Sans Rival Dumaguete is possibly the most famous dessert shop in the Philippines.
With the title of the shop translating to ‘Without Rival’, it’s fair to say we can firmly back up the name choice of this unique cake and pastry store.
Widely known for its Sans Rival cakes and Silvannas, a frozen cookie version of the Sans Rival, the original store opened in the 1970’s. Although since then, thanks to popular demand from Filipino’s visiting and taking treats home to relatives, the business has branched out into a bistro next door. It also now serves rice meals and other confectioneries, although the original Sans Rivals still stands.
We popped in to grab a box of of 10 Silvannas that cost 165 Pesos, and it was the best decision of the trip. The cafe is cute and covered in blue, and the desserts are to die for!
