For the perfect picture, keep it simple with candid shots or a selfie!

Who doesn’t love 30 well-groomed, furry dog friends appearing on their Instagram page? Barkin’ Blends Dog Cafe, as the name suggests, spiked in popularity due to its four-legged  residents.

There’s no bad picture with these adorable bunch.

Recommended eats: A classic Ella Pesto (spinach noodles with fresh tuna chunks) priced at Php 146 with a unique blend of Rocksalt & Cheese Milk Tea (Php 100).

Picture this: fake hanging vines against the backdrop of red armchairs while bright lights glisten over wooden furniture similar to the sugar frosting on a log cake - and you’ll get the gist of the kitschy-christmassy vibe of The Cheesecake Fairy. Our advice for the perfect photo? Add humour by accessorising excessively! Don a funky hat or a colorful scarf to match the whimsical deco - it’s the wackier, the better approach at The Cheesecake Fairy.

Recommended eats: Forgo the usual mains and chow down on the Pecan Cheesecake, Salted Caramel Cheesecake, Ube Cheesecake and unique Burnt Cheesecake priced at Php 250 per slice.

Address: Evia, Daang Hari Road, Almanza Dos, Las Pinas, Metro Manila, Philippines

6. Vanilla Cupcake Bakery

The unusual deco pairings include frilled pendant lights, padded armchairs in outrageous prints and inspirational wallpapers that add a touch of quirkiness to your photos.
