Vizco’s strawberry shortcake in Baguio is, oh, so good!

Strawberry shortcake is delicious!

Strawberry shortcake is delicious!

It’s one of the best desserts in Baguio and is reason enough to drop by Session Road on a cold evening to pair with a cup of freshly brewed coffee. Or as a fitting cake after dinner. Vizco’s strawberry shortcake is unpretentious but memorable.

A slice sits on a white dish with the fork pierced at its side when served, as they do with the other cakes. Two layers of strawberry sponge cake with thick cream filling between and on top while freshly sliced local strawberries crown it. A forkfull is enough to make me close my eyes and smile. The hint of sourness of the strawberries gel well with the tempered sweetness of the cake and cream.

Although I come to Vizco’s for its cakes, they also have interesting food, mainly pizza, pasta and rice dishes and combo meals more akin to fastfood. But their fried chicken is so delicious! There are also sandwiches and breads with the latter not their forte. The restaurant at Session Road has a small area although there’s a second floor and there’s a branch near Camp John Hay.

I do frequent the main branch and I like the small place, cozy, with a good small cafe vibe with helpful attendants.
