Cafe Antonio

My recent trip to Dumaguete allowed me to visit new restos and coffee shops. One of those is Cafe Antonio, now my favorite because of its very homey and spacious interiors, reminiscent of Spanish restos I often see in foreign films. The colors are vibrant in hues of orange and brownish reds. I particularly find the artworks hung on the walls really worth looking at, especially the glass mosaics the owner made. Even the windows are characters on their own. Well, it’s not a wonder that the entire coffee shop can be an artwork in itself, as it is really an old house (I think one of the heritage Spanish houses in the city), which was transformed into a commercial place. The good thing is that the owner retained its quaint antique charm. Here’s a photo of one of the windows:
