My recent visit to the City of Tagum in Davao Del Norte brought me to one of the City's home grown Cafe - YUYU CAFE AND DESSERT SHOP.
Yuyu Cafe and Dessert Shop is one of the newest additions to Tagum City's list of must try dining places where extravaganza of delectable desserts and various mouthwatering cuisines are conceptualized to meet one's discriminating taste.
Opened on July 8, 2010, Yuyu Cafe and Dessert Shop is managed and co-owned by the two equally lovely sisters Emerald Uy and Ciara Isabelle Uy, daughters of Tagum City Mayor Rey Uy. Chef Emerald Uy studied Culinary Arts at the Culinary Institute of America, Hyde Park, New York, USA and got a Diploma in Pastry and Baking at At-Sunrice Globalchef Academy, Singapore. With her expertise, she takes charge of the kitchen and personally prepare almost everything to insure the quality of every food they serve.
Here Are Some Of Yuyu's Sweet Delights:

FOR MY CHOICE OF COFFEE
Just months of operation, YuYu Café, situated along the National Highway is making a name in the food business in Tagum City. Emerald Uy excitedly told me that YUYU CAFE AND DESSERT SHOP aims to make it prices affordable without sacrificing its quality. Indeed, coffee at Yuyu's is much cheaper than any other coffee shops in the City. Delectable cakes are sold less than a hundred bucks.
I am a chocolate cake fanatic. When i tasted Yuyu's, it didn't disappoint me. My favorite is the CHOCOLATE TRIO. And for the price of Php 95.00, surely, it is more than worth the price.
SO, when in Tagum City, do drop by YUYU Cafe and be charmed by their sweet delights. I experienced it once and surely I'll go back there and be delighted again.
