Calea is a homegrown cake shop known for their 'best-tasting' and affordable delicacies. Their cheesecakes are a must-try!! My friends always recommend their mudpie cause it is BOMB. No doubt, their cakes and pastries are worth the visit. However, they are always crowded and have...very limited parking space. Best if you could give them a call to reserve a table because customers often have to wait to be seated. Would recommend this place to tourists for sure! A solid 8/10 for me.More

The sweet people of Bacolod love their cakes. Calea is reputed to be one of their best shops. They deserve better.

Cakes are ok but nothing special. You can still try it to see for yourself if it’s your first time in Bacolod. Personally, I think it’s just a hype.

It's funny to think that fifteen or so years ago Calea really was an oasis in Bacolod. Even then it was an institution with its cakes, confectionary and coffee attracting universal praise. Today business is still good but to be honest four out of five...cakes tasted a little synthetic: the frozen mudpie, the fruit cheese cake, the chocolate cheese and the blueberry cheesecake. However tue pecan pie topped with ice cream was delicious and I doubt whether it will be bettered anywhere in these islands. A real classic combo. Guess what I'll be having next time!More

So many cakes and maybe with the Philippine standards becoming higher, I don’t think this is the best anymore. The cheesecake was obviously not made with real cheese: they added something to make it overly sour not like real cream cheese with a slightly tangy...taste. The chocolate used was not the good quality kind, often a problem with local Filipino desserts. Happy to see the shops bustling with tons of clients though and one cake each. If you compare it to Manila prices, it’s a lot cheaper but the quality is also a lot lower.More

VERY VERY VERY BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE! We understand it's Sunday, Family day. But there was this long table, that's empty and when we came and asked if we can occupy it, the servers told us it was reserved. We waited for other tables, and it...has been like 30mins passed before we decided to just order for take away, we asked again the servers if we can still take the empty seats, as it has been half an hour passed, and no one came. And we're in a big group, with senior citizens with us. Minutes later, group of people that just came, was accomodated to the area, and split it to 2 tables, means it's not the who reserved the table. We approached the server and asked them, that we thought it was reserved, but it was given away to other people right away? she told us that the supervisor gave them the heads up to just give away the tables since the one who reserved didn't came. SHE EVEN TOLD US WE SHOULD HAVE APPROCAHED THE TABLE RIGHT AHEAD FOR US TO BE SEATED!!!! BUT IN THE FIRST PLACE WE WERE THERE WAITING, LONG TIME TO BE SEATED AND NONE OF YOUR STAFFS ASSISTED US OR EVEN APOLOGIZED!!!!!! NO ONE!!!! No one even exerted an effort to atleast tell us SORRY!!!!! My siblings we're so ashamed that they recommended your place to us, since it's our first time visiting Bacolod. You should train your staff, not just providing cakes that are dry and too sweet. It's too overrated. Will never come back again.More

There is no doubt that the cakes are to die for, the staff are nice and helpful and the atmosphere is perfect for after dinner desserts or just to meet up for conversation with coffee and dessert. However, the place has no working toilets for...their customers with automatic flush system and tissue paper, what the hell?! . The toilets are just disgusting!!! Please do something!!!More

If you are in Bacolod, Calea cakes is a must try. They have several varieties from chocolate cakes to different kinds of cheesecakes. Ay very affordable price you can already buy a slice and pair it with a hot coffee or hot choco. For me,...Calea is not just food but but an experience as well.More

Visited their Robinson's branch. There's not enough room. I think they should have a bigger place. I like their place along the Lacson St which is bigger and more appropriate for groups. I extremely love their triple chocolate mousse. Super creamy and yummy!. Lemon pie...is also superb and a must-try! Mud pie is well-loved by kids. Carrot cake is also great. This is a must -try for everyone!More
