“The whole culture is telling you to hurry, while the art tells you to take your time. Always listen to the art.” ~Junot Diaz Let’s admit the fact that Filipinos love coffee. Some people love coffee so much that is a part of their everyday lives. A lot of coffee shops have opened in the last decade, making different types of blends accessible for all. Last April 1, 2017 was definitely a memorable day for me. And I wasn’t fooled (April 1 is April Fool’s day ) not at all. I took a commute from Park Square Makati to go to the opening of Romeo Art Café. It was a smooth ride for a fare of Php60.00. The place was small but dainty and cozy which makes it special for intimate gatherings, perhaps a romantic date or a simple catch up with friends. They serve good coffee and pizza.Not to be outdone, their fried chicken was very delicious. It's just the perfect blend like their coffee. There’s al fresco dining on the 2nd floor where you can also check out a lot of paintings and other pieces of art on display. There is also a collection of books to help you unleash your inner bookworm while waiting for your date to show up. The paintings are up for sale as well so if you feel like adding one to your collection, please feel free to contact Romeo Art Café owner.
Early on during the opening ceremonies, one would have noticed that it was also attended by no less than the Queen of Indie Films Ms. Baby Go and Ian De Leon (son of superstar Nora Aunor and an exhibitor). Cong. Juliet Cortuna, Allen Dizon, Lotlot De Leon, and Allan Paule were the other guests of honor. The other participating artists were Paul Dimalanta, Joe Hombrebueno, Menchu Arandilla, Al Perez, Ton Raymundo, Egay Jose, and the father of the owner whom the place is named after, Romeo Lindain. If ever you happen to pass by BF Homes Paranaque, be sure to visit Romeo Art Café. This place will make you feel like home again. Feel the cool breeze on your face, be enticed with the array of paintings and sculptures, read a good book with coffee cup in one hand and you’d be relaxed for sure.
