Fulfill Your Sweet Tooth's Fantasy at Gem's Dessert Garden Caloocan

Hello po! Sometimes, when you wanna hang out in a cafe, you get hesitant to pair it with pastry 'coz a slice of cake can easily set you back like a Php 150 or so! Good thing, we now have dessert buffets like this Gem's Dessert Garden - one of the FIRST to offer unli in Caloocan! Your Php 150 allows you to taste all the cakes (and more!) to your heart's content!

Gems Dessert Garden,

I am mighty pleased to blog about it. You see, since the time they have newly opened, we have been getting our fill of delicious and affordable desserts. We are real customers of this place and we appreciate how sulit it is. Yes, sweets = sugar, but I find it would be alright, just remember the golden rule - everything should be in MODERATION.

GEM's is derived from the names from the owners- Grace, Ethel, Melanie. It's nice to know that they contribute to the livelihood of residents of the city. Cakes are baked by unemployed moms of Caloocan, staff are students of Colleges in Caloocan.

Gem's opened last July 16, 2016. It's pretty cool that the place has a pretty ambiance, own comfort room and FREE Wi-Fi. The crew are courteous and welcoming.

Rates:
Php 99 - Unli for 1 hour (Table 1 only, add 11 for drinks, add 10 for ice cream scoop).
Php 149 - Unli for 1 hour (Table 1 and 2, with drinks, add 10 for ice cream scoop).
Php 199 - Unli for 2 hours (Table 1 and 2, all access everything).

Unli Dessert Caloocan,
