Treat Street Cafe is Cebuanos' latest sweets destination as it opened it's branch at the 2nd floor of Ayala Center Cebu's Expansion Wing. Cebu's newest address for dessert dining, Treat Street Cafe is sure to delight and tickle one's palate as it offers delectable cakes, pastries and coffee that are familiar yet unique and made with uncompromising quality using only the finest ingredients.
Although this dessert kiosk was just recently launched, the years of culinary experience and expertise that the person behind this venture brings to the table is an indication of what one can expect at the Treat Street Cafe. A seasoned cake designer, Trina Ang Kokseng is the lady behind the famous brand Cake Couture by Trina. After finishing a program in Wilton School of Cake Decorating in Chicago, U.S., she took an apprenticeship under the internationally-renowned cake decorator Colette Peters. Following the creation of Cake Couture seven years ago, Trina eventually expanded her product line to include the Ciao! Brand of biscotti and the Bocca Felice Line of assitered pastries for all occasions.
After the success of Trina's pastry line, she decided to open Treat Street Cafe. "Opening a cafe felt like a natural extension for me to hone my passion for great pastries and to share it with others." She says. "It's a place where people can go for dessert or afternoon snacks, where they can enjoy good coffee and delectable cakes. It's a place where pastries are classic but the atmosphere is cool and modern."
A must-try is its signature dish, the Treat Street Pie, a version of the classic Turtles Chocolate Cake made of a cholocate cookie crust with layers of fudgy chocolate, caramel and walnuts and topped with whipped cream.
From their line of savory pies, Treat Street Cafe's best seller is the Spicy Lechon Pie - a twist on the traiditional meat pie. The lechon meat filling seasoned with a secret blend of spices make this universally-known pastry uniquely Cebuano.
The Brownies a la Mode in red velvet, salted caramel or fudge flavors, topped with a generous scoop of ice cream is a hit among groups of friends as its generous size begs to be shared.

As sweet treats are best paired with coffee, Treat Street Cafe serves the premium Illy brand to perfectly complement their distinct line of cakes and pastries. It is also best paired with Biscotti.
With Treat Street Cafe, one will always find room for dessert. Discover Cebu's newest dessert dining experience and enjoy the finest cakes, pastries and coffee at any time of the day.
Treat Street Cafe is located at the 2nd floor of Ayala Center Cebu's Expansion Wing (beside the soon to open Rustan's Department Store)

Our Heroes at home, our Mother, has always been the busiest employee of all time without asking any salary or return. Thus, leading detergent brand , Breeze took care of their laundry chores, washing a total of 481,536 clothes, in a series of events held simultaneously in multiple barangays in Metro Manila, Pangasinan, Batangas, Cebu, and Davao.Breeze treated more than 19,000 hardworking moms across the Philippines to a day of rest, games and exciting surprises at the first-ever 1 Laba Day.
Celebrity moms and surprise guests, including Sige Moms Christine Bersola-Babao, Gladys Reyes and Dimples Romana, headlined the nationwide events. At Barangay Commonwealth in Quezon City, radio DJ Laila Chikadora also kept the crowd entertained with her witty jokes and led the fun bingo games where moms won bicycles, skateboards, inflatable swimming pools and other toys for their children. These prizes were meant to encourage moms to be Sige Moms who let their kids play and go on exciting adventures.
While the moms enjoyed their day off from doing the laundry, Breeze Laba Ladies and Laba Machines, sponsored by campaign partners Electrolux, LG, Whirlpool and White Westinghouse, took care of washing their clothes.
“We know how hardworking our mommies are, spending as much as three to four hours a day doing the laundry. Today, Breeze is taking care of washing their clothes so they can have some time for themselves and to have fun, as our way of thanking them and recognizing their admirable efforts,” said Mara Banson, Breeze brand manager.
“As part of the Circle of Sige Moms, our job is to encourage mommies to allow their kids to be kids, even if it means getting dirty or having stained clothes,” said Christine. “When we say yes to playing and going on adventures, we say yes to our children’s intellectual, emotional and physical growth.”
“My daughter Callie is very artsy and likes working with her hands. We love baking and often, we’d be covered in icing and food color of every hue,” said Sige Mom Dimples. “But I’m glad I allowed her to do that, because it’s very fulfilling when you see your child achieve great things because you allow them to do their own thing and pursue their passions.”
“Being a mom is a 24/7 job,” added Sige Mom Gladys. “But because we have a dependable partner in Breeze, doing the laundry becomes easier and effortless. We can spend less time on washing clothes and have more time for ourselves and our family.”
1 Laba guarantee

Aiming to provide the best Dining Experience to Barkada and Family, Blackbeard’s Seafood Island brings the first and original ‘Boodle Feasts’ to the Queen City Of the South. The Seafood Island Boodle Feast is first of its kind, creatively re-inventing the way ‘Filipino food bundles for groups’ are created and presented – a trend adapted by most of the other Filipino grill concepts soon thereafter. Last August 27, Cebu Bloggers Society Inc. was fortunate enough to experience the true meaning of Boodle dining with true Cebu Bloggers friends.
