I ordered the Banana Nutella Cupcake and was a little disappointed. There's no hint of fresh bananas and nutella in it. My daughter's Toblerone Cupcake was dry and with so little chocolate flavor. Blueberry Cheesecake in a jar was ok. No hint of creamcheese though. Crushed graham crackers could use a little more butter. You guys have all the time you need to improve your cupcakes. Looking forward to tasting better ones. We'll be back. :)

So i tried this place because it's their grand opening yesterday. The name is very unique and very creative. But the name would be more catchy if the ambiance will perfectly match to it. I think the place would also be great if it has bigger space (Open another branch, consider bigger place please). I am sure the place also affects the whole concept and food they serve.

First about the price. It is indeed affordable! And the location is very commercialized, competition is high (2 128077 for that! ).. But sometimes the cheaper the price of the product, the smaller serving and quality is at stake. That's what I noticed yesterday. I tried their tuna pasta. I taste good, but the serving was too small. And it only costs 115 (not bad) but it took me 5 mins or less to finish that! Hahaha

The place, like what I said earlier, is too small. Considering the high volume of human traffic, they could have invested on the place. Or might as well tried to add a take out counter where people could line up and take their orders. I saw lots of people standing and waiting to be seated, and i felt quite uncomfortable seeing others waiting for their seats.

And I got free cheesecake in a jar (the one posted)! Wooohooo (well my friend promised me one!). The concept and presentation are superb! The serving is also big but the price, i guess they could sell that a little cheaper. But honestly, the oreo cheesecake in jar, the portions were like: 50% whipped cream, 30% oreo/cookie bits, and 20% cheesecake. Actually I can't find the cheesecake. It seemed like the sweetness kf whipped cream dominated the whole oreo cheesecake in a jar

Recommendation:
In the future, if ever you have plans on having more branches, consider the place first! Find bigger space where customers could stay longer, 'cause you are serving desserts or comfort food, and customers would love to stay longer to relax and have chit chats while eating their favorite sweets and food! :)

Try consider increasing the price and leveling up the serving and quality. Try taking big risks! :) as long as the price will be very reasonable. :)

I remember the morning I went here. I was craving for bacon so I searched looloo for breakfast places I haven't tried yet but I couldn't decide. Then I saw the picture of Royal Chimney's Bacon and Egg French Toast on looloo weekly. Boom! Problem solved! I immediately went here! I also ordered the Red Velvet and Kahlua Mudslide cupcakes. The meal was just okay. The bacon, egg and french toast were very oily but they were a bit bland. I even added syrup to the toast and salt to the egg to make it better. The red velvet cupcake was pink and the cake itself was similar to lemon square's cupcake. The frosting was good but it still doesn't justify the P60 price. The kahlua mudslide was uber delicious but it was small for the P70 price. The crew were very nice but they were too many for the place. It was already small so adding the three or four people working there made me feel so cramped.

Now for the cupcakes, my mom wanted me to review their best sellers. Of course, I tried their RED VELVET CUPCAKE first...more like PINK velvet, the cupcake itself is too small for its price. The taste was so so. Here are the the rest of the flavors: the one with the Danish-like design is their Strawberry Daiquiri (known to be the most recommended), the chocolate one with the champola stick is known as Kahlua Mudslide (127775127775127775127775 for this one! I like it! It's sooo chocolatey, another best seller) and the last one is their Amaretto Almond Cream with almonds on top, tastes so-so.

Imma try their cake jars next time 128521

My mom bought food from this little nook for me to try, took it out cause in sick (128575 I got flu). She wanted me to try their ALL-DAY BREAKFAST FOODIE from tapa meal to vigan longganisa, and of course their cupcakes (this on my second review). The meals are 100php and below. Tasted the French toast, tapa meal and longganisa (both go with tomato slices and choice of how you want your egg to be). Gave it 3 stars cause for me it was SO-SO.

One thing that I may have liked about it is, if ever I'd be craving for cupcakes this store is 3 streets away from my place. And if I go hungry, I can order for their 100php meals. Affordable? Yes. Compared to others.

A meal for less than 100? Good deal? Yes? Well, not always, I would rather pay more to other resto for a better meal. Plain and simple, I would say that they "need to rethink" their menu plan, food taste and serving size. Their meal serving is 3/4 rice and 1/4 meat and egg 128548 if someone would ask me how's the food here, two words, "No Taste". I'm not trying to be harsh, take my review for the betterment of your establishment. I'll try this again hoping they would make some improvements. 128077

The resto is quite small, though they have just opened recently last may 20 I guess. The cupcakes here are a bit pricey considering their size and taste.

I would rather buy one from sonja or any other big cupcake store with the same price. Yes Indeed their price is close or higher than the bigger names out there.

Sorry to say but I really cannot recommend these for all the cupcake lovers out there. The base of the cupcakes are not soft and taste weird.

Tried the following:

Tapa Rice except it wasn't tapa rice but just tapa, rice and egg. Taste was meh. Serving was so small. Overpriced at 100 pesos.

Vigan longganisa rice except it was just vigan longganisa, rice and egg. Taste was meh. Serving was so small. Overpriced at 100 pesos.

Bacon and egg toast was okay.

Ice tea was ok for its price.

Root beer float was ok for its price.

Kahlua muddling cupcake was dry. Taste was meh. Overpriced at 70 pesos.

Service was understandably slow because they're still on soft opening.

Will return for their toast I guess.
