Great pastries.

During our visit, public works have been repairing something on the road next to the restaurant, (been going on for a while according to locals) and a horrible, foul smelling stench was emanating from the area. Not an enjoyable experience.

If you want outrageously delicious dessert, this is the place to go. So much to choose from; sans rival is spectacular but the silvanas are to die for. It's easy to eat 4-6 pieces in one sitting.

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.

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.
