When The Chocolate Kiss Café announced that they were closing down their business for good, many were heartbroken.

Their goodbye actually came in stages. A beloved food spot located inside UP-Diliman’s campus; the family-owned restaurant initially closed its physical store in August 2020 during the first waves of the pandemic. Though the business still churned out it’s signature bakes in their commissary thereafter, it couldn’t survive the onslaught of the times and eventually closed its entire operation by June of last year.  

We are so happy to announce though that the cakes behind The Chocolate Kiss Café are making a quiet comeback. This time, however, the folks behind the brand decided to introduce themselves with a different moniker on Instagram: Weekend Bake PH. The new name captures the spirit of how the owners want to go about their operations: making small batches of The Chocolate Kiss’ original cakes exclusively in their home kitchen and only on weekends or select periods. Upon stalking their IG account, they started offering their homemade cakes in December 2021—it just goes to show that you can never beat a good cake store down.

To get your Chocolate Kiss Café Cake fix, you need to check out first when and what the owners will be offering for the period. Their cake lineup includes the following bestsellers —the famous Dayap Chiffon Cake, Kahlua Butter Cake, Carrot Cake, Devil’s Food Cake, Prune Cake, and a rotation of their other signature cakes like Sans Rival, Orange Chiffon Cake, Quezo Chiffon Cake, Chocolate Chip Cheesecake, and Sour Cream Cheesecake. Baked treats like Dayap Pastillas, Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts, and Loaded Oatmeal Cookies are available on occasion as well. Pick-ups are done from Fairview, Quezon City.

Far, yes but what’s the distance compared to the promise of tasting again one of the metro’s beloved cakes? As far as we’re concerned, we’re just happy they’re back, even on a smaller scale. Remember, the original Chocolate Kiss Café was born from a home kitchen. So having it reborn again as the Weekend Bake is a sweet promise of a new beginning.
