Dalaguete may be the main source of vegetables in Cebu, but it has also become one of the destinations of nature lovers and weekend warriors. The town hosts the main jump off point to Osmeña Peak as well as a number of natural springs. In addition, one of the barangays of the town is home to a valley that is the breeding ground of flying foxes.
Similar to other towns in Cebu, Dalaguete considers its torta to be the best in the market. Their version of the torta is a combination of a cupcake and a mamon. It has a golden brown hue and is normally puffed. Sugar normally tops this tasty little pastry from the Vegetable Basket of Cebu. It also features a crack in the middle, prompting some people to call it the torta pinaliki (cracked).
In addition to the torta, Dalaguete also has a number of other delicacies for local and foreign tourists. These delicacies include their tostado, pordrida, bibingka, and the much sought after banana meat.
