Sans Rival has been one of Dumaguete's main draws, and unsurprisingly so. When you step into the restaurant it's like you immediately gets transported back to the time when life was unhurried and when you can just while the time away and enjoy your coffee and cake while tuning the world out. It's simply charming. One of the best Dumaguete... More

Conquered the resto to reward ourselves after a long to'dos in Dumaguete. We ordered vegie salad, soup and the main dish. We thought we will pay a thousand pesos but the bill turns out just 700+ pesos. This include our take out of 1-loaf of butter cake. I just love their Chopped Greek Salad with basil balsamic vinaigrette. This resto... More

One of the most sought after delicacy and pastry in town. I love the sweetness that never bites your tonsils. And this is best served when cold. But it's also a good when served fresh from the oven. Surely it's best eaten with black coffee or tea.

Make sure to visit this place for pasalubong shopping. Their silvanas taste just right and do not contain a thick layer of butter unlike those sold in other bakeshops. Their pastas are a must try too.

One reason why I wanted to go to dumaguete is their silvanas and sansrival. Though i hadn't got the time to try their sansrival but I got the chance to bring home 6 boxes of silvanas. Their silvanas tastes soooo good. It only costs Php125 per box and it includes 10 pcs of silvanas inside. They ate kind enough to... More

Great news the coffee is very drinkable (the only thing I struggle with in this wonderful country is finding a good coffee). Love the coffee and the service is good, cakes are delightful. Btw I went to the outlet inside robinsons mall.

We had a very delightful dinner, especially the paella negra and the desserts (salted caramel cheesecake). There is a wide variety to choose from and not only for desserts. The place is well decorated and the mirrors are stunning. The staff is very efficient and courteous.

This is a bakery that sells some small meals as a side line, if you want a cake then this is a good place to go buy one but if you want to have a meal go to a restaurant there are many in Dumaguete, I recommend it as a take out bakery but not as a restaurant,
