Calea Coffee & Pastries: Beguiling Bacolod City Eats

Who doesn’t like an afternoon merienda, snack, occasionally? While visiting Bacolod City last month with some friends from Guimaras we stopped at a place known for its coffee and cakes.  “Calea Coffee & Pastries: Beguiling Bacolod City Eats.” 

We stopped at the Balay Quince, Lacson St (15th Street) branch. It was busy as a funeral home fan in July. Though we managed to find some seating, we couldn’t locate an unoccupied table for our whole contingent.


Ate Lorna and Lou had to sit at a separate table.


My lovely asawa was enjoying her dessert.

I thoroughly enjoyed this slice of chocolate cake.

You can’t miss the cafe’s unique entrance. Service was first-class despite the crowds. The coffee and cakes we’re simply heavenly. If you’re ever in Bacolod City, make sure you make Calea’s one of your stops.
