Café Lupe Restaurant was established in 2003 by Mr. Alvin M. Carranza. The first Café Lupe Restaurant was located along Guadalupe Bridge and within Guadalupe Seminary because the owner is a devotee of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Their menu is a Filipino-Mexican fusion, from tacos, paella, quesadillas to kare-kare.
Antipolo branch is operating since 2009. Café Lupe Restaurant at Antipolo City has a scenic view overlooking Manila, including Marikina, Eastwood, Ortigas and Makati City.
This cafe is just an hour to 2 hour drive if you’re coming from Taguig, but it’s worth it once you see the view and tasted the food. It is along Sumulong Highway, Antipolo City near the Yellow Lantern cafe. They have KTV, bar, roof deck lounge and rooms if you want to stay longer.
We had soft tacos, Paella, baby back ribs and onion rings.
I am so happy I celebrated my birthday at Cafe Lupe. It’s a calm Tuesday night, few people are in the al-fresco dining area. DJ Snake’s Middle is playing on the background so I was dancing around (lol). I am mesmerized with the view, the hanging lights, the cute van, and the heart-shaped floral backdrop.
I am so happy because we have something like this near Metro Manila. If you need a quick, as in really quick getaway, Antipolo is just there, ready to be explored and enjoyed. I am in love with Antipolo!
