Where to Go for a New and Different Dining Experience in Batangas?

With all the restaurants found in every nook and corner, restaurants have to offer more than just good food. Good food is tops but it is a plus to eat great food in a place where there is welcoming and interesting ambiance.
In Lipa City, Batangas, four café restaurants show us what concept restaurants should be. All of them are worth visiting more than once.
Purple Beetle Cafe
Store Hours: 9:00 AM to 10:00 PM
Price Range: PhP80 to PhP185
This artsy coffee place in Lipa City is bohemian and also vintage. What could be more vintage than a real Beetle car turned counter? The walls of the café have their own stories to tell—a mural painting, a wall dotted with the owner’s paintings, and a statement wall.
People might think that dining at Purple Beetle Café is expensive because of its artsy interior and intricate food and beverage presentation. But with most items priced at just PhP80 to PhP185, their offerings are considerably affordable. Mentioned must-order items are lasagna rolls, cream cheese and banana French Toast bread, beef cheese wedges, cheeseburger with bacon and egg, buffalo chicken wings, and their Oh-frappe varieties especially green tea, hazelnut, and nutella.
While food is still the main repertoire in Purple Beetle, the owners make sure that the café lives to its form of being fun-filled and art-filled. It’s the customers’ call. You can read books, play board games, doodle and paint using their art materials, or simply admire the Beetle toy cars on display. You can also buy some boho stuff like headpieces and dream catcher.
Purple Beetle is a lifestyle brand first: a bohemian and vintage online shop (http://purplebeetle.com.ph/) before it became a café. The name is inspired by a purple beetle toy requested by the owner’s daughter for her birthday. From there, the lifestyle brand was born and then the café followed suit.
