Nice dessert place

Sad thing is they didn't have Sans Rival when we visited. Their silvanas are okay. So are the cinnamon spaghetti and iced cappuccino. Haven't tried their other signature cakes but they look yummy. Gotta go here early. The line is very long.

Cheap place. Pastries taste awful, coffee is probably the worse I ever tried. No service at all. Their famous silvanas are just a meringue, stuffed with margarine...

IMHO, almost any other blvd restaurant is... More

Nice ambiance and tasty desserts! Cakes are not pricey at all. Really worth a visit if you're in Dumaguete. Heard they're also the go-to place for the best Sans Rival in town! :)

If you are in Dumaguete City, try to buy silvanas from Sans Rival Cakes and Pastries. It's not too sweet. It's just perfect.

Both are walking distance to Dumaguete port, hotels, restaurants along Rizal Boulevard and Silliman University. About 15 to 20 minutes from the airport. One can partake of the good food served at the Bistro while enjoying the... More

The first time I tasted their silvanas, I got the reason why I need to come back to Dumaguete as many times as I can.

Our group came for their Sans Rival and Sylvanas and after dinner coffee which the place is known for. The Sylvanas are quite good. There was supposed to be the chocolate version but it is out of stock. They also have different choices of cakes. We came back again for breakfast which is served outside the restaurant. They offer several... More
