Who doesn’t love dessert after (or even before!) a meal? We know we do! And sure, people say too much sweets would be harmful to one’s health, so instead of exercising too much restraint, might as well make your sugar fix count with Zee Lifestyle‘s recommendations for the best places to have great desserts in Cebu.
For those hot days, rainy nights, movie marathon afternoons and midnight snacks, ice cream has always been there for us. With so many exciting flavors to choose from like Pistachio, Chocolate Truffle and Salted Caramel, Gelatissimo reminds us of strolling along the beautiful streets of Rome and the sun on our shoulders.

Homebaked and fresh are two things that are hard to find in cafés these days. However, a little side trip to 32 Sanson in Lahug lies a hidden gem with a relaxing ambiance. Offering freshly brewed coffee and baked goods right from their kitchen, Marisse Patisserie has become a sweet getaway in the heart of Cebu.
A short climb on the highlands of Cebu rests a beautiful paradise away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Delice Recipe features a first hand experience of Cebu’s beautiful skyline as well as their must-try Quattro Leches – a spongy chiffon cake soaked in 4 kinds of sweet milk. Pair that with coffee or tea and that’s a one-way ticket to dessert heaven. You’re welcome.
Busay, Cebu (before Tops)
Crepes are a must-try at Tymad Bistro, a French café in Banilad owned and operated by a French chef. We recommend topping it with anything that tickles your fancy, whether its Nutella or Mango and Whipped Cream. If that’s not up in your alley, macaroons, cheesecakes and parfaits are also ready for devouring.

Abaca Baking Company
With fresh breads and coffee in a Parisienne feel, Abaca Baking Company is quickly becoming the trendiest place in Cebu. The place is great but do not be fooled, the food is even greater. All food and drinks are whipped up right from the kitchen with the freshest ingredients they can get their hands on.

Marco Polo Plaza
There’s the famous Malicious Cookies but aside from that, we highly recommend Marco Polo Plaza’s Earl Grape Iced Tea. The tea is served with elderflower-infused ice cubes and Earl Grey Tea poured over seedless green grapes. Along with a freshly baked lokum or Turkish delight, the drink is surely the perfect cool down for the summer heat.
