We had late lunch after touring Pinto Art Museum.

They were only offering buffet menu and no ala cart dishes. 550PHp per person. You can also order drinks from their refreshments menu. Even though their choices were limited, it was still delicious.

Crescent Moon Cafe is already a landmark in Antipolo, not only as dining destination but also as an art space.

Weekend trippers love it here especially on Sundays because it's buffet day. What makes Crescent Moon adorable is its truthfulness of flavors. No nonsense preps, no fancy presentations---just good food.

If you come on a weekday, they serve chef's special, meaning only the freshest available ingredients their kitchen can whip up.

But whatever day you come, one thing remains constant & it's the restaurant's signature appetizer, the Alagao Wrap. It's a delicious mix of minced herbs & spices, dried shrimps, cubed mangoes & a lot more, all rolled in natural alagao leaf.

Crescent Moon is also a pottery workshop made by the masterful hands of Lenelle Abueva-Fernando. She's no less than the niece of National Artist Napoleon Abueva. Make space for her ceramics because they're really lovely.

There's nothing spectacular about the entire space. No cutesy decor, no architectural masterpieces. But its expansive space allow guests to breathe fresh air & wander around the lush greens that we surely lack in Manila.

Ask the Titas of Manila about it & they'll tell you it's worth coming here.

Tagaytay feels in just 35minutes!!

If you watched the cinemalaya film, "mariquina", it feels like the shoe shop there but with pottery HAHAHHA

We went there too early for lunch so we ordered merienda nalang.

We ordered the Suman and mango which was awesome! Sweet without needing to dip it in sugar! Plus the mango was super sweet! <3

After eating, we went around the place and saw the plates they made for famous establishments like yabu, thespa, sariwon and even shangrila boracay!! Then we ended up feeding the fishes HAHHAHA

We had lunch today with the family. The waiter was really nice. The food is good. I think due to the rains, the garden is a bit unkempt; unkempt but still nice. I'm sure it would be lovely during more sunny days.

The dining area has four walls with big screen windows, so air was circulating well. The good is great, Filipino fusion I think without trying too hard. They served us fresh veggies and seafood. Their pumpkin soup has fresh coconut and was delightful. It was my favorite of what was served. Healthy.

You could buy pottery and other ceramic stuff, which really are beautiful. If you are on a budget, like we are, they have overruns and imperfect pottery sold by weight at 200 per kilogram, which are beautiful as well.

Reservations is a must. Highly recommend. Be back again; after all, it's just five minutes away from where we live.

If you're looking for unique pieces to design your home and kitchen you should consider going here. The place is hard to find but given the right directions and motivation to come no one can ever miss this place. You can purchase pre made items like tissue holders/plates/bowls or you can ask them to make a one-off design just for you (with a minimum, of course)
But the reason I like this place is that you get to escape the loudness of the city plus partake on their homemade suman with ripe mango paired with hot choco or coffee.
On weekends they have a small buffet for visitors(call ahead for reservation but walk ins are welcome)
