With a great number of people passing by this road in Escario, this little cafe still seemed unnoticed. Serving a good variety of Japanese cakes, it’s worth a stop to satisfy your dessert cravings and also an ideal place for an afternoon of catching up with a good friend over Japanese sweet treats.
Been here before for a slice of their best seller Caramel Banoffee Pie, and thought of trying their other desserts with a good friend Mr. Yoshino, who just arrived from Japan few weeks back.
The orange awning outside somehow makes you think of halloween, but don’t worry you, won’t be spooked out when dining here(Teehee). The smell of coffee welcomed us as we stepped in, waitress then greeted us a good afternoon and flashed a half smile before she took our orders. Seating around 16 people inside and around 8 outside, the cafe is really warm and homy.
————- The Cakes ———
The best seller, Banoffee Pie. Crisp pie crust, with a gelatinous middle, slices of fresh banana topped with whipped cream and then drizzled with caramel. It is not that sweet and the slices of banana and the caramel were very notable. I didn’t quite enjoy the gelatinous texture of the pie though.
Mango and Strawberry Shortcake. Two layers of shortcake, with whipped cream and chunks of mango and strawberries in the middle , whipped cream frosting and topped with a mango ball and strawberry halve. Not that sweet and really light dessert. Love how all the flavors complimented each other as they melt away in your mouth. Yum!
Mango Cheesecake. Beautiful right? And your heart just breaks as your fork slices over that good-looking cake. Just the right amount of sweetness, but I still prefer the cheesecake made with lotsa cream cheese though. But this one is a good alternative for those who want a little bit less of the calories from cream cheese. 🙂
Snowballs! For 10php a pop, this one is surprisingly good. It tastes like polvoron with a hard shell and sugar powder coating. Simple pleasures. ^_^
The very simple Ichigo milk did make me smile. 🙂
The place is really small and is good for afternoon chit chats. I love how the desserts are not that sweet. I think they can do better coffee concoctions though – and the awning as well. ^_^
With some more interesting pies to try from Micky’s, will be back real soon! Next slice is that intriguing Avocado Pie! Who wants to share the Avocado pie with me? 😉
