Here Are Some of Our Dessert Picks from Glorietta and Greenbelt

August 8, 2019

With an upcoming set of food tours, Ayala Malls gave us a sneak peak into some of the establishments lined up for their Dessert leg. So if ever you find yourself in Glorietta or Greenbelt with a sweet tooth that needs satisfying, here are some restaurants you’d want to try out and our team’s picks per place.

1. Mad Mark’s Creamery and Good Eats


With its flagship in Kapitolyo, Mad Mark’s is known for their comfort food, which comes in hefty portions good enough to feed a starving army. But aside from the savory stuff, Mad Mark’s is well-known for its sweet treats, starting with “made from scratch and honest ice cream”, which they’ve used in a number of dessert items you can choose from.

Our Pick:


We love Mad Mark’s Javan Chocolate ice cream (PHP 85/scoop)and how its flavor reminds us of a slightly sweeter tablea that’s churned extra thick and creamy. The Rolling Dutchman (PHP 160) is a great pick if you’re looking for a more filling option. Ice cream of your choice is sandwiched in between pancakes with one side slathered with gingery Biscoff spread and the other with Nutella. We’re still debating whether it’s good for sharing, but with an ice cream treat this good, maybe you’ll just keep it to yourself.

2. Café Shibuya


Known for their 2 and ½ inch high toasts dressed with your sweet item of choice, Café Shibuya is a popular establishment up North, to the U.P. and Ateneo crowd because of its quirky setting and laidback environment. Now, Café Shibuya is now conveniently located in Glorietta 2, for those who couldn’t make the trip up North.

Our Pick:

For us, we feel that simplicity works the best for Café Shibuya, and their Original Shibuya Honey Toast (PHP 175 for the regular size) speaks volumes about the quality of ingredients Café Shibuya uses. With just the right balance of sweetness and texture, you have a filling snack that’s easy on the sugar, but with buttery flavors seeping out of the toasted bread. A scoop of vanilla ice cream sits on top, but wait for it to melt a bit for a creamier, milkier taste.

3. Café Breton

Crepe 2

When we think of crepes, Café Breton immediately comes to mind. The versatile yet delicate French pancake is offered with various sweet and savory fillings that’ll surely satisfy whichever craving.

What We Love:


Our Pick:

Despite the long list of dessert options, it’s a tie between their Butter, Sugar, and Lemon Crepe (PHP 95), and their Gwenn ha du Crepe (PHP 220), which has raclette and black cherry preserves. The salty-tangy-sweet balance makes the Gwenn ha Du stand out from the other fruit-filled, ice-cream-topped choices on the menu. Best downed with the Calamansi Vodka Slush (PHP 150),which is a refreshing, adult take on the familiar citrus drink.

    Breton’s Butter, Sugar and Lemon crepe is one of my all-time favorite desserts. It’s all my favorite things on plate! I love how all the flavors work against and with each other. Plus it’s really light, so it doesn’t feel as sinful. The Gwenn ha du sounds iiiiiiiiinteresting and I will give it a try when I get the chance.
