I always preferred the hushed and relaxing atmosphere of the coffee shop albeit my Sunday routine has changed since November last year. For the past 4 years I would spend most of my Sunday afternoons in a coffee shop to do my weekly report usually due the next day.

As L with the sweet tooth in Death Note once affirmed, the brain needs glucose to function. Here goes my Sunday afternoon cake list:

Mocha Cake & Oreo Cookie Cream Cake

Vienna Kaffeehaus in my hometown, Cagayan de Oro, is a restaurant famous for its delectable mini-cakes and Austrian-inspired dishes. My personal favorite here is the Mocha flavored cake.

Purple Yam Cake

This Purple Yam Cake really stood out among the usual Starbucks menu offerings of brown chocolate cakes. Its taste is new and refreshing as its color.

Rocky Road Cake

Ever tasted a Rocky Road ice cream flavor? If it’s one of your favorite flavors, you shouldn’t miss this Rocky Road cake from Starbucks.

Blueberry Cheesecake

I get weak for Blueberry Cheesecake. Honest. The artsy plating from Cheesecake, Etc. makes me want to stare at it and delay gratification.

Cookies & Mango Caramel Cheesecake

This is the most expensive cake on this list but it’s so worth it. As if cookie crumbs and mango aren’t sweet enough, you can still pour the caramel over it and it still won’t change the fact that it’ll be the best cake experience you’ll have in Bigby’s.

Mango Cheesecake

This Starbucks Mango Cheesecake pales in comparison to the  Cookies & Mango Caramel Cheesecake from Bigby’s. Available at half the price of the latter. Not bad.

Guilt-Free Indulgence Chocolate Cake

Starbucks weren’t kidding when they named this Guilt-Free Indulgence. It’s chocolate sweetness is not as fatal to your molars compared to the ubiquitous Starbucks chocolate cake.

Blueberry Cheesecake

Another Blueberry Cheesecake! No, it’s not a duplicate picture, this time it’s from Bo’s Coffee. You can ignore other cakes on their menu, just not this one.
