Skip the meal and go straight to that chocolate cake!

Desserts are a thing of the past, present and future. Cliché as it may sound, these darlings will always find their way to our hearts (and stomachs!), but we almost never complain. An added factor is that restaurants and cafes have been getting creative day by day in producing the sweetest creations that we just can’t help but try!

With all the options we can get just about anywhere, you won’t be needing a golden ticket to get access to these heavenly dessert places.

We’ve already done a similar list and featured places like Kapitolyo, Maginhawa, Ortigas, and even Uptown Mall so now it’s time to go to North’s counterpart – UP Town Center in Katipunan.

Update: Check out our new Buy 1 Get 1 deals this week!
