They also sell an assortment of candies that are colorful and enticing! Kids will surely go gaga over their retail store! Gum balls, Skittles, small and giant lollipops, chocolates, gummi candies, etc, etc! It's a Willy Wonka kind of place!

But they're not all about sweets.  As they entered the local scene, we learned that they also have an extensive menu of beverages ranging from single serve drinks to goblet huge ones that you can have spiked or not, out of this world milkshakes, Martinis, Draft and Premium Beer, Wine, coffee, iced tea, etc etc! Aside from this, they also have an extensive food menu that will surely give you a hard time deciding what to get! From pancakes, waffles and French Toasts, all day breakfast sets and lunch sets, salads and soups, appetizers, sandwiches and burgers, pasta, entrees, desserts, ice cream sandwiches and chocolate fondues and a Kid's Menu - it has a lot to offer!

Went there on a weekday for a sponsored dinner - Sugar Factory x Zomato x foodfanaticph = YAY!!!

Just look at those chandeliers!

The place was huge! Spacious dining area, high ceiling, chandeliers, plush booths, cushioned seats, mirrors, an overall black and white theme plus a candy store in one corner.

This place has a classic yet modern and sophisticated touch. It has this private club effect, only brighter and without the heart thumping music. It's a perfect venue for big groups and for parties!

As if that's not enough, they also have a second floor that's as gorgeous but with a smaller floor area. It's a more private space, if you'll ask me and is perfect for intimate gatherings!

We got to sample a lot from their menu - from breakfast items to mains and even drinks!

Pancakes: Banana and Walnut and Red Velvet

Sugar Factory Gigantic Buttermilk Banana Walnut Pancake from Sugar Factory
Gigantic Buttermilk Banana Walnut Pancake for 340Php

A big plate of Buttermilk Pancake that was soft and fluffy but a little dry. It's topped though with banana slices, toasted walnuts, cinnamon sugar, dusting of powdered sugar and finished off with whipped cream.

It was also served with maple syrup on the side. It was just okay, honestly.

Red Velvet Pancakes from Sugar Factory
Red Velvet Pancakes for 320Php

Three regular sized Red Velvet Pancakes topped with lots of white chocolate chunks, orange zest, a dusting of powdered sugar, buttercream and side servings of whipped cream and maple syrup. I would love to love this because it looks simply gorgeous with that red hue but it was just okay.

A closer look at these red pancakes!

The pancakes were fluffy but not too "red-velvety" in flavor. Could have been better if this was served with cream cheese, but nah. The white chocolate chunks were too sweet making this breakfast treat cloying.

Salad and Appetizers: Chef's Salad, Bruschetta and Nachos

Signature Sugar Factory Chef's Salad from Sugar Factory
Signature Sugar Factory Chef's Salad for 495Php

I loved this salad mainly because it has Jamon Serrano! It was also loaded with ingredients! Crisp mixed greens, arugula, shaved Parmesan, tomatoes, cucumber, candied walnuts in a raspberry balsamic vinaigrette. It was also topped with poached egg. I loved the contrast of sweet and savory, hints of sourness and lots of textures in between!

Bruschetta from Sugar Factory
Bruschetta for 280Php

Warm Baguette slices topped with tomato, basil, evoo and Parmesan. Looked appetizing but never had the chance to try these.

Sugar Factory Party Nachos from Sugar Factory
Sugar Factory Party Nachos for 440Php

A loaded platter of colorful nacho chips topped generously with spiced ground beef, melted cheddar, jalapenos, sour cream and tropical salsa. This was good! Tasty and savory, perfect partner for your cocktails!

Sandwich and Burger: Spaghetti Sandwich and Signature Burger

Grilled Cheese and Spaghetti Sandwich from Sugar Factory
Grilled Cheese and Spaghetti Sandwich for 385Php

Honestly, I didn't notice that there was cheese in this sandwich. Though the bread was toasted nicely and loaded with Spaghetti Bolognese, there was nothing special in here. Why? The spaghetti itself was just okay.

The Signature Sugar Factory Burger from Sugar Factory
The Signature Sugar Factory Burger for 445Php

Thick and juicy Angus Beef burger patty, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, crispy onions, ketchup and mayo and your choice of cheese - Cheddar, Swiss or Blue. This one's pretty good.

Mains: Orange Chicken and SF Fried Rice from Sugar Factory
Mains: Orange Chicken and SF Fried Rice for 565Php

For mains, we tried this dish. There was way too much rice vs. the meat here. The Orange Chicken tastes like your usual Chinese fast food orange chicken and the fried rice was okay. Nothing special here.

Old Fashioned Milkshakes: Make a Wish and Giggles Snickers Milkshake

Make a Wish from Sugar Factory PH
Make a Wish for 325Php

Made up of Vanilla Ice Cream, blended with vanilla cake pieces, sprinkles, cupcake syrup and topped with whipped cream, rainbow sprinkles, vanilla cake cubes and a birthday candle, this milk shake is ready for all your birthday well wishers! It's sweet and thick with a rich vanilla taste, I loved this one!

Giggles Snickers Milkshake from Sugar Factory

This one's the bomb! Just look at that! Insane milkshake! Cookies and Cream Ice Cream blended with peanut butter, topped with whipped cream, then there's a whole bar of Snickers, waffle halves and a blow pop! As if that's not enough, the mug was covered with chocolate and dressed with colorful sprinkles and Snicker bites! It spells SUGAR OVERLOAD but I'm telling you, it was so good! The sweet tooth in me was so delighted!

Drinks: Goblets and Martinis

Goblet drinks at Sugar Factory PH
Let the show begin!

Their goblets bring in the show. Goblets full of ice served with ice, ready to be poured with liquid. Once they start pouring, the show starts! Lots of cold smoke! Much like that cloud of clean white smoke when you buy Nitrogen ice cream! 

Energy Bear Goblet from Sugar Factory PH
Energy Bear Goblet for 490Php - w/out alcohol | 870Php w/alcohol

Love gummi bears? You might like this drink too! It's an energizing and refreshing blend of watermelon vodka and other spirits, tropical fruits with a dose of Red Bull Energy Drink to keep you going!

Sunshine Tea Goblet from Sugar Factory PH
Sunshine Tea Goblet for 400Php - w/o alcohol | 780Php w/alcohol

Tea-based cocktail that needs more tea and lemon because with all the ice in the goblet, this one tends to get watered down so easily! 

Watermelon Rancher Martini from Sugar Factory PH
Watermelon Rancher Martini for 200Php - w/o alcohol | 450Php w/alcohol

I liked this one. Bias towards watermelon, I found this drink light and refreshing, even with the alcohol. 

German Chocolate Cake Martini from Sugar Factory PH
German Chocolate Cake Martini for 200Php - w/o alcohol | 380Php w/alcohol

This was my favorite because chocolate and Martini! It's the ultimate drink for a chocolate lover with a good chocolate flavor, just the right proportion of alcohol. The rim was even lined with chocolate, coconut and pecan. So good!

Sugar Factory may not play well when it comes to their food but their drinks are something that you should try specially if you like milkshakes and cocktails!

3 for the food + 4 for the drinks = 3.5 Stars for Sugar Factory!
