This Instagram-Worthy Cafe in Pampanga Looks Straight Out of a K-Drama
They also serve Korean-inspired food!
Our favorite rom-com K-Dramas are never complete without a cute cafe for the protagonists to hang out in! Memorable scenes often occur in such a place, from hilarious conversations to heart-fluttering exchanges.
While we're more than content watching our beloved shows on the TV screen, sometimes we'll come across a K-drama that's so good we'd want to be part of it ourselves. There's no need to travel to South Korea to do that, though! Just in Angeles City, Pampanga sits Cafe Ana, where you can totally embrace your main character energy!
There may be no Ahn Hyo Seop or Son Ye Jin in sight here, but this Korean-inspired cafe can make you feel like you're a lead in one of your favorite K-Dramas, with the classic and elegant aesthetic it exudes. The place boasts of high ceilings and marble floors, partnered with glass windows to allow ample sunlight to seep through the cafe's white walls. It's simply cinematic! Colorful chairs decorate the space too, often touched up with hints of gold.
Ever wondered what those mouth-watering meals you've seen in K-Dramas taste like? With Cafe Ana's menu, you can finally find your answer! To match the cafe's theme, dishes served are Korean-inspired, promising a delicious culinary experience! A must-try from their menu are their many takes on the classic Tteokbokki, among which is Rabokki (Php 230) which combines tteokbokki with ramen. They've also got their scrumptious Tuna Mayo Rice (Php 250) to satisfy your cravings!
But if you're looking for something more familiar, you can go for Ana's Chicken Burger (Php 250). They've also got a delectable choice of pasta in their menu, from Cream Pasta (Php 230) to Aglio Olio (Php 230). Make sure to partner up these dishes with a refreshing drink, like their Caramel Macchiato (Php 160) or Tiramisu Latte (Php 200). Their Real Strawberry Milk (Php 180) is also a favored drink among visitors.
The cafe is named after its Korean owner, known here as Ms. Ana, who visualized the place to bring joy to customers. She shared in a post, "Hoping I can help more and more of our fellow Filipinos who are in need...It's time for me to share my blessings with other people." Staying true to her intention, the cafe has already held two annual Christmas outreach events over the past two years.
Cafe Ana is located at 363 Fil-Am Friendship Highway, Angeles City, Pampanga. They are open from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., Mondays to Saturdays, and 12:00 noon to 11:00 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, you can check out their Facebook or Instagram.
