Alexei’s Diner & Cafe– definitely one of the best American diner-style places in Marikina I can recommend! Craving for a heavy and tasty meal or just want to hang out with friends over coffee and dessert? This is one of those restaurants you’d want to put in your priority list.
It’s located at #7 Gil Fernando Ave. in Marikina City, between Marquinton and Marikina Engr. Building. You know that street that has a Tapsi Ni Vivian near Sta. Lucia Mall and Robinson’s Metro East? Just keep moving forward from there and when you cross the Sumulong Hi-way intersection, you’ll eventually find it on the ride side coupled along with Extreme Auto Center.
The tall walls and the auto center logo might put you off, but the place is pretty nice once you go in- not to mention the ample parking slots available. Somewhat American-styled, those who want to dine with the perfect weather outside (or smoke) can sit down on the spacious comfy area provided outside the cafe’s entrance. And to top it off, they also have good Wi-fi connection!
Upon entering the cafe, the waiters and waitresses greeted us accordingly, offered us a seat and gave us the menu that comprised of mouth-watering American and Italian cuisines. The atmosphere was quite relaxing.
Their 30+ meals are categorized as: Burgers & Sammies, Munchies & Crunchies, Oodles’ of Noodles, Rice Dishes, Yogurt Shakes, Milkshakes & Fruitshakes and Hot Drinks. The prices would range from a P30 banana cake loaf to an ultra-juicy P315 grilled salmon teriyaki. Almost all the dishes between them are must-tries!
Our orders that night:
There are a variety of desserts to choose from, and they’re all sweet and yummy!
From the first time I visited Alexei’s, I’ve been back quite a couple of times already. Of course I brought with me family and friends, and they all had positive feedback! So to those living nearby- Marikina, Antipolo, Cainta and Quezon City- do visit Alexei’s Diner & Cafe now for a nice foodie time!
