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,

Thinking of sharing Dumaguete to your friends and family from afar, this is where you should go. Here you can buy the famous Sylvannas, cakes and pastries. The restaurant location is easily accessible and is facing the famous Dumaguete Rizal Boulevard. The prices in the restaurant and inside the "pasalubong" store is easy on the budget.

Their silvanas are great for take outs and are favorite pasalubong too for visitors to Dumaguete. Do not miss their paella negra. They also have a number of decent Spanish dish like lengua, callos, bacalao and others. Better reserve a table at inside dining area with air-con especially nowadays during the hot summer months.
