Hi everyone! I’m back after what felt months of no blogging. I got super busy with review, chores and discipleship that I barely got the chance to open my laptop and do some last minute polishing on my drafts so I could actually publish them. I just didn’t feel in-the-zone lately and I also didn’t want to blog half-heartedly (I know, I’m so over the board!).
Anyways, basing on the title, you might have an idea with what this post is going to be about! Well, to state the obvious, yes, this is going to be a food post! *yey* I’ve made a point to go out on Saturdays and treat myself with some sweets after a long week of reviewing and other what nots. I’m just lucky that there are so many pastry shops sprouting everywhere in Cebu!
My first stop was Country Basket. It is by far one of the prettiest pastry shop I’ve been to in Cebu. Unlike most of the cafes that I’ve been to that have been heavily influenced with the typical Korean style (post-its, anyone?), Country Basket chose to be on the neat, doll house-looking side. What’s even better is that it doesn’t go over board with girly designs so there were actually guy adults eating cupcakes and catching up with each other while I was there.
I tried their blueberry cupcake which I didn’t really enjoy because it reminded me of the medicine that I used to drink back when I was a kid (sickly kid right here!). But I think that was a personal opinion only since my friend actually loved it on the other hand. I also ordered their red velvet cake because it was the only one that came in a huge serving so I thought that it was the only one worth the price. It was quite tasty too! Their prices are quite unreasonable though.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed my stay there. I studied there and it was only until evening when it was not really conducive for studying because people started flooding in.
My next stop was Sunday 2 PM. This is practically one of the first Korean coffee shops that opened in Cebu. I’ve been meaning to visit the place for so long and it was only until recently that I got the means to do so. #sadlife
This cafe is owned by a Korean so I wouldn’t blame them if the whole place was literally filled with post-its. Besides, I think they were the ones that made it trend.
I ordered their blueberry shake (wow, I just noticed how much of a fan I am of blueberry!) and it was yum! Anyways, it was a really small place and to be honest, it didn’t quite meet my expectations. I thought it was quite overrated but then again, maybe that’s because it was one of the first ones of its kind to open and Cebuanos were too excited to become foodies at that time. Hahaha But I did enjoy my time there anyways so it’s all good.
Finally we are on to my last stop, Sweet Surprises! This one is a charm! If you have noticed, the place was so pink it hurt my eyes! Hahaha They just recently opened so it was not crowded with so many people so I really got to study well!
I ordered their chicken pesto and it was quite delicious though I might have to say it was over priced? I don’t know but I just think spending P90 on a small serving was not quite a good deal for me. Anyways, I also didn’t like the iced coffee at all. I heard their cupcakes were really good but I didn’t buy any because I wasn’t feeling really calorific at that time. hahaha
It’s a really cute place though and I could only wish I could study more freely there next time aka no cafe owners lurking around please because it made me feel conscious. Haha
Anyways, that’s about it! Hope you had fun reading this one and I’m seriously looking forward to my next pastry stops! Let me know your thoughts by the way or whatever, just talk! I missed you all so much! Until next time. Ciao!
