The Six Fix: Cute and Quirky Restos That Will Brighten Up Your Day

The Six Fix: Cute and Quirky Restos That Will Brighten Up Your Day

You’ve probably tried eating inside Gerry’s Jeepney, or in one of Pedro and Coi’s pop culture-themed booths. Or have enjoyed game night at Ludo: Boardgame Bar and Café or Puzzle Café, or perhaps had a grand artsy time at Sip & Gogh Paint and Sip Studio. If you’re looking for the next unique food haunt to conquer, here’s a list of cute and quirky establishments that complete a delish dining experience with conceptual and kawaii interiors and menus:

1. Hue Café. Waiters on hoverboards complete the vibrant vibe of this Pantone-themed café, where you can enjoy cakes, mug desserts, and an array of fresh juicy, milky, and icy concoctions. Oh, did we mention that they also teach customers who want to learn how to ride a hoverboard? Hue Café is located at 2/F House Fashion Cafe, 109 V. Luna Ext., Sikatuna Village, Quezon City


2. Para: Filipino Sandwich Bar. With the boom of the street park and food truck industry, we've already seen quite a number of vehicle-inspired establishments, but this one located at the Kapitolyo GastroPark is a must-try because they're the first jeepney sandwich bar that puts at the forefront Filipino favorites like adobo, bistek, and aligue. Para: Filipino Sandwich Bar is located at GastroPark, 12 1st Street, Kapitolyo, Pasig


3. Coco Hut. Yes, true to its name, this food chain's interiors look like those of a nipa hut's, befitting of the homey Filipino fare they serve. Their spaghetti is very Pinoy (sweet and meaty), and they've also got an innovative selection of chicken and fish dishes that put a twist on favorites like tilapia and cream dory. Coco Hut has branches at Commerce Center, Alabang, UP AyalaLand Techno Hub, Quezon City, and Jupiter Street, Makati


4. Laro Board Game Cafe. While there are a lot of board game cafés out there, Laro is one-of-a-kind because of its always updated board game selection and witty menu—each item is named after a Filipino game or pop culture reference. Bahay-Bahayan for the clubhouse sandwich (see inset below), Unggoy-Ungguyan for the banana split, and Sawsaw Suka for chicharon and veggie crackers, among others. Laro Board Game Cafe is located at 59A Regalado Avenue, West Fairview, Quezon City


5. Uke Box Caffé. Selfie addicts will love this place which prints selfies (and photos in general) on their coffee, using the same technique for printing on cakes. But more than that, they're a haven for musicians because of their ukelele selection and music workshops. Uke Box Caffé is located at  187 Village Center, E. Rodriguez Jr. Avenue, Libis, Quezon City


6. Sunnies Café. This soon to open dining spinoff of the popular eyewear brand possesses the same coolness and charm, just a tad more homier—both for humans and pooches. They'll be serving yummy comfort food from all over the world, helmed by one of Sunnies' owners, Eric Dee, who comes from the family behind Todd English and Tim Ho Wan. Sunnies Café will soon open at Bonifacio High Street, Bonifacio Global City
