This mermaid-themed cafe got all the reasons for us to take our chill pill!
It’s a childhood fantasy to be a mermaid for a day. We absolutely feel there is something awesome about having that tail. The sea is always cool and wonderful. We can swim every single day. Plus, the idea of having those cute underwater creatures as our companions thrills the kid in us!
We’re in Manila. How can we make that fantasy just a little closer to reality? Well, no need to pack your bags and meet the beach for now. We just discovered Marikina has this absolutely perfect mermaid-themed coffee shop! It makes this time the best time to take our chill pill!
Let these things convince you to check it out ASAP.

Look at this stuff isn't it neat? 🐚 @cafemermania 📍#5 General Ordonez St. Marikina City. 🏳 Beside BPI Family Savings bank, near OLOPSC and Meralco office . 🚘 Ride a jeepney or UV Express with signage SSS Village and go down Meralco office, we're just a few steps from there! . 🍰 Pasta dishes start at P145 🍴Rice meals start at P95
Take a look at that mermaid mural! Everyone will definitely fall in love with its artistic excellence. But hey, that’s not everything about this place. Even the ceiling follows the theme. Other under the sea-related decors are on the walls. Pastel colors are everywhere. Sitting at those bean bags is the most comfortable way of getting updated with our besties’ shenanigans. Plus, the lighting is perfect for photo-ops!
3. They sell the coolest mermaid merchandise.
It’s so hard to get over the cuteness of the place. That’s obvious so they got us covered. They have various underwater-themed stuff. Wallets, pouches, notebooks, shirts, bracelets and pin buttons are for sale. It will be really hard to choose. Don’t expect to see the exact items in malls. Their designs are unique. Go, be in for some retail therapy.
2. Their food won’t disappoint.
Their menu got our all-time favorites. They got pasta (P145-165), buffalo wings (P155-255), cheesy bacon BBQ fries (P125), cheesy beef nachos (P125), all day breakfast meals (P145-165), and some other rice meals (P155-195). Each one tastes flavorful and really satisfying. These have that taste that can compete with those of our current go-to places. Plus, their frappes (P125) and handcrafted rolled ice cream (P125) are worth being a sinful eater! LOL. Insider has it that they’re working on putting more options on their menu. Thanks in advance!
1. We can finally dress like mermaids!
Let’s all be princesses of the sea like Gretchen Ho! For a minimum purchase of P200, we can get to wear a mermaid tail. There’s no way we won’t take photos! Sitting on that shell throne makes it more double tap-worthy. That’s not all. They got other props to make it a much more legit photo-op. Here they are:
Cafe Mermania is located at 5 General Ordoñez Street, Marikina Heights, Marikina City.
