Restaurants and cafes that capture the hearts of foodies whose main destination is the cathedral in Antipolo, the famous Hinulugang Taktak, or other Rizal travel destinations are not new to us; but this one definitely is! A concept store and a cafe in one in Antipolo, Kreatib Hub + Café is the newest to-go place of people who love both food and art!
Rustic interiors on point.
From stickers to postcards, they’ve got lots of artsy stuff.
Here’s an aisle of hippy clothes and also a motivating dressing room.
Operated and managed by two sisters Rexielyn and Rona Santiago, this concept store and café is an idea that stemmed from their hobby of arts and crafts. The whole area consists of different racks with different products, including stickers, beauty products, home accents, accessories, clothes, and a lot more from different online sellers on social media. For those who love to shop and dine at the same time, this place was practically made for you!
Don’t be shy to borrow those brushes and create art; it’s free!
Obviously, Kreatib Hub and Café takes its name from the word ‘creative’. Here, you can use their “Kreatib Nook” to draw, sketch and paint with their art materials – for free! One cool thing is that they choose the most creative work of art at the end of the month and hang it on their wall!
A cup of latte while painting? Perfect for de-stressing. (Php110)
This cafe amps up the artsiness from time to time with art workshops, like painting workshops. This is especially great news for the people who live in or near Antipolo because they won’t need to travel to Manila or Quezon City anymore when they want to attend workshops or just need a café where they can hang out.
To foodies, hanging out means eating out, as well. Here are our favorites from their menu:
Never an ensaymada without overflowing cheese! (Php60)
Most cafes in the metro serve different cakes, but Kreatib Hub + Café does things differently by serving ensaymadas instead, which are sure appeal to anyone who loves desserts! They have Ube, Nutella, Oreo, Ensay-matcha (that’s a matcha-flavored one), Cheese, Almonds, and Black Ensaymada (which consists of activated charcoal powder from Go Black).
They’ve got this flavor for strawberry lovers! (Php155)
Now that’s a combo: the Cookies and Cream Frappe, Php155, and Oreo Ensaymada, Php60.
It’s not a café without awesome beverages! Kreatib’s iced cold drinks are legit thirst quenchers! They’re healthy, too, because they are served with Chia seeds instead of pearls or crystals.
We love the chia seeds that go with their iced drinks.
We tried their iced chocolate drinks: Choco Taro (Php140), Choco Strawberry (Php140), and Choco Matcha (Php145), all of which are unique and will really suit a sweet tooth’s tastebuds.
Vanilla Matcha Frappe (Php165) and Ube Ensaymada (Php80), anyone?
Their frappes are just as delicious. We tried their Vanilla Matcha, Strawberry, and Cookies and Cream, all of which made our afternoon extra-sweet!
Kreatib Hub and Cafe’s cookie shots are either served with milk or with ice cream on top. Either way, they are so good that it was easy to gobble them up in no time.
You can also rent out this hub as a venue for your small and special corporate or family events! We also heard they are going to introduce more dishes on their menu like salads and sandwiches. Time to add this cafe and art hub on your itinerary when you visit Antipolo!
