Newly Opened Cafe in Tanay: Triston 360 Cafe

This was the farthest cafe I had visited so far (I visited last December 16). In fact, it took me almost four hours to commute. But the pink skies and the experience were worth it.

How to Go to Tanay Triston 360 Cafe

I had to ask the cafe itself for instructions since it was my first time to go to Tanay.

I rode an Antipolo-Tanay jeep from a point in Ortigas Extension and had the jeepney driver drop me at Tanay Bayan. The tricycles there led me to the jeepney terminal that passes by some points in Marilaque Highway. (While writing this, I should have asked if they pass by Cuyambay).

From the jeepney terminal, I asked them to drop me off at Martessem. From there, I rode a tricycle that gave me a ride up to Cuyambay Arc (it cost me PhP 150 though).

If you’re cafe-hunting alone like me, I suggest that you leave as soon as you eat, as finding jeepneys and tricycles is more difficult at night.

What to Experience in Tanay Triston 360 Cafe

It was a simple cafe, nothing fancy. Their “theme” focused on their purpose and location—their advantage. It was a newly opened cafe when I went to visit, so many parts were still being constructed. But today I heard that they already have a stonehenge-inspired rock installation and a backyard.

From the cafe, you’ll also have a good view of Laguna De Bay and some Tanay mountains and fields. I thought I was unlucky that day since it was slightly raining and I wouldn’t be able to see the sunset. To my surprise, I was blessed with a burning pink sky.

Before I forgot: wear a jacket. Do not underestimate the cold air of Tanay peaks (which was what I did, and I regretted wearing a skirt that day haha).

What to Eat in Tanay Triston 360 Cafe

They gave me a lot of free food, so it was a surprising experience. I only ordered their continental breakfast (PhP 259) and blue layered iced coffee (PhP 128), but they also gave me tuna pesto, blue ice cream, and tea.

My orders were okay, but if I’d go there a second time, I would pick one of their pastas and a warm cup of tea. For tea goers, I would highly recommend theirs; I felt cozy after drinking, which was a great pair for a freezing body.

Cafe Dela Paz: An Indoor Garden Cafe in Angono

Cafe Dela Paz first caught my attention when I was on my way home from Trabi Cafe. I remember how the lights inside the coffee shop had my head turned, and from there, I told myself that this would be the cafe I will first feature for Angono as part of my passion project.

How to Go to Cafe Dela Paz

From any point in Ortigas Avenue Extension, ride a jeep going to Angono. Use Google Maps to determine if you are already nearby Cafe Dela Paz.

What to Expect in Cafe Dela Paz

If you are looking for a cafe with a rustic vibe, then I highly recommend Cafe Dela Paz. Plant decors surround the venue, creating a homey feel. It’s more of a cafe for hanging out than a coffice since plugs their sockets are already reserved for the cafe’s appliances.

And yes, it’s a nook cafe. Like all other nook cafes, a huge mirror—perfect for taking your selfies—covers a large part of their right wall to make the venue look larger.

What to Eat in Cafe Dela Paz

Their food is superb. For my coffee, I ordered a large caramel macchiato (PhP 145). For my meal, got their tuyo aglio olio with three pieces garlic parmesan wings (PhP 199), which I highly recommend. This is definitely now part of my favorites list.

I also ordered their walnut carrot cake (PhP 105). I’m not sure what I was thinking when I was already full, but this carrot cake was sure perfect as merienda.

A Quiet Coffice in Antipolo: Jiu Cafe

How to Go to Jiu Cafe

There are jeepneys going to Antipolo Simbahan, but I personally preferred a PUV since it would take to the PUV terminal, which is nearer to the place.

From the terminal, turn left and then go straight until you reach Jiu Cafe. Opening Google Maps would be very much helpful.

What to Expect in Jiu Cafe

Jiu Cafe is surprisingly spacious, perfect for meetings and gathers with 20–30 pax. Since I went there on a Thursday afternoon, I had the whole place to myself and was able to work peacefully. Add the soothing music and you will get a relaxing coffee break.

What to Eat in Jiu Cafe

I tried their salisbury steak (PhP 160), macademia sansrival (PhP 140), and iced blended double mocha (PhP 155). The sauce of the salisbury steak made the dish worth remembering.

On the other hand, I felt that the sans rival cake could have been better since I’m used to eating them frozen (so it depends on the customer).
