Table Suggestions: Classic Confections at Greenbelt5

Calamansi Bars from Classic Confections by Table for Three
Calamansi Bars

We love Baba Ibazeta-Benedicto’s Classic Confections.

If you haven’t been to a bazaar in the past eight years, you might have missed out on some amazing baked treats. Since 1999, Baba and her partner, Kat Malvar set up Classic Confections and started sell in bazaars around Metro Manila. Business has been booming and now, Baba has taken to next level, a Classic Confections Cafe.

Located at Greenbelt 5, this little jewel box of baked temptations is a must-stop for fans of Classic Confections or for those weary shoppers looking for delicious sugar high. Since, A. and I in a bit of rush after lunch we decide to pick up a box of Calamansi Bars for A. and a bag Chocolate Chip Cookies for me. Yum. The sweet sugar rush…

Now you can take seat, order a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy a slice of Nono’s Chocolate Oblivion or nibble on Russian Tea Cookies. We are so looking forward to what new baking creations the new shop will inspire.

    We were at G5 to watch the Christmas opera show and one of the singers told us to try it out. I'm glad we did. The mocha sans rival was fantastic! My daughter loved their vanilla cupcakes and we took home a box of chocolate cupcakes for hubby. Prices were also good!

    Hi Joey, Mila and Anon,

    I'm really happy for Baba for taking such a big step.

    But like I said, I'm really looking forward to lovely treats she will be creating next. :)

    I am so super proud and excited for Baba! It really was only a matter of time before she opened her own place. :) I stopped by for more of that highly-addictive (!!!) almond roca of hers that I love so much when I was in G5 for a dinner last week. Her place is really charming.

    Hi Rosanna. Thanks for the credit. :) Most people don't credit or even ask permission for that matter. :p
