Experience – Divine Sweets Bakery and Café – Puerto Princesa
My daughter and I were in Puerto Princesa City in the Philippines for a holiday, and I was looking for a bakery or cake shop in Palawan. I almost lost hope finding a cake for the celebration of my daughter’s birthday because the time was so slim to buy one. Even the hotel restaurant that we were staying had no available cake or pastries. It was supposedly a surprise birthday cake, but we had to eat out that night, and I couldn’t think of how to buy a cake without her knowing.
We visited Robinsons Place thinking we could at least eat out in homegrown restaurant in Palawan. Luckily, we chanced upon this bakery and café called Divine Sweets. From the outside, it looked like an ordinary cake shop, but good thing there were more food to eat here. A full meal was available, and we ordered crabstick salad, seafood pesto linguine, and beef lasagna.
There was a wide selection of cakes to choose from, so I asked my daughter instead to select whichever she wanted to taste. She opted for the tiramisu and Chocomocha Embrace. She usually likes strawberry smoothies so she got one. I was able to get candles for her to blow after my singing of a lousy happy birthday song.
The pasta is reasonably priced for its serving size, and I liked the seafood pesto linguine particularly. It was quite creamy, and I didn’t expect it that way. The lasagna had thin layers of pasta. I liked it that way. The cakes were light and fluffy, so having them for a dessert wouldn’t make you feel overfilled. Both the tiramisu and mocha cake were less sweet but tasty.
The total bill was only Php 830. Per slice of cake ranges from Php 90-150.
Overall, the dining experience in Divine Sweets Bakery and Café is satisfactory. This one is located at the ground floor of Robinsons Place in Puerto Princesa, Palawan. Divine Sweets Bakery and Café saves me from untimely official celebration the birthday of my daughter.
