If you're looking for a local dessert and coffee place, this is a good option. We went there one Sunday afternoon and the place was packed. We were glad to get a table. It is located inside Ayala Mall. It has a nice ambience, nice place to have coffee and chat.

We ordered two types of cake, the popular Achocalypse Now and a Red Velvet cake. The Achocalypse is quite good, very moist and generous amounts of good tasting chocolate. The Red Velvet tasted good too but a little too dry.

Service was quite fast, despite the many customers in the restaurant.

When I travel, I usually like to go find a local establishment for either food or shopping. This is definitely one of the good ones, with lots of variety too.

Definitely value for money for visitors! I'm sure this is still a bit high end for local standards. As most establishments in the mall now came from Manila, they also charge Manila prices. But the local establishments like this don't, yet provide good quality products too.

this establishment has been around fo a while. i like the old branch beside sbarro and in front of timezone before they transferred to the present location.. the food is ok but it has no character. the cream of mushroom can be creamier, the mediterranean clam soup needs to neutralize the clam meat more. the carbonara was oozing with bacon bits. the bibimbap taste lacked its genuine roots. seafood burrito was big in size but not taste, it was one notch above bland. the buffalo wings was a surprise. it tasted like a typical deep fried chicken with a typical gravy. but i wanted the stereotype buffalo wing, not a fried chicken. the sizzling pochero meat was tender enough, hut serving size of the meat was small. to make it look big in serving, the rice accompanying the meat was served rectangular shaped. the halo halo was not remarkable as you cannot totally distinguish the claimed 12 ingredients.

The interiors and store design is worth a visit. The food and dessert is alright, except i was expecting better. Took a really long while for our food to arrive and i was afraid to miss our flight back to manila. but the burrito got served, and yes, LUNCH WAS ON THE HOUSE! yes!

I usually drop by here at the end of my Ayala stroll or if I had to wait for someone for 30 mins or an hour more.
I've been loving their brownie ala mode. It's not too sweet. Just a perfect dessert to end the day.
They have a lot of desserts that are a must-try.
