Karlo's Gourmet and Coffee

After spending two relaxing days at Pearl Farm Resort, it was now time to go around and experience Davao City! First stop was Karlo's Gourmet and Coffee located at Jack's Ridge Resort and Restaurant. I heard that this is the place to be especially at night time. Too bad we only had a couple of hours and had to catch a flight back to Manila by 6pm.

Dining al-fresco

A little bit of history: The land where Jack's Ridge is currently located was underwater a million of years ago which was evident in the Taklobo shells found there. Then, during the end World War II, it became a part of the headquarters of Japanese soldiers in Davao City. I wonder if there's a hidden treasure somewhere.

Durian cake sells for Php84 per slice

I'm not a coffee drinker but it smells so nice!

Durian Mousse Cake -- The closest I can get to liking durian. It is really an acquired taste.

Cake of the Month: Angelique Mango Cake -- Fresh mango is so evident in every bite, I love it!

Sugar overload for an adventure-filled day. I'm ready, let's go!
