy Carbonara pasta dish.
Lastly, for an evening pig-out, they also have crowd favorites including chicken wings, Fil-Mex nachos, lechon kawali, and crispy pata. For more options, you can check out their extensive menu here.
