I was about to Buy 3 Boxes of Silvanas for a try back home in Cebu and when I first tasted this delicious delicacy it is indeed taste sweet and buttery too. I'll come back for more when I go back to Dumaguete City.

If you may just want to take a sip of coffee or you want other refreshments you may find it here. If you're famished, there are a lot of food in the menu but you should try their Sans Rival or Silvanas - it is what the restaurant is for.

After reading so many glowing reviews of San Rival Cakes and Pastries, I was disappointed when I finally got to taste its signature dessert and its popular silvanas. Why? - because the same would easily be available in any of the better known bakeshops and restaurants (yes, a lot of them serve excellent desserts too) in Metro Manila and even... More

When you talk of Dumaguete, Silvanas from Sans Rival will always be up there in the list. Few dared to imitate but never lived up to the expectations.

Nothing beats originality. Though the staff are not oh-so friendly, Sans Rival will always have the best Silvanas.

My first meal was pritchon, almost the same style as pecking duck in Chinese restaurants where the meat and skin were wrapped in a dumpling coat and... More

Lovely shop with so many treats to choose from….Definitely a sweet tooth haven. They serve good food at affordable prices. Silvanas is one of their bestsellers ( a must try). Note: If you plan on buying silvanas as pasalubong, you can bring an insulated bag to maintain its crispiness. :) we trraveled for 5 hours & it's still crispy when... More
