Looking for a way to dine in style? In Artisque Cafe, coffee and fashion enthusiasts will surely find this place as a much-needed haven. Located at Lilac Street, a well-known food hub in Marikina, Artisque Boutique and Cafe will not only satiate your coffee cravings—be prepared to shell out for more than just coffee, but for food and clothes as well!
Upon entering the boutique, you’ll be greeted by this large mural wall which was created during a live painting session. It certainly highlights the ~art~ in Artisque.
The Artisque Boutique
After that, shop to your heart’s delight as you’ll find rows and rows of blouses, skirts, bags, accessories, and more. From brands like Zara, Berrytops, Pull & Bear, and more, Artisque Boutique has the right pieces for you.
Trendy bags are up for grabs. However, if you’re looking to take it up a notch, Artisque also has original Loius Vuitton bags you can purchase!
From laidback t-shirts to girly blouses, you’ll surely find items that will suit your style in Artisque Boutique. If you want to try something on, there’s a dressing room near the cashier.
Just a few steps in front of the counter, you’ll find this shelf full of accessories. They don’t just sell jewelry, mind you. You’ll also find the perfect sunnies and shoes to complete your outfit.
For self-care junkies and makeup lovers, there’s also a small nook full of perfumes, brushes, and beauty products. From lip tints to mermaid brushes, Artisque seems to have everything that will make the makeup-obsessed swoon.

The Artisque Cafe
When you’re done with your shopping, chill and grab a bite at their cafe where you’ll find various cakes, pastas, sandwiches, and shakes.
True to their name, Artisque Cafe serves these aesthetically (and taste-bud) pleasing coffee. The latte art will probably give you second thoughts on actually drinking it. IG first, I guess?
Of course, also try Artisque’s cakes if their best-selling shakes aren’t enough to satiate your sweet tooth.
And for those looking for healthier choices, they have sandwiches that will surely ease your tummy while staying guilt-free.
Cookies and brownies are also up for grabs if you’re in need of a quick snack.
Finally, we reach the shakes. Again, another drink you’ll find hard to consume because of the pretty way Artisque serves them. Topped with pretzels, marshmallows and whipped cream, a single glass is more than enough to leave you with a full feeling.
For those looking for a heavier meal, their pastas will surely let you leave the resto with a happy tummy. In fact, the food they serve are also of reasonable prices especially given the hefty serving sizes, and not to mention their ~aesthetic~ presentations.
With Instagram-worthy dishes, coffee, and shakes that will satiate cravings and a boutique that houses trendy pieces, Artisque is the one-stop shop for both fashionistas and foodies.
