Sweet tooth in Bacolod

Artisan Life Travel w/ Me

My “unplanned” Bacolod trip was for Reset 6100 event. Spent just two days but unfortunately, that wasn’t enough at all. I wasn’t able to go to the famous The Ruins and some of their beaches there. But that’s another reason to go back, right?

Anyway, though I may have missed the tourist spots, I made sure I’ll get to try their local cafés. And Bacolod has so many cafés, as in cute and dainty ones that you wouldn’t mind spending an entire afternoon there.

Now, first stop… Calea. Oh! Your eyes will definitely grow big as you enter this chic blue doors, you’ll see two big cake chillers filled with pastries. Seriously, I had a hard time choosing what to get. It was such a tough choice. I’m a cheesecake girl so I had the Pecan Caramel Cheesecake.

Next was Felicia’s. I love the branding of this quaint café. They have pastries packed in a can aside from the cakes displayed.

Next, Ann Co Cakes was referred by Wacky’s friend, Tita Joy. What I love about this shop was, the husband of Ann Co was an artist and they owned a gallery in Bacolod, and you’ll how they added an artsy fartsy touch through their chairs.That’s frozen brazo and banoffee.

So far, those were the only cafés I was able to go to. Just walk along that Lacson Street and I tell you, you’ll have a hard time choosing which one to try first. From inasal to cafes and pasabulong shops.

Of course, since you’re already there, you shouldn’t miss the pasalabong stores. They have Bong-bong’s and Merci. My favourites were the napoleones and piyayaForgive me but I’m not a food blogger. I just want to share where I’ve been specially the cafés because that’s normally where I would like to spend my time. So, I usually forget what I ordered or to check more of their specialties. But one thing I learned during my trips, just be spontaneous. Go with what you’re craving for.

Just two days in Bacolod and I think I already gained 5 kilos. But this was just the beginning. During this entire saga {if I may call it}, I’ve been to six cities in a week and ate a lot of pastries. For now, that’s about it for Bacolod. Next city would Dumaguete.
