The perfect place to hang out in Marikina where there are delicious ice-cold frappes served with Italian dishes, comfy sofas and chairs, fast wifi and power outlets for laptops, and where less people go to to save you the noise and hassle, would be the city’s Biksa Coffee.
Located along Gil Fernando St. cor. Dragon St. in Marikina City, quite near Sta. Lucia and Robinsons malls, the place is pretty isolated. While at the street of Gil Fernando, the landmark of Dragon St. would be the only Banco De Oro in the area. You won’t miss it! If you’re going from Sta. Lucia, it’d be on your left way past ‘Tapsi Ni Vivian‘.
Like I said, the place is REALLY cozy and spacey. You’d be cold without a jacket, but the comfy sofa chairs give too nice a feeling that you’ll forget about feeling too cold. Aside from the wonderfully designed cafe that emits a very relaxing ambiance, the staff are pretty accommodating. The prices aren’t bad, either!
Well, my brother and I usually go here to work (quiet, cozy, fast wi-fi, power outlet and delicious food and drinks d’oh) so we don’t really order lots of food. We kind of stick with the frappes and cakes. One time though, we ordered the Mozzarella Pesto Sandwich and given our tummies being comparable to 2TB hard drives, it wasn’t as belly-filling as we thought for 155 PHP. But let me say that it was really tasty and left me wanting for more. Problem is, my wallet kind of gave up on me >.
For the readers, I’d recommend their I.C.U. (Iced Choco Unleashed) for 149 PHP, and Bolognese Pasta for 169 PHP. If you want to know more about their menu, prices, etc., just visit their website at http://www.biksacoffee.com/.
See you guys when I see you!
