First off in this list is the Flossom Cafe x Kitchen branch in SM City North Edsa.

The desserts in the cafe range from cookie dough to affogato, but the place is known for their unique take on champorado called the Ube Champorado (P280, ~USD5.47). A rice porridge breakfast dessert in bright purple instead of the usual brown, it’s infused with yema sauce and toppings of dilis for a subtle salty and sweet flavor.

As the only branch of a dessert concept store built as a cafe instead of the usual counter stall dessert places, The Lost Bread in SM Megamall is also the largest branch, bursting in pastel colors and decked with tables with wicker chairs made for you and your friends’ longer catch-ups.

The blue vanilla soft-serve is a popular staple, with its Italian gelato responsible for turning the usual white vanilla a soft blue. We love the Summer Camp Smores (starts at P165, ~USD3.22), a blue vanilla-flavored soft-serve on top of crushed graham crackers and accented with torched marshmallows to remind you of sunlit-filled summer camp days.

The blue vanilla soft-serve base is not too sweet, while the crushed graham crackers on the bottom make a rewarding treat.

If you haven’t been to any of their branches, the Matcha-flavored Tsujiri Sundae (P295, ~USD5.76 is their classic bestseller for a reason: it’s a creamy soft-serve bursting with matcha goodness, mixed with red bean, chestnuts, mochi, and genmai or toasted rice at the bottom for a rich, layered dessert experience.

Beloved Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory has made its way to the Philippine shores, and we love this particular branch of the factory in Ayala Malls Manila Bay that’s a store on its own instead of the usual stalls.

Wooden brown is everywhere, accentuated by the factory’s signature creamy white colors and blue typeface. The simple design combinations blend into picture-perfect cuteness.

A cheesecake add-ons costs P120 (~USD2.34) a slice, while a cookie is P60 (~USD1.17) a piece.
