Located inside Teacher’s Village in Quezon City, Maginhawa is known to be one of the most famous havens for food enthusiasts. And as we wander every nooks of the street, we came across this library cafe called Antiteasis.

Antiteasis is a snuggly little cafe that offers bagels, smoothies, a small library and tons of board games. The place was divided into two set up. One offers an al fresco vibe and can occupy 10 people. While 8 people can be accommodated through the indoor seating. The place inside was filled with colorful throw pillows and refurbished wooden chests turned low tables.

Aside from the color-coordinated books (perfect for my OCD), the shelves (above) offer different genres of literature pieces starting from classic to contemporary. Plus they also have fiction and coffee table books.

While waiting for our food, we decided to play some of their board games. The cafe have the classic Snake & Ladders, Monopoly and Scrabble. But the one that really stood out to us was the Cards Against Humanity.

Even though the space was a bit small, I find it very relaxing and artsy at the same time. The place has Wifi and they provide electrical outlets for their guests. The music was perfect. The place was “Instagram worthy” and the lady on the front desk was very approachable.

As first-time customers, we decided to try their smoothies. We had one Apple – Basil Smoothie and a Banana- Cinnamon. For 110php, the drinks were delicious and really refreshing. I love how they were able to showcase them on small customized jars. You can really tell that the fruits were fresh because of the pulp mixed inside every drink.

Prior to placing our orders, we had a glimpse of how big the bagel was. It gave us the idea to split the ham and cheese bagel into two.

If viewed from the outside, Antiteasis may look like your usual coffee place. However, based from my experience, this new hang-out has a lot to offer inside. My only concern is that I won’t be able to bring a large group of friends to this cafe. Loud conversations may not be perfect to their intimate vibe and there might be a scarcity for leg room.
