An all-time favorite destination whenever I visit Cebu is La Marea Café. I really like their Classic Warm Brownie Cup (Php95). It starts with a cake batter/mixture which is placed in a bowl, then microwaved for a minute or so. Then topped with Vanilla ice cream. I love how it is chewy-gooey, warm and cold. I really like the contrast of temperatures you feel when you have your first bite.

As much as possible, I have it every day of my stay in Cebu. So I always make sure that my friends try it too. Last 2010, I was in Cebu for Corral’s wedding. I brought Boo, Dee, Ly and Inna to the café -- they so loved it. And then Cebu 2011 happened, I made sure Ar, Mako and Jennie tasted it. As for Boo and Di, since they knew about it, they were just excited to eat the Brownie Cup everyday.
They offer a wide range of brownie cups where you can choose, depending on your preference.
The other flavors we’ve tried were: Peanut Brownie Cup (Php95), it had chunks of Choc-nut on top. This is for the peanut butter lovers. The Triple Chocolate Brownie Cup (Php95) was too chocolate-y for me, but chocoholics will surely enjoy this.

And for someone who has the sweet tooth like me, the Yema Brownie Cup (Php95) will top the list.
