The food

After entering the store, visitors are greeted by an appetizing display of cakes. Those blessed with a sweet tooth, can indulge in Heavenly’s array of flavored cheesecakes.

The snack menu included Argentinian fave, Italian Pasta, American Deli, French Omelette, Belgian Waffle, Mexican Taco, French Toast Roll Up, and Famous Pinoy’s Best. They also served excellent hot and cold blended coffee drinks, tea lattes, smoothies, and Heavenly signature drinks.

Heavenly Cafe and Pastries opened just this year and had already attracted many patrons, not only for their delicious food and drinks, but also because of their budget-friendly prices. Almost all menu items were sold at under P100.

The verdict

Heavenly’s signature House Blend Native Coffee really stood out for me. It was strong enough for my caffeine fix and had a, surprisingly, distinct taste that caught my attention at first sip.

Tuna Pesto Pasta was really good. It was one of the best I’ve tasted in Iloilo. The Spicy Beef Taco was also perfectly done with just the right spiciness and cutesy bite-sized serving.

Last but not least, the French macaroons, Smores Cheesecake, Pecan Caramel Cheesecake, and Hersheys Cheesecake were among the dessert options at Heavenly that I liked the most.

All of their cheesecakes had a delicious, rich and creamy base. Sold at P85 per slice, they were of great value compared to other dessert shops in Iloilo.

Heavenly Cafe and Pastries had a relaxed feel and comfy interiors. It was located at the ground floor of the GT Plaza Mall, which was a convenient place to hangout after visiting the Molo district plaza, Molo Church, or even the western end of the Iloilo River Esplanade.
