A happy place made with love by Sophie's Mom - An Awesome Secret Foodies Tour

The Sophie's Mom bakery cafe in Tuscany at McKinley Hill (Taguig City)

Finally, we have the last stop of this awesome foodie tour in Tuscany at McKinley Hill, BGC.  It was one of a kind - a marathon of dining gourmet foods from eight among the great and fine restaurants of Tuscany food strip.  

I thought at first the cupcakes were offering to the gods.

We were told to go upstairs in the mezzanine of Sophie's Mom Bakery cafe and picked what we liked of the displayed cupcakes on the table adorned with fresh flowers. Considering the ambiance, I thought at first the cupcakes were an offering to the gods. Exactly, the pastries are heavenly in taste. Now we have our final after meal dessert at Sophie's Mom.  

Ladies and girls would love the pastries and how they are presented.
Even a serving of cold iced tea are prettily wrapped,  a work of feminine art

Why Sophie's Mom? You may ask. That is so, because this dainty cupcake and pastries store in Tuscany really started its business with Mom Sophie actually catering to her daughter's friends in high schools years back then with those scrumptious cupcakes and other delicious and beautifully designed pastries, drinks, and that later on she would include nice party dining wares and other feminine party designs

Signature pastries at Sophie's Mom include the red velvet with cream cheese frosting, Spanish bread, cronuts, lasagna, oreo cheesecake cookies, flourless chocolate cupcakes, and several customized cupcakes and other pastries.

You can buy in retail these Harney & Sons high-quality loose teas and tisanes that are organic and certified kosher.
Also available are coffee pods of Malongo gourmet coffee sold in retail which is hugely popular among espresso coffee connoisseurs.  Each pod is vacuum packed in natural filter paper ready for brewing with your coffee pod machine.
Other pastries, your choice of packaging for your bakeshop goodies, and novelty table wares. You can scribble a special note to someone and post it on the board behind a fancy girlie payphone.
