Try out some original artisan ice cream at Kakka Dairy Bar!

In the mood for some artisan ice cream? 

While you can find several ice cream stalls at malls and various food parks in Cebu, restaurants specializing in these cold and tasty desserts are rare. 

Fortunately, Cebu food culture is ever-improving, and many fresh faces are bringing their spin on this classic treat. 

Customers can’t help but admire the aesthetics of this ice cream parlor.

Kakka Dairy Bar is the newest ice cream parlor in Cebu City, offering original flavors to customers who are craving this delicious dessert.

The local business started in Cebu City in 2019 with Pastry Chef Karla Tan creating homemade flavors inspired by the local food scene. 

The cafe opened in Vibo Place, a business district with stylish restaurants located on North Escario Street.

This chic cafe in Cebu City offers a variety of original ice cream flavors.


Kakka takes inspiration from cakes, pastries, candy bars, local ingredients, and other Filipino delicacies for its original selection of ice cream flavors. 

Thanks to their authentic ingredients, they are able to produce flavors that you will not find anywhere else in Cebu. Sweet and full of flavor, these mouthwatering treats will get you coming back for more. 

With an emphasis on artisan ice cream, you won’t find the usual classics like Chocolate, Vanilla, or Strawberry. Instead, the establishment added their own twist to these classic flavors. 

For instance, they added M&Ms to their Milk Chocolate flavor and have Fresh Milk instead of Vanilla. Other specialties include Toasted Rice, Pistachio Nut, and Blueberry Cheesecake. 

As for their local flavors, they have Tableya and Ube Leche Flan.  

They also have flavors that are inspired by lesser-known cakes like Isaphan and Speculoos to introduce customers to a newer, more refreshing taste. 

This cafe in Cebu City is pretty generous with its servings. One scoop is big enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, while two or three scoops can be shareable. 

Each serving comes with a waffle cone tip on top, adding to the already delicious frozen treat. You also have the option to add different types of toppings to your ice cream.

For those who want something other than ice cream, Kakka Dairy Bar also has chocolate chip cookies and egg tarts. You may even be interested in trying out their selection of brewed coffee drinks. 

This ice cream parlor has a relaxing ambiance to unwind or get some work done.


Upon entering the ice cream parlor, you will immediately notice the colorful yet minimalistic design that adds to the overall aesthetic of the place. The walls, cups, and cones are arranged in a colorful pattern to define the cafe’s branding.

Local art duo Happy Garaje conceptualized most of the interior design. These Cebuano artists are famous for their branding for Abaca Baking Company and the Mango Jeeps. 

Aside from the delicious desserts and ice cream flavors, you will also come to admire the fun-loving ambiance of the place. The pastel design on the walls gives it a youthful vibe to make you feel like a kid who is enjoying their favorite dessert. 

Some of the decorations include traditional and contemporary dishers that showcase the progression of ice cream over the years. Although the place is small, it’s spacious and comfortable enough for you to sit back and enjoy your frozen treat.

The ambiance, paired with their delicious artisan ice cream, makes for one heck of an Instagrammable cafe in Cebu City. 

If you’re looking to try a unique dessert in Cebu, a cup of delectable homegrown ice cream might do the trick. Give Kakka Dairy Bar a visit and have a taste of their distinct flavors. 

Whether you’re alone or with friends and loved ones, you’re sure to fall in love with what this artisan ice cream parlor has to offer!
