My partner and I have visited a couple of times, and the cupcakes have always been so-so, really nothing special. Today, we ordered a Cookie Monster and Berries and Cream. The Cookie Monster was bland, and the icing was nothing but powdered sugar and a blob of butter. The Berries and Cream was absolutely disgusting. The cake was obviously stale... More

We went to the BGC and stumble upon this place . Their display is beautiful and ambience is inviting . We ordered different variety and we loved red velvet . The frosting for the lemon drop is bit sweet and sugary . Don't forget free wifi

Whenever im in serendra, i never fail to drop by and grab a cupcake or 2 from sonja's. My favorite red velvet is always a perfect solution to my sweet craving. Try their other cupcakes too, they have a whole shelf to choose from. The store is small though thats what i dont like so if you plan to hangout... More

I've been hearing about Cupcakes by Sonja for years but never have I had the chance to try it since I've always contained my foodtrips around QC But now, that I've tried some, I'm all praises for the texture and the taste of their amazing cupcakes! There's not much to say! The flavours are fabulous! Though the price is not... More

Every time I'm in Manila I always make sure to drop by Sonja's for the red velvet cupcake. This cup cake is one of the best I found so far. It's a bit pricey though but worth it. It is best not to refrigerate but if you plan to bring it somewhere, the shop can provide you a proper box... More

Filipinos tend to go and eat where they would like to be seen. This is one of those places. Just because it is the "in" place to get your cupcakes, they all think it is good. Very dry, and the icing simply tasted like pure powdered sugar with a pinch of butter, I guess to bind it. Really bd cupcake.... More

Cupcakes are freshly baked, nicely decorated and Reasonably priced. Im a sucker for red velvet and i cant have enough of it. Its usually the first that runs out of stock so if youre lucky to see some when youre there get one as they wont stay long on the shelf.

I love cupcakes cause of their size. It's small enough not to make u full.. giving u ample space for you to taste more the other varieties. The red velvet is a winner and the chocolate burst is a great alternative for a coffee. =)
