Caffe Piansa, San Roque Marikina. A jail Inspired diner

Probably some of you are wondering why I posted another food entry in the midst of summer hype, I know I should somehow be posting a new travel destination beyond the usual or at least show off my fiery hot sexy body (nah! omit that fiery hot sexy body). Last year I featured Lilac Street, Marikina, a long stretched food haven longing to be discovered. This time let me give you a fair share of new food sanctum in the ever pleasing city of Marikina. A jail themed so called "beyond the usual" restaurant in Baranggay San Roque, a distictively themed diner that will capture the interest of food lovers.
I dragged my friend out for lunch, she was a bit skeptical with my invite but when I said I'll treat her, without any trace of hesitation she immediately agreed (who would refuse though?) We arrived just in time, just in time for store closing hours! We were not aware of their operating hours so we soon had to wait for another 3 hours or so, in such case better be familiarized and do some fact finding step through the web before bustling somewhere or you'll surely end up having the same plight.
We went back after 3 hours, 10 minutes before the store opens to be precised. We stuck outside til the staff opened the store. Luckily we were the only ones waiting so it was a perfect time to take photos without being mindful of how you look like while striking your best pose, you know when you're taking photos and some nosy strangers are looking at you, laughing?

Below are the photos of Caffe Piansa:

The interior redefines the ambiance of how it feels like to be incarcerated in a cozy approach. While waiting for the food to be served one of the staff (Wearing a prison uniform) approached and prompted to try taking photos on their mugshot corner, of course I did.

The food were also exquisite and appetizing.

I was also amazed on how they cleverly conceptualized their menu, a prison inspired menu was really catchy and creative, not sure if there's any identical resto as Caffe Piansa  but I enjoyed my quick dine even so.
