There will always be that old favorite that will never be eclipsed in greatness by any newcomer, no matter how grand. The classics are those you opt to go for despite the vast number of choices laid out in front of you. On a free night, I’d choose to watch Die Hard than some other new Jason Statham action flick. Some days, I’d go for Max’s fried chicken over KFC or Jollibee chicken.
One such classic is the Cecil’s Snack Inn & Bakeshp in Davao City. From when I was a little kid, everytime I visited Davao, there would always be a trip to Cecil’s. Be it to start the day with their breakfast silogs, snack on their luscious durian roll, or to stock up on their pastries to bring home to Manila.
Last month’s visit was no different. By hook or by crook, I was going to stop by a Cecil’s branch. The entire city is peppered with branches and one such branch was right across the hotel we were staying at (yey!). Before meeting up with relatives, I took the chance to (drag my parents and) grab a quick bite.
Because we just had breakfast, we just ordered light meals. They have combo meals that come with a drink and a brownie, all for an affordable p88 (owners must have Chinese leanings, eh). Here are some of their snack meals that are sure to comfort and warm up your tummies as they did ours.
Besides all these, I am also in love with Cecil’s cream puffs and eclairs and make sure to bring some home after every trip. If you’re all about the fancy, you may scoff and find that they aren’t up to your standards. Cecil’s baked goods are not artisan quality but they are nommy, well-made, comforting, and cheap. They have a booth in the Davao International Airport, which makes it easy to grab a box or two of these sweet and savory treats after every trip to Davao.
No bacon rating for Cecil’s for the simple reason that they are a classic and everyone should try their noms. If you are in Davao, or will go to, and haven’t had a chance to do so, stop by soon for a comforting snack.

- Didn’t get around to posting this last week but this is a homemade burger I made last week. The patty is a mix of beef and pork and the bun is a savory almond-chia bread. Added cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and a bit of mayo and it was a a healthy hearty meal. #highfatlowcarb #happyhealthyawesome #alternativebread - July 8, 2017
