Larcy♥s Cupcakery Cafe in BF!

Larcy's Cupcakery Cafe-6.jpg
As we were driving along Aguirre Street in BF Homes, Paranaque City, we couldn't help but notice the Larcy's Cupcakery Cafe that opened  this holiday season.

Ever since Sonja's Cupcakes opened in Sept. 2006, most of the bakers that specialized on cupcakes are either home-based or bazaristas, and no one has a full-blown bakery, and cafe with an all-day breakfast. 

"Who is Larcy?", I asked myself because I was impressed that she has opened with a wholistic-brand approach and focused on niche-marketing  - the "Cupcakery Cafe" concept.

Check out why Larcy's will be the coolest place for desserts and after-meal hangout in the BF area:


Blugre Coffee-1.jpg
The husband-and-wife tandem of Gatchi and Larcy Gatchalian is more known for the most- raved about Blugre Coffee in Davao which they established in 1998.

Durian de leche Cheesecake
Blugre was also famous in the foodie's circle for the Durian de leche cheesecake that Larcy has created.

Since their daughter is now studying in Ateneo, they decided to sell the Blugre Coffee business. The family then moved back to Manila, bought a lot in BF and established the Larcy's Cupcakery Cafe.

Larcy's  Café  is girlish highlighted by the color pink and hearts, and every inch  carefully designed to provide the Cupcakery ambiance.

There are plenty of tables and nooks to choose from that are conducive for hanging out with the barkada.

(Although, the acoustic is bad and could get distracting with the chattering of the customers)

The second floor has two function rooms (capacity of 20 each) and an alfresco balcony seats which are more conducive for intimate conversations (and smoking sessions).

For a romantic dessert for two, these are our preferred seats :)

Larcy's Signature Cupcakes, Chocolatey Cupcakes | Fruity Cupcakes, Cheesy & Creamy Cupcakes, Monster Cupcakes | Larcy's Menu: Rice, Sandwiches, Pica-Pica, Chocolate, Coffee and Freeze Drinks

It was the perfect desserts place in BF with innovative flavors like Tamarind cupcake and hopefully a Durian cupcake version. (We’ll try the dishes next time)

You can see Larcy in the open kitchen set-up frosting the cupcakes herself.

One of their bestsellers is the Pink Velvet, their own take on the Red Velvet craze.

Pink Velvet (P65/cupcake).

I like the attention to details of serving the cupcake on a special cupcake holder. I love the cupcake icing which is more creamy than sugary. The freshly-baked cupcake is a bit light, spongy and dry. We prefer our cupcakes to be moist.

Valrohna Triple Chocolate (P75/cupcake).

The chocolate cupcake is just the right size, good value pricing, and nice chocolatey flavor.

Hot Latte (P95)

Their coffee is expected to be good based on their Blugre expertise. The coffee beans are specially blended for them and come a bit strong for me.

They have special pink boxes if you want to take out the cupcakes as gifts.

Love the Cupcake Monster shirts and the overall Larcy's Cupcakery merchandising.

Congratulations to Larcy and Gatchi Gatchalian for a successful Larcy's Cupcakery Cafe opening :)

I felt an instant connection with Gatchi who was a former P&Ger with P&G Sales based in Davao/Mindanao area and we have common P&G friends -- Sonny de Leon, Ferdie Insigne, Levi Labra, et al.

Overall, we love the neighborhood cupcakery ambiance conducive for desserts when you are food tripping in the BF area. I personally like the icing on  their cupcakes but we prefer cupcakes that are moist ala “melt-in-the mouth” type. 

It was a good move not to bring Blugre here in Manila but instead set up a new niche concept. I do hope Larcy comes up soon with a Durian de leche cupcake equivalent :) Congratulations to the successful opening!
