Cafe Agusta: Santorini-Inspired overlooking Cafe and Bar (San Roque Antipolo Rizal)

Antipolo, Rizal, Philippines

The family has been eager to escape the city and find solace in an al fresco cafe after a whole year of being locked at home.   Antipolo being one of the nearest provinces outside Metro Manila was an easy choice for us and apparently, for many others too as most cafes were crowded for the weekend.

Fortunately for us,  Cafe Agusta was able to accommodate us for a quick lunch.

Cafe Agusta is very spacious.  It has an air-conditioned indoor cafe area which most guests preferred.

Our visit was just barely after Christmas so decor were still there.

While the coziness and coolness of the cafe was inviting, we stuck with our preference and chose the indoor al fresco area instead.

I can imagine this place to be livelier at night....

especially, the al fresco area which was now under the intense heat of the afternoon sun.

Cafe Agusta Scenic View

The cafe overlooks Antipolo which was still full of greens. 


The food took almost an hour to arrive so we were able to explore all areas and realized that the best time to dine there for the santorini al-fresco area with overlooking view would be around sunset to night time so it wouldn't be so hot.

There were a lot of unavailable items in the menu so we weren't explore as much as we hoped and ordered several of the same items. 



Insalata Agusta
Insalata Agusta (325 php)

For starters, we had the Insalata Agusta.   The price was very reasonable for this good-for-sharing  bowlful of mixed fresh greens, green beans, corn kernels, tomato, cheese, grilled chicken drizzled with its homemade orange dressing.  


P.S. For those who have a bit of an OCD for cleanliness, the tableclothes in the indoor al fresco area are noticeably stained and don't seem to be replaced regularly. 




Creamy Pesto with Grilled Chicken
Creamy Pesto with Grilled Chicken (350 php)

The Creamy Pesto with Grilled Chicken is a delicious plateful of cream pesto pasta with generous strips of chicken breast. 


Salpicao Di Manzo
Salpicao Di Manzo (460 php)

The Salpicao Di Manzo is the priciest selection in the menu and also a must try! It was served hot with fragant garlic aroma.  The beef tenderloin cubes were so tender and juicy that every bite was so pleasurable.  It is also comes with vegetables and steamed rice.

Chicken Parmigiana
Chicken Parmigiana (325 php)

The Chicken Parmigiana is our favorite amongst our orders. The light tangy homemade creamy tomato sauce together with the cheezinesss (of mozzarella and parmesan cheese) perfectly complements the crunchy breaded chicken breast.  The chicken breast was also soft and juiyc to bite and not dry or tough at all.   


Tsinoy Foodies Verdict

The food and ambiance made our trip to Cafe Agusta worth it.  But, the service could be improved more.  Honestly, the patience of my companions was really tested while dining here.
