I’ve been looking for instagrammable spots around my town and was lucky to discover Pixcone in Taytay, Rizal, an ice cream shop near a hospital where my father and I are “frequent, loyal customers.” Really, why have I found this only now?
Lucky for me, I only had to cross from Primark Town Center in Cainta to Gen. A. Ricarte Street and find tricycles that could lead me to Pixcone. From those coming from the side of SM City East Ortigas, there are Taytay-Cainta jeepneys that could take you there. Ask if they can drop you off at Taytay Doctors or anywhere near it, as Pixcone is just a minute away.
They had two floors, enough for a surge of students coming from the center of Cainta. No worries if you prefer to eat outdoors, as there are also tables and chairs for dine-in guests.
Inside are more playful colors, with used electric-fan parts decorating the light bulbs. One part contained a wooden platform, with cute decorations on the wall perpendicular to it, though I’m not sure of its purpose. Performances, probably?
The second floor seemed to be a favorite spot among the students. There were more seats for group studies, a bookshelf, more murals, and pastries.
The choco almonds sundae (Php 69) plain and simple, but I enjoyed it nonetheless as almonds were my favorite. Paolo’s mojos (Php 88) was also worth a try, although I would have ordered a warped waffle, only if my diet allowed me to. An 8/10 for both.
However, I was surprised by how expensive this small cupcake was. If I remember it right, this costs Php 65 (or 95). A 7/10 for me.
