CBTL has just amped up their cake selection

...with one of the best chocolate cakes in Manila


(SPOT.ph) To be completely honest, we never had an issue with The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf's pastry and dessert selection. Their chocolate chip cookies are amazing and so are their cheesecakes, but now they're introducing a cake that has somewhat leveled up their sweet offerings: Nono's Chocolate Oblivion.


To the uninitiated, Nono's Chocolate Oblivion is a chocolate cake made by dessert haven Classic Confections. Baba Ibazeta took three attempts to make it the legend we chocolate lovers now know. Named after her father (a joke that eventually stuck), this chocolatey spectacle is everything you look for in a chocolate cake. The cocoa notes come to you three ways: two airy layers of chocolate cake, whipped chocolate cream, cocoa powder. Then, you have walnut and praline bits, and caramelized toffee. We're only human, Baba.


Nono's Chocolate Oblivion is arguably one of the best cakes in Manila. It ranked No. 2 on SPOT.ph's Top 10 Chocolate Cakes (2011 Edition) and is ranked No. 5 in the current edition.
