Caffé Sant’Antonio (Silang, Cavite)

Caffé Sant’Antonio is named after Saint Anthony of Padua, is run by the congregation of the Rogationist of the Heart of Jesus and is the coffee and tea haven in that south side of Luzon. Caffé Sant’Antonio has successfully managed to marry food and religion in one interesting place since its inception on December 1, 2012.

The first room that immediately faces the entrance of this charming space is the cafe that offers coffee, tea, cakes and other desserts. As patrons sip their heavenly drinks or munch delectable pastries, they can look at religious images in the vicinity. These religious items range from a life-size cardboard cutout of Pope Francis and three-dimensional figures of Mary and Joseph to the cutest replicas of Saint Nicolas Tolentino and Pope John Paul II.

I said larger-than-life because they are way bigger than me. Okay, I am diminutive, but not THAT small.

The cafe is adjacent to the pizzeria, and they are separated only by sliding doors. The pizzeria is well-lit, with glass ceiling and arched windows. It has red brick walls and wooden tables and chairs, but the centerpiece of the pizzeria is the wood fired brick oven found behind the counter.

The pizzeria opens to an outdoor space where a replica of Bocca Della Verità is located. I did not dare place my hand inside its mouth. I read the story, and I wanted to have all my extremities intact when I return to Quezon City.

The food was colorful. The pizza was crisp yet easy to fold/roll. In terms of flavor, the ingredients blended well with nothing in particular that stood out. The two pasta dishes we ordered were nothing to write home about, but I would choose spaghetti con olio, aglio e pepperoncino over Spaghetti con melanzane.

The cakes were not extraordinary. I am a huge fan of chocolate cakes, and I always order a slice of chocolate cake and another cake when I eat out. Their chocolate cake with caramel filling and choco banana cake did not leave a lasting effect on me. When it comes to their drinks, I had and liked Kiwi Banana Frappè al Latte even though I do not prefer fruits in my drinks. It was refreshing yet not too sweet.

    1. Hi, Jocely. I do not know where to buy the images online, but I linked the page of Caffé Sant’Antonio on the entry above. Maybe you can ask the management that. Thank you.

  1. Rose, the Pizzeria is open only during weekends (Fridays-Sundays). The café is open even on weekdays though, they just don’t serve pizza and pasta on weekdays. 🙂
