This place is the home of delightful sweets that has a great potential to rule the cakes and pastries world. Sans Rival is the taste of Dumaguete.

Silvanas are so good! Perfect with coffee! All of the pastries being sold looks appetizing. Unfortunately I only have a few hours to visit this place. I would love to go back and taste everything!

Blessed with a central location on Rizal blvd, I read about Sans Rival on LP and looked forward to try some of their cakes and coffee. As it turns out all we ordered was mediocre at best and very much in line with the overall poor quality of the bakery prods in the Philippines. The mini apple crumble were almost... More
