February is your one excuse to be as cheesy as you like with your significant other, without necessarily being judged for it. Why? Because everyone’s doing it – no matter how cliché it is. By now, you’ve probably searched some of the most romantic restaurants, some of the sweetest songs, some of the most perfect presents – but if you’re not necessarily the conventional couple, you’re probably looking for something different to do. Here’s a list of 8 romantic cafes around the metro that are perfect to check out in honor of Hearts Day:
Designer Blooms Café
T Molina, Alabang, Muntinlupa, 1781 Metro Manila
Forgot to bring your date flowers? No worries; there are fresh flowers everywhere! This cafe has an easy-going, bright vibe going on, especially given the colorful interiors.
Ideal for: happy-go-lucky couples
Restock Coffee & Curiosities
7635 Guijo, San Antonio Village, Makati, 1203 Metro Manila
Restock is a quirky little café, complete with good music, contemporary art, creative walls, and a chill vibe. It’s a surprise little nook in San Antonio. Restock is nowhere close to your average café, and definitely worth checking out.
Ideal for: eccentric couples
102, East Capitol Drive, Kapitolyo, Pasig, 1603 Metro Manila
Walking into Epic is like walking into a cabin in the woods. Shelves with all sorts of trinkets, bikes hung up on the walls, notes hung up on a corkboard… Epic is such a little delight. What was even more of a delight was their delicious Marshmallow Latte!
Ideal for: bookworm couples
Local Edition Coffee and Tea
Mayfair Mansion, 116 Perea, Legaspi Village, Makati, 1229 Metro Manila
Local Edition changes their theme every so often. For right now, it’s Echoes – which highlights connecting in a deeper sense. Make sure to take part in the exercise at the front counter; you’ll definitely brighten someone’s day. You can even purchase a handmade post card and have it mailed right from there. Pro-tip: their Azucarado is pretty magical.
Ideal for: contemporary artsy couples
Café Mary Grace – Greenbelt
Central Bus. Dist. G/F Greenbelt 2, Esperanza Street, Ayala Center 1223
If you don’t sense the vibe of Mary Grace as soon as you step in, you’re guaranteed to get it once you’re seated at your table and looking at all the little notes through the glass. Whimsical vibe, romantic interiors, and great comfort food – who would have thought you could find that right in the middle of a mall?
Ideal for: secretly cheesy couples (make sure to leave your own mark – ask the waiter for a notepad and a pen)
WoWa Kitchen x Café
Equator Complex, 56 Bayani Rd, Taguig, 1630 Metro Manila
WoWa has a very homey feel. Christmas lights, picture frames, old books, jazz music. It’s tucked right out of the city, which makes it nice and quiet – ideal for a date. Their food was really good too! That French toast though…
Ideal for: low-key chill couples
The Coffee Project
Ground Floor, Wil Tower, Eugenio Lopez Drive, South Triangle, Quezon City, Tomas Morato, Quezon City
The coffee project is like a café right out of a page of a fairytale that takes place in the middle of a secret garden. Pretty plants and flowers hanging from their lights, and ambient lighting. There were two areas at this café – one that resembles an outdoor patio, and one that resembles an indoor café, complete with pretty paintings, and everything. This is a must add to your café bucket list.
Ideal for: whimsical couples
1103, 113 Mother Ignacia Ave, Quezon City, 1103 Metro Manila
Love is truly in the air from the second you walk into Kandle Café. It’s the perfect café for when you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, but not go too far out of your way. Go for the back porch and think a chill day out with greenery, tropical music, and good conversation. If you’re not feeling coffee or tea, you can even opt for sangria or a bottle of wine. Heart balloons, Christmas lights, comfy couches – where can you go wrong?
Ideal for: dreamy, adventurous couples
