Sweet Inspirations is a restaurant, bakeshop, and catering company along Katipunan in Quezon City just in front of Ateneo. They opened their 2nd branch at the 3rd floor of Hemady Square Bldg. E. Rodriguez Sr. Ave. Quezon City also. I’ve been here many times already and I won’t get tired coming back. They are known not only for their delicious cakes but most of all they have the best Mongolian Buffet.

Committed to constantly satisfying their customers with great food at the best value, Sweet Inspirations continues to serve its customers after 26 years of service. One of the oldest and long-standing establishments along Katipunan Avenue, a short commercial strip now dominated by food chain giants, Sweet Inspirations has created and maintained a following among families, professionals, and students of neighboring communities and institutions.

Sweet Inspirations prides itself for its delectable desserts, regarded by its customers to be the best and most gratifying in Manila. This, together with home-cooked, appetizing a la carte favorites, has given Sweet Inspirations a reputation for offering nothing but exquisitely delicious food. Aside from serving downright scrumptious food, Sweet Inspirations holds the highest standards in food quality. Sweet Inspirations ensures that the best quality ingredients are always being used, strictly maintaining a no MSG, no food extenders policy in food preparation. Even better, Sweet Inspirations maintains a very cozy and cordial ambiance conducive to a get-together with the family, or a laid-back afternoon with friends. It has a homey atmosphere where one can just experience the simple joy of dining great food, as though you're within the comforts of your own home, with our friendly staff always waiting to serve you.
Went here last September 6 in the morning and reward myself with a good meal that mid-week. Avail their combo meal. Pasta + cake of the day. Carbonara + Banana Cream pie was a perfect combination and served with iced tea. Price is around 200 pesos. Good deal right!
Want to go back again and try their Mongolian Buffet. For only P 380. You can crEATe All-You-Can with the BEST Mongolian Rice Bowls in town!
No MSG, No preservatives. They’ll serve it to you HOT & FRESH!
Then they have this Breakfast Buffet too for only 250 pesos.

Sweet Inspirations gives us excellent food, excellent service at great value for money is Sweet Inspirations' equation for its long-standing success.

See you there and Have A Sweet Day!128522

While guests can enjoy cakes and other sweet treats in Sweet Inspirations, my personal favorite thing to do is to head to the Mongolian Buffet. For P380, a guests can avail of the buffet. They can pick from pork, chicken, beef, squid, fish fillets, and fish balls and mix it up with noodles, rice, vegetables, and a whole array of sauces. There are even helpful signs that instruct was sauces or condiments to heap onto the bowl to make the resulting dish sweet, spicy, sweet and sour, and the like.

For those not into the buffet, they can also order a single bowl from the Mongolian Buffet for P240, from Mondays to Fridays and from 10:30 am to 3 pm.

Still the best Mongolian Barbecue in the Metro bar none.

For only P370 you get to enjoy unlimited Mongolian Barbecue. Whats good is that you can put all the meat and seafood you want unlike in other similar restaurants where the same is controlled. Word of caution though, do not overstuff your bowl with meat because it could ruin the fla or of the food. Make sure everything is balanced.

I would have given this place a 5 if it had ample parking and service is a bit quicker. No matter what, this place still deserves high marks.

Let's eat like a Mongol!

Went here to come back and taste their Pistachio Sans Rival Cake (96php).According to their staff, it's their specialty. Upon tasting however, it doesn't fall far from the usual cashew-filled sans rival.

Super sulit and super good!
I went back three times! 128541128541128541
Pigmode to the max!

Make sure to save room for dessert! With all the cakes and pastries displayed ... You really can't help but eat at least once slice! I went for the Tiramisu! My friends chose the Sansrival and Strawberry Shortcake. All cakes were equally good! 128076🏻

They also do catering as well!

Their staff were very nice and super attentive!

Cafe Sweet Inspirations at noon turns into an eat all you can Mongolian Bowl joint.

Step 1.  Get a seat (place is packed)
Step 2.  Prepare your Mongolian Bowl.  Pick your veggies,  you can add rice if you like carbs,  add sauce (there is a recipe of sorts posted depending on your preference -  spicy / sweet and spicy), pick your meat (choices include - beef,  pork,  chicken,  squid,  fish fillet,  chicken liver and squid balls)
Step 3.  Pass your bowl to the server and take a number
Step 4.  Chill and wait for your customised Mongolian Bowl to be served.

I followed the spicy recipe.  Skipped rice,  added bean sprouts,  carrots and bell pepper,  added chicken,  beef and pork.  And voila,  Mongolian Bowl ala Reich.  This bowl of stir fried goodness is oozing with flavors,  the meat is cooked perfectly and best eaten hot.  Price tag - php 360, not bad eh?

For a straightforward recommendation, I so love their pistachio cake. It melts in your mouth. They offer unlimited Mongolian buffet for 360php which I find so sulit. Plus they have variety of pastries to choose from. I also like their cordon bleu rice meal. Haha it's like you'll love everything in this cafe. From rice meals to viands, not so pricey too. What will really make you stay are their staff who are so welcoming. Better drop by and for sure you won't leave empty handed :)

The place isn't that big and the food they offer isn't that grand as compared to other buffet restaurant. The best thing about Sweet Inspirations is the homie feeling it brings because the place is cozy and people are very friendly, food is good as well. Various cakes are served too and believe me, they'll bring you to cloud 9! #12Days

Café Sweet Inspirations is an institution in Katipunan and they serve a mean breakfast buffet.  That's what he said. 

There is veracity in his claims.  Yes,  the joint has been around for quite sometime and they do serve a mean breakfast buffet.  I say this after three breakfast buffets and one late night visit to nurse a cake craving.

The buffet is reasonably priced.  You get to pick from myriad of Filipino breakfast staples.  From tapa,  longganisa,  tocino,  dried herring,  danggit and adobo.  You get to pick from plain rice to good old-fashioned sinangag, pair it with fluffy scrambled eggs,  if you want to carbo load,  get some pancit canton. They also serve fried eggplant and shrimp paste.  You can nurse a bad cold with their arrozcaldo and champorado.  Dont forget dessert,  they have kakanin too and some pastries.

I liked their tapa,  tender and flavorful.  The danggit never goes old,  i pair it with arrozcaldo.  Aside from tge hearty dishes, one thing that makes Café Sweet Inspirations is their excellent customer service.  The servers are quick and pleasant.  Full house on a Sunday morning is a walk in the park,  that's how efficient they are. 

If you don't feel like waking up early and wants to have something sweet,  try the pistachio sansrival.  Teal colored frozen cake that is nothing but awesome. Crunchy,  buttery and creamy. 

I have yet to try the Mongolian Barbeque Buffet they have during lunch time.  Maybe next week.

This place is kinda "hidden" even though it's just along Katipunan Ave because their signage isn't easy to see. 128514

Thought this was just an all-coffee, all-desserts café, to my surprise they also do Mongolian buffet for P300, I think. 128584 Well, to be honest, my first bowl was a failure. At 22, I still don't know some cooking games, so what I did was, I just put some rice and every sauce I saw. When I gave it to their staff for it to be cooked, it tastes soooooo salty!!!! 128541128552128541128552128541128552128541128552128541128552128541128552128541 But I had to finish it since they charge P150 for left over. It was unedible, but I had to finish it.

On my second bowl, I followed their posted instructions on how to make a sweet & spicy rice... I followed it and it turned out good! 128522 Lesson learned: Don't pretend to be great cook and mix everything you see. Finally I was able to eat it but that's just all. Can no longer finish a third bowl so I went for dessert already: Leche flan! 127854

They have lots of cakes and pastries. Can't wait to try the others. 128522

Breakfast buffet for 250 is good. Filipino breakfast at its finest. Only complain though is the spacing between tables.

Mongolian buffet is good and affordable! I have my own sauce combination though - half a teaspoon of brown sugar, 4 teaspoons of garlic, 2 tablespoons of Mongolian sauce, 1 tablespoon of teriyaki sauce, 6 teaspoons of chili paste and half a teaspoon of chili (siling labuyo) 978697869786
