Take a bite and you’ll feel the butter melting in your mouth. A taste of heaven on earth! Your trip in Dumaguete City wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Sans Rival Cakes and Pastry shop.
Sansrival, a pastry made of butter and nuts, is also the name of the popular store. Fellow Pinoy Travel Bloggers recommended the pastry shop. So one cold morning in the City of Gentle People, my brothers and I walked to San Jose St. cor Rizal Boulevard, where the shop was.
The shop’s interior has a dainty design of blue and white. I was surprised that they weren’t only selling pastries but also meals for lunch and snacks.
We ordered spaghetti, sylvannas, and of course, sansrival matched with their hot chocolate.
Spaghetti- Filipino-style: sweet and with the hotdogs partnered with bread on the side / Price: Php 37.00
Sylvannas- I like them better than the sansrival. I even bought a box for pasalubong. It’s also one of their best sellers. / Price: Php 12.00/ piece
Sansrival- It’s their best seller. Price: Php 26.00/ slice (see the main photo above)
Hot chocolate- It’s so rich and yummy. It’s a must-order for breakfast. Php 28.00
Many tourists frequent this place so be there early if you’ll be buying some pastries to take home to your loved ones. Or you can place your order by calling their shop.
