“Best Place for Pastries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

If you're craving for pastries or Filipino merienda foods like batchoy and luglug, Cecil's is the best place to go. They have the main branch at Anda St. but they now have branches at malls like Gaisano Mall and NCCC Mall.

I highly recommend luglug, molo, durian roll and eclair.

“Durian Pie, Palabox, Batchoy heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Whenever dining at that little corner along Anda St. in Davao City, I couldn't help but recall my childhood days when a "take-home" Cecil's Durian Pie brought by my mom or aunt would always send my young heart to cloud nine. At the place, I would always order palabok or batchoy, Cecil's traditional treats that are my favorites. Although I haven't eaten there for a long time, the memories at the mere mention of "Cecil's" conjure a sense of happiness, excitement and "yummy-ness." Thanks, Cecil's for making my childhood days a lot happier and yummy-er.

I like the fried lumpia, the pansit palabok, the batchoy, and the chicken sandwich. I also like their durian pie, and their cream puffs.

“classic and traditional homemade cakes and pastries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

i love how they baked their cakes and pastries. It really tastes good and it's like going back to my childhood years when my mom used to bake cakes for my birthday. It is traditionally made in an old fashioned way.
