Pleasant.

I always look for a pleasant coffee shop whenever I am with my toddler. So when I went to Mega Fashion Hall, I decided to stay at Cupcakes by Sonja while waiting for my husband to pick us up. The location is very pleasant and it's not crowded (just in front of Zara). Staff are always smiling... read more

For me this place is ok. Its regular cupcake with colorful icing on it. Anyone can make it in my opinion but for my children cupcakes are very attractive. We visited this place many times. We tried thier creative creation like Smores. Always its nice to try new ideas but I didnt like it. For me a cupcake should look... More

A friend recommended this cupcake store, so I tried 3 flavors: lemon, peppermint, and their popular red velvet. These costed me 250 pesos, and I felt like I threw my money away. The cake part of their red velvet cupcake tasted like "puto" and that wasn't what I expected of a red velvet cupcake. The cream cheese frosting was greasy.... More

The Peppermint cupcake was delicious! not too sweet, combined with dark choco cupcake -- recommended. Carrot cake was not bad too! a bit too sweat on the frosting, but forgivable :) Had hot americano to balance the sweet from the cupcakes, but it was a failure.. Just go there for the cupcake to go, perhaps?

I must commend the marketing team for excellent work. The write-ups, press, and endorsements are really effective in pushing the brand. However, it is important to note the credibility and credentials of those who swear by these cupcakes? Have these "experts" had the opportunity of biting into a luscious cupcake from MAGNOLIA Bakery in NYC or Sprinkles in Beverly Hills?... More

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
