Busy place, popular to tourists and locals, probably because of good food and value. The pastry shop closes early but you can visit the bistro if you want to go late in the evening.

I initially bought a box to try it when I arrived in Dumaguete as I saw the reviews. It's soooo good . Decided to buy a couple more boxes to take home to Manila. At the airport , I saw people lugging dozens of the boxes and regretted buying only 2. Good thing they sell it at the airport .... More

Melts in your mouth 10 pcs. in a box Silvanas for Php 140 pesos. Too bad I had to go back to Cebu, otherwise I will bring boxes of Silvanas home.

The interior was so nice! It is clean and orderly. I love the colors white and blue, it compliments their cakes. And i really love their Sans Rival and silvanas! Although the other cakes was also okay, but for a sweeth tooth like me, I guess I won't crave for it. But overall the place was good and their Sans... More

Sans rival is always a favourite when it comes to a birthday cake. Lots of other yummy treats also like the famous "silvanas" but my personal favorite is the carrot cake, its amazing. A must see shop when visiting dumaguete.

Dine in? Take out? Sans rival is a place in Dumaguete that one must stop by when in the place. We had dessert after a sumptuous Korean dinner and the sans rival was oh so superb. I must go back there and I did the next day to take out the famous sylvannas. There are two available flavors, chocolate and... More

Their most famous product is Silvanas. Try also their Biko and Cassava pudding it's delicious as well. Most of the time this place gets crowded especially in the afternoon because most orders and take-outs are done in this branch.

I've heard a lot about this restaurant in Dumaguete and it surely lives by the good reviews my friends have. The sans rival is just okay but the silvanas is really good! It has satisfied my sweet tooth. Couple this with either coffee or tea and you can already doze off beside the Rizal Blvd. Will come back for pasalubongs... More
