In the Alumni Centre (Bahay ng Alumni) of thr State University's Diliman camous is this wonderful little cake store that offers delectable, unique offerings. All the cakes are basically good, but my personal favorite is the dayap (Philippine Lime) cake that gives the dessert a distinctly tangy, Filipino taste. The ube cake is something to try as well.

good pasta, great iced tea. I tried both their UP resto and the one at Roces before it closed down. now they are just a stall at sgt esguerra. the gambas pasta is quite good. Prices are slightly cheaper than Mary Grace. I consider the food here much better than BanApple although its pricier.

Although The Chocolate Kiss is best known for their desserts, their meals also deserve the spotlight. You get far more than you pay for every time. It's been years since my last visit, and so when I saw Hainanese Chicken Rice on the menu, I immediately ordered it. Very few places get this dish right, and it is a true... More

I visited again my favorite college place inside the campus and found that nothing really changed in the span of 5 years. Although the place is usually packed, you do not get the feel that it is too crowded. The portion size is generous and the taste is just great. I always come back for the cakes that also very...

Meals and desserts are tasty and at affordable prices. Service is quick. Their dining areas are full at lunchtime, so try coming in early or late, or at off-hours.

Usually people go to the UP campus to eat street food but don't miss out on eating here. The atmosphere on the 2nd floor is great, especially when there's someone on the piano .The food is reasonable and tastes quite good. I'm a bit disappointed with their desserts but you can't have everything. I've been here a few times and... More

nice place to dine. there are two areas - the 2nd floor and the ground floor areas which are actually two separate restaurants. (they are on opposite sides of the building). the 2nd floor dining area is a little noisy come lunch hour but serves a lunch of the day (LOD) which are home-style Filipino dishes. the ground floor dining...

What really wowed me was their iced tea, since it isn't the regular pre mix nestea ice tea that is often served elsewhere. It is served with honey or syrup to sweeten it. The food is delicious comfort food, though prices can get a bit expensive for the main dishes. Favorites are the chicken kiev, chicken in a basket, spinach... More
