The Sans Rival Is very good food and pastries . Silvanas , Black Mambo , Cinnamon Rolls, Mamon , Ensaimada , spaghetti rustica , and their Biko were all soooooo delicious and worth the food trip :)

When you're in Dumaguete, your first food stop should be Sans Rival. The place is teeming with people of all ages! My LO loves it there for their cakes, I love it there for their very budget friendly snacks like the Arroz Caldo/Spag/Burger, and my husband really likes the teas that they serve that comes with so many flavors to...

When you're in Dumaguete and you need pasalubong or just want something sweet and yummy, Sans Rival Cakes and Pastries is the place to go to. A box of silvanas (10pcs) costs 140php.

Silvanas are a must try. Never ever leave Dumaguete City without tasting this delicious product. It's soooo good they could have called their cafe "Silvanas" instead. Their Sans Rival is good too, but I just like Silvanas better. :)

I went to SansRival along Rizal Blvd, the place is cozy... i think the staffs should be more accommodating though (smile more often). I love their Sanrival, Silvanas, Dates & Walnut Dacquiose. It is a must try when you're in Dumaguete...

The only place to buy the apple pie with crumb topping or black forest cake. So moist and wonderful, these are my favorites and others are tasty too. If you need a birthday cake order here and many choices. All staff is friendly and a nice comfy decor to have a slice with a friend. Enjoy

Food is great, no doubt! Affordable and delicious. (In the original/main store). But sad to say, staff there are not friendly. Not even the watch guard or security guard qill greet you in or out.
