I always tell people where I live is only a booty shake away from Rizal, specifically, Taytay. Yet, for some reason, I don’t frequent it and limit my wanderings in nearby cities like Makati and Taguig. But late last year, I started extending my Google searches to Rizal in my bid to find aesthetic cafes.
It was All Saints Day; typically, I’d go to the cemetery to visit the dearly departed, but since social gatherings were still highly discouraged due to the pandemic, the most I could do was pray for their souls. But I didn’t want to waste the day, so I went out and visited Feynman Coffee.

🚌 Feynman Coffee location
The cafe is located on Cabrera Road in Dolores, Taytay. I booked Joyride, a motorbike taxi; the travel time only took 23 minutes.
🖼️ Feynman Coffee ambiance and interiors
I was immediately impressed by the cafe’s interior design when I stepped in. The use of woodwork is prominent in its architecture, from the floors, the beams on the ceilings, the stairs, the wall paneling in the restroom, the coffee bar, and other furniture.
They have a space on the second floor where guests can dine. It’s low-ceilinged, furnished with two long tables flanked by dining benches and single armchairs with a distinctive woodwork structure. The overall vibe is warm and inviting; this cafe is well-designed, and I’m very impressed.
There are a couple of stool chairs outside the cafe facing the road. I stayed there for three hours, thinking about some stuff and appreciating the moment of being away from home. I was so done being caged in my own home that I took any chance to get away, even for just a few hours.
💻 Feynman Coffee WiFi
Another thing I found impressive is the fast Internet connection. The barista gave me a voucher that allowed me to use their WiFi for 1.5 hours, and it worked great. But even without connecting to their WiFi, I had no trouble using my Globe mobile data.
🔌 Feynman Coffee electrical outlets
There are several power outlets around the cafe.
🥯 Feynman Coffee food
I wanted to munch on something, but I was not in the mood to eat a big meal. There are cookie jars on top of the barista bar. I ordered an oatmeal cookie. It’s a crunchy cookie and very crumbly.
☕ Feynman Coffee drinks
Price: USD 1.58 (PHP 100)
I saw a few items on their menu that sounded interesting, like the hot matcha, crimson joy (not sure what that is), and cranberry latte. Unfortunately, they don’t have a plant-based milk alternative (I was then a faithful vegan during that time), so I just ordered a cup of americano. Even when it’s dark and intense, it didn’t have a bitter aftertaste.
In conclusion, I liked this coffee shop, from the well-designed interiors, the friendly barista, and the fast WiFi. The coffee is not half as bad as well, but I’d love it even more if they’d consider adding plant-based options so I can try more of their drinks and food offerings.
