Sans Rival Bistro

International in Dumaguete

Much of the menu of burgers, sandwiches, seafood and Filipino standards is ordinary and relatively pricey, however it's worth a visit for the style and ambience of the dining room housed in an attractive colonial-style building facing the waterfront. The all-you-can-eat Sunday breakfast buffet (P285) is a good deal.

Around the corner on San José St is Sans Rival Cakes & Pastries, a small, modern spot selling addictive silvanas (cookies filled with buttercream), cake and basic pasta and sandwiches.
