Bacolod: Take Me Back to Calea!

After salivating over pictures and blog posts and pictures and blog posts of my friends who had a taste of these sumptuous cakes from Bacolod City, I finally had my own time to dig in to these sweet and delicious and enjoyed these fantastic Calea cakes! Wee!

From having a hearty lunch at Manokan Country and after buying some pasalubong at BongBong's, my superfriends and I spent some time visiting this sweetest place in Bacolod. I believe Calea has just been there for a few years, but travelers consider the place a must-visit now , and its cakes a must-have!

I never thought that they really have these wide selection, and to surprise us more, the prices were really that affordable! Compared to the other coffee shops I tried here in Manila, Calea offer not just enjoyable treats but also pocket-friendly delights too - something that Manila coffee shops must have. 

And so, with every piece looking sooooo yummy, my superfriends and I decided to give out our orders - a one helluva hard time that we all had fun with. ^_^

The interior of their shop near L'Fisher Hotel has this typical coffee shop appeal, but I tell you, be prepared to see a lot of its patron every hour filling each corner. One of the staff told us that the place gets crowded by 4 p.m. til night since this spot is close to La Salle Bacolod too.

My superfriends and I had a slice of their best-tasting cakes and coffee, and I tell you again, if it isn't for that hearty Manokan Country lunch, I think we would have two slices each. Hehe.



Carrot Cake

Apple Cake

Fruity Cheesecake

I ordered the Fruity Cheesecake since I find it really inviting among others. I liked it! I'm not a big fan of cheesecakes but I like this one, not too sweet and the the texture was really fine - melts in the mouth as they call it. My other super friend find her Carrot Cake a little sweet, and since I'm big on sweets, I ended up finishing her cake too. Hehe.

Their cakes are perfect partner for those coffee, so we really enjoyed our first visit here Calea - a sweet and memorable visit, indeed!

And now I can help but to get too excited and book another flight back to Bacolod to have a taste of their cakes again!

Happy eating!
