Facebook Group such as Kaon ta ‘Pre or Support Local Food Bacolod is helpful to us, food hunters because members are updated of the newly-opened dining places in Bacolod City. When I read a post about the opening of a new restaurant or cafe, I usually save the post to reserve the new dining place for our next lunch or dinner.
RIA G. CAKES AND PASTRIES or simply, RIA G, as the front signage says, is one of those posts that I saved on my phone. Recently, we (Arlyn, my wife, Ciara, the third and me) had found some reasons to visit the place and I would like to share this with you.
1. Accessible Location
Locating the place is a breeze. It has a black painted frontage with white background signage which is in contrast with the predominantly classic color. The cafe is just within the highway, so if you are riding a public vehicle, as soon as you get off the jeep, you can immediately find this new cafe.

2. Interesting Wall Paintings
For first-timer, you will immediately direct your attention to the painting on the walls. The four-wall of the cafe is painted coherently with that of a caricature of chinky-eyed lady staff ready to give the tray of cake to their customers. Then the aroma of the cake goes around the walls with the images of the other food items alternately presented to project that concept saying that you have to taste our cakes first and you will surely enjoy our other food offerings later.

3. Creamy and Moist Sweets and Desserts
I think the selling point of Ria G. is there wide selection of mouth-watering desserts. I tried a bite-size of the Fudge Brownie ordered by Ciara. The dark chocolate taste, which is just enough melted in my mouth. It was peppered with tiny chocolate chips, which according to my daughter is not available from the brownies she tasted before.
I had the chance to talk to Ria. She told me that she was in the cake business before, selling the sweets online or to friends and relatives. With her experience plus the items go straight to the customer guarantee that the sweet treats are not pricey.

4. Best Pancakes in Town
If you are not a rice-eater because you are on a diet, then you should order their pancake varieties. This round, flat cake prepared from a starch-based batter, has a distinct not-salty-but-a little-sweet flavor and is best when eaten as is.
There are three varieties, but of course I ordered the biggest plate - Big American Breakfast. Yes, it is a big serving of two pieces pancake, one medium-sized sausage, three long strips of crispy bacon (the best), a small container of pork and beans and two pieces of toasted bread. This meal comes with a free brewed coffee.
|We shared this Big American Breakfast, costing P195.00 with my pretty wife.|
Bring your cellphone and camera when going to Ria G. You will surely love to take pictures of yourself and your food, too. You may flaunt them immediately to your social media accounts because they have a wifi connection available.
6. Personalized Service
You are lucky if you happen to visit the place when Ria is around. She is an amiable and pleasant lady who answered all my queries. I would love going to places with the owners around because I can immediately express my satisfaction or dissatisfaction to their products or services.
I am fond of supporting local and homegrown restos and cafes especially if I am impress with the food and services. We will continue to visit Ria G. Cakes and Pastries and will try out their Signature Moist Chocolate Cake and Oreo Cheesecake on our next visit.
