It’s been a while since I last blogged about food reviews. Work has been very busy lately, but our interest in visiting interesting and unique restaurants hasn’t waned. Two weeks ago, we came across Third Space Studio Cafe in Banawe corner N.S. Amoranto, Quezon City and thought the place looks artsy and cozy. Call it a collector’s haven, if you may. The cafe has trinkets of treasures: vintage pieces, odd decorations you wouldn’t imagine would look good when put together, and different sets of dining tables and chairs in one setting. There’s no wonder why it’s called “Third Space Studio Cafe” in the first place!
Review of Third Space Studio Cafe (Banawe, Quezon City)
We came here out of convenience (its location is near our home) and mostly because we wanted to try more of their food. Apparently, the ambiance is such a great considerable factor to why this cafe is a must-visit. The owners like collecting things like frames, old furniture, lighting pieces, and various carefully curated decors that can certainly pique one’s interest. There’s also a jukebox, toy vending machine, and vintage wooden horse.
Third Space Studio Cafe is a good venue for a casual first date. Natural lighting is ample, and the tables are spread out enough that you don’t need to listen to the group next to yours. It also works well for a family dinner. Seats are comfortable so patrons can stay a longer time going down memory lane together over food and drinks.
Food in Third Space Studio Cafe turned out pretty average for my taste but it was fine for Louie’s. Fish and Chips (PhP 195) weren’t as crunchy as I liked, the Roast Beef Rice Meal (PhP 175) served in beef broth gravy wasn’t anything to be excited about, and their Okinawa Milk Tea was too sweet for my liking. An iconic dish we saw on Third Space Studio Cafe’s menu was the lechon burger, but it wasn’t readily available. It could have been a good candidate for being the star of our meal! We hope to try it next time.
Price for Value:
While the cafe decors didn’t look cohesive, they strangely work. “Third Space Studio Cafe is the result of random and pleasant coincidences. It is a product of being given the chance to create, being presented with the opportunity to do something very fun, and the will to collaborate with other artists.” We enjoyed the concept and creativity put in the exhibition. As a whole, this cafe in Banawe is worth going to. The food and price for value could be better.
