Since moving to my rented condominium unit, I haven't really explored the neighborhood aside from my expected visits to convenience stores and quaint restaurants nearby. I chanced upon a post about this bakery and confectionery in San Antonio Village too so I planned a morning visit before going to work.
Sophie's Mom is located at 8760 Residences, along Santol corner Aranga Streets. The store is very cheerful and charming. It is spotless- everything looks clean and fresh. The sight of the pastel colored decors brightened my day amidst the gloomy weather outside.
Sophie's Mom offers a variety of cupcakes, eclairs, breads and mochi ice cream.
One of their best sellers is the Spanish bread. A pack (P120) contains 10 pieces, although you may opt to buy on a per-piece basis (P12).
I bought a few pieces and now I regret my decision. I should have bought a pack because these are a delight. The bread is heavenly soft and the filling is just so rich that I cannot pinpoint if it's yema, pastillas or plain butter and sugar. I am actually munching one while doing this post. I am saving the last few pieces for later!
I also got a Dulce de Leche cupcake (P50). How can you say no to this darling?
And lastly, I made sure not to miss the mochi ice cream! I bought two- one for me and my J for dessert after lunch today. I chose Chocolate Valhrona and Lemon Meringue (P40 each). Other flavors include Vanilla, Strawberry, Cookie Dough, Frozen Brazo-Vanilla, Chocolate Banana and Leche Flan-Vanilla. I can't wait to try the rest!
I am officially adding Sophie's Mom to my list of favorite food places! And since it is conveniently accessible to my place, I have more incentive to drop by regularly.
Please visit their website at www. sophiesmom.com. I am sure you'll drool over their delicious treats.
