House of Silvanas has been specializing in Silvanas for over 30 years and pride ourselves in making freshly baked goodies with the best ingredients and care. Aside from Silvanas, we are also known for Sans Rival, Ensaimadas, and our assortment of Pastry Bars.
Silvanas are crunchy and creamy frozen cookies. It has layer of butter-cream sandwiched between two cashew-meringue wafers, coated with cookie crumbs. It is best described as the cookie version of a Sans Rival, a popular classic Filipino dessert. They look like French Macaroons, but it should not be mistaken for them.
Three generations of home baked goodness.
My Mother Mary Ann Sagarbarria started selling Silvanas to friends and acquaintances in Manila in 1978. My grandmother Trining Teves-Sagarbarria who owned Sans Rival Cakes and Pastries a popular bakeshop in Dumaguete City, Shared her recipes with my mother before my parents relocated to Manila.
Through word of mouth, the "House of Silvanas" in San Lorenzo Village continued to grow even as it remained home based until 1995, when it opened its first outlet in Metro Manila.
In 2005 my wife Crissy Cantada-Sagarbarria and I opened House of Silvanas in Daly City, California -- Just 15 minutes south from San Francisco. Continuing the legacy of home baked goodness. We are a small hidden bakeshop in the City Heights complex known for our friendly personalized service.
