I’m going blind from this sweet, sweet craving
Let’s lose our minds and go crazy crazy
– Cake by the Ocean, DNCE
Everyone who knows me personally knows I have a sweet tooth. Not just the oh-I-like-cake-and-chocolate-a-lot kind; I am more of the SWEET-MOTHER-OF-JEEBUS-THAT-CAKE-IS-WHAT’S-MISSING-IN-MY-LIFE-TODAY-SO-HELLO-DIABETUUS kind. Thankfully, my friend owns a pastry shop in the city and she’s always there to be my enabler (is this a good thing or a bad thing? Ah well, as long as I get my sugar fix! Mwahaha!).
Jana’sSweet Spot is owned by Ms. Jana Caiña Abellanosa, a nurse-turned-phenomenal-pastry chef. While still practicing her profession as a nurse and medical researcher, she decided to enroll at Monster Kitchen Academy to spice up her life. Who could blame her, right? Ms. Jana is young, passion-driven, and simply put, just amazing (and I’m not saying this as a friend!). She graduated at the top of her class at Monster Kitchen and even bagged a few awards at the annual Kumbira Festival that’s held in Limketkai Mall during fiesta month. From taking small-time orders online until she finally opened a physical store at Capistrano-Akut Sts. in Cagayan de Oro City last 2014, Jana’s Sweet Spot has made a name for itself and is a place you should never, I repeat, NEVER bypass if you ever find yourself in CDO.
Jana’s Sweet Spot is known for its cakes, cupcakes, and silvanas which are made by none other than the owner and shop manager herself, Ms. Jana. You can be assured that there’s always a huge dose of love and dedication poured into every delicious creation crafted by Ms. Jana’s hands.
I keep going back for the shop’s silvanas! It is an absolute delight; a bite of heaven in soft chewy oversized cookie form.
Recently, though, Jana’s Sweet Spot has upgraded its menu and now serves crazy shakes! They come in different flavors such as chocolate, mango, strawberry, vanilla, and banana. I personally love the banana and chocolate flavors and they are called “crazy” for two reasons: the toppings range from huge cookies to tiny colored candy sprinkles and Ms. Jana doesn’t use whip cream… she uses butter cream instead! Now isn’t that a treat for sweet-toothed monsters like me?!
Why yes, yes it is.
annual fiesta DESSERT-all-you-can buffet
In line with the fiesta celebration the city prepares for, Jana’s Sweet Spot also commemorates such a special event by holding a buffet where you can stuff yourself with everything the pastry shop has to offer for one whole day and guess what? It’s for only 100PHP per person! You read that right! 100PHP FOR EVERYTHING IN SIGHT AT JANA’S SWEET SPOT! Provided, though, that you don’t take anything home and you don’t share your food with a friend (come on, guys. A true friend knows not to share food at a buffet). The buffet is still on going today, August 26, 2016, and will end tomorrow, August 27, 2016, at 8:00PM. Make sure to visit Jana’s Sweet Spot today or tomorrow and try everything out for only 100php!
