Ask any Cebuano where the best place for cakes is in Cebu and I guarantee that Leona's is in the top 5 list. Some are long-time lovers, others have discovered it when they finally opened a mall outlet, and the rest have just discovered its goodness. I don't believe I've ever heard someone I know mutter anything bad about this place.
Renovations are going on in SM because of the upcoming opening of F21, which looks huge by the way. Leona's place on the second floor has been taken over by these renovations and they have since relocated downstairs near Spice Fusion and Gerry's Grill.
I was so glad to see that they still had Cream Puffs (P16.00/each). When I was here last week, I tried buying some but unfortunately they ran out! Today, I made sure to get 6 pieces to bring home. These are my favorite Cream Puffs in Cebu. I love that they're not too sweet. But that also means I can finish 2-3 pieces in one sitting. Whoops! ☺
I also grabbed 6 pieces of Chocolate Eclairs (P16.00). I'm not that into their Eclairs (unlike SM and MR) but that way I get more Cream Puffs for me! LOL ☺
Here are just some of their other cakes and pastries creations. Their Chocolate Cake and Chocolate Mint Delight is very very good! At the entrance of the place, they also have breads, brownies, and sandwiches.
See? I'm not the only one that loves Leona!☺ The name is Leona Cakes and Pastries, but they also make amazing sweet and salty bread.
And look what I saw while walking around, the soon-to-open Krispy Kreme outlet. Targeted to open for November 2011, I guess this will be the second outlet (Ayala's outlet is planned to open in September of this year). Good news for Cebuanos! We won't need to go to Manila to satisfy our cravings no more! ♥
