Room for Dessert is just a stone’s throw away from Casa Verde, so you could definitely guess where our next food destination was right after our heavy meal. Personally, I’m the type who considers a meal incomplete without ensuing a much-needed dessert. Even if it’s just a pudding or a bite of chocolate, I always appreciate having something sweet to munch on. There we had some blended drinks, cakes, and soft serve ice creams with melt-in-your-mouth fairy floss, among the many kinds of post-meal delights and snacks that they offer.
As they say: There is always room for dessert. Dessert doesn’t go to the stomach; dessert goes to the heart.
My self-entitled addiction to desserts somehow leads me to consume more than the 1,500 calorie restriction I’d imposed to myself in the name of diet. That’s because sweets are heavenly – they are sinful and tempting. Room for Dessert has plenty of delectable selections that will surely call you out coyly, with nothing sort of a subtle seduction.
Every time I watch the counter dispatch some of its luscious creations, my stomach aches for it. Sweet. Rich. That creamy texture that I’d want to take it in on my mouth directly. Ahh, yes.
Room for Dessert: Cakes & Beverages
Cakes are such a treat to have, especially when it comes in the form of indulgence. I’ve been known to many to express great fascination for cheesecakes, so I went looking for them at Room for Dessert. I had the Lemon Curd Cheesecake, which made a sweet imprint with its flavorful hint of lemon frenzy at every bite.
A notable delectable dessert that I just have complete attachment to is their Red Velvet cake. The cream on the top and its layers just melts right in your mouth. Contrary to most red velvet I’d tasted, this one has the right consistency of sweetness and balanced with enough creaminess. I’d order this one again in a heartbeat.
The Tiramisu was the perfect blend of cocoa flavor enriched with the cream cheese mousse. I’d say this option tied with the red velvet, but I couldn’t discern very well which of the two made more impact, so it probably should be a tie.
For an even more enjoyable choice, try their Rainbow cake. Amazingly enough, this one wasn’t overwhelming to the taste at all.
Room for Dessert also offers beverages to go along with your sweet treats. They have smoothies, ice blended coffees, and teas in wide varieties. For a much more affordable price, their coffees and other beverages actually taste similar, if not better, compared to high-end coffee shops around the metro.
If you’re famished and want to fill in your stomach with sandwiches, they have a variety ranging from Tuna Salad, Roast Beef, Turkey, Egg Salad, and many more.
Room for Dessert: Soft-served Ice Cream & Fairy Floss
One of the things they uniquely offer are their soft-served ice creams with various types of toppings and fairy floss cotton candies. Each serving is priced at P59 (cones) and P69 (cups), together with a combination of toppings and fairy floss of your preference.
Among their favorite toppings are the gummy bears, Kit Kat, M&Ms, and other chocolates, cereals, candies, and cookies. Mix in a maximum of two toppings on the soft-serve ice cream altogether with any fairy floss color, and have it in one mouthful! Yum!
Of course, being an extremely obsessed chocolate lover, my favorite has to be Ting’s Heavenly Chocolate. This vanilla ice cream combo comprises of chocolate toppings such as M&M and Kit Kat bars as well as a fairy floss drizzled with chocolate syrup.
Ambiance & Location
Room for Dessert is located in the Sky Park of SM Seaside City Cebu, the newest and one of the biggest operating SM branches here in Cebu set to surpass SM Mall of Asia. Its outdoor extension serves as a park located on the highest level of the mall, so you can get a scenic view of the city, mountains, and sea from above.
This dessert place is enclosed by transparent glass walls, making the Sky Park surroundings and the golden sunset on late afternoons even more visible.
Their interior is chic in mostly black and white, which has a comfortable and laid-back ambiance. It’s not as dark as most cafes are because of its see-through glass walls, and the sunshine makes up for its black and white interior.
The details are even fancier and creative with its mason jars, tea pots, scribbled black boards, and industrial lamps overhead.
A couch is placed in the middle spacious enough for an entire group of friends. Tables and chairs are dispersed on one side, each good for up to four people. Overall, approximately 30 people can populate the area given all accommodations.
If you happen to drop by at SM Seaside City Cebu’s Sky Park for an afternoon of lounging around or just to chill, then I definitely recommend Room for Dessert. For me, it’s a perfect place to get some work done because the breeze is really refreshing, and almost all their foods are my favorite! 🙂
