Iloilo City is full of surprises waiting to be discovered. One such surprise to first time visitors and even locals in the city is “Nothing but Desserts,” a French-inspired coffee and dessert shop, which had been attracting a steady following since its opening last year.
Nothing but Desserts recently introduced a new line of sweet treats to add to its menu full of sugary goodness. Explore Iloilo and Flavours of Iloilo were invited for a taste test of their new offerings.
First up was their Chocolate Medley, French Meringue, and Staciatella.

The Chocolate Medley had a fun and tasteful presentation that was in sync with the Christmas holiday season. As the name suggests, it is a mix of different kinds of chocolate, cream, and mocha.
The Staciatella was very tasty with its nicely balanced mocha and chocolate flavors.
Although, the French Meringue sported a plain white look, you’ll certainly get a new perspective after a taste of this dessert, which had a delicious incorporation of coconut flavor. We were told that it took months to perfect its taste.

Next up was Nothing But Desserts’ Pistachio Cake. Elegantly designed with light colors and artistic curved white chocolate topping. The Pistachio Cake was delicious and had well balanced taste.
If that’s not enough to give you a sugar rush, you must try the pavlovas at Nothing but Desserts. Pavlova is a popular dessert of Australia and New Zealand.
Pavlova is a meringue-based dessert traditionally decorated with a topping of whipped cream and fresh fruit of sweet/tart flavours. The Pavlovas at Nothing but Deseerts was crispy crust on the outside and chewy inside. You can choose from different flavors like Strawberry, Blueberry, Blackberry, and Grape.
The Lavazza Coffee was a perfect match to the delicious new dessert line-up. Lavazza is a popular coffee brand known as Italy’s favorite coffee.
