The hole-in-the-wall bakery and cafe Kitchen Diaries has moved to an even tighter space above a flower shop on East Capitol Drive, in Kapitolyo, Pasig City, but they made sure to leave a lot of room for their tempting confections—as well as some mouthwatering new ones.
In their mission to make affordable cakes and treats, Kitchen Diaries has come up with a P99 rainbow crepe cake—a combination of two trending and very picturesque desserts. (Actually, it's not really a crepe cake, but something of their own formula.) They're calling it Rainbow Bright and just looking at it already makes our day sunnier. The vibrant paper-thin crepes are held together by a mildly sweet cream. It's delicate, the way cakes like this should be, and especially satisfying with a cup of coffee. (They have an interesting Red Velvet Cappuccino.) We're not ones to judge books by their covers, especially since there's a lot of flavor going on—but we can't forget that this one is definitely strong on the visual impact.
Kitchen Diaries is all about cheering you up, from the colorful walls to the vivid icing choices. While you're enjoying your color-spectrum of a crepe cake and cappuccino, you need not be alone (unless you're having me-time, then it's all good!), here's something for the kiddos to enjoy--a rainbow of cookie cups with encouraging words lettered in frosting on the sides. They're called "Wokies," a portmanteau of "word" and "cookies." All this needs is a cup of their homemade ice cream.
You need to keep your eyes peeled for the small sign, enter a building, follow some arrows, and climb through a narrow stairway to get to this little bright blue enclave. But cheer comes out of nowhere, and you can find it here.
Kitchen Diaries is at 2/F 11 East Capitol Drive, Kapitolyo, Pasig City.
