“Calea Cakes”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Tried Calea at Balay Quince on our fist day in Bacolod City. We were overwhelmed with the cake choices but then settled for the best sellers. Sad to say, there is nothing exceptional with the cakes nor the service...most of the frosting/icing are dried up and only the newly cut sides of the portions are fresh...seemed like they have been left longer in the shelves...
a long line of servers greet incoming guests and that is all they do...they just stay there talking with each other...you need to call hard for their attention in ordering, asking for water refills and even getting the bill...
tried to give it another chance, at the outlet in Lourdes Centre...but the broken window cake and black sambo were worst...Too much hyped up reviews. :(

“Average at best with terrible service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Stayed at L'Fisher which is right across the street from the place and everyone always wanted to meet at this place. At first it's pretty exciting to see so much to choose from, but when you start eating, you soon find out that it's all for show. The flavor is average at best, I even tried going back but it kept getting worse. The service was awful as it's pretty clear that the owners don't care at all about any of that. If you want average cakes then this is the place to go.

A sanctuary of different cakes :)
A nice reward after a city day's tour.
Serves a variety of cakes at a very affordable price.

“Calea Cakes and more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

High quality of chocolate cakes - but not affordable to everyone! Nice and clean shops, fully air-conditioned.

“Calea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

This is the home for a sweet tooth like me. They have the best cheesecakes. Their cakes are sinfully delicious. I want to buy a franchise for this if I may!.
