Room for Dessert SM Seaside City Cebu: Review + Top Picks

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.

Red Velvet Cake

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.

Room for Dessert Tiramisu Cake

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.

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.

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.

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.

  1. I have not been to SM Cebu Seaside. I will definitely bring my family here next time we are in Cebu. I always have room for dessert, too. 😉 That rainbow cake was calling out to me! hahaha I would most likely pair it with a fruit shake/smoothie.

  2. I’ve been to Cebu and I missed this! I will make sure to visit it when I go back. I thought Room for Dessert only offers ice cream in a cotton candy. I didn’t know they have cakes and smoothies too. Their cakes looks so appetizing! I hope they open a branch here in Manila. I’ll be the first customer!

  3. Oh WOW! Just started getting cravings while reading your post and looking at your photos! My friends and I will be in Cebu next year June 😀 We’re so excited and I’ll definitely have to check this place out 😀

  4. Oh I wish I’m in Cebu right now. Thos desserts look so delicious. Although, I am trying to control my sugar intake because I am pregnant.

  5. Mimi, you have put a lot of heart and soul in this blog post. Your post is as tasty as the dessert. By the way, which camera did you use while taking thse pictures?

  6. It’s really hard to watch calorie intake and maintain a summer body form, especially if a sweet tooth. The Lemon Curd Cheesecake looks really yummy. I will definitely add Cebu to my itinerary when I visit the Philippines in a couple of years.
