Cafe Esque may be one of the local coffee shops in Rizal with high traffic, and I understand why. It could compete side by side against popular international cafes, if I’m being honest. Where would you be able to find a coffee shop with Wi-Fi access, sockets, good food and coffee, relaxing ambience, both indoor and outdoor dining, a comfort room complete with bidet and toiletries that is open 24/7 while supporting local business? Only Cafe Esque! Never did I imagine to be able to find such an all-in-one coffee shop.
How to Go to Cafe Esque
Ride any Antipolo-Tanay jeep and tell the driver to drop you off at Ynares Center. The jeep should drop you off by a shed near CPR Building where Cafe Esque resides. Do NOT ride Antipolo Simbahan unless you are okay to walk (not recommended under the extremely hot weather conditions).
What to Expect in Cafe Esque
Cafe Esque has two floors, and each floor has its own outdoor dining where smokers are allowed to stay. The first-floor al fresco dining had vertical plant walls, while you could enjoy a small glimpse of Antipolo in their second-floor al fresco.
Their indoor dining is greatly well maintained. The cement-furnished walls, wooden furniture, warm lighting, and classy paintings give an atmosphere that would encourage you to be productive, not to mention that they have free Wi-Fi access and available sockets to those who need it.
What to Eat in Cafe Esque
I stayed there for a long time, so I ordered two meals: one for my lunch and one for my merienda. For lunch, I had their best-selling chicken alfredo pasta for PhP 195, which I highly recommend if you’re a creamy pasta lover like me, and a 12 oz hazelnut latte worth PhP 130. It was one fulfilling lunch, indeed. Their latte was so good I was tempted to buy another for snack time but decided to go with another drink for variety.
After about three hours of stay, I ordered their tossed fries (PhP 95) and a 16 oz choco mint blast blended coffee. If you are a mint lover like me as well, I swear you’d love that drink.
