Pop Rock Bakeshop and Cafe
Though located at the corner of Tiano Bros. and J.R. Borja Streets, this Iligan City-based sweets business isn’t that well-known yet with Cagayanons, having only opened in 2014.
Many in fact admit passing by the place without realizing it’s there. The place is actually a throwback to the café of the same name in the Archie Comics.
Though the deco is somewhat inspired by the comics and Hardrock Café, the atmosphere inside is very homey and warm. It holds business hours from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Not only do they serve an array of cakes and pastries but also snack items, short orders, and full meals, all at affordable prices. Their chocolate moist cake, velvet cake, sylvanas, sans rival, and tiramisu are favorites of the regulars.
Hanabel was a popular small diner and sweet pastry shop at the corner of Pabayo and Tirso Neri Streets in the Divisoria area until fire destroyed the building it was tenanting in, though the place did escape the fire.
It reopened back in 2013 in the same location after a new building was constructed.
It still serves those delicious cakes and pastries as well as its vegetable salads and cooked meals it has become famous for.
This small, cozy, homely, and somewhat charming neighborhood sweets café at the corner of J.R. Borja and Tiano Bros.

Their blueberry cheesecakes and chocolate moist cakes are taking customers by storm as well as their breaded pork and lasagna. Their tea drink variations are worth trying. Everything is at reasonable prices.
This place has actually been featured in a Manila-based magazine due to its specialty Sylvanas.
This specialty plus their cakes is what endears it to a frequent clientele even if it’s only a small place located on the corner of 12th and 21st Streets, Nazareth subdivision. They also serve a variety of chiffon-type cakes, fudgy brownies, and cookies.
Aside from their famous Sylvanas, they’re also famous for their blueberry cheesecake, walnut brittle leche flan, opera cake, and chocolate mud cake. The Sylvanas actually come in nutella-filled, peanut butter, and ube flavors. They also have a small kiosk located at the ground floor of the Ayala Centrio Mall.
This is one international name that needs to be in this list since it serves a good variety of tasty pastries, cookies, and cakes as well as sweet coffee and flavored frappes that have all become favorites for its regular clientele. The first Starbucks branch opened at the main entrance of the Limketkai Center in its own building.
It instantly became a hit for both coffee lovers and sweet tooth aficionados. A second branch opened at the Ayala Centrio Mall ground floor. Contrary to popular belief, Starbucks doesn’t allow franchising, which means whatever you taste in, say, New York, must have the same taste in Cagayan de Oro City. This assures only the most high-quality Seattle coffee for its customers.
One of the oldest coffee place and pastry shop that opened in Cagayan de Oro City in resemblance to large coffee shops in Manila and Cebu. The first Bo’s Coffee opened along Apolinar Velez Street with a second branch at the Limketkai Center Rosario Arcade.
Unfortunately, both branches no longer exist, and Bo’s Coffee has a solo location on the ground floor at the Ayala Centrio Mall. They still serve those sweet treats like pastries and cakes that go very well with their various coffee flavors and frappes.
They even serve great short orders for meals or snacks. This café is popular among the locals who love their coffee at only half the price of international brands.
A local café that is actually a classic favorite of many students and professionals, presently located at the Rosario Arcade, Limketkai Center. Another branch used to be outside the Xavier University Gymnasium on Corrales Avenue, but has since closed.

It is usually packed in the afternoons with students and professionals with their laptops and tablets enjoying the cakes, pastries, coffee, and frappes while doing work or leisure thanks to the free Wi-Fi.
