Most of the time after I had my meal in a restaurant, I always have room in my stomach for desserts. When I heard about 10 Dove Street Confectionery, I was very curious to try this place. I heard from other people's experience that this place is very fancy, and they offer great desserts, which gives us a perfect reason why we should go there.
After we had our lunch in ilaputi, we decided to have our dessert in there. Fortunately, both of these restaurants are located in the same building, which is convenient since we do not need to use a car.
This is a cafe and dessert shop that offer cakes, ice cream, and other delicious sweets. Furthermore, they also offer drinks such as coffee and cold drinks. It is located on an Axis Entertainment Avenue in Camputhaw in Cebu City.
I found out this dessert shop also has other branches in Cebu City. They have one in I.T. Park, Sm Seaside cebu & Oakridge Business Park in Cebu City, and in Chong Hua Hospital Mandaue.
Because I only tried in Axis Entertainment Avenue Branch, I will only base my experience in that place. When I entered this dessert place, there were many desserts to choose from.
Firstly, when you enter inside, you can many cakes displayed in the table and the refrigerator. I am not sure what do you call that thing. You have many kinds of cake you can choose, and they all look good.
Secondly, in front of the counter, they display nice desserts with a catchy name such as banoffee, cookie bomb, cheesecake and many more to choose.
Lastly, if you are not a fan of cakes, they do have ice creams display in the parlor where you can choose any kind of flavor you want.
We tried 6 different kinds of desserts here, and they are all delicious.
We order Vanilla Ice cream, Cookie Bomb and S'mores. The Vanilla Ice cream seems ordinary, but the S'mores Sand Cookie Bomb looks well presented. The Cookie Bomb serves with cold milk where it can help soften the crust of the cake. I prefer to eat it well ice cream since eating the cookie bomb seems missing without ice cream.
Another delicious cake I tried is mini blueberry cheesecake and Banoffee. By the word itself, it is small round cheesecake which is similar as to other cafes that sell cheesecake. On the other hand, the banoffee is what I find it very interesting. It is a pie that is mixed with banana, cream and biscuit. I am not sure what kind of biscuit it is, but it taste good.
Lastly, we ordered two different chocolate desserts: A typical chocolate cake and a nutella bar. The chocolate cake looks ordinary, but the nutella bar seems interesting to me. I personally love nutella chocolate, and I am excited to try this.
My Review in 10 Dove Street Confectionery
We ordered 6 different desserts, and I have mixed review on each of them. The cookie bomb and the Banoffee is my favorite. Not only the taste is good, but the presentation is outstanding. I like when they included the cold milk since mixing the milk on the cookie bomb fits the taste well. The Banoffee has a very strong banana taste which fit perfectly with the cream. I love the presentation of this dessert, and I find it very delicious. If I will return again to 10 Dove Street, I will definitely order Banoffee again. This is a must try for all dessert lover.
Furthermore, the vanilla ice cream tastes delicious, but truthfully speaking, the presentation is boring compared to other ice cream shops I tried in Cebu. I also enjoyed eating the S'more cake and blueberry cheesecake. They taste really good, but the blueberry cheesecake is a bit expensive for a small piece like this. In my opinion, the cheesecake from Bo's coffee taste better, and the size is way bigger than this.
Lastly, the nutella bar and chocolate cake is just average. I was a bit disappointed about nutella bar. I don't really taste the nutella flavor when eating this cake. It seem underwhelming. On the other hand, the chocolate cake taste like any other chocolate cakes. It is not the best chocolate cake I tried, but they are generous with the size since they serve big portion.
Also, I really like the interior design of the 10 Dove Street. The place looks like you are in Europe since it is an high-end cafe. It is beautiful and it has a great placebo when eating there. I am sure when you eat your favorite cake or ice cream while using your laptop, you will enjoy your moment here.
In terms of its price, it is relatively similar to other ice cream cafes or parlors. Most of the prices of these desserts are between 200 to 250 Philippine peso. I believe the big in the table or in the cake display fridge is the one that is a bit expensive. However, the size is also big which is understandable. Lastly, they have great customer service. The staffs are friendly and they are not grumpy.
