The Abaca restaurant group opened its newest outlet that is fast becoming the trendiest bakeshop/cafe in Cebu. The Abaca Baking Company started serving fresh breads and pastries to Cebuanos a few weeks ago. It is located at the Crossroads Mall in Banilad. The Abaca brand has always been a favorite among upscale diners and this new bakery/cafe/coffee shop is another sure hit by the famed restaurant group.
While I got attracted by the smell and the feel of the place, I was truly mesmerized by the artworks on the walls of the cafe. The stylish cafe coffee doubles as an art gallery, as well. These paintings are from the +Qube Gallery .
My friend and I decided to get some brownies and a mixed berry cake. I was very surprised that the food was not too sweet. I love the texture and the contrast of flavors of the mixed berry cake. I really had an enjoyable time and I feel that the nearby La Marea now has a formidable competition.
For me, the cafe has the most beautiful menu. The menu cover is literally a work of art. The menu board art is made by +Happy Garaje .
Abaca Baking Company also serves salads, main courses, and appetizers. The choices for drinks are not only limited to coffee, tea, or juice, but also beer and wine.
