I think what I love most about Dumaguete is its laid-back atmosphere which makes it easy for anyone to feel at ease and welcome in the community scene. Equally wonderful is the fact that there are hundreds of amazing places-- restaurants, bars and boutiques-- to discover within the city. Keep reading to find out three awesome places that I tried out while I was there!
Dinner consisted of grilled burgers, Buffalo wings, fries and mac and cheese. The place was very fun and cozy and reminded me of a retro-themed diner complete with black and white checkerboard floors. If I went to school in Silliman University I could definitely see myself hanging out in Flamin' Grill Cafe most nights.

After having dessert at a Korean shop we head off to Worldview Hotel where we were supposed to stay. Unfortunately, because of some mishaps with our reservations the hotel gave away our room to someone else! Well at least the receptionist was kind enough to refer us to another place. We ended up in a smaller inn, across the Korean shop we earlier went to. Our room was small and it had a bit of cleanliness issues. My only consolation was that it was air-conditioned, the en-suite bathroom had a heater and it was cheap.

In the afternoon, before my trip home, we hit Sans Rival Cakes & Pastries to buy goodies that I could bring home and, of course, to eat. Sans Rival Cakes & Pastries is a well-known local shop. Personally I think no trip to Dumaguete would be complete without a visit to this dainty little bakery. I bought their legendary Sans Rival cake and two boxes of Silvanas- they now have chocolate-flavored ones, oh joy!
