Usually people go to the UP campus to eat street food but don't miss out on eating here. The atmosphere on the 2nd floor is great, especially when there's someone on the piano .The food is reasonable and tastes quite good. I'm a bit disappointed with their desserts but you can't have everything. I've been here a few times and... More

nice place to dine. there are two areas - the 2nd floor and the ground floor areas which are actually two separate restaurants. (they are on opposite sides of the building). the 2nd floor dining area is a little noisy come lunch hour but serves a lunch of the day (LOD) which are home-style Filipino dishes. the ground floor dining...

What really wowed me was their iced tea, since it isn't the regular pre mix nestea ice tea that is often served elsewhere. It is served with honey or syrup to sweeten it. The food is delicious comfort food, though prices can get a bit expensive for the main dishes. Favorites are the chicken kiev, chicken in a basket, spinach... More

This place is a great way to unwind and bond over good food and drinks. I always like their iced tea. Not that expensive and that honey/syrup gimmick is nice. However I would recommend their coffee homebews have a refillable or bottomless option as well. Only downside is the waiting period is quite long

If you're looking for a place to hang out with friends and spend a quiet afternoon with each other's company while enjoying good food then this is your place. Delicious cakes and served in generous portions. I'd go back again and again and try every cake on their menu.

I have always gone to Chocolate Kiss in U.P. Bahay ng Alumni for my Devil's Food cake cravings. As always, the taste of the cake is very good primarily because of the marshmallow frosting. However, the savory food they serve is a different story. I ordered the Chicken Kiev and Onion Rings. These were the dishes I often have when... More

I always push for homegrown restos and neighborhood cafes so I always TRY to like choc kiss and I always fail to do so. The food is average, the cakes are to sweet, the wait staff are not attentive. I also think the price is too high for its location. But, there are people who like it, maybe I just... More

I've been eating here for more than 5 years now. I love their cakes, food and their bottomless house blend iced tea that i cannot miss. I am also a fan of their daily specials which comes with the said ice tea and leche flan. I cannot last a month or sometimes a week without coming here. Though there is... More

Not to be missed are the pasta dishes and their luscious cakes. The iced tea is redolent of the Butterfly Iced Tea of the 70s and they use local lemon, calamansi. The syrup comes separately so one can actually mix the quantity into the juice to his liking and taste. Thoughtfully, the resto even has try-out sizes of its cakes,... More
