Yes they are known and named for their Sans Rival which is actually good too, but what stole my heart (and my tummy) was their Butter Silvanas. It's perfect corky texture on the outside and an outburst of creaminess on the outside is just magical to the palette especially for those with a case of sweet tooth just like me.... More

Located at the boulevard, it's a nice place to eat if you want to order their famous sweets. Most of their sweets are frozen though so you need to be careful of your time travel if you wish to bring some home.

I was intrigued to see a couple of tourists in the hotel I stayed in carrying a lot of blue boxes. I later discovered that the blue boxes are the signature boxes of Sans Rival Bakery. I ventured to look for this bakery the very next morning and was thrilled to learn that it was just walking distance from the... More

Sans rival goes well with coffee and is mostly a sought after snack and dessert in dumaguete where sans rival is famous. They have a cafe like near the port and one at robinsons mall. For those who likes pasalubong from dumaguete this is the most recommended one just ensure to put it in fridge upon arrival

I'm not usually a fan of silvanas (I find them too sweet), but this store's silvanas are definitely worth trying. I bought a box of chocolate and a box of butter silvanas to take home to my family in Manila. Both batches were light, creamy and just the right level of sweetness. I wish I bought more. I would recommed... More

I'm not a fan of sweets and pastries. But when I go to Dumaguete, I make sure that I drop by Sans Rival Bistro and order their best selling silvanas. The place is very accessible. And if you opt to order a lot of silvanas for pasalubong, better to order it a day ahead and just inform the crew that... More

This small city has a lot of pleasant surprises. You can't visit without trying the sylvannas and sans rival here. They are among the best in this country. There's a shop near the bay and the ambiance is really great.

Dumaguete trip won't be complete without a visit at Sans Rival Cakes and Pastries. Of course, the cakes and the pastries are the tops in this place but they're more than that as they offer pasta, Filipino rice cakes and others. Sans rival and silvanas are my favorites.

Best sans rival and sylvanas in the island! Nice place to chitchat with friends over coffee and sweets. Having an outlet store in Cebu, this place must not be missed! Service could be slow when there are a lot of customers, yet the desserts are all worth the wait.

Thank Busdik
