Having studied the art of pastry-making in France and being an interior designer in the past made it possible for owner Angela Villoria to create the most stylish desserts. Most of their cakes come in shareable sizes, but mini-sizes are also available for individual indulgence.
Their bestseller is the Aurore (Php 700, mini-tart for Php 170), a chocolate tart with macadamia and caramel. It has this ample level of sweetness and flavor of cocoa that is practically like tasting bliss in your mouth. Primer also recommends Ligaya (Php 550, mini-tart for Php 130), their dayap (Philippine lime) tart that is a perfect balance of sweet and sour, and Louise (Php 900, mini-tart for Php 200), their take of the pecan pie that is chewy, gooey and nutty in all the right places.
